Update: the submission site is now open.


                  ACM SIGPLAN Eighth Workshop on

        Programming Languages and Analysis for Security (PLAS)

                        June 20, 2013

                         Seattle, USA

                    Co-located with PLDI 2013


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.


Important Dates

Submissions due:        March 1, 2013

Notification:                   April 5, 2013

PLAS 2013 workshop: June 20, 2013


Call for papers

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


* Automated introduction and/or verification of security enforcement


* 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

We invite papers in two categories:

   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.

   Position papers should be at most 6 pages long including

   bibliography and appendices. Preliminary and exploratory work are

   welcome in this category. Position paper presentations will be 10

   minutes each. Authors submitting papers in this category must

   prepend the phrase Position Paper: to the title of the submitted


The submission site is open: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=plas2013

Submissions should be PDF documents typeset in the ACM proceedings format using 10pt fonts. SIGPLAN-approved templates can be found at http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm. We recommend using this format, which improves greatly on the ACM LaTeX format. All submissions must be in English. Page limits are strict.

Both full and position papers must describe work not published in other refereed venues (see the SIGPLAN republication policy at http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/republicationpolicy.htm for more details). Accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings which will be distributed to workshop participants and be available in the ACM Digital Library.
