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-2020 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, and SOC)
Technology (e.g., FinFET, nanotechnology, soft errors, and obsolescence of HW components)
Networks (e.g., networks on a chip, optical networks, and wireless networks)
Software (e.g., applications, middleware, and operating systems)
Security (e.g., hardware and software cyber-security, and network security)
Field data (e.g. hardware and software fault/error data)
Applications (e.g., embedded systems, drive by wire, and 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 Issues in Software Defined Data Centers
Dependability of Cyber-physical Systems and Internet of Things
Safety and Security of Intelligent Vehicles
Dependability Assessment of Complex Systems
Dependability, Privacy, and Security of Clouds
Dependability of Data Centers and Virtual Machines
Dependability and Security of System Operation
Fault-tolerance for Extreme Scale Systems
Trustworthiness of Smart Grids
Dependability and Security of Big Data Systems
Safe Self-Driving Vehicles
Dependability and Security of Robots (including Medical Robots)
Dependability of Blockchain and Financial Technology (Fintech) Systems
Submission Deadline: CLOSED
Notification: April 6, 2020
Camera Ready Materials: April 21, 2020
We solicit contributions in one of two formats:
Position papers can focus on specific dependability/security aspects in practice, either a product or service offered to the market or dependability analysis tools.
Short papers should emphasize dependability/security challenges, practical solutions, tradeoffs, strengths and weaknesses of adopted solutions, lessons learned, and field data and/or measured data.
All materials must be written in English adhering to page limit of 4 pages in IEEE double-column format. Papers must be submitted in their final form.
New for DSN-2020: All accepted Industry Track papers will be invited for a Poster Session. A Poster template will be made available in April. Posters will be exhibited in the conference according to the agenda.
