The main goal of this conference is to promote research on all aspects of network security, as well as to build a bridge between research on cryptography and on network security. We therefore welcome scientific and academic papers with this focus. Previous CANS have been held in Taipei (2001), San Francisco (2002), Miami (2003), Xiamen (2005), Suzhou (2006), Singapore (2007), and Hong Kong (2008).
