Symposium on Requirements Engineering for Information Security (SREIS 2005)


Paris, France

August 29th, 2005

In conjunction with RE 05 - 13th IEEE Int. Requirements Engineering Conference

In cooperation with SIGSOFT (pending)




The symposium is intended to provide researchers and practitioners from various disciplines with a highly interactive forum to discuss security and privacy-related requirements. The symposium can be seen as the continuation of the SREIS (http://www.sreis.org) series. Theoretical, experimental, and experience papers are all welcome.

Targeted Attendees


We would encourage attendance from those in the fields of requirements engineering, software engineering, information systems, information and network security and trusted systems as well as those interested in approaches to analyzing, specifying, and testing requirements to increase the level of security provided to users interacting with pervasive commerce, research and government systems. The symposium will be open to all RE conference attendees.



Papers related, but not limited, to the following topics are invited:

- solutions to known RE problems as applied to security and privacy

- RE for confidentiality, integrity, and availability

- industrial problem statements

- generalizations from individual industrial experiences

- RE for trusted Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) systems

- empirical studies of industrial RE practice for security and privacy

- capture and expression of informal and ad hoc requirements

- managing conflicting requirements of operational effectiveness and security

- methods for the specification and analysis of security requirements

- methods for ensuring compliance between requirements and policies

Submission Requirements


Full papers should present original work, using at most 8 proceedings pages (<=5000 words). Papers must not have been previously published nor have been submitted to or be in consideration for any journal, book, or conference.

Position papers may not exceed four pages. The aim of a position paper is to contribute a specific position to a research discussion. Position papers are judged on novelty, sensibility of the viewpoint, key insights, and relevant research results. Radical and unconventional ideas are welcomed.

All paper submissions will be refereed by the Program Committee. The symposium proceedings will be published as post-proceedings. Authors are requested to present in-person their accepted paper at the symposium.

Full and position papers submission: June 17th
Notification to the authors: July 15th
Camera ready due: July 25th
