Call for papers Doctoral Symposium
The ESSoS Doctoral Symposium 2013 will be held in Paris (Rocquencourt), France on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 in conjunction with the ESSoS
Following the aim of the ESSoS-DS past edition, the scope of the current event will be focused on providing PhD students an opportunity to discuss their research in Engineering Secure Software and Systems
(ESSoS) in an international forum, and with a panel of well-known experts in the field.
Students will have the occasion to discuss, in a welcoming and informal atmosphere, the goals already achieved or planned, the research challenges they are interested in, the projects they are working on, the facilities they are developing, the problems they want to solve in their doctoral work. During the Doctoral Symposium students will receive useful feedbacks from senior researchers, industrial partners and experts. It will be as well a good opportunity for meeting and sharing experiences with other PhD students addressing similar topics or at a similar stage in their doctoral work. This way the students will obtain guidance both on the academic content of their current work and regarding the potential future research trajectories.
PhD students carrying out research in Engineering Secure Software and Systems are invited to submit a position paper to the PhD Symposium.
Papers will be peer-reviewed by the Symposium's program committee members. The criteria used for accepting a paper include potential quality of the research, contribution of the work to the ESSoS field, originality of the work, and overall quality of the position paper.
PhD proposals fitting to the ESSoS conference topics are especially encouraged. This includes a diversity of topics such as but not limited to:
scalable techniques for threat modeling and analysis of vulnerabilities
specification and management of security requirements and policies
security architecture and design for software and systems
model checking for security
specification formalisms for security artifacts
verification techniques for security properties
systematic support for security best practices
security assurance cases
programming paradigms, models and DSL's for security
program rewriting techniques
processes for the development of secure software and systems
security-oriented software reconfiguration and evolution
trade-off between security and other non-functional requirements
support for assurance, certification and accreditation
Accepted position papers will be presented during the ESSOS 2013 Doctoral Symposium and will be published at the NESSoS website. We intend to publish the proceedings of the Doctoral Symposium as a CEUR online publication (ISSN 1613-0073).
Position papers have to fulfill the following requirements.
