PLAS is calling for paper submissions. The abstract submission deadline is
on July 1 and paper on July 5, 2019 (AoE).
The workshop is on November 15th in London UK, colocated with CCS. See
further details below.

ACM SIGSAC 14th Workshop on Programming Languages and Analysis for Security
(PLAS 2019)
Friday November 15, 2019 - London, UK (Co-located with ACM CCS 2019)

PLAS is a forum for exploring and evaluating the use of programming
language and program analysis techniques for promoting security in the
complete range of software systems, from compilers to machine learnt
models. The workshop encourages proposals of new, speculative ideas,
evaluations of new or known techniques in practical settings, and
discussions of emerging threats and problems. We also host position papers
that are radical, forward-looking, and lead to lively and insightful
discussions influential to the future research at the intersection of
programming languages and security.

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

- *NEW THIS YEAR*: Programming language techniques and verification applied
  to security in other domains (e.g. adversarial learning)
- Compiler-based security mechanisms (e.g. security type systems) or
  runtime-based security mechanisms (e.g. inline reference monitors)
- Program analysis techniques for discovering security vulnerabilities
- Automated introduction and/or verification of security enforcement
- Language-based verification of security properties in software, including
  verification of cryptographic protocols
- Specifying and enforcing security policies for information flow and
  access control
- Model-driven approaches to security
- Security concerns for Web programming languages
- Language design for security in new domains such as cloud computing and
- Applications, case studies, and implementations of these techniques

* Sponsors
Sponsorship opportunities are available. See the call for sponsors for more

* Call for Papers
We invite both full papers and short papers. For short papers we especially
encourage the submission of position papers that are likely to generate
lively discussion.

Full papers should be at most 11 pages long, plus as many pages as needed
for references and appendices. Papers in this category are expected to have
relatively mature content. Full paper presentations will be 25 minutes
each. Short papers should be at most 5 pages long, plus as many pages as
needed for references. Papers that present radical, open-ended and
forward-looking ideas are particularly welcome in this category, as are
papers presenting preliminary and exploratory work. Authors submitting
papers in this category must prepend the phrase "Short Paper:" to the title
of the submitted paper. Short paper presentations will be 15 minutes each.
Submissions should be PDF documents typeset in the ACM proceedings format
using 10pt fonts. A SIGPLAN-approved template can be found at SIGPLAN
Author Information. We recommend using this template.

Both full and short papers must describe work not published in other
refereed venues (see the SIGPLAN republication policy for more details).
Accepted papers will appear in workshop proceedings, which will be
distributed to the workshop participants and be available in the ACM
Digital Library.

Submissions can be made via Easychair:
