The Second International Workshop on Security Ontologies and Taxonomies (SecOnt 2013) will be held in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2013) on September 3 in Regensburg, Germany. With SecOnT we aim at establishing a highly specialized annual meeting to conduct in-depth research discussions and to identify collaboration opportunities among the participants. The preliminary program for the 2013 workshop:

  1. Introductory talk by Stefan Fenz which touches (i) security ontology applications (risk and compliance management, awareness, incident handling, etc.), (ii) recent developments on the European and international level, (iii) emerging domains which could be supported by security ontologies (e.g., smart grid area), (iv) current challenges of the domain, (v) current limitations of security ontologies, and (vi) potential strategies to enable ontology-based knowledge sharing (incentives and barriers).
