SERE 2012 : The Sixth International Conference on Sofware Security and Reliability
Call For Papers
In 2006, the IEEE Reliability Society made a strategic decision to launch an annual conference focusing on security and reliability. This resulted in the establishment of an International Conference on Secure Software Integration and Reliability Improvement (SSIRI). From this year onward, the conference has been renamed to International Conference on Software Security and Reliability (SERE), with SE representing SEcurity and RE for REliability, to make the focus of the conference more easily recognizable.
SERE 2012 is the sixth annual conference which brings together a wide range of researchers and practitioners to present their on-going ideas, experiences, and outcomes of most recent research, and to exchange their best-of-breed practices for developing reliable, secure, and trustworthy software in a more effective and efficient way. It not only allows the academic community to gain an increased awareness of the areas that are vital to the software industry, but also grants practitioners an opportunity to express their needs. The conference will be held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, an agency of the U.S. Department of Commerce, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, less than one hour from Washington D.C.
