Call For Papers

The 2021 Workshop on Human-Centric Software Engineering & Cyber Security (HCSE&CS-2021) will be co-hosted with the 36th IEEE/ACM International Conference on Automated Software Engineering and will be taking a virtual format, from 15 to 19 November 2021.

Call for Papers:

Humans are a key part of software development, including customers, designers, coders, testers, and end-users. While most current software engineering research and practices are function, data, or process-oriented, human-centric software engineering focuses on the human factors in engineering software systems. After the successful inaugural event at ASE2020, the 2nd International Workshop on Human-Centric Software Engineering and Cyber Security will continue its aim to bring together researchers and practitioners to continue the discussion on fundamentally new ways to systematically capture and use human-centric software requirements during software development and verify that systems meet these requirements. At present, there are major issues with misaligned software applications related to human factors, such as accessibility, usability, emotions, personality, age, gender, and culture. This workshop serves as the ideal venue to share research ideas and outcomes on requirements, enhanced theory, models, tools, and capability for next-generation human-centric software engineering aiming to achieve significant benefits of greatly improved software quality and user experience, developer productivity, and cost savings.

In addition, this workshop has a special focus on cyber security. The increased attention on a human-centric design in software engineering is the focus of contemporary research in cyber security. Particularly, the focus is shifting towards embedding human behaviour and cognitive perception to ensure a fully human-centric cyber security solution that not only protects humans from the harmful after-effects of cyber security events but does so in unison with human thinking and behavioural patterns. In this workshop, we solicit recent research works in the field of human-centric cyber security engineering.

The topics of this workshop focus on all software engineering tasks and processes during the human-centric software development lifecycle, including cyber security issues, but not limited to:

Human-centric modelling tools
Human-centric requirements engineering
Human-centric methodologies and practices
Accessible and usable cyber security
Incorporating human factors into requirements and design e.g., emotions, bias, personality, and culture
Context-awareness in human-centric software (and systems) engineering
Proactive help for modellers/designers/engineers e.g. design critics
Impact of human factors on development processes and software teams
Human factors considerations for engineers and developers
Performance appraisal and software engineering tasks
Usable security/privacy evaluation of existing and/or proposed solutions
Mental models that contribute to, or inform security and privacy design and deployment
Design foundations of usable security and privacy including usable security and privacy patterns
Modelling of security behaviours
In-the-wild observation of security and privacy behaviour studies
Tools and models for capturing and interpreting user behaviours
Software applications that demonstrate the practice of human-centric software engineering
Conceptual/Position papers about the impact of the pandemic on personal privacy and security during home working
Submission Process:

Authors are invited to submit original research papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. The articles must not exceed 6 pages. Authors are also invited to submit short papers covering new ideas, visions (of the future), reflections (on the past), and tool demonstrations that must not exceed 4 pages. All submissions must be in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the ACM Proceedings Template. All accepted contributions will be published in the conference electronic proceedings. At least one author needs to present their paper during the workshop.
