---------- The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on ----------
---------- Reliability and Security Data Analysis ----------
----------             (RSDA 2016)                ----------

co-located with the 46th Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on
Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2016) being held in June 28 -  
July 1, 2016, Toulouse, FRANCE.

The workshop follows its past successful editions held at ISSRE (RSDA  
2014) and DSN (RSDA 2013).
The Program Committee features a balanced mix of academic and industry  
working in cutting-edge research areas and application domains.


- RSDA 2016 is co-located with the top dependability conference and
will feature exciting Keynote and presentations;

- The papers accepted at RSDA 2016 will be included in the DSN  
Supplemental Proceedings
as well as in the DSN-W volume on IEEE Xplore;

- The Authors of outstanding RSDA papers will be invited to submit a  
to a Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure  
Computing (TDSC).

Computer systems are the basis for daily human activities and, more  
they play a key role in a variety of critical domains. Assessing  
dependability properties
of computer systems is today an important concern for engineers and  

The analysis of textual/numeric data and log files produced under real  
workload conditions
by applications, systems, and networks, intrusion detection systems,  
monitors and
issue-trackers plays a key role for dependability assessment.
Data analysis is crucial in a variety of engineering tasks, such as  
measuring availability
and reliability of a system, characterizing failures, gaining insights  
into the progression
of security attacks, designing mitigation means and countermeasures.

Academia and industry widely recognize the inherent potential of  
reliability and security data
analysis for assessing dependability of computer systems and  
operational networks,
and improving the engineering process.
Data analysis in these specific areas poses many challenging research  
questions due to the
heterogeneity, volume and velocity of the collected data, the lack of  
end-to-end analysis procedures, the increasing diversity of analysis  
objectives and emerging
application domains in critical areas.

RSDA 2016 aims to concentrate ideas and contributions from academic and
industrial organizations addressing reliability and security of  
computer systems
through data analysis. RSDA aims to gather high-quality papers on  
data-driven methodologies,
measurements from production systems, and analysis of large datasets.
