Fourth Latin-American Symposium on Dependable Computing

Joao Pessoa, Paraiba, BRAZIL
September 1 - 4, 2009

ORGANIZED BY: Federal University of Campina Grande (UFCG)

CO-SPONSORED BY: SBC - Brazilian Computing Society - IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance

IN COOPERATION WITH: IFIP Working Group 10.4 - Dependable Computing and Fault-Tolerance - SMCC: Mexican Society for Computer Science - SCCC: Chilean Computer Science Society - SADIO: Argentine Society for Informatics and Operations Research

LADC is the major Latin-American event dedicated to discussing the many issues related to computer system dependability. This fourth edition is going to occur in Joao Pessoa, Brazil. The LADC program will present technical sessions, workshops, student forum, tutorials and keynote talks from top international experts in the area. The symposium scope spans system, software, and hardware issues. Major topics include, but are not limited to:
- Engineering dependable systems: hardware, networking, software, deployment, and maintenance;
- Dependability of hardware: multi-core, transactional memory, virtualization;
- Dependability of software: analysis, architecture, testing, verification & validation, software certification;
- Dependability of networks: LAN, WAN, mobile, ad-hoc, sensor networks, protocols;
- Dependability of data: storage, databases, middleware;
- Dependability of maintenance: tuning performance and availability, security configuration;
- Dependability and human issues: human-computer interaction, management of complex systems;
- Security: foundations, policies, protocols, access control, intrusion tolerance;
- Safety: incidents & accidents, risk perception and analysis, safety-critical applications and systems;
- Algorithms and methods for dependable computing;
- Dependability and security benchmarking.

Only original papers (not published or under review elsewhere) should be submitted. All submissions must be made electronically through the conference web site. There will be an award for the best paper of the conference. Also, the best papers of the conference will be invited to submit extended and revised versions for publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems ( The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE CS.


Main track papers. Papers should be written in English and can be submitted in the following categories: Regular Papers describing original research, Practical Experience Reports describing an experience or a case study. Regular Papers and Practical Experience Reports should be no longer than 8 and 6 pages, IEEE style double-column format, respectively, including figures, tables, references, and appendices. The font size should be 10 points. The first page should include an abstract, authors' names, addresses and affiliations, and specify whether the submission is a Regular Paper or a Practical Experience Report. The full mailing address, telephone and FAX numbers, as well as e-mail address of the contact author should also be indicated.

Fast abstracts. These are short presentations, either on new ideas or work in progress, or opinion pieces that can address any issue relevant to dependability. Academics and industrial practitioners are invited to submit fast abstracts in English limited to two pages (IEEE style double-column format).

Student forum. The Student Forum at LADC provides an opportunity for students currently working in the area of dependable computing to present and discuss their research objectives, approaches and preliminary results. Student research papers should be single-authored and describe the topic, preliminary results, and future directions of the student's on-going research. Papers submitted to the Forum should be at most three pages in length (IEEE style double-column format). Since there is no revision cycle, the papers must be completely ready for printing.

Tutorials and Workshops. Proposals for full day and half-day tutorials or workshops are also requested. Tutorials proposals should include the lecture outline, assumed background of audience, and bio of the presenter(s). Workshops provide a forum for a group of participants to interact and exchange opinions on topics related to dependable systems. Proposals should include the title, an outline of the theme and goals, as well as a brief bio of the organizer(s).
