2nd SysSec Workshop
24 July 2013, Bochum, Germany

About the workshop

As part of its dissemination activities, the SysSec Network of Excellence organized a workshop focused on system security research, to consolidate the Systems Security research community in Europe. The specific format of this workshop has been developed to:

  1. showcase and spread the excellence in systems security research in Europe, by presenting a selection of papers published by European researchers and Europe-funded research projects in top conferences in the area
  2. involve students and young researchers by allowing them to showcase their own best results and expose them to top researchers in the field
  3. create a generational exchange between experienced and starting researchers, focusing around a tutorial on how to get your research published in top venues (a session discussing the "best previously rejected papers" of the last years)


The workshop was co-located with the UbiCrypt Summer School 2013 on Reverse Engineering, which took place from July 22nd to July 26th. The school offered graduate students and young researchers the opportunity to learn more about binary analysis and malware reverse engineering.
