IEEE CNS 2014 - IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security
San Francisco, USA -- October 29-31, 2014

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 last year’s inaugural conference, IEEE 
CNS 2014 solicits proposals for workshops in conjunction with the conference 
to be held in San Francisco from October 29 to 31, 2014 (www.ieee-cns.org). 
Workshops will take place on Friday, October 31.  

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 chairs by March 15, 2014. 

A workshop proposal should contain at least the following information:
- Workshop title
- Motivation, rationale, and proposed format for the workshop
- A draft "Call for Papers" articulating the scope and topics covered 
  by the workshop
- The workshop deadlines, both internal and external. 
  See below for important external deadlines
- Expected number of submissions and acceptance rate
- Expected number of attendees
- Program chair(s), and if available, tentative program committee
- A one-paragraph biographical sketch for each main organizer, 
  describing relevant qualifications in research and conference/workshop
  organizing experience
- Past history of the workshop, if any, including number of submissions,
  number of accepted papers, and number of registered attendees for the
  most recent incarnation of the workshop. 

Each workshop proposal will be carefully evaluated based on the following
- The workshop is within the scope of communications and network security
- An important technical topic of high interest and high impact in 
  the community
- Novelty with respect to other CNS workshops and forums
- Potential to attract high participation
