Important dates

Notification of acceptance: 	April 30, 2013
Final papers: 			May 31, 2013

Invited speaker: Boris Koepf, IMDEA, Spain

Background, aim and scope

The aim of the workshop FCS'13 is to provide a forum for continued
activity in different areas of computer security, bringing computer
security researchers in closer contact with the LICS community and
giving LICS attendees an opportunity to talk to experts in computer
security, on the one hand, and contribute to bridging the gap between
logical methods and computer security foundations, on the other.

We are interested both in new results in theories of computer security
and also in more exploratory presentations that examine open questions
and raise fundamental concerns about existing theories, as well as in
new results on developing and applying automated reasoning techniques
and tools for the formal specification and analysis of security
protocols. We thus solicit submissions of papers both on mature work
and on work in progress.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to: 

Automated reasoning techniques
Composition issues
Formal specification
Foundations of verification
Information flow analysis
Language-based security
Logic-based design
Program transformation
Security models
Static analysis
Statistical methods
Trust management 	


Access control and resource usage control
Availability and denial of service
Covert channels
Integrity and privacy
Intrusion detection
Malicious code
Mobile code
Mutual distrust
Security policies
Security protocols


All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Authors of accepted papers must
guarantee that their paper will be presented at the workshop.
FCS'13 welcomes two kinds of submissions

  - short abstracts (1 page including references)
  - full papers (at most 15 pages including references) 

Short abstracts will receive as rigorous review as do full
papers. Short abstracts may receive shorter talk slots at the workshop
than do full papers, depending on the number of accepted
submissions. All papers should be written in the Springer LNCS style
available at the URL

The cover page should include title, names of authors, co-ordinates of
the corresponding author, an abstract, and a list of
keywords. Submissions that are clearly too long may be rejected
immediately. Additional material intended for the referees but not for
publication in the final version - for example details of proofs - may
be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the
page limit.

Authors are invited to submit their papers electronically, as portable
document format (pdf); please, do not send files formatted for word
processing packages (e.g., Microsoft Word or WordPerfect files). The
only mechanism for paper submissions is via the dedicated EasyChair
submission web page:

Please follow the instructions given there. 

Informal proceedings

The workshop has no published proceedings. Presenting a paper at the
workshop should not preclude submission to or publication in other
venues. Copies of papers presented at the workshop will be made
available in electronic format, but this will not constitute an
official proceedings.
