Community services for 2016

I am happy to announce that for 2016 I have confirmed membership in the program committees in all of the major software engineering conferences, i.e., ICSE, FSE and ASE. ISSTA disallows invitations for the third time in a row, which is why I will contribute as co-chair of the artifact evaluation. Also I will be a member of the CODASPY PC. For ASPLOS, the reviewing period clashes with the one of ICSE, which is why I decided to only contribute to the ERC. Let there be many good submissions!

Two new papers to appear at ISC

On our website we have now available two new papers accepted at ISC. The first paper originated out of our collaboration with SAP. It reports on a qualitative empirical study determining Factors Impacting the Effort Required to Fix Security Vulnerabilities. Thanks to our collaborators for the great work! The second work is on Dynamically Provisioning Isolation in Hierarchical Architectures, a novel, lightweight and effective means to counter side channels and covert channels in the cloud. Enjoy!
