This workshop is intended to be a less formal counterpart to the Principles of Security and Trust (POST) conference at ETAPS with an emphasis on “hot topics”, both of security and of its theoretical foundations and analysis.

Submissions about new and emerging topics (for example, those that have not appeared prominently in conferences and workshops until now) are particularly encouraged. Submissions of preliminary, tentative work are also encouraged.

This workshop is organized by IFIP WG 1.7: Theoretical Foundations of Security Analysis and Design.
