RSDA 2013 will feature an exciting keynote by
Nuno Silva - Program Manager at Critical Software, Coimbra, PORTUGAL

"The Role of Data for Safety Critical Systems Development and Validation"


Computer systems are intertwined in many modern human activities and, more
importantly, they play key roles in critical domains. As such, it is critically
important to assess the dependability of computing systems. Data collected under
real workload conditions can provide troves of valuable information about the
stresses the systems encounter and their responses to them. Relevant data
includes text logs and numeric data from application, system, network, and
environmental sensors.

The inherent value of reliability and security data is well recognized by
practitioners, academia, and industry. Effective analysis deepens our
understanding of the systems, ranging from failure causes to the progression of
malicious attacks, and in turn enables stronger designs and better monitoring
Despite of decades of research and methodological advances, data analysis keeps
posing challenging research questions due to ever-increasing data variety and
scale, and increasing diversity of analysis objectives and application domains.

RSDA aims to establish a forum to stimulate scientific research in this area,
including discussion of techniques and tools to manage and analyze reliability
and security data. The workshop will also aim to establish the agenda of future
research activities in the field of reliability and security data analysis, and
foster synergistic collaborations among attendees in those activities.


We seek contributions from academic and industrial organizations addressing
reliability and security aspects of computer systems through data analysis. The
workshop addresses (but is not limited to) the following topics:

- Data production, management and organization
- Data formats and collection
- Data filtering and processing
- Big data analytics
- Data-driven reliability and security evaluation and modeling
- Data-driven monitoring and control
- Improving reliability and security through data analysis
- Generation of synthetic data sets and ground truth
- Benchmarking reliability and security assessment techniques
- Tools for reliability and security data analysis
- Advances and challenges in reliability and security analysis
- Analytical and simulation studies
- Experiences with real-world systems

Relevant application areas include (but are not limited to):

- Distributed, parallel, clustered and grid systems
- Cloud computing infrastructures
- Real-time and embedded systems
- Database and transactional systems
- Operating systems
- Web-based information
- Secure and intrusion tolerant systems


Submissions are solicited in the following categories:

- Regular papers presenting innovative ideas improving the state of the art.

- Experience papers discussing the role of data on existing/production systems,
including some form of analysis and evaluation.

- Extended abstracts proposing disruptive ideas in the field, including some form
of preliminary results.

Submissions should be sent electronically, must conform to the IEEE conference
proceedings style (
and not exceed 8 pages in length. Accepted submissions will be included in the
DSN 2013 proceedings and on IEEE Xplore as workshop papers. Submission implies
the willingness of at least one of the authors to attend the workshop and
present the paper, if accepted. Submission link is available at the workshop
