HotSpot 2014
2nd Workshop on Hot Issues in Security Principles and Trust

Affiliated with ETAPS 2014 ( )
12th April 2014 in Grenoble, France.

Important Dates

Deadline for submissions: 3rd January 2014
Notification: 31st January 2014
Final version for informal proceedings (optional): 14th February 2014


This workshop is intended to be a less formal counterpart to the
Principles of Security and Trust (POST) conference at ETAPS, and with
an emphasis on "hot topics", both of security and of its theoretical
foundations and analysis. Like POST, the themes are:

- theory of computer security;
- formal specification, analysis and design of security systems;
- automated reasoning for security analysis.

Submissions about new and emerging topics (for example, those that
have not appeared prominently in conferences and workshops until now)
are particularly encouraged. Submissions of preliminary, tentative
work are also encouraged. There is no page limit, but the length of
your submission should be appropriate to its content. There will be no
formal proceedings. Inclusion in informal proceedings is optional.
