Long version



Workshop on Foundations of Computer Security (FCS 2016)
27 June 2016, Lison, Portugal


Affiliated and co-located with IEEE CSF 2016



Submission deadline: April 10, 2016
Submission url: https://fcs2016.mpi-sws.org
Notification of acceptance: May 22, 2016
Workshop: June 27, 2016

All times are AoE (anywhere on earth).


Computer security is an established field of both theoretical and
practical significance. In recent years, there has been sustained
interest in the formal foundations of methods used in computer
security. The aim of the FCS 2016 workshop is to provide a forum for
the discussion of continued research in this area.

FCS 2016 welcomes papers on all topics related to the formal
underpinnings of security and privacy, and their applications.  The
scope of FCS 2016 includes, but is not limited to, formal
specification, analysis, and design of cryptographic protocols and
their applications; formal definitions of various aspects of security
such as access control mechanisms, mobile code security and
denial-of-service attacks; modeling of information flow and its
application to security policies, system composition, and covert
channel analysis; foundations of privacy; applications of formal
techniques to practical security and privacy.

We are interested in new theoretical results, in exploratory
presentations that examine open questions and raise fundamental
concerns about existing theories, and in the development of
security/privacy tools using formal techniques. Demonstrations of
tools based on formal techniques are welcome, as long as the
demonstrations can be carried out on a standard digital projector
(i.e., without any specialized equipment). We solicit the submission
of both mature work and work in progress.


FCS 2016 welcomes two kinds of submissions:

 * full papers (at most 12 pages, excluding references and well-marked

 * short papers (at most 4 pages, excluding references and well-marked

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee listed
below. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers
will be presented at the workshop. Short papers will receive as
rigorous a review as full papers. Short papers may receive shorter
talk slots than full papers, depending on the number of accepted

Papers should be formatted using the two-column IEEE proceedings style
available for various document preparation systems at the IEEE
Conference Publishing Services page:
The first page should include the paper's title, names of authors,
coordinates of the corresponding author(s), an abstract, and a list
of keywords. Committee members are not required to read appendices, so
papers must be intelligible without them. Papers not adhering to the
page limits may be rejected without consideration of their merits.

Authors are invited to submit their papers electronically at
https://fcs2016.mpi-sws.org. Papers must be in the PDF format.


FCS has no published proceedings. Presenting a paper at the workshop
should not preclude submission to or publication in other venues
(before, after or concurrently with FCS 2016). Papers presented at the
workshop will be made available to workshop participants, but this
will not constitute an official proceedings.


Bryan Ford (EPFL) will give the keynote talk at FCS 2016.
