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 capacities, 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, analyze, 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 protectable, predictable, traceable, controllable, assessable and sustainable.
The DASC 2017 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the 15th IEEE International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing (DASC 2017) to be held in Orlando Florida, USA, November 6-10, 2017 (http://cse.stfx.ca/~dasc2017/index.php).
The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have full control on the call for papers, forming of program committees, review and selection of papers as well as planning the workshop program. The registration fees for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, and proceedings.
Any further expense of the workshop, such as the financial aid to the invited speakers, MUST be provided by the workshop itself upon getting some sponsors for their own workshops. The money from workshop sponsors will be received and handled by the workshop itself.
* Workshop proposal submission due date: May 19, 2017
* Notification: May 26, 2017
* Workshop Dates: TBD
