                        *** CALL FOR PAPERS ***


In connection with 

	       The Second Workshop on Automated Reasoning
		     for Security Protocol Analysis

which took place as a satellite event of ICALP'05, we are guest-editing
a Special Issue of Theoretical Computer Science devoted to original
papers on formal security protocol specification, analysis and

Contributions are welcomed on the following topics and related ones:

- Automated analysis and verification of security protocols.
- Languages, logics, and calculi for the design and specification of
  security protocols.
- Verification methods: accuracy, efficiency.
- Decidability and complexity of cryptographic verification problems.
- Synthesis and composition of security protocols.
- Integration of formal security specification, refinement and
  validation techniques in development methods and tools.


Authors should submit their papers electronically, in portable
document format (pdf) or postscript (ps), by sending an email with
subject "TCS submission" to the address
                        arspa -at- avispa-project.org
with the file of the paper as an attachment, by November 13, 2005.
The following information should be included in the body of the email,
