Background and Aim

Wireless technologies have fueled IT and economic growth around the globe. The ever-growing wireless cyberspace is unfortunately accompanied by a commensurate increase in security threats, both originating from and directed at the wireless cyberspace. We are organizing this NSF Workshop on Wireless Security to help the research community better understand the critical need for security in future wireless networked systems and identify promising research directions to secure the wireless cyberspace. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners in multiple fields and provides a forum for an in-depth scientific discussion and debate on the critical security challenges facing the future wireless cyberspace. The outcome of this workshop will be a report that clearly identifies major research challenges in wireless security, exposes the research community to new and exciting interdisciplinary research problems, and articulates a vision of conducting fundamental and inter-disciplinary research in wireless security.

This workshop will take place on March 9-10, 2015 at Hilton Arlington, Virginia. Attendance to this workshop is by invitation only. Click here to view the list of confirmed participants.
