IEEE DependSys 2023 conference is the next event in the series of
conferences which offers a timely venue for bringing together new ideas,
techniques, and solutions for dependability and its issues in sensor,
cloud, and big data systems and applications. As we are deep into the
Information Age, huge amounts of data are generated every day from sensors,
individual archives, social networks, Internet of Things, enterprises and
Internet in various scales and format which will pose a major challenge to
the dependability of our designed systems. As these systems oftentend to
become inert, fragile, and vulnerable after a period of running.
Effectively improving the dependability of sensor, cloud, big data systems
and applications has become increasingly critical.

This conference provides a forum for individuals, academics, practitioners,
and organizations who are developing or procuring sophisticated computer
systems on whose dependability of services they need to place great
confidence. Future systems need to close the dependability gap in face of
challenges in different circumstances. The emphasis will be on differing
properties of such services, e.g., continuity, effective performance,
real-time responsiveness, corruption, anomaly, ability to avoid
catastrophic failures, prevention of deliberate privacy intrusions,
reliability, availability, sustainability, adaptability, heterogeneity,
security, safety, and so on.

Submission Guidelines
Submissions must include an abstract, keywords, the e-mail address of the
corresponding author and should not exceed 8 pages for main
conference, including tables and figures in IEEE CS format. The template
files for LATEX or WORD can be downloaded here. All paper. submissions must
represent original and unpublished work. Each submission will be peer
reviewed by at least three program committee members. Submission of a paper
should be regarded as an undertaking that, should the paper be accepted, at
least one
of the authors will register for the conference and present the work.
Submit your paper(s) in PDF file at the submission site:

Proceedings will be published by IEEE CS Press. Distinguished papers
will be invited to  special issues of selected journals listed on the
conference website.
