2nd Workshop on Communication Security (WCS 2017)
affiliated with EUROCRYPT 2017
Paris (France), April 30, 2017

CALL FOR PAPERS
===================================

In the last few years we have seen a rising interest and dialogue 
between two distinct approaches to security: the well-established
field of cryptography and the recently explored field of physical-layer 
(or information-theoretic) security.
The two approaches are based on different assumptions and have
developed their own performance metrics and methodologies, as well
as their own implemented solutions.
A seminal work by Bellare, Tessaro and Vardy in 2012 plays the role
of a Rosetta Stone by putting side by side metrics and languages of
the two fields and establishing a bridge between them.
Furthermore, engineers have been studying how to integrate solutions
from both fields in their products rather than relying exclusively
on one of the two, confirming the interest in bridging the two
approaches.
This workshop aims at getting together experts from both fields to 
continue this promising joint research path of physical-layer security 
and cryptography.
The one-day event will include the presentation of peer-reviewed papers 
and two prominent keynote talks by Jean-Claude Belfiore (Telecom 
ParisTech), and by Stefano Tessaro (University of California, Santa 
Barbara).

Contributions are solicited on topics including (but not limited to):
- Semantic security for the wiretap channel
- Coding strategies for semantic security
- Adversarial wiretap channels
- Joint physical layer-cryptography solutions for secure wireless 
communications
- Cross-disciplinary solutions for authentication
- Secure cross-layer design techniques
- Physical-layer enhanced cryptography

Prospective authors are invited to submit novel, previously unpublished
scientific contributions for peer review at:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wcs2017

Contributions will be published as chapters of a Springer book in the 
LNEE series.
