Call For Papers


October 25-28, 2009 - Washington, D.C., USA
Technical co-sponsor: IEEE Communication Society



DRCN is a well established biennial forum for scientists, engineers, designers and planners from
industry and academia who have interests in reliability and availability of communication
networks, end systems and related topics. From equipment and technology for survivability to
network management and public policy, through theory and techniques for survivable and robust
network and application design, the aim of the conference is to bring together people from those
disciplines in a lively forum. We hope you will join us in Washington, D.C., USA during October
25-28, 2009.


We seek papers that address theoretical, experimental, systems-related and regulatory issues in
the area of dependability and survivability of communication networks, end-systems and
infrastructure. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Methodologies, equipment and technology for wired/wireless network survivability
* Basic methods and theory for survivable network and systems design, modeling and operation
* Multi-Layer and differentiation protection
* Fault management, monitoring and control
* Security issues in network reliability and its interdependence to survivability
* Applications and services oriented survivability techniques (e.g., P2P, multicast)
* Restoration of services under different types of failures
* Public policy issues for survivability and resilience
* Reliability to emerging technologies (e.g., data center, SCADA and process control systems)
* Survivable network management and/or network planning
* Network resiliency to software attacks


* Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor currently under review by another
conference or journal.
* Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by IEEE.
* All papers must be submitted via the EDAS system at
* Please prepare and submit the manuscript in PDF format using IEEE Conference Proceeding
* Pagelength is limited to 8-pages in two-column IEEE format.
* At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.

A journal special issue based on selected papers from DRCN2009 is currently being planned.

Proposals for Tutorials are also being solicited. Tutorials (half-day sessions) are intended to
provide in-depth learning on a specific topic of interest to the participants. Proposals for
Tutorials should consist of 1000 words summary, a 150 word abstract, and a cover page listing the
details of the presenter(s). Please use the EDAS directly to submit proposals for tutorials,
before May 15, 2009.


* May 1, 2009 Full paper submission (extended deadline)
* May 15, 2009 Tutorial proposals due
* June 30, 2009 Notification of acceptance
* August 15, 2009 Camera Ready Copy due
