Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, LADC'2021 will be an online-only event and will be held from November 22 to 26. Just like in 2019, LADC will be co-located with the XI Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering (SBESC).
Prospective authors are invited to submit original research papers for presentation at the symposium in two categories: (1) full research (regular) papers, and (2) practical experience reports. Papers will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category. LADC looks for works exploring new territory, continuing significant research, or reflecting on practical experience. While full research manuscripts should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with extensive results, practical experience reports are expected to provide an in-depth exposition of practitioner experience and empirical studies.
All aspects of dependable and secure systems and networks are within the scope of LADC, including fault-tolerant architectures, protocols, and algorithms, models for performance and dependability evaluation, as well as, experimentation and assessment of dependable and secure systems and networks. Authors are invited to submit original papers on research and practice of creating, validating, deploying, and maintaining dependable and secure systems and networks.
- Fault-tolerant hardware architectures, multi-core systems, virtualization, nanoscale computers, hardware dependability assessment.
- Frameworks and software architectures for dependability, runtime monitoring, adaptation, model-driven dependability engineering, testing, verification & validation, software certification.
- Dependability of networks (LAN, WAN, mobile, ad-hoc, sensor networks, protocols, SDN).
- Dependability of 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.
- Incidents & accidents, risk perception and analysis, safety-critical applications and systems.
- Critical infrastructure protection.
- Dependability and security modeling, measurement and benchmarking.
- Dependability of maintenance, tuning performance and availability, security configuration.
The proceedings of LADC 2020 will be published and indexed by IEEE (tentative). Also, an extended version of selected papers will be published in a special issue of "The Journal of Brazilian Computer Society" (confirmed). A Best Paper Award is also a tradition in LADC and will be selected among the submitted works.
Papers must be written in English. Research Papers and Practical Experience Reports should be respectively no longer than 10 pages and 6 pages, respectively, following the IEEE two-column format for conference proceedings. The category of the paper should be clearly marked on the first page. Authors are requested to first register their submissions and then submit their manuscripts in PDF format at the JEMS webpage. JEMS limits to a maximum of 8 authors per paper. Including more than 8 authors is allowed, but must be indicated to the TPC chairs after acceptance notification.
