The 43rd Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks

24-27th June 2013, Budapest

Invitation from the General Chair

The Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN) is the most prestigious international forum for presenting research results in the field of dependability and security.

The rapidly expanding Information Technologies (IT) increasingly form the basis of all imaginable and novel emergent application paradigms, with the technical aspects being as important as the growing socio-economical and societal values.

Dependability and security aspects are essential, as both the society and individuals rely more and more on the services delivered by IT. Coping with attacks and unintentional faults in a rapidly evolving technological and application environment generates new challenges for the dependability and security community thus driving DSN.

DSN is now in its fifth decade of evolution and has a sustained tradition to address both conceptual and applied research results related to actual questions posed by the rapid IT evolution. This flagship dependability conference addresses the entire spectrum of scientific and technological challenges which are indispensable to  solve for partaking the benefits of modern IT.

DSN 2013 aims at offering a value focused program including plenary talks, regular papers, experience reports, panels, student forum, fast abstracts, demonstrations of tools and technologies, debate sessions, together with state-of-the-art workshops and tutorials. The tradition of offering a high quality program assumes the contribution of the leading researchers and we look forward to your participation!

The Conference

DSN 2013 is the 43rd Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN). It will be held on the 24-27th June 2013 in Budapest, Hungary. DSN was formed from the combination of two established conferences — the International Symposium on Fault-Tolerant Computing (FTCS) sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society, and the Working Conference on Dependable Computing for Critical Applications (DCCA) sponsored by IFIP WG 10.4 — this inclusive conference is designed to capture the wide range of activities in this increasingly important technical area.
