**************************** IEEE DASC 2016 CFP ***************************
The 14th IEEE International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing
(DASC 2016)
Auckland, New Zealand, 8-12 August 2016
Sponsored by
IEEE, IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC)


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 capabilities, 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, 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, analyse, 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 requirements 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 and 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.

DASC 2016 will be held on 8-12 August 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand, co-located with CyberSciTech 2016, IEEE DataCom 2016 and IEEE PICom 2016. It aims to bring together computer scientists, industrial engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange experimental and theoretical results, novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case studies, and trend-setting ideas in the areas of dependability, security, trust and/or autonomic computing systems.

Workshop Proposal Due: 29 February 2016
Submission Due(Research papers): 15 March 2016
Author Notification: 30 April 2016
Submission Due(Demo/Poster papers): 5 May 2016
Author Notification: 20 May 2016


Authors are invited to submit their original research work that has not previously been published or under review in any other venue. Papers should be prepared in IEEE CS Proceedings format and submitted via DASC 2016 website:

Research paper (8 pages) should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with experimental results. Demo/Poster papers (4 pages) must describe working systems and be within the scope of DASC. These systems may be innovative prototype implementations or mature systems that use related technology. Poster/demo papers need to be submitted to the Poster/Demo Chair. Workshop and Special Session papers need to be submitted to the corresponding workshops and special sessions.

Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press (EI indexed). At least one of the authors of any accepted paper is requested to register and present the paper at the conference. Extended versions of selected excellent papers will be considered for fast-track publication in special issues of prestige journals (SCI/EI indexed).
