First International Workshop on Secure Software Engineering (SecSE 2007)

In conjunction with ARES 2007

Call for Papers

In our modern society, software is an integral part of everyday life, and we
expect and depend upon software systems to perform correctly. Software security
is about ensuring that systems continue to function correctly also under
malicious attack. As most systems now are web-enabled, the number of attackers
with access to the system increases dramatically and so the threat scenario
changes. The traditional approach to secure a system includes putting up
defence mechanisms like IDS and firewalls, but this is no longer sufficient. We need to be able to build better, more robust and more secure
systems. Even more importantly, however, we should strive to achieve these
qualities in all software systems, not just the ones that need special

This workshop will focus on techniques, experiences and lessons learned for
engineering secure software.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
- Secure architecture and design
- Security in agile software development
- Security requirements
- Risk management in software projects
- Secure implementation
- Secure deployment
- Testing for security
- Static analysis for security
- Lessons learned
- Security and usability
- Teaching secure software development
- Experience reports on successfully attuning developers to secure software engineering

Important dates:
- Submission Deadline: December, 17th 2006
- Author Notification: January, 14th 2007
- Author Registration: January, 21st 2007
- Proceedings Version: January, 21st 2007
- Conference/workshop: April 10-13th

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit research and application papers in IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style 
(two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 fonts, and number each page). You can confirm 
the IEEE
Computer Society Proceedings Author Guidelines at the following web page:
URL: http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/ieeecs/publications/author/index.html

We solicit the submission of full papers (8 pages) representing original,
previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated
based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of
exposition. Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered
to be a duplicate submission if it is submitted to other
conferences/workshops/journals or if it has been already accepted to be
published in other conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate submissions thus
will be automatically rejected without reviews.

Contact author must provide the following information: paper title,
authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address
of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords and
register at our ARES website: http://www.ares-conference.eu/conf/
(or http://tinyurl.com/pg4f3)
Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one
of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference.
Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the
final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. Note
that SecSE 2007 does not require anonymized submissions.

All accepted papers will be published as ISBN proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society.
