                     ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on 
          Programming Languages and Analysis for Security

              San Diego, California, June 14, 2007

                   Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN
                with support from IBM Research
           Co-located with PLDI'07 as part of FCRC.


Call For Participation

PLAS aims to provide a forum for exploring and evaluating ideas on the

We have a strong program consisting of 13 technical papers and one
informal presentation, on a variety of topics, including:

  * Language-based techniques for security, including
    new accounts of declassification, new proof techniques, new
    application domains, and practical implementations
  * Program analysis techniques for discovering security
  * New host-based intrusion techniques, based on static analysis and
    application frameworks

The conference hotel registration deadline is May 9; early registration
deadline is May 11.

Generous support from IBM Research has made it possible for us to
offer travel grants for students attending PLAS.  See Application form
on the PLAS web page for further instructions.
