Dear all,

Please consider submitting a research/position/practice paper to the 1st International Workshop on Assurance Cases for Software-intensive Systems (ASSURE) to be held in conjunction with ICSE 2013, in San Francisco.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to Feb. 14, 2013.

                           CALL FOR PAPERS
                            ASSURE 2013
   The 1st International Workshop on Assurance Cases
              for Software-intensive Systems

          San Francisco, California, May 19, 2013
                in conjunction with ICSE 2013



Software plays a key role in high-risk systems, e.g., safetyand  security-critical systems. Several certification standards/ guidelines now recommend and/or mandate the development of assurance cases for software-intensive systems, e.g., defense (UK MoD DS0056), aviation (CAP 670, FAA Interim Guidance 08-01), automotive (ISO 26262), and healthcare (FDA Guidance on Infusion Pumps 510(k)). As such, there is a need to understand and evaluate (a) the application of assurance cases to software, and (b) the relationship between assurance case development and assessment, and software engineering concepts, processes and techniques.

The goals of the ASSURE 2013 workshop are to explore techniques for the creation and assessment of assurance cases for softwareintensive  systems; leverage, adapt and apply techniques, concepts, and tools from software engineering in the assurance case lifecycle; identify the dimensions of effective practice in the development and evaluation of assurance cases, and identify critical challenges and define a roadmap for future developments.

We solicit high-quality research contributions, practice and position papers on the application of assurance case principles and techniques for software assurance, and on the treatment of assurance cases as artifacts to which the full range of software engineering techniques can be applied. Papers should attempt to address the workshop goals in general.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Papers should conform to the formatting guidelines (http://2013.icse-conferences.org/content/submission-guidelines) and be no more than 6 pages long. Papers submitted for consideration should not have been published elsewhere and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere.

Instructions for submission are available on ASSURE 2013 website (http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/assure2013).

Accepted papers will be published in the ICSE 2013 electronic proceedings. Authors of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in an edited book.
