Call for Papers for EDCC 2014
The Tenth European Dependable Computing Conference May 13-16, 2014 - Newcastle upon Tyne, UK http://edcc.dependability.org/

Important dates
Paper submission: October 13, 2013
Author notification: January 20, 2014
Final version of papers: February 17, 2014


The 21st century society relies on computing systems more than ever. Computers are no longer simple machines that are used by organizations or at home. They became ubiquitous and are embedded everywhere, from cell phones and human bodies to cars or industrial control devices; moreover large-scale cloud computing providers are sharing them among many organizations in an unprecedented scale. As computers have become indispensable, their failures may significantly perturb our daily lives. The increased hardware and software complexity, the expending concerns about security and privacy, as well as computer proliferation into new areas, pose new challenges to the developers. As a consequence the development, testing, and benchmarking of dependable systems has become a vital topic of research, both for academia and industry.

Since its first edition held in 1994 in Berlin, EDCC has become the leading European conference for presenting and discussing the latest research in dependable computing. As in previous years, its 10th anniversary edition aims at providing a European-hosted venue for researchers and practitioners from all over the world to present and discuss their latest research results on dependability, security, fault-tolerance, and testing. Original papers are solicited on theory, techniques, systems, and tools for the design, validation, operation and evaluation of dependable and secure computing systems, covering any fault model, from traditional hardware and software faults to accidental and malicious human interactions.

EDCC-2014 will cover a broad range of topics, including, but is not limited to:
* Hardware and software architecture of dependable systems;

EDCC 2014 will feature several tracks, including invited speakers, full paper presentations, fast abstracts, a student forum and a set of cutting-edge workshops. IEEE Conference Publishing Services (CPS) will publish the proceedings.

Conference location

EDCC 2014 will be held in the city of Newcastle, United Kingdom. Newcastle is a lively, friendly and modern city, with a compact city centre and renowned cultural venues, including the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, host to the 2011 Turner Prize, and the Sage Gateshead music centre. The city was one of the birthplaces of the industrial revolution, playing host to the development of George Stephenson's Rocket and the invention of the first steam turbine. It remains a hub for world-class research and has been designated as one of six UK Science Cities. For anyone wanting to escape to more rural surroundings, Newcastle is close to the Northumberland National Park and the historic cities of Durham and York are easily reachable by train. The city also boasts excellent transport links: it is situated on the East Coast Mainline from London to Edinburgh and Newcastle International Airport offers direct flights to a range of international destinations. The Tyne and Wear Metro allows easy travel to local destinations, including the airport and the coast.

Paper categories

The conference is inviting submissions to its main track in the following categories. Both academic and industrial submissions are welcomed in any category.

All papers accepted in the conference main track in any of these categories will be published in the conference proceedings.


All submissions must be made electronically through the EasyChair submission web page, and should clearly indicate in which category the paper is being submitted. https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=edcc2014

The title page of each submission should include a 150-word abstract, five keywords, authors’ names and addresses and include a line specifying the submission category. The full mailing address, phone, fax and email address of the corresponding author should be indicated.
Except for information on the corresponding author and the submission category, the submission format is the same as the camera-ready format. In particular, submissions must adhere to the CPS camera-ready 8.5?x11? two-column format, and respect the length requirements of their submission category. Pages must be numbered. Templates and further details can be found at:

Each paper must be submitted as a single Portable Document Format (PDF) file. We recommend that you embed fonts where possible to improve portability. We also strongly recommend you print the file and review it for integrity (fonts, symbols, equations etc.) before submitting it. A defective printing of your paper can undermine its chance of success.

Other categories

Workshops, Fast-abstracts, Student forum will be announced later.
