Call For Papers

The 5th Workshop on Data-Centric Dependability and Security (DCDS)
Co-located with the 53rd Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN)
27 June - 30 June 2023
Porto, Portugal

Get the CFP:

Today’s computing systems are increasingly networked, complex and diverse, integrating multiple distinct components with different configurations. They operate under increasing scales and in dynamic operating environments, generating more and more functional and non-functional data and processing a myriad of data received from other systems. Along with open source intelligence, this data can be fused and exploited to improve the security and dependability of systems, making them more resilient to cyberattacks, accident faults and unexpected operating conditions. Additionally, as systems grow in complexity and size, they become harder to manage and report on. This calls for solutions combining the latest advances in areas such as large-scale data processing, data science, visualization and machine and statistical learning.

DCDS’23 aims at providing researchers with a forum to exchange and discuss scientific contributions and open challenges, both theoretical and practical, related to the use of data-centric approaches that promote the dependability and cybersecurity of computing systems. We want to foster joint work and knowledge exchange between the dependability and security communities, and researchers and practitioners from areas such as machine and statistical learning, and data science and visualization. The workshop provides a forum for discussing novel trends in data-centric processing technologies and the role of such technologies in the development of resilient systems. It aims to discuss novel approaches for processing and analysing data generated by the systems as well as information gathered from open sources, leveraging from data science, machine and statistical learning techniques, and visualization. The workshop shall contribute to identify new application areas as well as open and future research problems, for data-centric approaches to system dependability and security.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Data-driven dependability and security
Machine/statistical learning for dependability and security
Informed machine learning for security
Data modelling and Visualization
Threat detection and prevention
Fault/Vulnerability detection
Open source intelligence (OSINT) based threat awareness
Data-driven improvements for SIEM’s
Risk modeling and assessment
Fault tolerance

# Paper Categories
DCDS welcomes both research papers reporting results from mature work, as well as more speculative papers describing new ideas or preliminary exploratory work. Papers reporting industry experiences and case studies will also be encouraged. Submissions are accepted in two formats conforming to the IEEE two-column conference style:
- Regular research papers of at most 8 pages, including references.
- Position research papers of at most 4 pages, including references. Position papers may summarize ongoing research elsewhere or outline new emerging ideas.

Research papers should be work that is not previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere and will be published in the proceedings.

# Paper Submission
All submissions should be made in PDF and must adhere to the IEEE Computer Society 8.5″x11″ two-column camera-ready format (using a 10-point font on 12-point single-spaced leading). Templates are available here:

Reviewing is single-blind. The names and affiliations of authors must appear in the submitted papers. Submissions not respecting format requirements may be rejected without review.

Papers can be submitted using the following submission website:
