IEEE 2014 Fourth International Workshop on Security and Privacy Engineering(SPE2014)

Oneday between June 27 and July 2, 2014, at Hilton Anchorage, Alaska, USA 


Built upon the success of spectrum ofconferences within the IEEE World Congress onServices, the Security and PrivacyEngineering (SPE 2014) workshop is a unique place to exchange ideas ofengineering secure systems in the context of service computing, cloudcomputing, and big data analytics. The emphasis on engineering in security andprivacy of services differentiates the workshop from other traditionalprestigious security and privacy workshops, symposiums, and conferences. Thepracticality and value realization are examined by practitioners from leadingindustries as well as scientists from academia.

In line with the engineering spirit, wesolicit original papers on building secure service systems that can be appliedto government procurement, digital medical records, cloud environments, socialnetworking for business purposes, multimedia application, mobile commerce,education, and the like. Potential contributions could cover, but are notlimited to, methodologies, protocols, tools, or verification and validationtechniques. We also welcome review papers that analyzecritically the status of current Security and Privacy (S&P) in a specificarea. Papers from practitioners who encounter security and privacy problems andseek understanding are also welcome.

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