 Dear Fellow Researchers,

We welcome submissions to the 17th Workshop on Programming Languages and
Analysis for Security (PLAS 2022). This year PLAS is uniquely designed to
make it as easy as possible for authors to simply focus on science: No
proceedings, no registration fees, no travel, no page limits or complex
submission formats - just share and discuss your great ideas with fellow
researchers in the areas of programming languages and security.

We look forward to receiving your submissions by November 14th, 2022.

Best regards,
Musard Balliu and Sunjay Cauligi


PLAS 2022 Call for Papers
17th Workshop on Programming Languages and Analysis for Security (PLAS 2022)

Virtual Event
December 12, 2022


Important Dates

Paper submission: November 14, 2022 (AoE)
Author notification: November 30, 2022
Workshop date: December 12, 2022

PLAS provides 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-learned
models and smart contracts. 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:

   - Language-based techniques for detecting and eliminating side-channel
   - Programming language techniques and verification applied to security
   in other domains (e.g. adversarial learning and smart contracts)
   - Software isolation techniques (e.g., SFI and sandboxing) and
   compiler-based hardening techniques (e.g, secure compilation).
   - Compiler-based security mechanisms (e.g. security type systems) or
   runtime-based security mechanisms (e.g. inline reference monitors)
   - Techniques for discovering and detecting security vulnerabilities,
   including program (binary) analysis and fuzzing
   - 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 IoT
   - Applications, case studies, and implementations of these techniques


We invite both short papers and long papers. All submissions should be
anonymous. For short papers, we especially encourage the submission of
position papers that are likely to generate lively discussion as well as
short papers covering ongoing and future work.

   - *Full papers:* There is no page limit on long papers. Papers in this
   category are expected to have relatively mature content. Papers that
   present promising preliminary and exploratory work, or recently published
   work are particularly welcome in this category. Long papers may receive
   longer talk slots at the workshop than short papers, depending on the
   number of accepted submissions.
   - *Short papers:* should be at most 2 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. Authors
   submitting papers in this category must prepend the phrase "Short Paper:"
   to the title of the submitted paper.

The workshop has no published workshop proceedings and there is no
restriction on paper format other than the page limits stated above.
Presenting a paper (either short or long) at the workshop does not preclude
submission to or publication in other venues that are before, concurrent,
or after the workshop. Papers presented at the workshop will be made
available to workshop participants only.
