Student Forum — Call for Contributions
The Student Forum at DSN provides an opportunity for students working in the area of dependable and secure computing to present and discuss their research objectives, approaches, and preliminary results. The Forum offers a place for the presentation and discussion of emerging research ideas. One of the main purposes of the Forum is to provide feedback to the students on their preliminary results that might help with their future research directions.

The selected student research papers will be presented at the Student Forum sessions, which will be attended by both fellow students and experienced researchers working in the field of dependable and secure computing, encouraging active discussion. Each paper will be allocated approximately 20 minutes for presentation and discussion.

The selected student research papers will be published in the DSN-2013 supplementary volume.

Questions or comments about the Student Forum should be directed to:

Submission Guidelines

Student research papers should have a student as the single author. The paper should describe the topic, preliminary results, and future direction of the student’s on-going research. The student must commit to present the paper at the conference.

Papers submitted to the Forum should be at most 4 pages in length and must be formatted using standard two-column IEEE format.

Submit papers in PDF format, to
