3rd IEEE Workshop on Security Aspects of Process and Services Engineering
                   SAPSE 2011
Munich, Germany, July 18-22, 2011
in conjunction with COMPSAC, the IEEE Signature Conference on
Computers, Software, and Applications.

PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE **** March 1st, 2011 ****
The workshop aims to foster cooperation among software practitioners and
researchers in order to exchange the latest industrial experience and
research ideas on services and processes engineering focussing on security
related issues.
The area of processes and services engineering is an ever evolving
research area offering new challenges to researchers and
practitioners. Research in this area is devoted to the software
engineering of service-oriented applications and the goal is to
provide effective solutions to the development, deployment and
management of the resulting software systems. Security plays a
fundamental role, since the resulting applications are expected to
function correctly and resist also to malicious attacks in different
and changing threat scenarios. Service integrators, software
developers, and service providers need to create novel methodologies,
tools, and techniques to take into account the security issues related
to the development and use of dependable services and service oriented
applications. Even if recently many standards providing basic
properties and protocols for the secure composition of business
processes and services have appeared, many security problems need to
be addressed. The engineering of complex processes and service
oriented software still lacks powerful, effective methods and tools to
build better, more robust and more secure systems.

The SAPSE workshop is intended to provide a forum for presentation and
discussion of a wide range of topics related to the security aspects
of software processes and services engineering. Following the
discussions held in previous editons of SAPSE workshop, 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 service oriented systems
     * Secure business process composition
     * Risk management in business processes
     * Trust and policy management in clouds
     * Service dependability, survivability, and reliability
     * Design and development of secure service oriented systems
     * Security specification of service oriented systems
     * Certification of service oriented systems
     * Verification, validation and testing of security properties of
       service oriented systems
March 1, 2011 : Workshop paper submission
April 8, 2011   : Workshop paper author notification
May 2, 2011    : Camera-ready & author registration

Papers must be submitted electronically via the Electronic Submission
Page.  The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for
the IEEE conference proceedings. All papers will be carefully reviewed
by at least two reviewers.  apers can be submitted as regular papers
(six pages) and the acceptance will depend upon reviewer feedback. All
accepted papers will be published in the electronic conference
proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and
EI Index (Elsevier's Eng. Inf. Index), and automatically included in
the IEEE Digital Library. At least one of the authors of each accepted
paper must register as a full participant of COMPSAC for the paper to
be included in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented
in person by an author.
