Prof. Yan Chen served as the Technical Program Committee (TPC) Co-Chair of IEEE Networking and Communication Security (CNS) Conference 2014.

Prof. Yan Chen served as the Technical Program Committee (TPC) Co-Chair of IEEE Networking and Communication Security (CNS) Conference 2014, held Oct. 26-28 in San Francisco, CA. CNS is the flagship security conference of IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc).

Prof. Yan ChenIEEE 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. 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 security.

Building on the success of last year’s inaugural conference, IEEE CNS 2014 seeks original high-quality technical papers from academia, government, and industry. Topics of interest encompass all practical and theoretical aspects of communications and network security, all the way from the physical layer to the various network layers to the variety of applications reliant on a secure communication substrate. Submissions with main contribution in other areas, such as information security, software security, system security, or applied cryptography, will also be considered if a clear connection to secure communications/networking is demonstrated.
