ETAPS 2017: European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software 

The European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS) is the primary European forum for academic and industrial researchers working on topics relating to Software Science. ETAPS, established in 1998, is a confederation of five main annual conferences (ESOP, FASE, FOSSACS, POST and TACAS) accompanied by satellite workshops and other events. The twentieth edition, ETAPS 2017, will take place in Uppsala, Sweden. This is the first time that ETAPS goes to Scandinavia.

POST 2017: 6th International Conference on Principles of Security and Trust

Principles of Security and Trust is a broad forum related to the theoretical and foundational aspects of security and trust. We seek submissions on the foundations of information security, privacy, and trust, relevant for computer science and different application disciplines. This includes results on cryptographic and logical foundations, reasoning methods, tools, and applications. Case studies that reflect the strengths and limitations of existing foundations, methods, and their supporting tools are also welcome, as are more exploratory presentations on open questions.

Areas of interest include:

Access control	
Cloud security
Covert channels	
Crypto foundations
Database security	
Distributed systems security	
Economic issues
Embedded systems security	
Hardware security	
Information flow
Languages for security	
Malicious code
Mobile security and privacy	
Models and policies	
Privacy and privacy-preserving systems
Reputation and trust	
Resource usage
Risk assessment	
Security architectures	
Security protocols
Trust management	
Web security and privacy

Systematization of knowledge papers

We solicit systematization of knowledge (SoK) papers that evaluate, systematize, and contextualize existing knowledge. Suitable papers are those that provide an important new viewpoint on established research areas, challenge long-held beliefs in such an area with compelling evidence, or present a comprehensive new taxonomy of such an area. Survey papers without such insights are not appropriate. Submissions should be distinguished by the suffix “(SoK)” in the title. They will be reviewed by the PC and held to the same standards as traditional research papers, except instead of emphasizing novel research contributions the emphasis will be on value to the community. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and included in the proceedings.

Important Dates

Papers due: 21 October 2016  ***4 days after EuroS&P notification deadline, no abstract submission deadline***
Author notification: 22 December 2016
Camera-ready versions: 20 January 2017
