The 21st IEEE Pacific Rim International Symposium on Dependable Computing (PRDC 2015)

Zhangjiajie, China, November 18-20, 2015

Call for Industry Contributions

The Industry Track provides a forum for researchers and practitioners from 
industry to present and debate R&D challenges, practical solutions, 
demonstration, case studies, and discuss reliability issues.
IEEE PRDC 2015 is the twenty-first 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 theoretical 
basics, 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 and control systems 
has become increasingly critical. This Industry Track provides a forum for 
researchers and practitioners from industry of countries around the Pacific 
Rim, but also other areas of the world to exchange ideas for improving the 
dependability of computing and control systems.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
1.  Software and hardware reliability, testing, verification, and validation
2.  Dependability measurement, modeling, evaluation, and tools
3.  Self-healing, self-protecting, and fault-tolerant systems
4.  Software aging and rejuvenation
5.  Safety-critical systems and software
6.  Architecture and system design for dependability
7.  Fault-tolerant algorithms and protocols
8.  Reliability in cloud computing, Internet, and web systems and applications
9.  Cloud and Internet Information security
10. Dependability issues in computer networks and communications
11. Dependability issues in distributed and parallel systems
12. Dependability issues in real-time systems, database, and transaction 
    processing Systems
13. Dependability issues in autonomic computing
14. Dependability issues in aerospace and embedded systems
15. Dependability issues in cyber-physical systems
16. Dependability issues in socio-technical systems

Submission Information:
Industry track submissions should be a maximum of 6 pages using standard 
two-column IEEE format. Templates can be downloaded from:
Industry Track manuscripts should include a 150-word abstract, five keywords, 
authors' names and affiliations, and a line specifying that the submission is 
an Industry Track Paper. The full mailing address, phone, fax, and email address 
of the corresponding author should be specified.
All submissions must be made electronically (in PDF format) on the submission 
web site: 
Submissions will be reviewed by the Industry Track program committee and 
evaluated for their relevance to PRDC, the probably interest to the community, 
and their potential for stimulating further research. Submission of a 
contribution to the track indicates agreement to have one author present the 
work, if accepted, at the conference.

Important Dates:
- Paper Submission Deadline:  July 22, 2015 (11:59 PM Beijing Time)
- Author Notification:        August 15, 2015
- Camera-ready Papers Due:    September 15, 2015
- Conference Dates:           November 18-20, 2015
