12th Latin-American Symposium on Dependable and Secure Computing (LADC 2023), Call for Papers
Co-located with CLEI 2023 (XLIX Conferencia Latinoamericana de Informática), October 16-20, in La Paz, Bolívia.

The Latin-American Symposium on Dependable and Secure Computing (LADC) is the major event on dependability and security of computer systems in Latin America. LADC 2023 will feature technical sessions, workshops, tutorials, fast abstracts, keynote talks from international experts in the area, and an industrial track.

The Symposium is promoted by the Special Committee on Fault-Tolerant Systems (CE-TF) of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). LADC 2023 will be co-located with the 49th Latin American Informatics Conference (CLEI 2023) in La Paz, Bolivia from 16-20 October 2023, coinciding with the celebration of the 475th anniversary of the city’s foundation in 1548.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original research papers for presentation at the symposium in two categories: (1) full research (regular) papers, and (2) practical experience reports. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category. LADC looks for works exploring new territory, continuing significant research, or reflecting on practical experience. While full research manuscripts should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with extensive results, practical experience reports are expected to provide an in-depth exposition of practitioner experience and empirical studies.

All aspects of dependable and secure systems and networks are within the scope of LADC, including fault-tolerant architectures, protocols, and algorithms, models for performance and dependability evaluation, as well as experimentation and assessment of dependable and secure systems and networks. Authors are invited to submit original papers on research and practice of creating, validating, deploying, and maintaining dependable and secure systems and networks.

Topics of Interest
- Critical infrastructure protection, cyber-physical systems, safety-critical systems

The proceedings of LADC 2023 will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceeding Series (ICPS) and indexed by the ACM Digital Library. The Best Paper Award is also a tradition in LADC and will be selected among the submitted works.

NEW!!! LADC 2023 will be followed by a special issue in The JISA – Journal of Internet Services and Applications (Qualis CAPES A2). The authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit an extended version for the journal special issue.

Submission Guidelines

Papers must be written in English. All submissions are single-blind and will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Research Papers and Practical Experience Reports should be no longer than 10 pages and 6 pages, respectively, using the ACM sigconf template (double column, \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart} for LaTeX). The category of the paper should be clearly marked on the first page. Authors are requested to first register their submissions and then submit their manuscripts in PDF format at the JEMS webpage ( JEMS limits to a maximum of 8 authors per paper. Including more than 8 authors is allowed but must be indicated to the TPC chairs after acceptance notification.

Important Dates
- Abstract submission: May 31, 2023
- Manuscript submission: May 31, 2023
- Notification of acceptance: July 16, 2023
- Camera-ready: July 30, 2023
- Symposium: October 16-20, 2023
