BOOK TITLE: "Security of Self-Organizing Networks: MANET, WSN, WMN, VANET"*

*To be published by: *
*/Auerbach Publications, CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, USA/*

Security is an indispensable issue for any type of self-organizing
wireless network. To solve different security related issues in wireless
networks, researchers have been putting various efforts and coming up
with innovative ideas. Within the last few years, we have seen a steep
growth of research works particularly on various security issues in
different types of self-organizing wireless networks. These works
address various types of networks like mobile wireless ad hoc networks
(MANET), wireless sensor networks (WSN), wireless mesh networks (WMN),
vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), etc. The objective of this book is to
gather recent advancements in the fields of security in self-organizing
wireless networks as well as to provide the readers with the essential
information about wireless network security. The topics of interest
include, but are not limited to (for MANET, WSN, WMN, VANET):
- Secure routing and transport
- Secure in-network processing
- Security services and architecture
- Key management issues
- Trust and privacy
- Secure deployment
- Access control and authentication
- Intrusion detection
- Denial of service

*_Submission Details:_*

Each manuscript must be written in a tutorial manner so that it can be
easily accessible for the readers outside the specialty of the area.
Expected manuscript length is between 9,500 to 12,500 words. Manuscripts
submitted for the book must be original, must not be previously
published or currently under review anywhere. Interested authors are

proposed chapter. Please use only MS-Word format for submission of the
final manuscript. Abstract of the tentative chapter should be mailed to
the corresponding editor as soon as possible and no later than May 20,
2009. Each manuscript must contain five basic sections (with exact
headings): Introduction, Background, Future Directions for Research,
Conclusions, and References. Authors may also add any other extra
section of their choice if necessary with different title. After the
'References' section, 7-10 terminologies/keywords should be included. In
addition, 10-15 questions and their sample answers/solutions should be
included at the end of the chapter, which could help the potential
readers. The authors may be requested to modify the contents of the
chapters if deemed necessary to maintain the consistency of the entire
book and to include the most up-to-date information about each topic. A
PowerPoint presentation of 25-35 pages should be provided for each
chapter after the final acceptance so that they can be used for
classroom teaching. Upon acceptance of the manuscript, the corresponding
author will be sent guidelines for preparing the camera-ready copy of
the chapter. Authors of accepted chapters are also required to sign an
agreement of copyright transfer and an originality statement to the
publisher. The first author of each chapter will be sent a free
examination copy of the book.
