Despite the growing demand for compliant business processes, security
and privacy incidents caused by flawed workflow specifications are
still soaring.  Certification as a means to provably attest workflows'
adherence to security properties and auditing to detect violations
happening at runtime are essential instruments to achieve reliably
secure process-aware information systems.  WfSAC brings together
researchers working on well-founded methods for workflow security
audit and certification and industry applying these methods in
practical cases.  WfSAC welcomes contributions with a
multidisciplinary character such as economic, legal, and
standardization aspects.

Topics of interest include:

Accountability                Formalization of security requirements
Access and usage control      Information flow control
Audit reduction               Large-scale auditing
Automated security analysis   Log-formats and security
Behavioral workflow analysis  Meta-models for analysis
Business provenance           Practical experiences
Case studies                  Process mining and reconstruction
Certification/audit standards Workflow forensics
Continuous audit              Workflow similarity
Elucidation of requirements   Workflow transformation
Economic and legal aspects    Workflow redesign
