Track: Safety, Security and Privacy
This Thematic Track is a well-established track within QUATIC, where researchers, developers, testers, and users from industry get together to present and discuss the most recent innovations, experiences and open challenges related to safety and security & privacy aspects of complex software systems.
Indeed, these aspects are increasingly important as more and more software is embedded into our homes, cars, trains and also, many relevant vital systems for critical infrastructures are moving towards the cloud. Developers have to consider safety, security & privacy requirements in the whole system and applications lifecycle, from design to operation and new methodologies and techniques are needed.
The authors are invited to submit research results as well as practical experiment or project reports. Industrial papers about applications or case studies are also welcomed in different domains (e.g., telemedicine, critical infrastructures, mobile networks, embedded applications, etc.).
The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Software safety and risk management
Software safety regulations and standards
Agile development in safety-critical software systems
Methods and tools in safety-critical software systems
Quality metrics for safety and security
Security models and security policies
Security testing and monitoring
Cloud, IoT and Big Data security
Attacks tolerance and resilience
Security and risk assesment
Distributed systems security
SLAs for safety, security and privacy
