The 16th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2021)
August 17 - August 20, 2021, TU Wien, Vienna, Austria

The 16th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (“ARES – The International Dependability Conference”) will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability. ARES will highlight the various aspects of dependability – with special focus on the crucial linkage between availability, reliability and security.

ARES aims at a full and detailed discussion of the research issues of dependability as an integrative concept that covers amongst others availability, safety, confidentiality, integrity, maintainability and security in the different fields of applications.

ARES will emphasize the interplay between foundations and practical issues of dependability in emerging areas such as e-government, m-government, location-based applications, ubiquitous computing, autonomous computing, chances of grid computing etc. ARES is devoted to the critical examination and research challenges of the various aspects of Dependable Computing and the definition of a future road map.

The acceptance rate of the ARES 2020 conference was 21,26% (full papers only). ARES 2020 was published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM (ACM ICPS).

ARES is ranked as B-conference in CORE. Qualis (backed by Brazilian Ministry) ranked ARES and Esorics as leading security conference in Europe (A2)

Formating Instructions / template:
Please read the instructions here:

Double blind review: ARES requires anonymized submissions – please make sure that submitted papers contain no author names or obvious self-references.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference.

The ARES submission system (EasyChair) is available here:
Publishing preprints to Arxiv or other, open repositories is allowed prior to the notification of ARES and does not violate the requirement for novelty. Reviewers will be asked to not search for and ignore preprints that can deanonymize blinded submission.

Important Note:
To avoid accepting papers for ARES 2020 which are not presenting original work your paper will be plagiarism checked by Docoloc Plagarism Check. elf-plagiarism also counts as plagiarism!
In case you include previous work in your paper make sure to add the sources accordingly. In case you have questions regarding self-plagiarism please send us an email ( If you don’t want your paper to be checked automatically please contact us.
