- CFP:

The overall objective of this workshop is to present significant 
information dealing with the issue of reusing security
and safety mechanisms in software systems. First of all, the workshop 
will focus on the definition of security and safety
by design processes which maintain separation of concern. This involves 
approaches for designing the storage of security
and safety mechanisms separately, as well as approaches for integrating 
them. Secondly, the workshop will focus on supporting
specific processes of various application sectors.
Special emphasis will be devoted to promote discussion and interaction 
between researchers and practitioners focused on the
particularly challenging task of efficiently integrating security and 
safety solutions within the restricted available design
space for software systems. Furthermore, one important focus is on the 
potential benefits of the combination of model-driven
engineering and formal methods with pattern-based representation of 
security and dependability solutions. Of particular interest
is the exchange of concepts, prototypes, research ideas, and other 
results which contribute to the academic area and also benefit
business and industrial communities. Some of the topics that we seek to 
include in the workshop are related to the development
of modeling language, methods and tools to support the inclusion of 
security, safety and architecture issues into the software
engineering process. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Modeling the interplay of architecture, security and safety models
* Formalization of security and safety properties
* Verification, testing and validation of security, safety and 
architecture properties by design
* Design process of security and safety patterns and tactics
* Model-based repository of security and safety patterns and tactics
* Security and safety requirements engineering for system and software 
* Inheritance of security and safety properties upon integration
* Architecture decisions related to safety and security
* Tradeoffs between quality attributes and safety/security
* Evaluation of architecture,  security and safety and their subsequent 
* Adaptable architectures for achieving security, safety and managing 
their trade-offs
* Architectural support for self-protecting, self-healing, 
self-repairing, self-stabilizing systems
* Architecture-level diversity for security and safety
* (Architecture-level) compliance and standards for security and safety
* Integration process of security, safety and architecture
* Customization of application sector specific processes
* Support tools for assisting modeling, deployment and configuration of 
security and safety by design
* Case studies, empirical results, experience reports, benchmarks and 
artifacts, etc…

- Submission:

We are inviting the submission of papers with high quality research 
contributions, work in progress,
experimental and ongoing projects results. The following types of 
submission are accepted:
* Long papers (7 pages): reporting substantial, completed, and 
previously unpublished research.
* Short papers (4 pages): describing challenge problems, tool 
demonstrations, work in progress or industrial experiences.

* Format: All submitted papers must be written in English and conform to 
the ACM double column format (10pt, single-space,
double-column and include an abstract of up to 150 words...). The format 
of the submission should follow ACM Formatting Guidelines
  (http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). The 
submission should be done in PDF-format via our submission
system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=issa20160) before Mai 
18, 2016.
