ESSoS 2018 International Symposium on Engineering Secure Software and Systems, Campus Paris-Saclay, France, June 26-27, 2018. (Submission Due 9 March 2018) [posted here 12/11/17]
Software-based systems permeate the very fabric of our society from enterprise IT systems and mobile devices to smart home and city environments. Consequently, computer security is becoming an increasingly inter-disciplinary subject requiring attention to the various aspects of securing our software-based infrastructure. One must pay careful attention to ensure compatibility with existing software and the wider socio-technical context (e.g., users and organisations) which it inhabits. This, in turn, requires an approach that integrates insights from computer security research with rigorous software engineering methods to ensure the security and resilience of our digital infrastructure. ESSoS therefore welcomes contributions that are at the border of system security and software engineering. The goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the state of the art and practice in secure software engineering. Being one of the few conference-level events dedicated to this topic, it explicitly aims to bridge the software engineering and software security communities. The symposium features two days of technical program including two keynote presentations. In addition to academic papers, the symposium encourages submission of high-quality, informative industrial experience papers about successes and failures in secure software engineering and the lessons learned. Furthermore, the symposium also accepts short idea papers that crisply describe a promising direction, approach, or insight.

WIIoTS 2018 Workshop on Industrial Internet of Things Security, Bilbao, Spain, June 4-7, 2018. [posted here 12/25/17]
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is an emerging paradigm in today's (control) industry, comprising Internet-enabled cyber-physical devices with the ability to couple to the new interconnection technologies such as cloud/fog computing. Under this perspective, the new industrial cyber-physical "things" can be accessible and available from remote locations, the information of which can be processed and stored in distributed locations, favouring the cooperation, the performance in field, and the achievement of operational tasks working at optimal times. However, the incorporation of the IIoT in the new scenarios of the fourth industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, entails having to consider the new security and privacy issues that can threaten the wellbeing of the new IIoT ecosystem and its coexistence with the existing industrial technologies, with a high risk of impact on the end-users. Therefore, this workshop will create a collaboration platform for experts from academia, governments and industry to address the new IIoT security and privacy challenges. Papers related to security and privacy of embedded systems working in industrial and control environments, such as SCADA, smart grid, smart cities, manufacturing systems, water systems, and in critical infrastructures in general, are all welcome at WIIoTS 2018.

IWSPA 2018 4th International Workshop on Security and Privacy Analytics, Co-located with ACM CODASPY 2018, Tempe, AZ, USA, March 21, 2018. [posted here 10/23/17]
Increasingly, sophisticated techniques from machine learning, data mining, statistics and natural language processing are being applied to challenges in security and privacy fields. However, experts from these areas have no medium where they can meet and exchange ideas so that strong collaborations can emerge, and cross-fertilization of these areas can occur. Moreover, current courses and curricula in security do not sufficiently emphasize background in these areas and students in security and privacy are not emerging with deep knowledge of these topics. Hence, we propose a workshop that will address the research and development efforts in which analytical techniques from machine learning, data mining, natural language processing and statistics are applied to solve security and privacy challenges (ìsecurity analyticsî). Submissions of papers related to methodology, design, techniques and new directions for security and privacy that make significant use of machine learning, data mining, statistics or natural language processing are welcome. Furthermore, submissions on educational topics and systems in the field of security analytics are also highly encouraged.
