SecDev is a venue for presenting ideas, research, and experience about how to develop secure systems. It focuses on theory, techniques, and tools to “build security in” to existing and new computing systems, and does not focus on simply discovering the absence of security.
The goal of SecDev is to encourage and disseminate ideas for secure system development among academia, industry, and government. It aims to bridge the gap between constructive security research and practice and to enable real-world impact of security research in the long run. Developers have valuable experiences and ideas that can inform academic research, and researchers have concepts, studies, and even code and tools that could benefit developers. Great SecDev contributions could come from attendees of industrial conferences like AppSec and RSA; from attendees of academic conferences like IEEE S&P, IEEE CSF, USENIX Security, CCS, NDSS, PLDI, ICSE, FSE, ISSTA, SOUPS, HOST, and others; and from newcomers.
IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE SecDev 2020 Organizing Committee have been monitoring the developing COVID-19 situation.
The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our top priority. After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we are announcing that the IEEE SecDev 2020, scheduled to be held in-person in Atlanta, GA will now be converted into an all-digital conference experience. The dates of the conference will remain the same. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
