Call For Papers

ACM SIGSAC 14th Workshop on Programming Languages and Analysis for Security (PLAS 2019)
Friday November 15, 2019 - London, UK (Co-located with ACM CCS 2019)

PLAS is a forum for exploring and evaluating the use of programming language and program analysis techniques for promoting security in the complete range of software systems, from compilers to machine learnt models. The workshop encourages proposals of new, speculative ideas, evaluations of new or known techniques in practical settings, and discussions of emerging threats and problems. We also host position papers that are radical, forward-looking, and lead to lively and insightful discussions influential to the future research at the intersection of programming languages and security.

The scope of PLAS includes, but is not limited to:

- *NEW THIS YEAR*: Programming language techniques and verification applied to security in other domains (e.g. adversarial learning)
- Compiler-based security mechanisms (e.g. security type systems) or runtime-based security mechanisms (e.g. inline reference monitors)
- Program analysis techniques for discovering security vulnerabilities
- Automated introduction and/or verification of security enforcement mechanisms
- 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 IoT
- Applications, case studies, and implementations of these techniques

* Sponsors

- Carnegie Mellon University CyLab Security and Privacy Institute

Sponsorship opportunities are available. See the call for sponsors for more information:

* Call for Papers
We invite both full papers and short papers. For short papers we especially encourage the submission of position papers that are likely to generate lively discussion.

Full papers should be at most 11 pages long, plus as many pages as needed for references 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 5 pages long, plus as many pages as needed for references. Papers that present radical, open-ended and forward-looking ideas are particularly welcome in this category, as are papers presenting preliminary and exploratory work. Authors submitting papers in this category must prepend the phrase "Short Paper:" to the title of the submitted paper. Short paper presentations will be 15 minutes each. Submissions should be PDF documents typeset in the ACM proceedings format using 10pt fonts. A SIGPLAN-approved template can be found at SIGPLAN Author Information. We recommend using this template.

Both full and short papers must describe work not published in other refereed venues (see the SIGPLAN republication policy 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 can be made via Easychair:

* Important Dates
Paper submission: FINAL EXTENSION: Wednesday July 17, 2019 (AoE) (Abstract Only); Friday July 19, 2019 (AoE) (Paper)
