LADC 2021 - Fast Abstract

Fast Abstracts are lightly-reviewed 2-page manuscripts in IEEE format describing unpublished, in-progress, novel work, opinions or ideas that address any issue relevant to dependability. Major topics of interest can be found in the LADC Call for Papers. Fast Abstracts are a good opportunity for authors to share preliminary results, speculate on new directions to open problems or to present challenging or controversial issues.

To promote the discussion even with a remote conference, we plan to organize the session as a dynamic sequence of 5-mins slots to present each accepted work. At the end of the session, we will award the i) most challenging work and ii) most attractive presentation and provide the two presenters with a certificate.

Submission deadline for Fast Abstracts is purposedly set after Notification deadline of the main track of the conference. This allows resubmitting a rejected paper as a Fast Abstract, to present it in a way other than a full research paper, which may better suit your work.

Important Dates

  • Paper submission: Sep 27, 2021.
  • Author notification: Oct 08, 2021.
  • Camera Ready: Oct 13, 2021.

Submission Guidelines

Academics and industrial practitioners are invited to submit fast abstracts limited to two pages (IEEE double-column format). Accepted papers will be published in the supplemental volume of the LADC 2021 proceedings published by SBC. If accepted, the corresponding author is committing to present the paper at the conference.

Papers must be submitted via JEMS.

Comments and questions should be directed to the Fast Abstracts Chair: Tommaso Zoppi (UNIFI) (Email: tommaso.zoppi at unifi.it) | Anubis Rossetto (IFSUL) (Email: anubisrossetto at gmail.com)
