Call For Papers

PLAS aims to provide a forum for exploring and evaluating ideas on the use of programming language and program analysis techniques to improve the security of software systems. Strongly encouraged are proposals of new, speculative ideas, evaluations of new or known techniques in practical settings, and discussions of emerging threats and important problems. The scope of PLAS includes, but is not limited to:

* Compiler-based security mechanisms or runtime-based security mechanisms such as inline reference monitors
* Program analysis techniques for discovering security vulnerabilities
* Automated introduction and/or verification of security enforcement mechanism
* Language-based verification of security properties in software, including verification of cryptographic protocols
* Specifying and enforcing security policies for information flow and access control
* Model-driven approaches to security
* Security concerns for web programming languages
* Language design for security in new domains such as cloud computing and embedded platforms
* Applications, case studies, and implementations of these techniques

Submission Guidelines

Two kinds of papers are invited:

Full papers should be at most 12 pages long including bibliography and appendices. Papers in this category are expected to have relatively mature content. Full paper presentations will be 25 minutes each.
Short papers should be at most 6 pages long including bibliography and appendices. Preliminary and exploratory work are welcome in this category. Short paper presentations will be 15 minutes each. Authors submitting papers in this category must prepend the phrase "Short Paper:" to the title of the submitted paper.

All submissions must be in English. Page limits are strict. Submissions must be PDF documents typeset in the ACM proceedings format using 10pt fonts. A SIGPLAN-approved template can be found at the following link: We recommend using this template.

Both full and short papers must describe work not published in other refereed venues (see the SIGPLAN republication policy at for more details). Accepted papers will appear in workshop proceedings, which will be distributed to the workshop participants and be available in the ACM Digital Library.

Submissions will be accepted through EasyChair at the following URL:
