Call for Papers

Future wireless systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are networked, organized, configured, optimized, and recovered automatically, based on their operating situations. Emerging Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) applications aim to bring people, data, processes, and things together, to fulfill the needs of our everyday lives. With the emergence of software defined networks, adaptive services and applications are gaining much attention since they allow automatic configuration of devices and their parameters, systems, and services to the user's context change. It is expected that upcoming Fifth Generation and Beyond (5G&B) wireless networks, known as more than an extension to 4G, will be the backbone of IoT and CPS, and will support IoT systems by expanding their coverage, reducing latency and enhancing data rate. However, there are several challenges to be addressed to provide resilient connections supporting the massive number of often resource constrained IoT and other wireless devices. Hence, due to several unique features of emerging applications, such as low latency, low cost, low energy consumption, resilient and reliable connections, traditional communication protocols and techniques are not suitable.

In this regard, it is crucial to have security by design in 5G and beyond wireless networks, considering the constraints imposed by heterogeneous IoT and CPS systems. Our aim is to promote the development of 5G security by design. The proposed INFOCOM 2023 workshop Wireless-Sec will serve as a forum for researchers from academia, government, and industries, to exchange ideas, present new results, and provide future visions on these topics.
