ACM Ninth Workshop on Programming Languages and Analysis for Security (PLAS 2014) - CFP

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 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 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.
  • Short papers should be at most 6 pages long including bibliography and appendices. Preliminary and exploratory work are welcome in this category. Short papers presentations will be 10 minutes each. Authors submitting papers in this category must prepend the phrase Short Paper: to the title of the submitted paper.

Submissions should be PDF documents typeset in the ACM proceedings format using 10pt fonts. SIGPLAN-approved templates can be found here. 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 short papers must describe work not published in other refereed venues. (See the SIGPLAN republication policy at for more details.) Accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, which will be distributed to the workshop participants and be available in the ACM Digital Library.
