Call for Poster Papers

EAI SecureComm 2021 will host a session for short papers (6-11 pages) to be presented as posters. Poster presentations are best suited to research in progress, emerging research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches which are as yet insufficient for a regular SecureComm paper submission. 


  • Network security and privacy (for all types of networks such as wired, wireless, mobile, hybrid, sensor, vehicular, satellite, 5G, 6G, ad hoc, peer-to-peer, and software-defined networks)
  • Attacks on telecommunications and networking (e.g., malware, botnets, DoS, MitM, relay attacks, side channel attacks, phishing/pharming, DNS poisoning/hijacking, address spoofing, cybersquatting)
  • Security protocols at all network layers and for different applications (e.g., for secure routing, naming/addressing, network management, remote authentication and attestation)
  • Physical layer security (e.g., jamming, GPS spoofing)
  • Systems security with a strong secure communication and networking element (e.g., security in cloud, edge and fog computing, IoT, RFID, cyber-physical sysytems, teleconferencing)
  • Network intrusion detection and prevention, firewalls, packet filters
  • Web and mobile security & privacy
  • Anonymous communications and other forms of privacy-enhancing or privacy-aware communications (e.g., Tor, darknet)
  • Distributed ledger technologies (blockchain and cryptocurrencies)
  • Internet censorship and countermeasures
  • Resilience of computer networks and critical infrastructures
  • Visualisation of secure communications and networking
  • Cyber (both offensive and defensive) deception related to secure communications and networking (e.g., honeypots / honeytokens, cyber fraud)
  • False information online including mis-, dis- and mal-information
  • Moving target defence
  • Information hiding (steganography, steganalysis, and digital watermarking)
  • Privacy-preserving computing in secure communication and networking
  • Cryptographic systems for secure communications and networking (e.g., key management, multi-party computing, homomorphic encryption, broadcast encryption, secret sharing schemes, etc.)
  • Quantum key distribution and other quantum-based secure communications
  • Network, internet and cloud forensics
  • Cyber threat intelligence and cyber incident responses
  • Cybercrime investigation and attribution
  • Data leakage/loss prevention/protection (DLP)
  • Secure communication and networking applications (e.g., industry 4.0, energy, smart cities, transportation, water, logistics, waste)
  • Security and privacy of contact tracing and other COVID-19 related digital interventions with a core element on telecommunications or networking
  • Socio-technical aspects of secure communications and networking (e.g., usability, human behaviours, legal issues, cybercrime, economics
