The International Workshop on Dependable Software and Applications (DSA 2015) will be held at COMPSAC 2015. It will provide researchers and practitioners with a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences, understanding of the problems, promising solutions to the problems, for dependable software and applications.


Topics of interest, but not limited to:

  • Architecture and design for dependable software
  • Big data and cloud computing
  • Components, services, and middleware
  • Embedded and real-time software
  • Empirical software engineering
  • Formal methods and testing
  • Human and social factors for dependable software
  • Knowledge based software engineering
  • Mobile, ubiquitous, and pervasive software
  • Safety-critical systems
  • Safety, security, and reliability
  • Software evolution and maintenance


Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers as well as industrial practice papers. Simultaneous submissions to other publications and conferences are not permitted.

The length of a camera ready paper will be limited to 6 pages (IEEE Proceedings style) with up to 2 additional pages (with charges for each additional page) printed on 10-12 point fonts.

Authors must follow IEEE CS Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare papers.
