                             PLAS 2006

                          ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
                 Programming Languages and Analysis for Security


                             co-located with

                          ACM SIGPLAN PLDI 2006
      Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation
                      Ottawa, Canada, June 10, 2006

The goal of PLAS 2006 is to provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners to exchange and understand ideas and to seed new
collaboration on the use of programming language and program analysis
techniques that improve the security of software systems.

The scope of PLAS  includes, but is not limited to:
  -- Language-based techniques for security
  -- Program analysis and verification (including type systems and
     model checking) for security properties
  -- Compiler-based and program rewriting security enforcement
  -- Security policies for information flow and access control
  -- High-level specification languages for security properties
  -- Model-driven approaches to security
  -- Applications, examples, and implementations of these
     security techniques


The deadline for submissions of technical papers is March 03, 2006.
Papers must be formatted according the ACM proceedings format and
should be no longer than 10 pages in this format. This 10 page limit
includes everything (i.e., it is the total length of the paper).

Email the submissions to stevez AT Submissions should
be in PDF (preferably) or Postscript that is interpretable by
Ghostscript and printable on US Letter and A4 sized paper. Templates
for SIGPLAN-approved LaTeX format can be found at  We recommend
using this format, which improves greatly on the ACM LaTeX format.

Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in refereed venues,
and not submitted for publication elsewhere (including journals and
formal proceedings of conferences and workshops). See the SIGPLAN
republication policy for more details
