SAPSE 2015: 7th IEEE International Workshop on Security Aspects of Process
and Services Engineering, held in conjunction with The 39th Annual
International Computer, Software & Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2015)
July 1-5, 2015
Tunghai University, Taichung, Taiwan


+++++ Deadline for Paper Submissions : March 18, 2015 ++++++++++

Call for Papers
SAPSE aims to foster cooperation among software practitioners and
researchers in order to exchange the latest industrial experience and
research ideas on the security of services and processes engineering.

The area of processes and services engineering is a very attractive field
for innovative research, particularly in the last few years, during which
the outsourcing of business processes to the cloud has become a popular
paradigm for both small and big companies. The outsourcing of data,
services, processes and infrastructures on remote platforms provided by
third parties is posing important new challenges, especially those related
to security, as the resulting software systems are expected to function
correctly and also resist malicious attacks under different changing
threat scenarios. New techniques and methodologies are needed to enable
the development of more robust and trusted systems, where security is
taken into account and integrated in the whole design process from the
very first stages.

Researchers and practitioners all over the world, from both academia and
industry, working in the areas of process engineering, service-oriented
computing, and security are invited to discuss state of the art solutions,
novel issues, recent developments, applications, methodologies,
techniques, experience reports, and tools for the development and use of
secure service oriented systems. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following:

    Trust, security, and privacy in cloud and/or service based systems
    Secure business process composition
    Security of business processes over the cloud
    Risk management in business processes
    Trust and policy management in the cloud
    Service dependability, survivability, and reliability
    Design and development of secure services
    Security specification of service oriented systems
    Certification of cloud-based systems
    Verification, validation and testing of security properties

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers as
well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other
publications and conferences are not permitted.

The length of a camera ready paper will be limited to 6 pages (IEEE
Proceedings style) with up to 2 additional pages (with charges for each
additional page) printed on 10-12 point fonts.

Authors must follow IEEE CS Press Proceedings Author Guidelines
(http://www.computer.org/web/cs-cps/authors) to prepare papers. At least
one of the authors of each accepted paper is required to pay full
registration fee and present the paper at the workshop in person.

Important Dates
March 18, 2015: Paper submissions due
April 10, 2015: Paper notifications
April 24, 2015: Camera ready and registration due
