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!
A few weeks ago, the German edition of Technology Review interviewed me on the state of software security. The article is available now.
Please consider submitting your research papers to ESSOS’16 which will take place in April at Royal Holloway London. We have been able to put together an excellent program committee. Submission deadline is October 2nd.
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!
