DCDS '19

DSN Workshop on Data-Centric Dependability and Security

June 24, 2019, Portland, Oregon, USA

Call For Papers

The one-day DCDS'19 workshop aims at providing researchers with a forum to exchange and discuss scientific contributions and open challenges, both theoretical and practical, related to the use of data-centric approaches that promote the dependability and cybersecurity of computing systems. We want to foster joint work and knowledge exchange between the dependability and security communities, and researchers and practitioners from areas such as machine and statistical learning, and data science and visualization.

The workshop provides a forum for discussing novel trends in data-centric processing technologies and the role of such technologies in the development of resilient systems. It aims to discuss novel approaches for processing and analysing data generated by the systems as well as information gathered from open sources, leveraging from data science, machine and statistical learning techniques, and visualization. The workshop shall contribute to identify new application areas as well as open and future research problems, for data-centric approaches to system dependability and security.

Topics of interest

  • Data-driven dependability and security
  • Machine/statistical learning for dependability and security
  • Informed machine learning for security
  • Data modelling and Visualization
  • Threat detection and prevention
  • Open source intelligence (OSINT) based threat awareness
  • Data-driven improvements for SIEM’s
  • Risk modeling and assessment
  • Fault tolerance

Important dates (AoE)

  • Paper submission: March 15, 2019
  • Notification to authors: April 1, 2019
  • Camera ready: April 13, 2019

Paper Submission

DCDS welcomes submissions in two formats:

  • Regular research papers of at most 8 pages including references. Research papers should be work that is not previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere and will be published in the proceedings.
  • Short research statements of at most 1-2 pages. Research statements aim at fostering discussion and collaboration. Research statements may summarize research published elsewhere or outline new emerging ideas.

All submissions should be in PDF and must adhere to the IEEE Computer Society 8.5″x11″ two-column camera-ready format (using a 10-point font on 12-point single-spaced leading). Templates are available here: https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

Reviewing is single-blind, and the names and affiliations of the authors must appear in the submitted papers. Submissions that do not respect the formatting requirement may be rejected without review.

Publication

Authors of accepted full papers will have 30 minutes for presentation and discussion during the workshop, while authors of short papers will have 15 minutes.

At least one author of an accepted paper must register at the workshop.

Accepted regular papers will be published in the DSN supplemental volume and made available in IEEE Xplore.
