        Final Call for Papers: Submission Deadline March 3, 2006

			   Call for Papers

			      PLAS 2006

		       ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
	   Programming Languages and Analysis for Security

			   co-located with

      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


We invite papers of two kinds: (1) Technical papers for "long"
presentations during the workshop, and (2) papers for "short"
presentations (10 minutes).  Papers submitted for the long format
should contain relatively mature content; short format papers can
present more preliminary work, position statements, or work that is
more exploratory in nature.

The deadline for submissions of technical papers (for both the short
and long presentations) is March 03, 2006.  Papers must be formatted
according the ACM proceedings format: "long" submissions should not
exceed 10 pages in this format; "short" submissions should not exceed
4 pages. These page limits include everything (i.e., they are the
total length of the paper).  Papers submitted for the "long" category
may be accepted as short presentations at the program committee's

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.

Publication options:

Authors of accepted papers may choose whether they would like their
work published in a planned special issue of SIGPLAN Notices.  Those
papers that are not published in SIGPLAN Notices will only be
considered part of the informal workshop proceedings and are therefor
suitable for future publication in journal or other conference venues.

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

Important dates:

		 Submission deadline           March 03, 2006
		 Notification of acceptance    April 03, 2006
		 Final papers due              April 24, 2006
		 Workshop                      June 10, 2006
