When Aug 5, 2021 - Aug 6, 2021
Where Yinchuan, China
Submission Deadline May 20, 2021
Notification Due Jul 1, 2021
Final Version Due Jul 15, 2021

Call For Papers

In 2017, the International Conference on Trustworthy Systems and Their Applications (TSA) and the International Symposium on Dependable Computing and Internet of Things (DCIT) were merged into one large conference and renamed as the International Conference on Dependable Systems and Their Applications (DSA). This year will be the fifth meeting after the merge. In the past, both TSA and DCIT were technically sponsored by the IEEE Reliability Society. Following the same tradition, DSA 2021 also has the same technical sponsorship from IEEE. The focus is on innovative methodologies, techniques, tools, and management to produce dependable and trustworthy systems and their applications in a more cost-effective way. It provides an opportunity for academic researchers, industry practitioners, and government policy and decision makers to exchange ideas and results, share experiences, and explore possible solutions to overcome current challenges. The 2021 DSA will be held from August 5-6 in Yinchuan, China.
