                                               SAPSE 2014

The 6th IEEE International Workshop on Security Aspects of Process and
Services Engineering 




Held in conjunction with COMPSAC, the IEEE Signature Conference on
Computers, Software, & Applications.

COMPSAC 2014 will be held in Vństerňs, Sweden - July 21-25, 2014


Goal of the workshop


The area of processes and services engineering is a very attractive field
for innovative research, particularly in the last years, when the
outsourcing of business processes on the cloud has become a popular paradigm
for both small and big companies.  Using platforms provided by third parties
as a remote runtime environment/infrastructure is posing new important
challenges, especially considering the security aspects, since the resulting
software systems are expected to function correctly and resist also to
malicious attacks under different changing threat scenarios. New techniques
and methodologies are needed to be able to build better, more robust and
more trusted systems, where security is taken into account and integrated in
the whole  design process since 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


•             Trust, security, and privacy in cloud and/or service based

•             Secure business process composition

•             Security of business processes over the cloud

•             Risk management in business processes

•             Trust and policy management in clouds

•             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 



Paper Submission



Papers must be submitted electronically via the submission page. The format
of submitted papers should follow guidelines for  IEEE Computer Society
Press Proceedings. All papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three
reviewers. Papers 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.
