                    ACM SIGPLAN Third Workshop on
     Programming Languages and Analysis for Security (PLAS 2008)

                    Tucson, Arizona, June 8, 2008

         Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN and co-located with PLDI'08


                 Submission Deadline: March 24, 2008

Call for Papers

PLAS aims to provide a forum for exploring and evaluating ideas on the
use of programming language and program analysis techniques to improve
the security of software systems. Strongly encouraged are proposals of
new, speculative ideas; evaluations of new or known techniques in
practical settings; and discussions of emerging threats and important

The scope of PLAS includes, but is not limited to:

  * Language-based techniques for security
  * Verification of security properties in software
  * Automated introduction and/or verification of security enforcement
  * Program analysis techniques for discovering security vulnerabilities
  * Compiler-based security mechanisms, such as host-based intrusion
    detection and in-line reference monitors
  * Specifying and enforcing security policies for information flow
    and access control
  * Model-driven approaches to security
  * Applications, examples, and implementations of these techniques

Important Dates and Submission Guidelines

  * March 24, 2008: Submission due date
  * April 21, 2008: Author notification
  * May 12, 2008: Revised papers due
  * June 8, 2008: PLAS 2008 workshop

We invite papers of two kinds: (1) Technical papers about relatively
mature work, for "long" presentations during the workshop, and (2)
papers for "short" presentations about more preliminary work, position
statements, or work that is more exploratory in nature.  Submitted
papers should describe work unpublished in refereed venues, not be
submitted for publication elsewhere, and have a page limit of 12 pages
for long papers and 6 pages for short papers.
