LADC 2021 - Student Forum 

Call for Student Forum Papers

The LADC Student Forum 2021 is a vibrant and friendly environment where students can present and discuss their work, and exchange ideas and experiences with other students and researchers. Thus, the LADC 2021 Student Forum welcomes students to submit papers describing their potential and ongoing research in the field of dependable and secure computing at any stage, from ideas to results. One of the key goals of the Forum is to provide students with feedback on their preliminary results that might help with their future research directions.

Important Dates

  • Paper submission: September 17th, 2021.
  • Author notification: September 30th, 2021.
  • Camera Ready: October 08th, 2021.

Submission Guidelines

Student papers should be single-authored, no longer than 4 pages in length, and formatted according to the IEEE two-column format for conference proceedings. Students should submit papers as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file through JEMS.
Accepted papers will be published in the supplemental volume of the LADC 2021 proceedings. If accepted, the student is committing to present the paper at the conference.
Comments and questions should be directed to the Student Forum Chairs: Naghmeh Ivaki (From UC, email: naghmeh@dei.uc.py) and Tania Basso (From UNICAMP, email: taniab@unicamp.br).
