Special Issue "Software Security and Assurance"
A special issue of Computers (ISSN 2073-431X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 November 2018)
Prof. Hyungjong Kim
Software security is gaining increasingly more attention from the computer security community.
Although many attempts have been made to improve software security over the years, traditional software security research has relied on tools and techniques focusing on testing (e.g., static analysis). We believe that the scope of software security and assurance is much wider than these limited research areas.
International Conference on Software Security and Assurance (ICSSA) provides a chance for academic and industry professionals to discuss recent progress in the area of software security and assurance and explore various facets of software security and assurance, which have not been thoroughly studied yet.
Selected papers presented at the ICSSA 2018 are invited to submit their extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Computers. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in Computers and collected together on the Special Issue website.
Conference papers should be cited and noted on the first page of the paper; authors are asked to disclose that it is a conference paper in their cover letter and include a statement on what has been changed compared to the original conference paper; Please note that the submitted extended paper should contain at least 50% new content (e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases...) and not exceed 30% copy/paste from conference paper.
Please prepare and format your paper according to the Instructions for Authors. Use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word template file of the journal (both are available from the Instructions for Authors page). Manuscripts should be submitted online via our susy.mdpi.com editorial system.
