2th IEEE International Workshop on Security Aspects of Process and Services Engineering
THEME AND SCOPE OF THE WORKSHOP
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 in SAPSE 2009 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:
