As computer systems become increasingly large and complex, their Dependability, Security and Autonomy play critical role at supporting next-generation science, engineering, and commercial applications. These systems consist of heterogeneous software/hardware/network components of changing capacities, availability, and in varied contexts. They provide computing services to large pools of users and applications, and thus are exposed to a number of dangers such as accidental/deliberate faults, virus infections, malicious attacks, illegal intrusions, and natural disasters etc. As a result, too often computer systems fail, become compromised, or perform poorly and therefore untrustworthy. Thus, it remains a challenge to design, analyze, evaluate, and improve the dependability and security for a trusted computing environment. Trusted computing targets computing and communication systems as well as services that are autonomous, dependable, secure, privacy protect-able, predictable, traceable, controllable, assessable and sustainable.
The scale and complexity of information systems evolve towards overwhelming the capability of system administrators, programmers, and designers. This calls for the autonomic computing paradigm, which meets the requirement of self-management by providing self-optimization, self-healing, self-configuration, and self-protection. As a promising means to implement dependable and secure systems in a self-managing manner, autonomic computing technology needs to be further explored. On the other hand, any autonomic system must be trustworthy to avoid the risk of losing control and retain confidence that the system will not fail. Trusted and autonomic computing and communications need synergistic research efforts covering many disciplines, ranging from computer science and engineering, to the natural sciences to the social sciences. It requires scientific and technological advances in a wide variety of fields, as well as new software, system architectures, and communication systems that support the effective and coherent integration of the constituent technologies.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions must include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the corresponding author and should not exceed 8 pages for main conference, including tables and figures in IEEE CS format. The template files for LATEX or WORD can be downloaded here. All paper submissions must represent original and unpublished work. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the conference and present the work. Submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the DASC2011 submission site:


Accepted and presented papers will be included into the IEEE Conference Proceedings published by IEEE CS Press. Authors of accepted papers, or at least one of them, are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise their papers will be removed from the digital libraries of IEEE CS and EI after the conference.

Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be published in special issues of Journal of Computer and System Sciences; or Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience.
