Third International Workshop on Secure Software Engineering
In conjunction with ARES 2009
Call for Papers
In our modern society, software is an integral part of everyday life, and we expect and depend upon software systems to perform correctly. Software security is about ensuring that systems continue to function correctly also under malicious attack. As most systems now are web-enabled, the number of attackers with access to the system increases dramatically and thus the threat scenario changes. The traditional approach to secure a system includes putting up defence mechanisms like IDS and firewalls, but such measures are no longer sufficient by themselves. We need to be able to build better, more robust and more secure systems. Even more importantly, however, we should strive to achieve these qualities in all software systems, not just the ones that need special protection.
This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for engineering secure and dependable software.
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
- Submission Deadline: October 30th 2008
Authors are invited to submit research and application papers in IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 pt fonts, and number each page). Please consult the IEEE CS Author Guidelines at the following web page:
We solicit the submission of academic workshop papers (6 pages) representing original, previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition.
Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a duplicate submission if it is submitted to other conferences/workshops/journals or if it has been already accepted to be published in other conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate submissions thus will be automatically rejected without reviews.
Contact author must provide the following information: paper title, authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords. Paper registration and submission is done through the ARES & CISIS 2009 Paper Management System at the following address:
Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the ARES conference and present the paper in the workshop. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. Note that SecSE 2009 does not require anonymized submissions.
All accepted papers will be published as ISBN proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society, and will be available online through IEEE Xplore (EI indexing).
