Co-Located Conference:
The 15th International Conference on Algorithms and Architectures for
Parallel Processing (ICA3PP 2015)


IEEE PRDC 2015 is the twenty-first event in the series of symposia started
in 1989 that are devoted to dependable and fault-tolerant computing. PRDC
is recognized as the main event in the Pacific area that covers many
dimensions of dependability and fault tolerance, encompassing fundamental
theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial
components and systems. As applications of computing systems have permeated
into all aspects of daily life, the dependability of computing systems has
become increasingly critical. This symposium provides a forum for countries
around the Pacific Rim and other areas of the world to exchange ideas for
improving the dependability of computing systems.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to):

(1) Software and hardware reliability, testing, verification, and validation
(2) Dependability measurement, modeling, evaluation, and tools
(3) Self-healing, self-protecting, and fault-tolerant systems
(4) Software aging and rejuvenation
(5) Safety-critical systems and software
(6) Architecture and system design for dependability
(7) Fault-tolerant algorithms and protocols
(8) Reliability in cloud computing, Internet, and web systems and
(9) Cloud and Internet Information security
(10) Dependability issues in computer networks and communications
(11) Dependability issues in distributed and parallel systems
(12) Dependability issues in real-time systems, database, and transaction
processing systems
(13) Dependability issues in autonomic computing
(14) Dependability issues in aerospace and embedded systems
(15) Dependability issues in cyber-physical systems
(16) Dependability issues in socio-technical systems

Submission and Publication Information

Manuscripts should be submitted in the following categories: Regular Papers
and Practical Experience Reports. Regular Papers should describe original
research (not submitted or published elsewhere) and be not more than 10
pages using IEEE format guidelines or 20 pages double-spaced (
Practical Experience Reports (max 6 pages using IEEE format guidelines or
12 pages double-spaced) should describe an experience or a case study, such
as the design and deployment of a system or actual failure and recovery
field data. The title page should include a 150-word abstract, five
keywords, authors' names and affiliations, and a line specifying whether
the submission is a Regular Paper or a Practical Experience Report. The
full mailing address, phone, fax, and email address of the corresponding
author should be specified.

All submissions must be made electronically (in PDF format) on the
submission web site (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=prdc2015).
Papers will be reviewed internationally and selected based on their
originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. All
accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. One
outstanding paper will be selected to receive the Best Paper Award.
Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in several
SCI & EI indexed special issues (Pending).
