1st International Workshop on

Secure, Accountable and Privacy-Preserving

Data-Driven Service-Oriented Computing

November 2023 Rome, Italy

Welcome tho the 1st International Workshop on Secure, Accountable and Privacy-Preserving Data-Driven Service-Oriented Computing (SAPD). 

Service Oriented Computing (SoC) has become the cornerstone of modern applications, shaping how we create and consume these software services. Consequently, we  entrust these services with the most private and confidential data, making security, accountability and privacy-preserving service design paramount. 


This workshop aims to foster in-depth discussion on cutting-edge approaches in addressing security, privacy and accountability concerns in data-driven systems. Furthermore, we seek topics related to security governance, where security policies, compliance and requirements will be considered in SoC. Additionally, new approaches for securing SoC are welcome and encouraged, e.g., the application of approaches such as AI and blockchain.

Similarly, for privacy, we also welcome case studies and research papers on topics such as privacy-by-design, and accountability in data sharing systems as valuable additions. Moreover, we consider software-driven trust and accountability as foundational building blocks for secure and privacy-preserving interactions in SoC. Thus, we welcome contributions highlighting the integration of trustless accountable systems in data-driven architectures.

Lastly, we welcome topics considering efficiencies in data-driven while maintaining security, privacy and accountability in  service-oriented architectures, e.g., carbon-aware data spaces, serverless data-driven and data-sharing systems 

Topics of Interest

We invite researchers and practitioners to submit original contributions related to, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Adaptive Approaches in Security Governance for Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing
  • Privacy and Data Protection in Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing
  • Trust and Accountability in Data Sharing Systems
  • Trust Management in Cloud-based service environments
  • Application of Machine Learning (ML) in securing, optimizing, protecting Service-Oriented Computing
  • Energy and Carbon-Aware Secure Service-Oriented Computing 

Workshop supported by the EU Project TEADAL (Trustworthy, Energy-Aware federated DAta Lakes along the computing continuum)
