IEEE 2012 Services Workshop on Security and Privacy Engineering (SPE2012)

One day between June 24-29 2012, Hyatt Regency Waikiki Resort and Spa, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
within IEEE SERVICES 2012


Built upon the success of spectrum of conferences within the IEEE World Congress on Services (, Security and Privacy Engineering (SPE 2012) workshop is a unique place to exchange ideas of engineering secure systems in the context of service computing or cloud computing. The emphasis on engineering in security and privacy 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 academia.

In line with the engineering spirit, we solicit original papers on building secure systems that can be applied to government procurement, digital medical records, cloud environments, social networking for business purposes, multimedia application, mobile commerce, education, etc. Topics can be methodologies, tools or testing. Key words could include validation, verification, testing, assessment and self-assessment, governance, risk and compliance, IT auditing, open source projects, virtualization, business process, security economics, dependable, assurance, security education and awareness.

We also welcome review papers that analyze critically the status of current Security and Privacy in a specific area. Papers from practitioners who encounter security and privacy problems and seek understanding are also welcome.
