IEEE CNS 2016: Less Than One Week Away!



IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (IEEE CNS)
17-19 October 2016, Philadelphia, PA USA.


Early registration ends on September 23, 2016.


IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) is a conference 
series in IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) core conference portfolio and 
the only ComSoc conference focusing solely on cyber security. IEEE CNS is also 
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.


Two exciting keynotes and two technology-oriented panels:




- Speaker 1: Dr. Don Towsley, Professor, University of Massachusetts Amherst


Don Towsley holds a B.A. in Physics (1971) and a Ph.D. in Computer Science 
(1975) from University of Texas.  He is currently a Distinguished Professor at 
the University of Massachusetts in the School of Computer Science.  He has held 
visiting positions at numerous universities and research labs. His research 
interests include networks and performance evaluation.

He is co-founder and Co-EiC of the new ACM Transactions on Modeling and 
Performance Evaluation of COmputing Systems (TOMPECS), and has served as 
Editor-in-Chief of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking and on numerous 
editorial boards.  He has served as Program Co-chair of several conferences 
including INFOCOM 2009.

He is a corresponding member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences and has 
received several achievement awards including the 2007 IEEE Koji Kobayashi 
Award and the 2011 INFOCOM Achievement Award. He has received numerous paper 
awards including the 2012 ACM SIGMETRICS Test-of-Time Award and a 2008 SIGCOMM 
Test-of-Time Paper Award, and the 1998 IEEE Communications Society William 
Bennett Best Paper Award. Last, he has been elected Fellow of both the ACM and 


- Speaker 2: Dr. Cliff Wang, Division Chief of Computing Sciences, US Army 
Research Office


Dr. Cliff Wang graduated from North Carolina State University with a PhD in 
computer engineering in 1996. He has been carrying out research in the area of 
computer vision, medical imaging, high speed networks, and most recently 
information security. He has authored over 40 technical papers and 3 Internet 
standards RFCs. Dr. Wang also authored/edited for 13 books in the area of 
information security and hold 3 US patents on information security system 
development. Since 2003, Dr. Wang has been managing extramural research 
portfolio on information assurance at US Army Research Office. In 2007 he was 
selected as the director of the computing sciences division at ARO while in the 
same time managing his program in cyber security. For the past ten years, Dr. 
Wang managed over $100M research funding which led to significant technology 
breakthroughs. Dr. Wang also holds adjunct faculty position at both Department 
of Computer Science and Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at 
North Carolina State University.
