Call For Papers

Call for papers ESSoS

International Symposium on Engineering Secure Software and Systems
(ESSoS)

March 4 - 6, 2015, Milan, Italy
https://distrinet.cs.kuleuven.be/events/essos/2015/calls-papers.html

In cooperation with: (pending) ACM SIGSAC and SIGSOFT and IEEE CS (TCSP)


CONTEXT AND MOTIVATION

Trustworthy, secure software is a core ingredient of the modern world.
So is the Internet. Hostile, networked environments, like the Internet,
can allow vulnerabilities in software to be exploited from anywhere. To
address this, high-quality security building blocks (e.g.,
cryptographic components) are necessary, but insufficient. Indeed, the
construction of secure software is challenging because of the
complexity of modern applications, the growing sophistication of
security requirements, the multitude of available software technologies
and the progress of attack vectors. Clearly, a strong need exists for
engineering techniques that scale well and that demonstrably improve
the software's security properties.


GOAL AND SETUP

The goal of this symposium, which will be the sixth in the series, is
to bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the states
of the art and practice in secure software engineering. Being one of
the few conference-level events dedicated to this topic, it explicitly
aims to bridge the software engineering and security engineering
communities, and promote cross-fertilization. The symposium will
feature two days of technical program. In addition to academic papers,
the symposium encourages submission of high-quality, informative
industrial experience papers about successes and failures in security
software engineering and the lessons learned. Furthermore, the
symposium also accepts short idea papers that crisply describe a
promising direction, approach, or insight.


TOPICS

Paper submissions are solicited in all areas relating to secure
software and secure systems research, including but not limited to:

- Cloud security, virtualization for security
- Mobile devices security
- Automated techniques for vulnerability discovery and analysis
- Model checking for security
- Binary code analysis, reverse-engineering
- Programming paradigms, models, and domain-specific languages for
security
- Operating system security
- Verification techniques for security properties
- Malware: detection, analysis, mitigation
- Security in critical infrastructures
- Security economics
- Security by design
- Static and dynamic code analysis for security
- Web applications security
- Program rewriting techniques for security
- Security measurements
- Empirical secure software engineering
- Security-oriented software reconfiguration and evolution
- Computer forensics
- Processes for the development of secure software and systems
- Human-computer interaction for security
- Security testing
- Embedded software security


IMPORTANT DATES

Abstract submission: September 8, 2014
Paper submission: September 15, 2014
Author notification: November 17, 2014
Camera-ready: December 7, 2014


SUBMISSION AND FORMAT

The proceedings of the symposium are published by Springer-Verlag in
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series
(http://www.springer.com/lncs). Submissions should follow the
formatting instructions of Springer LNCS. Submitted papers must present
original, non-published work of high quality.

For selected papers, there will be an invitation to submit extended
versions to a special issue in the International Journal of Information
Security.

Two types of papers will be accepted:
- FULL PAPERS (max 14 pages without bibliography/appendices) - May
describe original technical research with a solid foundation, such as
formal analysis or experimental results, with acceptance determined
mostly based on novelty and validation. Or, may describe case studies
applying existing techniques or analysis methods in industrial
settings, with acceptance determined mostly by the general
applicability of techniques and the completeness of the technical
presentation details.

- IDEA PAPERS (max 8 pages with bibliography) - May crisply describe a
novel idea that is both feasible and interesting, where the idea may
range from a variant of an existing technique all the way to a vision
for the future of security technology. Idea papers allow authors to
introduce ideas to the field and get feedback, while allowing for later
publication of complete, fully-developed results. Submissions will be
judged primarily on novelty, excitement, and exposition, but
feasibility is required, and acceptance will be unlikely without some
basic, principled validation (e.g., extrapolation from limited
experiments or simple formal analysis). In the proceedings, idea papers
will clearly identified by means of the "Idea" tag in the title.
