*IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS) 17-19
October 2016, Philadelphia, PA USA.*

*Early registration ends on September 23, 2016.*

IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) is a
conference series in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) core conference
portfolio and the only ComSoc conference focusing solely on cyber security.
IEEE CNS is also a spin-off of IEEE INFOCOM, the premier ComSoc conference
on networking. The goal of CNS is to provide an outstanding forum for cyber
security researchers, practitioners, policy makers, and users to exchange
ideas, techniques and tools, raise awareness, and share experience related
to all practical and theoretical aspects of communications and network

*Two exciting keynotes and two technology-oriented panels:*


*- Speaker 1: Dr. Don Towsley, Professor, University of Massachusetts

*Don Towsley holds a B.A. in Physics (1971) and a Ph.D. in Computer Science
(1975) from University of Texas.  He is currently a Distinguished Professor
at the University of Massachusetts in the School of Computer Science.  He
has held visiting positions at numerous universities and research labs. His
research interests include networks and performance evaluation. He is
co-founder and Co-EiC of the new ACM Transactions on Modeling and
Performance Evaluation of COmputing Systems (TOMPECS), and has served as
Editor-in-Chief of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and on numerous
editorial boards.  He has served as Program Co-chair of several conferences
including INFOCOM 2009. He is a corresponding member of the Brazilian
Academy of Sciences and has received several achievement awards including
the 2007 IEEE Koji Kobayashi Award and the 2011 INFOCOM Achievement Award.
He has received numerous paper awards including the 2012 ACM SIGMETRICS
Test-of-Time Award and a 2008 SIGCOMM Test-of-Time Paper Award, and the
1998 IEEE Communications Society William Bennett Best Paper Award. Last, he
has been elected Fellow of both the ACM and IEEE.*

*- Speaker 2: Dr. Cliff Wang, Division Chief of Computing Sciences, US Army
Research Office*

*Dr. Cliff Wang graduated from North Carolina State University with a PhD
in computer engineering in 1996. He has been carrying out research in the
area of computer vision, medical imaging, high speed networks, and most
recently information security. He has authored over 40 technical papers and
3 Internet standards RFCs. Dr. Wang also authored/edited for 13 books in
the area of information security and hold 3 US patents on information
security system development. Since 2003, Dr. Wang has been managing
extramural research portfolio on information assurance at US Army Research
Office. In 2007 he was selected as the director of the computing sciences
division at ARO while in the same time managing his program in cyber
security. For the past ten years, Dr. Wang managed over $100M research
funding which led to significant technology breakthroughs. Dr. Wang also
holds adjunct faculty position at both Department of Computer Science and
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina State

            Yanchao Zhang, Arizona State University

CNS 2016 includes 38 regular papers, 5 workshops, 2 full panels, and a set
of posters. This year each technical session will host a mini-panel with
paper authors at the end of the session, and each poster author will give a
high-level presentation to highlight their work in the main conference.

CNS will feature the following five exciting workshops:

1. The 3rd Workshop on Physical-Layer Methods for Wireless Security
2. The Second International Workshop on Cognitive Radio and Electromagnetic
Spectrum Security (CRESS 2016)
3. The Network Forensics Workshop
4. The 2nd IEEE Workshop on Security and Privacy in the Cloud (SPC 2016)
5. CPS-Sec-International Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems Security
