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 & 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.
We will run a ‘Lightning talks’ session of 2-minute talks during the workshop. Such talks might share early results, on-going work, annoyances, practical lessons learned, or even plugs for upcoming events. To book a slot, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, affiliation, talk title, and brief abstract. Proposals will be accepted on a first come, first served basis until all available slots are filled. We will, however, try to free up space elsewhere on the day if we get more demand than we can satisfy.
The scope for talk topics is open, but the timings are not. Please keep your talk within the time limit. This will make your talk more focused, and keep the audience excited. If your proposal is accepted, you will be contacted with more details about timings and logistics on the day.
Dr. Yijun Yu is a Senior Lecturer in Computing at The Open University, UK. He is interested in developing automated, efficient and scalable software techniques and tools to better support human activities in software engineering. He has a vision to improve aviation security through cloud computing and blockchains by live streaming blackboxes, which was featured in interviews with BBC after the missing MH370 flight, and subsequently received a Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS awards (2017). His research on Requirements-driven Self-Adaptation receives a 10 Year Most Influential Paper award (CASCON’16), 5 Best Paper awards and 3 Distinguished Paper awards at International Conferences (including RE’11). This talk is based on recent joint work with colleagues at The Open University, UK, inspired by his international collaborators from over 10 countries. His current research is funded by grants on Secure Adaptive and Usable Software Engineering (EPSRC Platform, 2018-2022), and Adaptive Security and Privacy (ERC Adv. Grant, 2012-2018). You can find out more about his work here and about his research team here.
Lionel C. Briand is professor in software verification and validation at the SnT centre for Security, Reliability, and Trust, University of Luxembourg, where he is also the vice-director of the centre. He is currently running multiple collaborative research projects with companies in the automotive, satellite, financial, and legal domains. Lionel has held various engineering, academic, and leading research positions in five other countries before that.
Lionel was elevated to the grade of IEEE Fellow in 2010 for his work on the testing of object-oriented systems. He was granted the IEEE Computer Society Harlan Mills award and the IEEE Reliability Society engineer-of-the-year award for his work on model-based verification and testing, respectively in 2012 and 2013. He received an ERC Advanced grant in 2016 — on the topic of modelling and testing cyber-physical systems — which is the most prestigious individual research grant in the European Union. His research interests include: software testing and verification, model-driven software development, search-based software engineering, and empirical software engineering.
