Call for Tutorials

The LADC Tutorial program is a forum for leading work on all aspects of dependability, security and resilience of systems and networks, covering both theory and experimental themes. The LADC 2019 invites proposals for tutorials to be held in Natal, Brazil from 21 to 23 November, 2019. Tutorials for either quarter, half or full-day are welcome, whereby respective topic are expected to attract broad interest within the dependable computing community. The proposed topic should be broad enough to provide a gentle introduction to the research area, but it should also cover in-depth the most important contributions.

The tutorial topic can be an established to include (but not limited to) the following list of interested topics:

  • Fault tolerant hardware architectures, multi-core systems, virtualization, nanoscale computers, hardware dependability assessment.
  • Fault-tolerant algorithms and distributed systems.
  • Dependability of networks (LAN, WAN, mobile, ad-hoc, sensor networks, protocols, SDN, Network Slicing).
  • Dependability of software architectures, runtime monitoring, adaptation, model-driven engineering for the design of dependable and secure systems, testing, verification & validation.
  • Dependability and security in the era of Big Data.
  • Dependability and security of cyber-physical systems and systems of systems, communication networks and protocols, data storage and databases.
  • Dependability and human issues, human-computer interaction, management of complex systems.
  • Security foundations, policies, protocols, access control, intrusion detection, intrusion tolerance.
  • Safety-critical systems and applications, incidents & accidents, risk perception, analysis and management, software certification.
  • Dependability and security modeling, measurement and benchmarking.
  • Maintenance, tuning of performance and availability, security configuration (including cloud-slicing).
  • Dependability and security on cloud/edge/fog-computing
  • The dates for tutorial realization will be decided by the conference organizing committee.
