PhD-Workshop on Software Security

Software security is an area which has for several decades been the focus of many research efforts. Yet, due to new challenges resulting from new development processes, such as SCRUM used in agile development1, new aspects of large scale system integration, such as interfaces between traditional mobile phone networks and VoIP, the need for research in this area is again seeing a significant increase, especially on a European scale.

This is why the workshop aims at bringing together doctoral students from across Europe to discuss recent developments under the guidance of experienced researchers in these fields. Once teams of students with common interests have been formed, they will be coached by supervisors towards developing a joint publication which they are expected to finish and submit to a conference or journal until the end of the year.

Location: Room TS133 at the Tietotalo of the Oulu University
