Abstract: Privacy Requirements for Ubiquitous Computing systems are hard to elicit, depending as they do on users' context and subjective preferences, and changing over time as users' contexts and goals change. This talk discusses a number of past and current qualitative empirical studies investigating the nature of privacy in modern pervasive computing systems, and suggests some requirements-driven software development approaches for the development of privacy-aware adaptive systems.

Bashar Nuseibeh is Professor of Computing at The Open University (Director of Research 2001-2008) and a Professor of Software Engineering at Lero - The Irish Software Research Centre (Chief Scientist 2009-2012). Previously he was a Reader in Computing at at Imperial College London and Head of its Software Engineering Laboratory. He is currently a Visiting Professor at both Imperial College London and the National Institute of Informatics (NII), Tokyo, Japan. He served as Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering and of the Automated Software Engineering Journal, and currently serves as Software Engineering Editor of ACM Books. He chaired the Steering Committee of the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) and IFIP Working Group 2.9 on Requirements Engineering. He received a Philip Leverhulme Prize, an ICSE Most Influential Paper Award, an Automated Software Engineering Fellowship, and a Senior Research Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering. His research work crosses a number of discipline boundaries in computing, and has received best paper/artefact awards in software engineering (e.g., best paper at RE and ENASE), Logic Programming (e.g. best application paper at ICLP), Human-Computer Interaction (e.g. best research video at CHI), natural language processing (e.g., best paper and best tool at MedNLP), and security & privacy (e.g. best paper at TrustCom 2014). He currently holds a Royal Society-Wolfson Merit Award and a European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant on Adaptive Security and Privacy.
