  • (forthcoming) Secure Software Engineering for Cyber Physical Systems, 7-8 April 2017, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
  • Cyber Security and Human Behaviour - 4-5 October 2015, Doha, Qatar. The workshop explored the interdisciplinary research opportunities that combined cyber security with economics & business, law & regulation, and pschology & the social sciences. Professor Mark Levine (University of Exeter, UK) gave a keynote address.
  • Engineering Adaptive Software Systems (EASy 2015) - 6-10 September 2015, Shonan Village, Japan. Bashar Nuseibeh co-chaired the third edition of this workshop series, together with Prof. Tetsuo Tamai (Hosei University, Japan) and Prof Hausi Muller (University of Victoria, Canada).Other member of our group - Drs. Amel Benacceur, Lionel Montrieux, and Yijun Yu - also gave presentations.
  • Engineering Adaptive Systems - 8-10 April 2015, Bra, Italy. This years's joint OU-NII-Lero Workshop for researchers from The Open University, NII and Lero was expanded to include a number of additional "NII Partners", including our hosts Politecnico di Milano, Imperial College London, Peking University and University of Buenos Aires. Dr Alessandra Russo (Imperial College London) gave a keynote presentation and Shahar Maoz (Tel Aviv University) gave an invited talk.
  • Software Systems Engineering for Smart Cities - 20-21 April 2014, MASDAR Institute, Abu Dhabi, UAE. ​This years's joint OU-NII-Lero Workshop for researchers from The Open University, NII and Lero was hosted by the MASDAR Institute in MASDAR City, Abu Dhabi, UAE. MASDAR City is an ongoing project to build a futuristic "smart city", with the Institute providing a local, focused research effort to contribute to this vision. We are joined this year by Professors Carlo Ghezzi (Politecnico di Milano, Italy) and Sebastian Uchitel (University of Buenes Aires, Argentina).
  • Adaptive Security and Privacy for a Smart World - 30 June - 2 July 2013, Windsor, UK
    Joint OU-NII-Lero Workshop  for researchers from The Open University, NII and Lero to meet and discuss their work and explore avenues for future collaboration.   With the proliferation of ubiquitous computing, it is increasingly important that software engineering research addresses the challenges of building systems that are cognisant of the changing needs of users, of the changing threats to user assets, and of the changing relationships between them.
