DSN 2010 will feature a number of coordinated tracks, including: The
Dependable Computing and Communication Symposium (DCCS), the Performance and
Dependability Symposium (PDS), several workshops, tutorials, a student forum,
and fast abstract sessions. We invite you to contribute to this premier
conference by submitting to any of the categories below.
The below are page limits for the final printed papers.
- Regular Papers: Present recent research results with an archival
quality conference publication. (10 printed pages)
- Practical Experience Reports: Provide an in-depth description of
practitioner experience or a case study (6 printed pages)
- Demonstrations: Describe and demonstrate a piece of software,
system, or tool
- Panels: Discuss and debate topics of high interest to the
- Workshops: Provide opportunities for focused discussion on selected
topics in a group setting. (Non-archival papers; see individual workshop calls
- Tutorials: Provide short courses on dependability techniques and
- Fast Abstracts: Present a very brief abstract on a topic of interest
(2 printed pages)
- Student Forum: For PhD students only mid-length presentations
about works-in-progress (3 printed pages)
Topics of interest for DSN include, but are not limited to:
Architectures for Dependable, Secure and Resilient Computer Systems; Dependability Benchmarking, Modeling and
Prediction; Dependability of High-Speed Networks and Protocols; Dependability and security of hardware technologies
(VLSI, Systems and networks on chip, nanoarchitectures, etc.); E-Commerce Dependability; Fault-Tolerance in Transaction
Processing Systems, Distributed Systems, Embedded and Real-Time Systems, Mobile Systems and Multimedia Systems;
Internet Dependability and Quality of Service; Adaptable, Survivable and Intrusion-Tolerant Systems; Safety-Critical
Systems and Critical Infrastructures; SoftwareTesting, Validation and Verification; Software Reliability; Performance and
Dependability Assessment by means of Measurement, Analysis and Simulation Techniques,Tools and Results; Dependability
and Security of Sensor, Wireless, and Ad-hoc Networks; Failure, Vulnerability and Threat Analysis and Assessment.
Please note that in all cases one of the paper authors must attend DSN to
present the paper personally. Substitute presenters are not permitted.

There are two tracks for regular papers, practical experience reports,
demonstrations, and panels: DCCS and PDS. Below is a summary of the main
differences between these two tracks.
- PDS: The Performance and Dependability Symposium (PDS) mainly
emphasizes research and practice on all aspects of evaluation of
dependable systems. This spans analytical, simulation, and measurement
techniques for evaluating performance, dependability, and security assessment
in computer and communication systems.
More details are available at the PDS Call For Papers
- DCCS: The Dependable Computing and Communications Symposium (DCCS)
mainly emphasizes research and practice on all aspects of design and
validation of system level dependability and security. This spans
system lifecycle phases including architecture, design,
verification/validation, and deployment.
