Call for papers: Communication and Security Systems

A special issue of International Journal of Intelligent Engineering Informatics

Communications security is the discipline of preventing unauthorized interceptors from accessing telecommunications in an intelligible form, while still delivering content to the intended recipients. No-one wants his or her confidential or classified information revealed. Confidential information that you do not want to share with others is the easiest to protect, but every so often there is a need to share this type of information. Whenever this happens, you need to be able to send the information in a secure manner to your trusted receiver. This issue is particularly important when network communication is involved, since network communication has become the cornerstone for organizational effectiveness and today’s digital communication often includes sensitive information such as control and corporate financial data. Consequently, we need security mechanisms whenever sensitive information is to be exchanged over the network.

Possible topics include but are not limited to, the following:
  • Mobile communications
  • Wireless communications
  • Security systems
  • Data communications
  • Intelligent communications and networks
  • Network and information security
  • Signal generation and modelling
  • Spectrum sensing and dynamic spectrum sharing
  • Design and analysis of quantisers and coder/decoders
  • Cryptography
  • Telematics
  • Source coding
  • Decoding algorithms
  • Detection theory
  • Estimation theory
  • Information and differential entropy
  • Channel capacity
  • Coding methods for wireless applications, including error control strategies for wireless networks
Important Dates
Submission deadline: 28 February, 2011
First decision notification: 30 March, 2011
Submission of revised papers: 30 April, 2011
Final decision notification: 15 May, 2011
