Baras Delivers ECC '07 Plenary, Publishes Paper on Wireless SecurityOn July 5, 2007, Dr. John S. Baras (ECE/ISR), delivered one of two plenary addresses at the 2007 European Control Conference (ECC’07), which was held at the Kos International Convention Center on the island of Kos, Greece, July 2-5, 2007. The title of Dr. Baras’ plenary lecture was “Security and Trust for Wireless Autonomic Networks: System and Control Methods.” More information is available at the conference web site: http://ecc07.ntua.gr.
In his lecture Professor Baras summarized his work and results, with University of Maryland ECE and ISR alumni Alvaro Cardenas, Tao Jiang, Svetlana Radosavac and George Theodorakopoulos, on the formulation, analysis and solution of various problems on security, information assurance and trust in dynamic wireless networks. These include detection and defense against attacks, detection of propagating viruses, evaluation of intrusion systems, attacks at the physical, MAC and routing protocols, trust establishment-dynamics- management. The focus of the lecture was to demonstrate persistently that systems and control models and methodologies provide new and powerful techniques to analyze these problems.

A long invited paper, with the same title, describing the results in the lecture, has been published in the special issue of the European Journal of Control entitled: Fundamental Issues of Control, EJC, Volume 13, Number 2-3, pp. 105-133, March-June 2007, and can be found at http://www.elet.polimi.it/ejc/, or at http://www.isr.umd.edu/~baras.
ECC'07 continued the tradition of the control conferences of the European Union Control Association (EUCA), which aims at stimulating contacts among academic and industrial professionals in the area of systems and control, and promoting scientific exchanges within the European Community and between Europe and other parts of the world.
