5th IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS 2017)
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA -- October 9-11, 2017

IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) is a premier 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 security. 

The 5th IEEE CNS will be held in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada from October 9, 2017 
to October 11, 2017. Las Vegas, which in Spanish means ''The Meadows,'' is the leading 
financial, commercial, and cultural center for Southern Nevada. The city is one of 
the top three leading destinations in the U.S. for conventions, business and meetings. 
It is also internationally renowned for its entertainment industry - gambling, 
shopping, fine dining and nightlife. Las Vegas is well serviced by major domestic 
and international airlines, with direct flights from major U.S. Cities as well as 
major cities in Europe and worldwide.

The conference seeks submissions from academia, government, and industry presenting 
novel research results in all practical and theoretical aspects of communications 
and network security. Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Anonymity and privacy technologies
- Attacks and defenses
- Computer and network forensics
