CALL FOR PAPERS
Dependable Computing and Communications
and communications systems increasingly affect our everyday
lives, their dependability is important not just for convenience, but
also to avoid significant financial losses or even risk to human life.
As new computer and communications technologies are developed, and as
computer technology is applied in new domains, emerging dependability
challenges are constantly introduced into our community.
Dependability of a system depends on all of its constituent parts
including architecture, networking, hardware, software design and
implementation, and management of the system. DCCS covers dependability
in such individual areas as well as comprehensive holistic system
dependability. To advance the field, integrate theory and practice, and
to exchange ideas and experiences, DCCS brings together academic and
industrial researchers in dependability and security spanning all
aspects of system/software design, validation, deployment, and
We welcome research papers, practical experience
