HoTSoS 2019. 6th Annual Hot Topics in the Science of Security (HoTSoS)
Nashville, Tennessee.  
April 1-3, 2019. 
Submissions due 7 January 2019.

Submissions are solicited for the 6th Annual Hot Topics in the Science
of Security (HoTSoS) Symposium, which will be held April 1-3, 2019 at
the Wyatt Center on the Peabody Campus of Vanderbilt University in
Nashville, Tennessee. Scope, Goals & Vision This symposium solicits
original and solid scientific work in security and privacy which
examines the scientific foundations of trustworthy systems for
security and privacy, and it can be generalized across multiple
domains with quantifiable evidence for advancing security
objectives. The symposium program will include invited talks, refereed
papers, panels, tutorials, and posters. The poster session will
include a poster competition on developing security metrics. The
papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by
ACM Press.

We invite submissions on any topic related to science of security that
aligns with the conference scope and goals listed above. HoTSoS 2019
will highlight the following themes:

  * Resilient Architectures for designing and analyzing system
      architectures that deliver required service in the face of
      compromised components,

  * Scalability and Composability for automating the construction of
      provably secure systems from components with known security

  * Policy Governed Secure Collaboration for handling data across
      different domains of authority while ensuring security and

  * Security-Metrics-Driven Development and Evaluation for guiding
      choice-making in security engineering and response by assuring
      or predicting the security properties of cyber systems,

  * Understanding and Accounting for Human Behavior, including
      modeling users, operators, and adversaries, to for enabling the
      design, modeling, and analysis of systems with specified
      security properties,

  * Privacy Policy Enforcement for enabling the use (i.e., collect,
      store, and share) of data in accordance with requirements, and

  * Foundations for the security of cyber-physical systems security
      and resilience, including applications to the Internet of
