18th European Dependable Computing Conference
12-15 September 2022
Zaragoza, Spain

Call for Papers

The European Dependable Computing Conference is a unique forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their latest research results on theory, techniques, systems, and tools for the design, validation, operation and evaluation of dependable and secure computing systems.

Topics


The conference will cover a broad perspective on dependability and security, which includes, but is not limited to:

  • Hardware and software architectures of dependable systems
  • Model-driven engineering approaches
  • Fault-tolerant networks & ultra-reliable low-latency communication
  • Dependability modelling and tools
  • Testing and validation methods
  • Development of safety and security-critical systems
  • Dependability and security of
    • Critical infrastructures, e.g. smart energy grids, intelligent transportation systems, smart cities
    • Cyber-physical systems
    • (Industrial) Internet of Things
    • Cloud, fog, and edge computing systems
    • Data analytics applications & systems based on machine learning and artificial intelligence
    • Databases and distributed ledgers (incl. Blockchains)
    • Artificial intelligence approaches
  • Data protection and data privacy

Paper Categories


The conference is inviting submissions to its different tracks in the following categories (two-column IEEE format):

  1. Regular papers (up to 8 pages) solicited on theory, techniques, systems, and tools for the design, validation, operation and evaluation of dependable and secure computing systems, covering any fault model, from traditional hardware and software faults to accidental and malicious human interactions.
  2. Industrial track papers (up to 8 pages). Traditionally, EDCC has strong ties to industry and practical problems. Hence, this track intends to attract papers directly related to an industrial use case or papers stemming from industry (at least one of the authors) with relation to a novel application of or new insights into practical aspects of dependability. The papers will undergo the normal review process but the practical experience aspects and insights into industrial application will be rated highly. A submission in this category must be clearly marked as such.
  3. Short papers (3-4 pages) describing preliminary research work or position papers, a prototype/tool description, outlining the design or implementation of a software tool, or the prototyping of an operational system. A submission in this category must be clearly marked as such.

All submissions must be made electronically through the EasyChair submission web page. First, log on to EasyChair and then access the submissions page through the author submission link.

The conference proceedings will be published by IEEE Conference Publishing Services (CPS).

In particular, submissions must adhere to the CPS camera-ready two-column format. Pages must be numbered. Templates and further details can be found here.
