DIMACS Workshop on Information-Theoretic Network Security

 November 12 - 14, 2012
 DIMACS Center, CoRE Building, Rutgers University

   Yingbin Liang, Syracuse University, yliang06 at syr.edu

Presented under the auspices of the DIMACS Special Focus on
Algorithmic Foundations of the Internet and the DIMACS Special Focus
on Cybersecurity.

Workshop Announcement

Information theoretic security has emerged as a promising new approach
for achieving secure network communications at various protocol
layers. In particular, it holds promise for wireless networks that
have little or no infrastructure, possess limited computational
resources, and are subject to dynamically changing environments. In
recent years, this topic has been studied extensively for wireless
networks with a view to providing guidelines for implementing
associated techniques in current and future systems.

Information theoretic security has intriguing connections to important
areas of research including cryptography, signal processing,
networking, and quantum computation. Thus, advancement of information
theoretic security will benefit substantially from interaction with
researchers from these diverse communities. The Workshop will be a
collective forum for researchers and practitioners in network
security, from academia as well as industry, which seeks to motivate
and explore interdisciplinary collaborations.

The Workshop will consist of invited talks by leading researchers and
practitioners, and invited poster presentations by postdoctoral
researchers and graduate students, punctuated by adequate time for
discussion. Topics will include information theoretic security, secure
coding, cryptography, wireless network security, quantum approach to
security, and security in practical networks.

Call for Participation:

Talks are by invitation only.

Attendance at the workshop is open to all interested participants
(subject to space limitations). Please register to attend this
