Call for Workshops

EDCC-2010 is inviting proposals for one-day and half-day high-quality workshops in the area of dependability. Proposals may be on any topic related to dependability, with a particular interest in new and emerging areas.

EDCC Workshops will take place one day before the main conference in Valencia, Spain, on April 27, 2010.

Workshop proposals (not exceeding three pages, 11pt) should include the following information:

  • The title of the workshop
  • A technical description of the workshop topic area
  • A short description of the intended length and format of the workshop
  • A brief statement of the relevance of the workshop to EDCC
  • The names and e-mail addresses of the organising committee
  • A list of proposed program committee members

Accepted workshops will organise their own publicity, submissions and peer-review procedures. They should provide their own web page, which will be linked from the EDCC 2010 web site. Accepted workshop papers should follow the standard ACM format and be no longer than 6 pages. Workshop organisers are responsible to prepare the papers for their workshops in the form required by the ACM. The EDCC organisation team will provide companion proceedings covering all workshops and we plan to make all workshop papers available in the ACM Digital Library. Camera-ready papers will be required by 26 February 2010.

Conference Background

Organised every two years, EDCC is the leading regional conference series to discuss advances on the dependability of computer systems in Europe. As in previous years, its eighth edition aims at providing a European-hosted venue for researchers and practitioners from all over the world to present and discuss their latest research results on fault tolerance, dependability, security, and testing. Original papers are 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.
