The 14th IEEE International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure
(DASC 2016)
Auckland, New Zealand, 8-12 August 2016
Sponsored by
IEEE, IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable
Computing (TCSC)


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 capabilities, 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, analyse, 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 protect-able, predictable, traceable, controllable,
assessable and sustainable.

The scale and complexity of information systems evolve towards overwhelming
the capability of system administrators, programmers, and designers. This
calls for the autonomic computing paradigm, which meets the requirements of
self-management by providing self-optimization, self-healing,
self-configuration, and self-protection. As a promising means to implement
dependable and secure systems in a self-managing manner, autonomic
computing technology needs to be further explored. On the other hand, any
autonomic system must be trustworthy to avoid the risk of losing control
and retain confidence that the system will not fail. Trusted and autonomic
computing and communications need synergistic research efforts covering
many disciplines, ranging from computer science and engineering, to the
natural sciences and the social sciences. It requires scientific and
technological advances in a wide variety of fields, as well as new
software, system architectures, and communication systems that support the
effective and coherent integration of the constituent technologies.

DASC 2016 will be held on 8-12 August 2016 in Auckland, New Zealand,
co-located with CyberSciTech 2016, IEEE DataCom 2016 and IEEE PICom 2016.
It aims to bring together computer scientists, industrial engineers, and
researchers to discuss and exchange experimental and theoretical results,
novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case studies, and
trend-setting ideas in the areas of dependability, security, trust and/or
autonomic computing systems.

Workshop Proposal Due: 29 February 2016
Paper Submission Due: 31 March 2016
Author Notification: 30 April 2016
Demo/Poster Papers Submission Due: 5 May 2016
Author Notification: 20 May 2016
Camera-ready Paper Due: 31 May 2016
Registration Due: 31 May 2016


Authors are invited to submit their original research work that has not
previously been published or under review in any other venue. Papers should
be prepared in IEEE CS Proceedings format and submitted via DASC 2016
website: http://cse.stfx.ca/~dasc2016/sub/.

Research paper (8 pages) should explore a specific technology problem and
propose a complete solution to it, with experimental results. Demo/Poster
papers (4 pages) must describe working systems and be within the scope of
DASC. These systems may be innovative prototype implementations or mature
systems that use related technology. Poster/demo papers need to be
submitted to the Poster/Demo Chair. Workshop and Special Session papers
need to be submitted to the corresponding workshops and special sessions.

Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE conference
proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press (EI indexed). At least
one of the authors of any accepted paper is requested to register and
present the paper at the conference. Extended versions of selected
excellent papers will be considered for fast-track publication in special
issues of prestige journals (SCI/EI indexed).
