                   CALL FOR PAPERS - GraMSec'14
  The First International Workshop on Graphical Models for Security
                   April 12, 2014, Grenoble, France
                     (Co-located with ETAPS 2014)

Graphical security models provide an intuitive but systematic
methodology to analyze security weaknesses of systems and to evaluate
potential protection measures. Such models have been subject of
academic research and they have also been widely accepted by the
industrial sector, as a means to support and facilitate threat
analysis and risk management processes. The objective of GraMSec is to
contribute to the development of well-founded graphical security
models, efficient algorithms for their analysis, as well as
methodologies for their practical usage.

The workshop seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government
presenting novel research on all theoretical and practical aspects of
graphical models for security. The topics of the workshop include, but
are not limited to:
- attack trees, attack graphs, Petri nets for security, Bayesian
  networks for security, UML-based models for security,
- security in system models, organizational models, business models,
  and methods for (semi-)automatic derivation of attack models from
- methods for quantitative analysis of graphical security models,
- analysis of digital, physical and social (socio-technical) security
  aspects using graphical models,
- risk assessment and risk management using graphical security models,
- software tools supporting security analysis using graphical models,
- case studies and experience reports on the use of graphical
  methodologies for analysis and evaluation of security of systems.

We solicit two types of submissions:
- Regular papers (up to 15 pages) describing original and unpublished
  work within the scope of the workshop.
- Short papers (up to 5 pages) describing work in progress or less
  mature results.
Case studies and tool papers are welcome as well. All submissions must
be prepared in LaTeX using the EPTCS macro package available at Each paper will undergo a thorough review
process. Submissions should be made using the GraMSec'14 easychair web

The final versions of accepted regular and short papers will be
published as a volume of Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical
Computer Science (EPTCS). Furthermore, authors of a selection of the
accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their
articles to a special issue of a high-quality journal, after the

Participants are also encouraged to submit position statements on
linking industrial needs to academic research questions. The
statements should not exceed one page and they will not undergo the
review process. Based on the statements, a special session will be
