RSDA 2014 : The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Reliability and Security Data Analysis (co-located with ISSRE 2014)
Call For Papers
*** NEXT Workshop Edition: ***
Reliability and Security Data Analysis (RSDA) 2016
co-located with the 46th Annual IEEE/IFIP DSN, Toulouse (FR) - Jun 28, 2016
The 2nd IEEE International Workshop on Reliability and Security Data Analysis (RSDA 2014) is co-located with the 25th IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE) being held in November 3-6, 2014, Naples, ITALY.
RSDA 2014 follows its past successful edition held at DSN 2013. RSDA Committees ensure a balanced mix between academic and industrial participation, and cutting-edge research areas and application domains.
We are pleased to announce that the RSDA 2014 keynote talk will be given by Brendan Murphy of Microsoft Research, UK. For more information, visit the RSDA keynote page (http://www.mobilab.unina.it/RSDA2014/keynote.html).
*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***
The inherent potential of reliability and security data is well recognized by academia and industry for assessing dependability properties of computer systems and operational networks, and improving the engineering process. Analysis of textual logs and numeric data produced under real workload conditions by applications, systems, and networks, intrusion detection systems, and issue trackers plays a key role for engineers and practitioners. Nevertheless, in spite of decades of research and methodological advances, data analysis in this specific area keeps posing challenging research questions due to the heterogeneity, volume and velocity of the collected data, the lack of systematic end-to-end analysis procedures, the increasing diversity of analysis objectives and emerging application domains in critical areas.
The workshop aims to concentrate ideas and contributions from academic and industrial organizations addressing reliability and security aspects of computer systems and networks through data analysis. The past RSDA edition has established a forum to stimulate scientific research and discuss analysis techniques, procedures and tools that are currently adopted to manage, analyze or evaluate reliability and security data sets. The expected output of the workshop is to keep fostering synergies between researchers and industrial bodies of different research communities concerned by RSDA and establishing the agenda of future research activities in the area.
