Following the call for workshops for DSN 2016, five workshops have been selected.

The papers must be written in English, in the IEEE format (IEEE double-column format). Papers must be submitted in their final form. All accepted papers will be published in the DSN supplemental volume and made available in IEEE Xplore. They will be presented in dedicated sessions. For paper length, refer to the each workshop website.

DISN 2016: The 2nd International Workshop on Dependability Issues on SDN and NFV
Web site

Program available

DISN Chairs:
Matti Hiltunen (hiltunen [at], AT&T Research, US 
Robert Soule (robert.soule [at], University of Lugano, CH 
Elias P. Duarte Jr. (elias [at], Federal University of Parana, BR

Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are two technologies that have already had a deep impact on computer and telecommunication networks. SDN and NVF introduce numerous dependability challenges. In terms of reliability, the challenges range from the design of reliable new SDN and NFV technologies to the adaptation of classical network functions to these technologies. The effective, dependable deployment of the virtual network on the physical substrate is particularly important. In terms of security, the challenges are enormous, as SDN and NFV are meant to be the very fabric of both the Internet and private networks. Threats, privacy concerns, authentication issues, and isolation - defining a truly secure virtualized network requires work on multiple fronts. 

RADIANCE 2016: The 2nd International Workshop on Recent Advances in the DependabIlity AssessmeNt of Complex systEms
Web Site

Program available

Ariadne Carvalho (ariadne [at], UNICAMP, BR
Nuno Antunes (nmsa [at], University of Coimbra, PT
Andrea Ceccarelli (andrea.ceccarelli [at], University of Florence, IT
András Zentai, Prolan, HU

The RADIANCE workshop aims to discuss novel dependability assessment approaches for complex systems and to promote their adoption in real-world systems through industrial and academic research. The goal is to promote and foster discussion on novel ideas, constituting a forum where researchers can share both real problems and innovative solutions for the assessment of complex systems.

ReSA4CI 2016: The 3rd International Workshop on Reliability and Security Aspects for Critical Infrastructure
Web site

Program available

ReSA4CI Chairs:
Silvia Bonomi (bonomi [at], University of Rome La Sapienza, IT
Ilaria Matteucci (ilaria.matteucci [at], IIT-CNR, IT

The ReSA4CI workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers and engineers in academia and industry to foster an exchange of research results, experiences, and products in the area of reliable, dependable and secure computing for critical systems protection from both a theoretical and practical perspective. Its ultimate goal is to envision new trends and ideas about aspects of designing, implementing, and evaluating reliable and secure solutions for the next generation critical infrastructures. Critical Infrastructures present several challenges in the fields of distributed systems, dependability and security methods and approaches crucial for improving trustworthiness on ICT facilities.

RSDA 2016: The 3rd International Workshop on Reliability and Security Data Analysis
Web site

Program available

RSDA Chairs:
Antonio Pecchia (antonio.pecchia [at], Federico II University of Naples, IT
Olivier Thonnard (olivier.thonnard [at], Amadeus IT Group, FR

RSDA aims to concentrate ideas and contributions from academic and industrial organizations addressing reliability and security of computer systems through data analysis. Data analysis is crucial in a variety of engineering tasks, such as measuring availability and reliability of a system, characterizing failures, gaining insights into the progression of security attacks, designing mitigation means and countermeasures. RSDA aims to gather papers on data-driven methodologies, measurements from production systems and analysis of large datasets, and to create concrete synergies among researchers and practitioners from different research communities.

SSIV 2016: The 2nd International Workshop on Safety and Security of Intelligent Vehicles
Web site

Program available

SSIV Chairs:
João Carlos Cunha (jcunha [at], ISEC, PT
Kalinka Branco (kalinka [at], University São Paulo, BR
António Casimiro (casim [at], University of Lisboa, PT
Urbano Nunes (urbano [at], University of Coimbra, PT

Over the last years, aerial and ground vehicles as well as mobile robot systems have been receiving an increased number of electronic components, connected through wireless networks and running embedded software. This strong integration between dedicated computing devices, the physical environment and networking, composes a Cyber-Physical System (CPS). CPS have thus become part of common vehicles, accessible to everyone, such as automobiles or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Furthermore, as processing power increases and software becomes more sophisticated, these vehicles gain the ability to perform complex operations, becoming more autonomous, efficient, adaptable, comfortable, safe and usable. These are known as Intelligent Vehicles (IV). After the very successful initial edition of this workshop, clearly showing the interest of the community on discussions about the challenges and innovative solutions regarding Intelligent Vehicles, the workshop will keep the same focus, namely exploring the challenges and interdependencies between security, real-time, safety and certification, which emerge when introducing networked, autonomous and cooperative functionalities.
