PC Members

Authors are invited to submit papers that contribute to the aims of the workshop. Submissions may reflect, in the context of cybersecurity, on questions such as:

  • What are the benefits and achievements of patterns in particular domains?

  • What are the barriers to pattern uptake and how might these be overcome?

  • How might the insights gained through using patterns in one domain generalise to others?

  • What are the similarities and differences between prescriptive design patterns and descriptive patterns such as attack patterns?

  • What is the relationship between design patterns and pattern matching?

  • How do patterns help to underpin a ‘science of security’?

  • How do patterns contribute to knowledge reuse and engineering practice?

  • What are the key issues facing practitioners that can be aided by patterns?

  • Where are good cases studies showing the benefits and potential of the pattern abstraction?
