The MADNES conference accepts original research papers on all security and fault tolerance aspects of constrained network environments. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETS), mobile agents, sensor networks and radio frequency devices (RFID):
instructions for authors
All papers must be submitted electronically by the new deadline of June 12, 2006 @ 5.00pm EDT. Secure MADNES’06 submission and review is managed by the COCUS system. You must first register an account, or if already registered, login to COCUS at the following URL:
All submitted papers should be in PDF format. The llncs style is available for download at COCUS and is optional (but strongly recommended) for initial submission and required for the camera-ready version.
Submissions must not substantially duplicate works that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference/workshop with proceedings. Each paper should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords. Papers should be in Portable Document Format (.pdf), approximately 12 pages excluding bibliography and appendices, and approximately 18 pages total using at least 11-point fonts and with reasonable margins. Committee members are not required to read appendices; the paper should be intelligible without them. Submissions not meeting these guidelines risk rejection without consideration of their merits. It is strongly preferred that submissions be processed in LaTeX according to the instructions at http://www.springer.de/ comp/lncs/authors.html, since this will be a mandatory requirement for the final version of papers. Authors of an accepted paper must guarantee that at least one of the authors will attend the conference and present their paper.
The proceedings of Secure MADNES’05 will be published in a Springer volume (LNCS). We expect that the proceedings of Secure MADNES’06 will be similarly published as a volume through a prestigious scientific outlet.
