Call For Papers

The ESSoS Doctoral Symposium 2012 (ESSoS-DS) will be held in Eindhoven,
The Netherlands on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 in conjunction with the
ESSoS 2012 Symposium.

ESSoS-DC 2012 aims at providing PhD students an opportunity to discuss
their research in Engineering Secure Software and Systems (ESSoS) in an
international forum, and with a panel of well-known experts in the
field. The goal of the Doctoral Symposium is to provide students with a
welcoming atmosphere to present their research and receive useful
feedback from senior researchers. It will be as well a good opportunity
for meeting and sharing experiences with other PhD students addressing
similar topics or at a similar stage in their doctoral work. This way
the students will obtain guidance both on the academic content of their
current work and regarding the potential future research trajectories.

PhD students carrying out research in Engineering Secure Software and
Systems are invited to submit a position paper to the PhD Symposium.
Papers will be peer-reviewed by the Symposium's program committee
members. The criteria used for accepting a paper include potential
quality of the research, contribution of the work to the ESSoS field,
originality of the work, and overall quality of the position paper.

PhD proposals fitting to the ESSoS conference topics are especially
encouraged. This includes a diversity of topics such as but not limited

• scalable techniques for threat modeling and analysis of
• specification and management of security requirements and policies
• security architecture and design for software and systems
• model checking for security
• specification formalisms for security artifacts
• verification techniques for security properties
• systematic support for security best practices
• security testing
• security assurance cases
• programming paradigms, models and DSL's for security
• program rewriting techniques
• processes for the development of secure software and systems
• security-oriented software reconfiguration and evolution
• security measurement
• automated development
• trade-off between security and other non-functional requirements
• support for assurance, certification and accreditation
