  • Mobile platforms system software and applications analysis;
  • Decompilation technologies;
  • Practice in the application of reverse engineering tools.

2. Program execution in controlled environment

  • Software emulators: prospective lines of development;
  • Software-hardware virtualization tools, debugging, tracing;
  • Executable code online analysis technologies.

3. Vulnerability search in executable code

  • Static and dynamic methods of binary code bugs search;
  • Focused fuzzing, binary code symbolic execution;
  • Effective SMT-solvers;
  • Security violations formalization on binary code level;

4. Network traffic analysis

  • Content deep analysis, methods and technical tools;
  • Reverse engineering of protocols;
  • Infrastructure of software tools for network traffic analysis.

5. Compiler optimization and code generation

  • Optimizations for static and dynamic languages;
  • Optimizations for improvement of performance, code size and power consumption;
  • Optimizations based on utilization of program profile as well as machine learning techniques;
  • Programs internal representation and layers of abstraction used in the compiler.

6. Program static and dynamic analysis

Registration will be available soon.


We solicit original and unpublished articles of current research, results or work in progress. We invite both researchers and practitioners to submit early research work or general discussions. All accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of Ivannikov ISP RAS Open Conference, that is indexed in Web of Science and Scopus.

The papers should be 3 to 7 pages long, formatted using IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. Peer review is double-blind. Please remove any references to authors, such as names, affiliations or emails, from submitted manuscripts, as well as direct references to previous work. In the case of successful review and acceptance you will be requested to submit camera-redy text with necessary author details.

Articles submission due to September 19, 2018 September 5, 2018.

Submission is open at EasyChair.

Organizing and Program Committees of Ivannikov ISP RAS Open Conference look forward for cooperation with authors to ensure a process that is both fair in practice and perceived to be fair by everyone.

Submissions that violate these guidelines will be rejected.
