[DMANET] Workshop, fast abstract, posters in conjunction with IEEE PRDC 2017 in Christchurch, New Zealand

CALL FOR PAPERS for the Workshop, fast abstract, poster and industry track.


The 22nd IEEE Pacific Rim International Symposium on Dependable Computing
(PRDC 2017)
Christchurch, New Zealand
January 22-25, 2017

Selected papers, after further revisions, will be published in several SCI
& EI indexed special issues:
(1) Future Generation Computer Systems - Elsevier (SCI&EI Indexed, Impact
Factor: 2.639) (confirmed)
(2) Elsevier Journal of Network and Computer Applications (SCI&EI Indexed,
Impact Factor: 2.33) (pending)
(3) IEEE Internet of Things Journal (SCI&EI Indexed) (pending)

IEEE PRDC 2017 is the twenty-second event in the series of symposia started
in 1989 that are devoted
to dependable and fault-tolerant computing. PRDC is recognized as the main
event in the Pacific area
that covers many dimensions of dependability and fault tolerance,
encompassing fundamental theoretical
approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial components and
systems. As applications
of computing systems have permeated into all aspects of daily life, the
dependability of computing system
has become increasingly critical. This symposium provides a forum for
countries around the Pacific Rim and
other areas of the world to exchange ideas for improving the dependability
of computing systems.

"Christchurch City is alive with colour, atmosphere and world-class
including the International Antarctic Centre, Orana Park and Willowbank
Wildlife Park.
Christchurch is known internationally as the "Garden City" because of its
spectacular gardens.
Christchurch is also home to a number of excellent cafes, bars and
Many popular destinations such as Kaikoura, Akaroa, Mt Hutt and South
Canterbury are less than two hours drive from Christchurch."
