IEEE SERVICES 2015 Visionary Track: Security and Privacy Engineering Theme
IEEE 5th International Workshop on Security and Privacy Engineering (SPE2015)
Co-located with IEEE 11th World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2015)
One day between June 27 and July 2, 2015, New York, NY, USA
Web page:



Built upon the success of spectrum of conferences within the IEEE World Congress on Services and the Security and Privacy Engineering workshop, IEEE Security and Privacy Engineering (SPE 2015) theme is a unique place to exchange ideas of engineering secure systems in the context of service computing, cloud computing, and big data analytics. The emphasis on engineering in security and privacy of services differentiates the theme 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 presenting real solutions and visions on building secure service systems that can be applied to government procurement, digital medical records, cloud environments, social networking for business purposes, multimedia application, mobile commerce, education, and the like. Potential contributions could cover, but are not limited to, methodologies, protocols, tools, or verification and validation techniques. We also welcome review papers that analyze critically the status of current Security and Privacy (S&P) in a specific area. Papers from practitioners who encounter security and privacy problems and seek understanding are also welcome.

Topics of interests of SPE 2015 include, but are not limited to:

- S&P Engineering of Service-Based Applications
- Security Engineering of Service Compositions
- Practical Approaches to Security Engineering of Services
- Privacy-Aware Service Engineering
- Industrial and Real Use Cases in S&P Engineering of (Cloud) Services
- S&P Engineering of Cloud Services
- Auditing and Assessment
- Assurance and Certification
- Cloud Transparency
- Security Management and Governance
- Privacy Enforcement in Clouds and Services
- Cybersecurity Issues of Clouds and Services
- Validation and Verification of S&P in Clouds and Services
- Applied Cryptography for S&P in Clouds and Services
- S&P Testing in Clouds and Services
- Security and Privacy Modeling
- Socio-Economics and Compliance
- Education and Awareness
- Big Data S&P Engineering
- Mobile Cloud S&P Engineering
- S&P Engineering into futuristic blue skies

- Decision Notification (Electronic): April 15th, 2015
- Camera-Ready Copy Due Date & Pre-registration Due: April 26th, 2015

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit full papers (about 8 pages) or short papers (about 4 pages) as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines (download templates at or The submitted papers can only be in the format of PDF or WORD. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers, respectively. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference associated with the theme and present the paper. All papers must be submitted via the confhub submission system for the SPE theme (submission system link will be announced on the theme website at

First time users need to register with the system first (see instructions at for details). All the accepted papers by the themes will be included in the Proceedings of the IEEE 11th World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2015) which will be published by IEEE Computer Society.
