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.
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.
The workshop will begin with an authority in the field of security or privacy. The Keynote talk title for ESPRE 2021 will be announced in due course.
Previous keynote talks have been delivered by Angela Sasse (2014), Robert Biddle (2015), Lin Liu (2016), Chris Williams (2017), Yijun Yu (2018), Daehun Nyang (2019), and Shamal Faily (2020).

Throughout the day, the workshop organisers will note potential research challenges that form the basis of a roadmap for evolving security and privacy requirements engineering. Following the final session, we will close the workshop with a wrap-up session, in which these challenges and a potential roadmap for addressing them will be proposed.
Time permitting, 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.

Wrap-up: A roadmap for evolving security and privacy requirements engineering
Although the ESPRE workshop has been co-located with RE since 2014, it builds on the success of earlier workshops in security requirements engineering and secure software engineering.
For example, the Security and Privacy Requirements Engineering (SPREE) Workshop in 2011, the International Workshop for Software Engineering for Secure Systems (SESS) series, and the Requirements for High Assurance Systems (RHAS) workshop series.
