======================================================================= Call for Presentations on Secure Compilation (PriSC Workshop @ POPL'18) ======================================================================= Secure compilation is an emerging field that puts together advances in programming languages, security, verification, systems, compilers, and hardware architectures in order to devise secure compiler chains that eliminate many of today's low-level vulnerabilities. Secure compilation aims to protect high-level language abstractions in compiled code, even against adversarial low-level contexts, and to allow sound reasoning about security in the source language. The emerging secure compilation community aims to achieve this by: identifying and formalizing properties that secure compilers must possess; devising efficient enforcement mechanisms; and developing effective verification and proof techniques. ====================================================================== 2nd Workshop on Principles of Secure Compilation (PriSC 2018) ====================================================================== The Workshop on Principles of Secure Compilation (PriSC) is a new informal 1-day workshop without any proceedings. The goal is to identify interesting research directions and open challenges and to bring together researchers interested in secure compilation. The 2nd PriSC edition will be held on Saturday, 13 January 2018, in Los Angeles, together with the ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages (POPL). More information at http://popl18.sigplan.org/track/prisc-2018 ====================================================================== Important Dates ====================================================================== Presentation proposal submission deadline: 18 October 2017, AoE Presentation proposal notification: 8 November 2017 PriSC Workshop takes place: 13 January 2018 ====================================================================== Scope of the Workshop ====================================================================== Anyone interested in presenting at the workshop should submit an extended abstract (up to 2 pages, details below). This can cover past, ongoing, or future work. Any topic that could be of interest to the emerging secure compilation community is in scope. Talks that provide a useful outside view or challenge the community are also welcome. Topics of interest include but are **not** limited to: - attacker models for secure compiler chains - secure compilation properties: full abstraction, memory safety, control-flow integrity, preserving non-interference or (hyper-)properties against adversarial contexts, secure multi-language interoperability - enforcement mechanisms: static checking, program verification, reference monitoring, program rewriting, software fault isolation, system-level protection, secure hardware, crypto, randomization - experimental evaluation and applications of secure compilation - proof methods: (bi)simulation, logical relations, game semantics, multi-language semantics, embedded interpreters - formal verification of secure compilation chain (protection mechanisms, compilers, linkers, loaders), machine-checked proofs, translation validation, property-based testing ====================================================================== Guidelines for Submitting Extended Abstracts ====================================================================== Extended abstracts should be submitted in PDF format and not exceed 2 pages. They should be formatted in two-column layout, 10pt font, and be printable on A4 and US Letter sized paper. We recommend using the new `acmart` LaTeX style in `sigplan` mode: http://www.sigplan.org/sites/default/files/acmart/current/acmart-sigplanproc.zip Submissions are not anonymous and should provide sufficient detail to be assessed by the program committee. Presentation at the workshop does not preclude publication elsewhere. Please submit your extended abstracts at https://prisc18.hotcrp.com/ ====================================================================== Short Talks Session ====================================================================== We will also run a short talks session, where participants get five minutes to present intriguing ideas, advertise ongoing work, etc. You can expect a call for short talks closer to the event. ====================================================================== Program Committee ====================================================================== Program Chair Catalin Hritcu Inria Paris Members Amal Ahmed Inria Paris and Northeastern University Lars Birkedal Aarhus University Dominique Devriese KU Leuven Cédric Fournet Microsoft Research Deepak Garg MPI-SWS Xavier Leroy Inria Paris David Naumann Stevens Institute of Technology Marco Patrignani MPI-SWS Frank Piessens KU Leuven Tamara Rezk Inria Sophia Antipolis Nikhil Swamy Microsoft Research ====================================================================== Organizing Committee ====================================================================== Amal Ahmed Inria Paris and Northeastern University Dominique Devriese KU Leuven Deepak Garg MPI-SWS Catalin Hritcu Inria Paris Marco Patrignani MPI-SWS Tamara Rezk Inria Sophia Antipolis ====================================================================== Contact and More Information ===================================================================== More information about PriSC 2018 can be found on the website: http://popl18.sigplan.org/track/prisc-2018 For questions please contact Catalin Hritcu (Program Chair).
