About Us

Kristian Beckers is a security requirements engineering researcher at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). He investigates how security requirements engineering methods can be used to support the development and documentation of security standards. Kristian is the author of a Springer book on the subject. Kristian has also been a PC member and external reviewer to the following conferences and workshops CD-ARES, CODASPY, ESSoS, IWPE, SAFECOMP, SECTEST, as well as to the following journals International Journal of Information Security, IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering, Computer & Security. Kristian co-organised the previous ESPRE workshops, as well.

Shamal Faily is a Senior Lecturer in Systems Security Engineering at Bournemouth University; his research explores how the design of interactive secure systems can be better supported with design techniques and software tools, particularly those from Requirements Engineering. Shamal organised the inaugural workshop on Designing Interactive Secure Systems at British HCI 2012, and ran a special interest group on this topic at CHI 2013. Shamal has also been a PC member and external reviewer for several security and usability confer- ences, including ARES, Trust, CHI, EICS, and British HCI. Shamal co-organised the previous ESPRE workshops, and is the general co-chair of British HCI 2016.

Seok-Won Lee is the Dean of the Graduate School of Software and Full Professor of Software Convergence Technology/Information and Computer Engineering at Ajou University since 2012. Prior to joining to Ajou, he has been a faculty member at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and the University of Texas in San Antonio since 2003. He also worked at IBM T.J. Watson Research Center and SAIC as a research scientist. He has published more than 130 scientific papers in software engineering with specific expertise in ontological requirements engineering and domain modelling, knowledge engineering with specific expertise in knowledge acquisition and machine learning, and security requirements engineering. Seok-Won has been a PC member of several security and software engineering conferences (including RE), and has organised the SESS workshop series at ICSE for many years.

Nancy Mead is a Fellow and Principal Researcher at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), a faculty member in the Master of Software Engineering program at Carnegie Mellon University, a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and a Distinguished Member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). She is currently involved in the study of security requirements engineering and the development of software assurance curricula. Nancy has organised several security engineering events, including the SPREE Workshop in 2011, and the RHAS workshops.
