= SAW 2015 =
= The 2nd International Workshop on Software Assurance =
to be held in conjunction with the 10th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security
(ARES 2015 –

August 24-28, 2015
Université Paul Sabatier
Toulouse, France

Software security is drawing more attention from the software engineering community, in part due to the many highly publicized attacks exploiting software vulnerabilities. Software increasingly affects our daily lives: our social networks, our automobiles, our smart home systems, our smart phones, and our financial well-being.

Although many attempts have been made to improve software security over the years, the focus of these efforts has traditionally been limited to just a few tools and techniques such as static analysis, penetration testing, and secure coding.

We believe that the scope of software security is much wider than those heavily studied research areas and would like to invite researchers to explore other facets of software security, which have not been as thoroughly studied.

Topics of interest comprise but are not limited to:
* Software safety and its relationship to security
* Secure software design/architecture
* Security frameworks and their adoption
* Security patterns
* Agile methodologies and software security
* Security analysis tools and methods
* Software security metrics Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) and software Security
* Secure software development process
* Software security risk Management
* IT auditing and its relationship to secure software Engineering
* Business continuity planning and its relationship to secure software Engineering
* Malware detection/intrusion detection
* Obfuscation and software security
