The 53rd Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks

Porto, Portugal, June 27-30, 2023 |

The extensive reliance on computing systems and networks raises numerous dependability challenges. Researchers and practitioners face complex interdisciplinary issues, from manufacturing technology to hardware and software development, networking, integration of complex systems, and cyber-security. The DSN-2023 Industry track provides a forum for interaction between industry and academia, and presentation of the latest R&D and operational challenges, practical solutions, case studies, and field dependability data.

Industry contributions to the DSN community are invited to address dependability issues related to either the development process or the operation of critical systems as seen from an industrial perspective.

The topics of interest target several aspects of dependable systems and networks:

  • Hardware (e.g., VLSI, FPGA, chiplets, and SoC)
  • Technology (e.g., GAA-FET, nanotechnology, soft errors, and obsolescence of HW components, quantum)
  • Networks (e.g., networks on a chip, optical networks, and wireless networks)
  • Software (e.g., applications, middleware, SaaS, and operating systems)
  • Security (e.g., hardware and software cyber-security, and network security)
  • Safety (e.g., autonomous systems/objects, car-to-X, plane-to-X systems)
  • Field data (e.g. hardware and software fault/error data)
  • Applications (e.g., embedded systems, autonomous vehicles)

The Industry Track aims in particular at promoting and fostering discussion on advanced current work in an industrial context, feedback from experiments, scalability issues regarding recent techniques, novel technology-related problems, etc.

The objective of this track is not to compete with the main DSN track, where finalized research and development work is presented, but to give the members of industrial and academic communities the opportunity to discuss hot topics regarding the future of dependable systems and networks, and to share experience among different industrial domains:

  • Dependability of Cyber-physical Systems and Internet of Things
  • Safety and Security of Intelligent Vehicles and Infrastructure as a Service
  • Dependability, Privacy, and Security of Cloud Data Centers
  • Dependability and Security of Big Data Systems and Extreme Scale Systems
  • Dependability and Security of System Operation
  • Trustworthiness of Critical Infrastructure (like Smart Grids)
  • Dependability of Blockchain and Financial Technology (Fintech) Systems
  • Dependability (Safety and Security and Confidentiality) of Machine Learning
  • Modern software design and development techniques for dependable system (like agile techniques, new languages)

Important dates

  • Abstract Submission Deadline: March 21, 2023
  • Paper Submission Deadline: March 28, 2023
  • Notification: April 21, 2023
  • Camera Ready Materials: May 5, 2023

Submission Guidelines

We solicit contributions addressing different aspects:

  • focus on specific dependability aspects in practice, either a product or service offered to the market or dependability analysis tools.
  • emphasize dependability challenges, practical solutions, tradeoffs, strengths and weaknesses of adopted solutions, lessons learned, and field and/or measured data.
  • All materials must be written in English up to 6 pages (IEEE double-column format). Papers must be submitted in their final form.

Practical aspects of previously presented scientific papers in a recent conference or edition are welcome, it helps if a clear connection and added value is pointed out.

Contributions must be in PDF and submitted through EasyChair, selecting the track DSN-2023 Industry Track:

Submissions will undergo a single-blind review process.

All accepted papers/abstracts will be published in the DSN supplemental volume and made available in IEEE Xplore. Accepted materials will be presented in dedicated sessions.
