Dependability in Sensor, Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications

The focus of the 5th International Conference on Dependability in Sensor, Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications (DependSys 2019) is to create a forum for individuals, academics, practitioners, and organizations, who are developing or procuring sophisticated computer systems on whose dependability of services they need to place great confidence. Future systems need to close the dependability gap in face of challenges in different circumstances. The emphasis will be on differing properties of such services, e.g., continuity, effective performance, real-time responsiveness, ability to overcome data fault/corruption/anomaly, ability to avoid catastrophic failures, prevention of deliberate privacy intrusions, reliability, availability, sustainability, adaptability, heterogeneity, security, safety, and so on. Two outstanding papers will be selected to receive the Best Paper Awards.

PAPER SUBMISSION
All papers in PDF format need to be submitted electronically through the conference website (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dependsys2019) Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not exceed 14 pages in Springer LNCS format (or up to 20 pages with the pages over length charge), including tables, figures, references and appendices. Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation assessed by at least three reviewers from respective research areas.

PAPER PUBLICATION
DependSys 2019 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and indexing services), if the paper is not presented at the conference. All accepted papers will be published by Springer LNCS (EI Indexed). Two outstanding papers will be selected to receive the Best Paper Awards.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS for SYMPOSIUMS, WORKSHOPS and SPECIAL SESSIONS
The DependSys 2019 Workshops provide vibrant opportunities for academic researchers and industry practitioners to share their research experiences, original research achievements and practical development products on specific new challenges and emerging issues. The themes of the DependSys 2019 Workshops should be related to the scopes of the DependSys 2019 main conference, reflecting to advances in all aspects of security, privacy and anonymity of computing systems, communication networks and storage services.
