PRDC 2014 : The 20th IEEE Pacific Rim International Symposium on Dependable Computing
Conference Series : Pacific Rim International Symposium on Dependable Computing
Call For Papers
Call for Papers
PRDC 2014 is the twentieth in this series of symposia started in 1989 that are devoted to dependable and fault-tolerant computing. PRDC is recognized as the main event in the Pacific area that covers the many dimensions of dependability and fault tolerance, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial components and systems. As applications of computing systems have permeated into all aspects of daily life, the dependability of computing systems has become increasingly critical. This symposium provides a forum for countries around the Pacific Rim and other areas of the world to exchange ideas for improving the dependability of computing systems.
Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
Software and hardware reliability, testing, verification, and validation
Dependability measurement, modeling, evaluation, and tools
Self-healing, self-protecting, and fault-tolerant systems
Software aging and rejuvenation
Safety-critical systems and software
Architecture and system design for dependability
Fault-tolerant algorithms and protocols
Reliability in cloud computing, Internet, and web systems and applications
Cloud and Internet Information security
Dependability issues in computer networks and communications
Dependability issues in distributed and parallel systems
Dependability issues in real-time systems, database, and transaction processing systems
Dependability issues in autonomic computing
Dependability issues in aerospace and embedded systems
Manuscripts should be submitted in the following categories: Regular Papers and Practical Experience Reports. Regular Papers should describe original research (not submitted or published elsewhere) and be not more than 10 pages using IEEE format guidelines or 20 pages double-spaced. Practical Experience Reports (max 6 pages using IEEE format guidelines or 12 pages double-spaced) should describe an experience or a case study, such as the design and deployment of a system or actual failure and recovery field data. The title page should include a 150-word abstract, five keywords, authors' names and affiliations, and a line specifying whether the submission is a Regular Paper or a Practical Experience Report. The full mailing address, phone, fax, and email address of the corresponding author should be specified.
All submissions must be made electronically (in PDF format) on the submission web site . Papers will be reviewed internationally and selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. One outstanding paper will be selected to receive the Best Paper Award.
Submission deadline:May 2, 2014
Notification:June 25, 2014
