===========Call for Workshop/Special Session Proposals============
The 17th IEEE International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing (DASC 2019), August 5-8 2019, Fukuoka, Japan

DASC 2019 invites Workshops and Special Sessions (SS) to enrich and broaden the research focus of the main conference. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that will not be fully explored during the main event as well as to encourage in-depth discussion of technical and application issues related to dependability, security, and automaticity. This is a unique opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to shape the future research directions and share their original research results and practical development experiences on specific topics related to dependability, security, and automaticity.

The workshop proposal, in PDF or MS Word, should provide the following information, in the following format:

-The title of the Workshop/SS, including both full name and abbreviation.
-The objectives, scope and contributions to the main conference (up to 1 page).
-The short bios of the key organizers and their experience in conference/workshop organization.
-Brief plans for dissemination (e.g., how to advertise the Workshop/SS or possible submissions to special issues of journals), procedures for selecting papers (including the expected number of accepted papers), and the expected number of participants.
-A tentative list of program committee members.
-A tentative website/URL of the proposed Workshop/SS.
-If the proposed Workshop/SS has been previously organized, please also briefly describe its history (e.g., number of submissions and accepted papers, attendance, etc.)

Please email your intellectually stimulating proposals in PDF format as early as possible and not later than Jan 30, 2019 to the Workshop Chairs at Hiroshi Nakamura <nakamurahal.ipc.i.u-tokyo.ac.jp>, Qin Liu <gracelq628 at 126.COM>, and/or Alam Bhuiyan <zakirulalam at gmail.com>. Please use "DASC 2019 Workshop/SS Proposal" as the email subject. Once we receive a proposal, a decision will be made in a week. Accepted proposals should follow strictly the important dates, particularly paper notification and camera-ready dates listed below. 

Important Dates for DASC 2019 Workshops/SS can be as follows. 
Paper Submission Due: May 20, 2019
Author Notification Due: Jun 05, 2019
Camera-ready Papers Due: June 20, 2019

For accepted proposals, organizers are responsible for composing the corresponding Workshop/SS program committees, advertising call for papers, reviewing submissions and planning the final program. DASC  2019 Workshop/SS Chairs will assist the organization and ensure their quality and success. The Congress will provide facilities including the working notes printing, meeting rooms, coffee breaks, lunches, proceedings, etc.

A Workshop/SS paper should be 5-6 pages, following the same Paper Submission Guidelines as the main conference papers. Each paper should be reviewed at least by two reviewers in the corresponding areas. All accepted Workshop/SS papers will be included in the proceedings published by IEEE-CS Conference Publishing Services in IEEE-DL and EI index.

The accepted papers in a cancelled Workshop/SS may be moved to another Workshop/SS, or to the main conference track if they fit in with the quality requirement. The registration requirement and procedure for Workshop/SS papers will be determined by DASC  2019 Organizing Committee, and the registration fee will be paid directly to DASC  2019. The registration fee can be waived for a Workshop/SS main organizer if there are more than 10 accepted papers.

We are looking forward to your exciting proposals.
