IEEE 2014 Fourth International Workshop on Security and Privacy Engineering

One day between June 27 and July 2, 2014, at Hilton Anchorage, Alaska, USA
Co-located with IEEE SERVICES 2014 (http://www.servicescongress.org/2014/) 
Workshop Web page: http://sesar.dti.unimi.it/SPE2014/ 




Built upon the success of spectrum of conferences within the IEEE
World Congress on Services, the Security and Privacy Engineering (SPE
2014) workshop is a unique place to exchange ideas of engineering
secure systems in the context of service computing, cloud computing,
and big data analytics. The emphasis on engineering in security and
privacy of services differentiates the workshop from other traditional
prestigious security and privacy workshops, symposiums, and
conferences. The practicality and value realization are examined by
practitioners from leading industries as well as scientists from

In line with the engineering spirit, we solicit original papers on
building secure service systems that can be applied to government
procurement, digital medical records, cloud environments, social
networking for business purposes, multimedia application, mobile
commerce, education, and the like. Potential contributions could
cover, but are not limited to, methodologies, protocols, tools, or
verification and validation techniques.  We also welcome review papers
that analyze critically the status of current Security and Privacy
(S&P) in a specific area. Papers from practitioners who encounter
security and privacy problems and seek understanding are also welcome.

Topics of interests of SPE 2014 include, but are not limited to:

- S&P Engineering of Service-Based Applications
- Security Engineering of Service Compositions
- Practical Approaches to Security Engineering of Services
- Privacy-Aware Service Engineering
- Industrial and Real Use Cases in S&P Engineering of (Cloud) Services
- S&P Engineering of Cloud Services
- Auditing and Assessment
- Assurance and Certification
- Security Management and Governance
- Privacy Enforcement in Clouds and Services
- Cybersecurity Issues of Clouds and Services
- Validation and Verification of S&P in Clouds and Services
- Applied Cryptography for S&P in Clouds and Services
- S&P Testing in Clouds and Services
- Security and Privacy Modeling
- Socio-Economics and Compliance
- Education and Awareness
- Big Data S&P Engineering
