Welcome to FEAST 2020
The 2020 Workshop on Forming an Ecosystem Around Software Transformation (FEAST 2020) will be held in conjunction with the ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS) on November 13th, 2020. The workshop is geared toward discussion and understanding of several critical topics surrounding software executable transformation for improving the security and efficiency of all software used in security-critical applications. The scope of discussion for this workshop will include topics that may be necessary to fully exploit the power and impact of late-stage software customization efforts as described in the Call for Papers.

SUNY Empire Innovation Professor
R. Sekar is a SUNY Empire Innovation Professor and the Associate Chair of the Computer Science Department at Stony Brook University, where he directs the Secure Systems Lab. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT, Madras (India), and his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Stony Brook. Sekar’s research interests span software and systems security. He is best known for his work on automated vulnerability mitigation, including randomization and taint-based techniques; information-flow based malware containment; intrusion detection and attack campaign investigation; and binary analysis and instrumentation. Sekar's research in these areas has been funded by several grants from AFOSR, DARPA, NSF and ONR, as well as the industry. He has supervised over 125 students, including four postdoctoral and international visiting researchers, 20+ Ph.D.s, and 80+ Master’s. Sekar has received SUNY Chancellor’s award for Excellence in Research, SUNY Research Foundation’s Research and Scholarship award, Best paper awards at USENIX Security and Annual Computer Security Applications Conferences and honorable mention for best paper at SACMAT.
Vice President of Research, GrammaTech
Alexey Loginov is the Vice President of Research at GrammaTech, a leading cyber-security research company. At GrammaTech, he oversees both technical and business aspects of the Research Division. Dr. Loginov's research work at GrammaTech has focused on binary analysis technologies, including both formal and heuristic techniques. A key contribution of his early work at GrammaTech was the addition of Binary-Analysis capabilities to the CodeSonar vulnerability-detection tool. In recent years, work in his group began to explore statistical, machine-learning, and evolutionary-computation techniques in an effort to address challenges of scalability and precision in program analysis and repair. Dr. Loginov received a Ph.D. in Computer Sciences from the University of Wisconsin, where his thesis exposed a new connection between machine learning and program analysis. Before joining GrammaTech, he worked at Hewlett-Packard and the IBM T.J. Watson Research Center.
