The IEEE Conference on Communications and Network Security (CNS) provides 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.
Building on the success of the past three years' conferences, IEEE CNS 2016 welcomes poster submissions to be presented during the conference. A poster submission should be a 2-page abstract, which summarizes the key merits of proposed ideas, presents initial results, and identifies challenges to develop a complete solution. Abstracts will be evaluated by the Posters Session Committee based on the novelty and the potential to stimulate discussions and promote collaborations.

The conference will arrange the poster session in a room where the posters can be displayed. An accepted poster must be presented by an author in the poster session to interested attendees. The abstract of the accepted posters will appear in the conference proceedings and be submitted to IEEE Xplore. Each accepted poster requires an author to register for the conference at the appropriate rate based on the membership level. Each author registration can cover up to three posters or papers of the conference, but each poster must have a dedicated presenter at the session.
A Best Poster Award will be given based on the poster's novelty and potentials in research. The quality of presentation and the interaction during the session will also be important criteria. The award will be announced in a plenary session of the main conference.
