                HASE 2008 CALL FOR PAPERS
                      HASE 2008
11th High Assurance Systems Engineering Symposium
                      Nanjing, China
                      December 3-5, 2008
Call for Papers
The IEEE International Symposium on High Assurance Systems Engineering is a forum for discussion of systems and software engineering issues to achieve high assurance systems. The focus is on integrated approaches for assuring reliability, availability, integrity, privacy, confidentiality, safety, and real-time of complex systems and the methods for assessing the assurance levels of the systems to a high degree of confidence. Technical and experience papers on algorithms, policies, middleware, tools, and models for high assurance systems development, verification and validation, and assessment are welcome.
Authors are invited to submit high quality technical papers describing original and unpublished work in all aspects of high assurance systems engineering.
Topics of interests for the symposium include, but are not limited to:
*Design and development of highly reliable, survivable, secure, safe, and time-assured systems
*Integrated system reliability, availability, security, safety, and timing analysis and evaluation  methods
*Policies for reliability, safety, security, integrity, privacy, and confidentiality of high  assurance systems
*Formal specification, specification validation, testing, and model checking for high assurance  systems
*High assurance software architecture and design
*Transformation-based and evolutionary-based system development
*Reconfigurable system design for evolving high assurance requirements
*Dynamic monitoring and adaptation for run-time assurance
*High assurance web services
*High assurance information/knowledge systems and data grids
*High assurance embedded systems, ubiquitous systems and sensor networks
*Extending web service specifications for reliability, safety, security, privacy, trust, and other QoS properties
*Assurance techniques for service-oriented systems

Contributions for the Fast Abstract track of HASE 2008 are solicited.
The fast abstracts aim to serve as a rapid and flexible mechanism to
o Discuss industrial experiences and achievements
o Report on research work in progress
o Introduce new ideas to the community
o State positions on controversial issues or open problems
Works related to high assurance systems engineering fitting the
categories described above are welcome. Authors from industry,
government, and academia are encouraged to submit Fast Abstracts.
Fast Abstracts will not be formally refereed. Instead, the HASE'08 Fast
Abstracts Committee will screen the submissions. The criteria for
acceptance will be i) relevance and interest to the community and ii)
timeliness of the material.
Submission Guidelines:
Research Papers: Original, previously unpublished papers are
solicited. Maximum 10 pages, standard IEEE double-column format.
Fast Abstracts: Fast Abstracts are limited to 2 pages, in standard IEEE
double-column format. Authors of accepted Fast Abstracts will present
a short talk approximately 10-15 min) at HASE 2008 Fast Abstract

Important Dates:
* June     10,  2008: Paper submission deadline
* July     10,  2008: Fast Abstract submission deadline
* August   1,   2008: Acceptance/rejection notification
* August   29,  2008: Camera-ready version due
