The 5th International Conference on Dependability in Sensor, Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications (DependSys 2019)
November 12-15, 2019, Guangzhou, China


DependSys 2019 calls for workshop proposals, which will complement the research topics of the Dependability in Sensor, Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications.

A workshop refers to an academic event in conjunction with DependSys 2019, which can be a half-day or full-day symposium or workshop, or only a special session for two hours of discussion on a hot research topic. Each workshop will be expected to accept at least 6 papers.

The DependSys 2019 Workshops provide vibrant opportunities for academic researchers and industry practitioners to share their research experiences, original research achievements and practical development products on specific new challenges and emerging issues. The themes of the DependSys 2019 Workshops should be related to the scopes of the DependSys 2019 main conference, reflecting to advances in all aspects of security, privacy and anonymity of computing systems, communication networks and storage services. For submission guidelines see http://www.dependsys.org/DependSys2019/

The organizers of the DependSys 2019 Workshops shall have responsibility of soliciting call for papers, forming program committee on reviewing and selection of papers as well as planning workshop program. The registration fees for workshops will be determined by and paid to the main conference other than the workshops. The main conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, meeting rooms, coffee breaks, lunches, dinners, proceedings, etc
The proceedings of the DependSys 2019 Workshops will be published by Springer LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) in DependSys 2019 Workshops Proceedings (indexed by EI Compendex).

Prospective Workshop Organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to DependSys 2019 Workshop Chairs via email:
- Title of the workshop (Full name and Abbreviation)
- Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference (up to 1 page)
- Short bio of the key organizers and their experience on conference/workshop organization
- Procedures for selecting papers, plans for advertising call for papers, and intentions for organizing journal special issues if possible
- The expected number of participants
- A tentative list of program committee members
- The workshop website URL address if available

Approved workshops should strictly follow the Important Dates of the main conference, particularly the Author Notification Date and the Camera-ready Paper Due Date. The submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. But, a workshop should have sufficient time, say 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 2 or 3 peer reviews.
In order to encourage the workshop organisors, the main conference will also provide the following benefits to the workshop organisors: (1) If a workshop will have at least 10 full registrations for accepted papers (excluding those borderline papers transferred from the main conference), then one of the main organisors can choose either to waive one of his or her papers for registrations or to get the travel grant to attend the conference. (2) If a workshop will have at least 20 full registrations for accepted papers (excluding those borderline papers transferred from the main conference), then the main organisors can also invite one keynote speaker for the workshop and the conference will provide free registration and travel grant for the keynote speaker.

Please email your workshop proposals in PDF format by March 15, 2019 to: the DependSys 2019 workshop co-chairs, Debiao He (hedebiao at 163.com), Kevin I-Kai Wang (kevin.wang at auckland.ac.nz) and Syed Hassan ahmed (sh.ahmed at ieee.org).
