Just days remain to submit your abstract if you wish to be considered to present at DSN 2021 in Taiwan next year, with submissions due by 4 December 2020.

The 51st edition of the Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks, DSN 2021 is the most prestigious international forum for presenting advanced and innovative research results, problem solutions, practices, insights on new challenges in the field of dependable computing and security. The whole spectrum of IT systems and application areas with stringent relevant dependability and security concerns are of interest to DSN.

Our society is increasingly dependent on the correct functioning of computer systems, edge devices and networks for systems and services we use every day, such as aviation, energy production & power grids, intelligent/autonomous vehicles, medical devices & electronic health records, and many others. DSN 2021 is devoted to the mission of ensuring that the computing systems and networks on which society relies are dependable and secure.

One of the longest running IEEE conferences, DSN has pioneered the fusion between dependability and security research under a common body of knowledge, understanding the need to simultaneously fight against accidental faults, intentional cyber-attacks, design errors and unexpected operating conditions. Its distinctive approach to both accidental and malicious faults makes DSN the most prestigious international forum for presenting research furthering robustness and resilience of today’s wide spectrum of computing systems and networks.

DSN 2021 will be held in Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan, from 21-14 June, 2021. Taipei is Taiwan’s largest city as well as its economic, political, and cultural centre. It is a modern cosmopolitan metropolis with a lively and diversified face, filled with exuberance. From the world’s tallest building (2004-2010) to the biggest collection of Chinese art, Taipei invites you into a world of fascinating contrasts – a mix of the modern and traditional, with a generous dash of energy and friendly smiles to make this one of your most memorable trips to Asia.

All aspects of dependable and secure systems and networks are within the scope of DSN, including innovative architectures, protocols and algorithms, models for performance and dependability evaluation, as well as, experimentation and assessment of dependable and secure systems and networks. Authors are invited to submit original papers on research and practice of creating, validating, deploying, and maintaining dependable and secure systems and networks.

The conference program will include plenary talks, regular papers, experience reports, an industrial track, a student forum and a fast abstract track, together with state-of-the-art workshops and tutorials.
