CFP: Interoperability of Security and Communications

CFP: Interoperability of Security and Communications
Thu, September 14, 2006Call For Papers

This special session aims to bring together individuals involved in diverse disciplines of communications and security to provide insight and propose solutions in the emerging area of interoperability. The Session will be held at Cairns, Australia between February 21-23, 2007.

In recent years, communication networks have become more and more important, enabling information exchange among many different devices, networks and digital ecosystems. In order to enable this interaction, many communication standards have been defined. However, factors like modifications introduced by vendors and ambiguous definitions or statements in the standards have led to interoperability issues, especially in the security area. Analysis of the implementations of these standards must be carried out in order to confront these problems. This special session aims to bring together individuals involved in diverse disciplines of communications and security to provide insight and propose solutions in the emerging area of interoperability.

Topics of Interest: 

Topics of relevance include but are not limited to:

  • Interoperability issues and     limitations
  • Interoperability evaluation
  • Data and protocols     interoperability
  • Communication technologies     interoperability
  • Interoperability of     standards' implementations
  • Wireless technologies     interoperability
  • Security protocols and     architectures interoperability
  • Security implementations     interoperability
  • DEST interoperability

The goal for this session is to bring together individuals involved in diverse disciplines of communications and security to provide insight and propose solutions in the emerging area of interoperability. In this environment it should be possible to better identify current and future issues in the interoperability field, and propose novel techniques, methods and tools from different disciplines that focus on the different issues identified.
