Call For Papers

8th International Workshop on Evolving Security and Privacy Engineering (ESPRE 2021)
Co-located with RE'21

20th-24th September 2021 Online




The Evolving Security and Privacy Requirements Engineering (ESPRE) Workshop is a multi-disciplinary, one-day workshop. It brings together practitioners and researchers interested in security and privacy requirements.

ESPRE probes the interfaces between Requirements Engineering and Security and Privacy, and aims to evolve security and privacy requirements engineering to meet the needs of stakeholders; these range from business analysts and security engineers, to technology entrepreneurs and privacy advocates.

ESPRE will be run as a one-day workshop (online). The workshop format will consist of an invited talk, paper presentations and discussions, and a facilitated roadmap building session.

ESPRE is suited towards attendees with interests not only in Requirements Engineering, but also in security, privacy, user experience, software engineering, system of systems engineering, and other related areas.

Topics include but are not limited to:
- Adaptation of security and privacy requirements
- Elicitation and analysis techniques
- Evolution of security and privacy requirements
- Legal compliance in security and privacy RE
- Leveraging Domain knowledge
- Modelling trust and risk
- Ontologies for security and privacy RE
- Scalability of security RE approaches
- Security and privacy RE and [Sec]DevOps
- Security and privacy RE for design innovation
- Security and privacy RE education
- Security and privacy RE processes
- Stakeholder and Attacker perspectives
- Studies applying security and privacy RE
- Validation and verification

Full paper submissions: 24 June 2021
Camera-ready copies: 12th August 2021
