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 the 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 Secure Development Conference (SecDev 2021) – Now Taking Place Virtually
The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the ongoing COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of the IEEE SecDev 2021 conference into an all-digital conference experience – IEEE SecDev 2021 will now be an online event. Therefore, IEEE SecDev 2021 will no longer take place in Atlanta, GA, and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain the same – October 18-20, 2021. Proceedings will not be canceled, and publications will continue as planned. For questions, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
