Call For Papers


Sixth International Workshop on Information Systems Security Engineering - WISSE’16

In conjunction with the
28th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE'16)
Ljubljana, Slovenia, 13 - 17 June 2016

Important Dates

Regular Research and Experience Paper Submission: extented to February 26, 2016 (firm deadline)
Authors Notification: March 16, 2016
Camera Ready Submission: March 23, 2016
Workshop Date: June 13, 2016

The best papers will have the chance to publish extended and revised versions in a special issue of ComSIS - Computer Science and Information Systems ( in the ISI Journal Citation Reports.


Information systems security problems are currently a widespread and growing concern that covers most of the areas of society, such as business, domestic, financial, government, healthcare, and so on. The scientific community has realized the importance of aligning information systems engineering and security engineering in order to develop more secure information systems. Nevertheless, there is lack of an appropriate event that will promote information systems security within the context of information systems engineering. The proposed workshop fulfils this gap.

The workshop following the main conference theme aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present, discuss and debate on one hand the latest research work on methods, models, practices and tools for secure information systems engineering, and on the other hand relevant industrial applications, recurring challenges, problems and industrial led solutions at the area of secure information systems engineering taking under consideration the socio-technical aspects of the modern Information Systems.

* Security of externalized IS


Types of contributions

We invite two types of original and scientific papers:

* Regular Research Papers describe original solutions (theoretical, methodological or conceptual) in the field of secure information systems engineering. A regular research paper should describe the context of the work, the problem tackled, the relevant state of the art, the position or solution suggested and the benefits of the contribution.

* Experience papers present application of work to case studies and industrial practice. Such papers should provide a detail description of the application setting, describe lessons learned, and discuss best practice.

Submission Conditions

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in any of the topics of the workshop. The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Only papers in English will be accepted.

The length of papers (regular research papers and experience papers) should not exceed 12 pages (including all text, figures, references and appendices.). Three to five keywords characterizing the paper should be indicated at the end of the abstract.

Manuscripts must comply with the Springer LNCS formatting rules. Information about the Springer LNCS format can be found at

Submissions not conforming to the LNCS format, exceeding 12 pages, or being obviously out of the scope of the workshop will be rejected without review.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format, through EasyChair at the following page


For each accepted submission, at least one author is expected to register for the workshop and attend the workshop in order to present the paper. Registration is through the CAiSE’16 web site.


The workshop will combine paper presentations and a keynote. Moreover, accepted papers apart from presentation time, will be assigned with one or two discussants with responsibility to initiate the discussion on the paper. We are confident that such structure will support a workshop environment that will be based on discussion, debate and will therefore provide an important contribution to the relevant research community.
