The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Trustworthy Software Systems
held in conjunction with IEEE TrustCom-15

August 20-22, 2015, Helsinki, Finland

Software has transformed the daily lives of people for the better. The increasing pervasion and importance of software in information society, however, has exposed its fragility and vulnerabilities. Although the research in software trustworthiness has made tremendous progress in recent years, national infrastructure, corporations and individuals still suffer from software failures. This workshop aims at providing a forum for continuously discussing the latest academic and industrial research results related to trustworthy software systems.

Scope and Interests

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Requirements acquisition of software trustworthiness
  • Software specification and verification
  • Correctness by design, construction and compilation
  • Software analysis and testing
  • Integrating methods and their theories
  • Measurement and evaluation of trustworthy software
  • Dependable and secure computing environment construction
  • Cryptographic and privacy aspects of trustworthy software
  • Software runtime monitor, control and evolution
  • Case studies and tools
  • Mobile application trust
  • Malware detection
  • User perception of software trustworthiness
  • Trust in human-software interaction and user interface trust
  • Software quality and reputation evaluation
  • Software as a Service and its applications
  • Software trust management
  • Application or industrial experience of trustworthy software

Submission Instructions

Papers submitted to the workshop should be written in English conforming to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Format (8.5" x 11", Two-Column). The paper should be submitted through the workshop submission system at the workshop website. The length of the papers should not exceed 6 pages + 2 pages for over length charges.

Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS CPS and submitted to IEEE Xplore and CSDL. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS after the conference. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be recommended to special issues of reputable SCI/EI-indexed journals.

Submitting a paper to the workshop means that, if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop and present the paper.
