IEEE Services 2015 Visionary Track: Dependable and Secure Services (DSS 2015) theme


Within the IEEE 11th World Congress on Services (SERVICES 2015), one day between June 27 and July 2, 2015, New York, USA


DSS 2015 will focus on dependability and security of software and services. This is a challenging theme, especially when considering that information systems are more and more based on complex, heterogeneous, dynamic software and services, which are characterized by demanding quality attributes. Interoperability in presence of dependability and security guarantees, as well as new techniques and tools to assess the impact of accidental and malicious threats, are among the crucial aspects to be addressed.

List of topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Architecture, design, implementation, and management of dependable and secure software and services

- Dependable Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)

- Implementation and deployment of dependable cloud-based services

- Dependable and secure big data services

- Specification and design methodologies, e.g., model-based, component-based, refinement-based approaches

- Metrics for quantifying services dependability and security

- Dependability and security benchmarking

- Verification and validation for dependability and security evaluation of services

- Formal verification, testing, analytical and experimental evaluation of services

- Off-line versus on-line dependability and security services assessment

- Case studies illustrating challenges and solutions in designing dependable and secure software and services

- Design and use of supporting tools for creating dependable and secure services
