CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

3rd IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security 
Florence, Italy -- September 28-30, 2015
http://cns2015.ieee-cns.org/

IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) is a new
conference series in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) core
conference portfolio and the only ComSoc conference focusing solely on
cyber security. IEEE CNS is a spin-off of IEEE INFOCOM, the premier
ComSoc conference on networking. Building on the success of the past
two years’ conferences, IEEE CNS 2015 solicits proposals for workshops
in conjunction with the conference to be held in Firenze, Italy, from
September 28 to 30, 2015 (www.ieee-cns.org). Workshops will take place
on Wednesday, September 30, 2015.

A workshop associated with CNS can be a full or half day in
length. Each workshop should provide a forum to address a specific
topic at the forefront of communications and network security
research. Workshop papers will be included in the CNS conference
proceeding and also IEEE Xplore.  Submissions of workshop proposals
must reach the workshop chair by April 3, 2015.

 security;
