[PVS] CFP: SERE 2013 -- IEEE Conference on Software Security and Reliability

                   CALL FOR PAPERS


          The Seventh IEEE International Conference


              Software Security and Reliability

                  SERE (formerly SSIRI) 2013



                      Sponsored by

                IEEE Reliability Society &

  National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)


                 Washington, D.C., USA


                   18-20 June, 2013



SERE 2013 is the seventh annual conference sponsored by the IEEE

Reliability Society on Software Security and Reliability, with

SE representing SEcurity and RE for REliability. The conference is

a gathering for researchers and practitioners presenting their

on-going ideas, experiences, and outcomes of most recent research,

and exchanging best-of-breed practices for developing reliable,

secure, and trustworthy software in a more effective and efficient

way. Not only can the academic community gain an increased

awareness of the areas that are vital to the software industry,

but practitioners can also have a forum to express their needs.

The 2013 conference will be held at NIST (the National Institute

of Standards and Technology), an agency of the U.S. Department

of Commerce, in Gaithersburg, Maryland, which is less than one

hour from Washington D.C.



The conference has three major tracks: research papers, fast

abstracts and the student doctoral program. It also has invited

keynotes and talks, panels, and tutorials on emerging topics

related to the scope of the conference. Additional workshops

with more focused topics will also be held concurrently.
