                     CALL FOR PAPERS - PRDC 2020
  The 25th Pacific Rim International Symposium on Dependable Computing

                 December 1-4, 2020, Perth, Australia

                Paper Submission Deadline: 18 July 2020



PRDC 2020 is the twenty-fifth 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 dependabil-
ity of computing systems has become increasingly critical. This sympo-
sium 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.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

・Software and hardware reliability, testing, verification, and
・Dependability measurement, modeling, evaluation, and tools
・Self-healing, self-protecting, and fault-tolerant systems
・Software aging and rejuvenation
・Safety-critical systems and software
・Architecture and system design for dependability
・Fault-tolerant algorithms and protocols
・Reliability in cloud computing, Internet, and web systems and
・Cloud computing security and privacy
・Software defined networks architectures and protocols
・Internet of things architectures, protocols, security and privacy
・Dependability issues in artificial intelligence and its
・Dependability issues in computer networks and communications
・Dependability issues in high performance computing
・Dependability issues in real-time systems
・Dependability issues in storage and databases systems
・Dependability issues in cyber-physical systems
・Dependability issues in socio-technical systems
・Dependability and security in machine learning systems
・Blockchain and smart contracts

Submission and Publication Information

Manuscripts should be submitted in the following two categories:
Regular Papers and Practical Experience Reports.
Regular Papers should describe original research (not submitted or
published elsewhere) and be not more than 10 pages using IEEE Computer
Society camera-ready 8.5"x11" two-column format. Practical Experience
Reports (max 6 pages using IEEE format guidelines) should describe an
experience or a case study, such as the design and deployment of a
system or actual failure and recovery field data.

All submissions must be made electronically (in PDF format) on the
submission website:


Please note that all submissions will undergo a double-blind review.
Please ensure that you have removed any references that could lead to
identifying the authors of the paper. Failure to do so may result in
rejection of the paper regardless of the paper contributions. Papers
will be reviewed internationally and selected based on their original-
ity, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.

All accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press
(EI Indexed). One outstanding paper will be selected to receive the
Best Paper Award, and one outstanding paper first authored by a stude-
nt will receive the Best Student Paper Award.
