------------------ CALL FOR PAPERS ------------------

The 4th International Workshop on
Reliability and Security Data Analysis (RSDA 2019)

co-located with The 30th Annual IEEE International
Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2019)
Berlin, GERMANY 28-31 Oct 2019

RSDA is a well-established venue that aims to gather high-quality  
papers on reliability and security data analysis.
The workshop follows its three past successful editions held at DSN  
2016, ISSRE 2014, and DSN 2013.

The 4th RSDA Edition is co-located with the prestigious 30th Annual  
IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability
Engineering (ISSRE 2019) being held in Oct 28 - 31, 2019, Berlin, GERMANY.

RSDA is a friendly and lively forum to stimulate scientific research  
and practice on reliability and security data.
Both research papers and industry experience reports are welcome in  
any application area, domain and topic of RSDA
listed below. We warmly invite you to visit the workshop webpage to  
learn more.

Please consider submitting your papers and forwarding this email to  
your colleagues!






The inherent potential of reliability and security data is well  
recognized by academia and industry for assessing
dependability properties of computer systems and operational networks,  
and improving the engineering process.
Analysis of textual logs and numeric data produced under real workload  
conditions by applications, systems, and networks,
intrusion detection systems, and issue trackers plays a key role for  
engineers and practitioners. Nevertheless, in spite
of decades of research and methodological advances, data analysis in  
this specific area keeps posing challenging research
questions due to the heterogeneity, volume and velocity of the  
collected data, the lack of systematic end-to-end analysis
procedures, the increasing diversity of analysis objectives and  
emerging application domains in critical areas.


RSDA 2019 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.

The past RSDA editions have established a friendly and lively forum to  
stimulate scientific research and discuss analysis
techniques, procedures and tools that are currently adopted to manage,  
analyze or evaluate reliability and security data sets.

The expected output of the workshop is to keep fostering synergies  
between researchers and industrial bodies of different
research communities concerned by RSDA and establishing the agenda of  
future research activities in the area.


The workshop addresses the following topics:

- Event logs and security-related data collection, processing and management;
- Monitoring and analysis of resource utilization metrics;
- Dependability and security monitoring, measurement and modeling;
- Anomaly detection;
- Analysis of attacks, defenses, and countermeasures;
- Adversarial machine learning:
- Security Information and Event Management (SIEM);
- Data visualization;
- Intrusion detection and prevention;
- Denial-of-Service and botnet analysis, detection, and mitigation;
- Application security status monitoring;
- Behavior-based fraud and threat detection;
- Insider threat and functional misuse detection;
- Error/Failure detection and characterization;
- Failure prediction and recovery techniques;
- Failure data analysis and field studies;
- Fault and intrusion tolerance;
- Defect analysis and Software Reliability Growth Models (SRGM);
- Dependability and security forensics;
- Generation of synthetic data sets for benchmarking  
dependability/security techniques;
- Dependability and security analysis of large datasets and production  

Relevant application areas include, but are not limited to:

- Application dependability and security;
- Distributed, parallel, clustered and grid systems;
- Critical infrastructures protection;
- Cloud;
- Mobile systems and services;
- Middleware, database and transactional systems;
- Operating systems;
- Web-based information systems.


Submissions must not exceed 6 pages; they must be written in English  
and adhere to the double column
IEEE conference style format. Submissions must be made electronically  
and imply the willingness of at
least one of the authors to register and attend the workshop, if accepted.

The papers accepted at RSDA will be included in the ISSRE 2019  
Supplemental Proceedings
as well as in the ISSRE-W volume on IEEE Xplore as workshop papers.

Submission link and instructions are available at the webpage
