It is our great pleasure to invite you to the Sixth Central Area Networking and Security Workshop (CANSec 2014).

The CANSec workshop brings together researchers and practitioners in security and networking related fields in the central area of the US. It was originally named KanSec (for Greater Kansas Area Security Workshop), and later changed to CANSec as the workshop expanded well beyond the Kansas area. Since spring of 2012, the workshop has attracted attendees from Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, etc. We have also invited guest speakers from Texas, Indiana, Colorado, South Carolina, Virginia, etc.

The goal of the CANSec workshop is to provide a regular forum for presenting research and education activities in all areas related to computer security and networking, as well as promoting interactions and collaborations among scholars and students and between academia and industry.

To receive announcements about the CANSec workshop, please join our Google Group.
