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.



These include, but do not exclude:

  • Adaptation of security & privacy requirements
  • Elicitation and analysis techniques
  • Evolution of security & privacy requirements
  • Legal compliance in security & privacy RE
  • Leveraging Domain knowledge
  • Modelling trust and risk
  • Ontologies for security & privacy RE
  • Scalability of security RE approaches
  • Security & privacy RE and [Sec]DevOps
  • Security & privacy RE for design innovation
  • Security & privacy RE education
  • Security & privacy RE processes
  • Stakeholder & Attacker perspectives
  • Studies applying security & privacy RE
  • Validation & verification
  • Next


    We invite research and position papers that address any of the workshop topics.

    Please use the IEEE trans template for submissions.

    Further Instructions are also on the RE 2017 site

    Papers have no more than 6 pages of content. An additional page is allowed for references only. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format to EasyChair.

    Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings, and made available via IEEE Xplore.

    Keynote Speaker

    Chris Williams (Dstl)

    Dr Williams graduated from the University of Oxford with a First in Engineering Science, and subsequently gained his PhD from Bristol University on the topic of chaotic waveforms for communications. Alongside periods in industry (Research Manager for Fujitsu) and academia (Research Fellow at Bristol University) much of his career has been in Government defence research (Dstl and predecessors). Areas of expertise include novel waveforms, communications signal processing, dynamic spectrum access, risk based decision making, agile systems and requirements engineering.
