LADC 2021 - Industrial Track

Call for Papers: Industry Track @ LADC 2021

The LADC Industry Track brings participants together from academia and industry at a venue that highlights practical and real-world studies concerning dependable and secure computing.

This track aims to foster mutually beneficial connections between those engaged in scientific research and practitioners to exchange experiences enhancing their network, providing crucial input into future research directions and allow others to learn from successes and failures on industry-driven dependable computing topics.

Of particular interest is the application of novel design, development, verification and validation practices in the diverse domain where critical systems and applications are used, including the presentation of innovative methodologies and tools, implementations, techniques, novel applications and relevant issues on dependability. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • New and unsolved research challenges derived from practical problems
  • Success stories reporting benefits and lessons learned
  • Failure stories reporting obstacles and lessons learned
  • State-of-the-practice and experience reports with empirical evidence
  • Application reports about methods, techniques, and tools
  • Current challenges in industrial applications concerning dependable and secure computing

Contribution submissions

We invite submissions of industry-driven contributions, describing innovative approaches, state-of-the-art practice and experience reports, survey reports from real-world projects and industrial experiences, and evidence-based identification of unsolved research challenges associated to all the phases of critical systems lifecycle, from the requirements definition to decommissioning. Each submission should describe the addressed problem, the motivation, the used approach, the current state of the project, an evaluation of the benefits or lessons learned, as well as future developments.

We welcome submissions that are mainly driven by industrial practitioners, which will be evaluated according to the following criteria: relevance to LADC audience, improvement on the state-of-the-practice or state-of-knowledge, results generality, overall quality of the manuscript, and appropriate comparison to the related work.

Accepted contributions will be published by SBC's SOL digital library. Authors of accepted papers will be requested to present the paper at the conference.

Submission Guidelines

Contributions must be written in English and must be no longer than 4 pages, following the IEEE two-column format for conference proceedings. Authors are requested to first register their submissions and then submit their manuscripts in PDF format to the JEMS webpage https://submissoes.sbc.org.br/home.cgi?c=3912 .
