3rd IEEE Workshop on Security Aspects of Process and Services Engineering
                  SAPSE 2011

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


PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE **** March 15th, 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
 of a wide range of topics related to the security aspects of software
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
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.
