EDCC 2014 - Call for Fast Abstracts
Tenth European Dependable Computing Conference
Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, May 13-16, 2014

Fast Abstracts are short presentations of work in progress or opinion
pieces (maximum 2 pages in the CPS 8.5"x11" two-column camera-ready
format). Fast Abstracts aim to serve as a rapid and flexible mechanism to:
•    Report on current work that may or may not be complete
•    Introduce new ideas to the community
•    State positions on controversial issues or open problems
•    Receive early feedback on new research ideas or topics

Major Topics include, but are not limited to:
•    Architectures and protocols for dependability and security;
•    Dependability and security in various contexts;
•    Modeling, monitoring, benchmarking, measurement, assessment,
assurance, and evaluation;
•    Adaptive and autonomous dependability and security;
•    Fault and intrusion tolerance;
•    Security, privacy, and safety policies;
•    Critical infrastructure protection and survivability;
•    Safety- and mission-critical systems;
•    Time-critical systems;
•    Social and psychological factors;
•    Formal methods for dependability and security;
•    Software engineering for dependability and security.

Contributions from academia and industry are welcome. Participants in this
track will present a short talk of 8-10 minutes and publish a two-page
abstract in the Computing Research Repository (CoRR).

Fast Abstracts will not be refereed. Instead, the Fast Abstracts Chair and
the Conference Program Chair will lightly screen the submissions. The
criteria for acceptance will be: i) relevance and interest to the community,
and ii) arrival time. Therefore, authors are encouraged to send their
submission well in advance before the final deadline. We will accept as
many Fast Abstracts as possible, but the number is limited by the available
presentation time at the conference. By submitting a Fast Abstract, you are
committing yourself or one of your colleagues to present the work at the

All submissions should be made electronically, by e-mail, to the Fast
Abstracts chair. A Fast Abstract is limited to 2 pages and must be submitted
in PDF format in its final form, ready to be printed. The authors are
required to follow the CPS 8.5"x11" two-column camera-ready format (see
http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting for templates and
formatting details).

Please use the following naming convention for your submission:
FA_<Auth>_<Inst>.pdf where <Auth> is the first author's last name, and
<Inst> is an abbreviation of the first author's institution.

Important Dates:
- Submission deadline: March 28th, 2014
- Acceptance notification: April 4th, 2014

Questions or comments about the Fast Abstracts should be directed to the
Fast Abstracts Chair: Peter Puschner, Vienna University of Technology,

All submissions will be confirmed via return e-mail. If you do not receive
a confirmation within 48 hours after the submission, please contact the
Fast Abstracts Chair.
