RSDA 2016 : The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Reliability and Security Data Analysis (co-located with DSN 2016)
Call For Papers
The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Reliability and Security Data Analysis (RSDA 2016) is co-located with the 46th Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2016) being held in June 28 - July 1, 2016, Toulouse, FRANCE.
RSDA is rapidly emerging as a forum to present scientific research, measurements, and practical experience on data-driven dependability and security. The PC features a balanced mix of academic and industry experts, working in cutting-edge research areas and application domains.
The workshop follows its past successful editions held at ISSRE (RSDA 2014) and DSN (RSDA 2013).
* KEYNOTE SPEAKER *
Hervé Debar, Head of the Télécommunication Networks and Services Department,
Title: "Towards a quantitative approach for threat mitigation and response"
* HIGHLIGHTS *
- RSDA 2016 is co-located with the top dependability conference and will feature exciting Keynote and presentations;
- The papers accepted at RSDA 2016 will be included in the DSN Supplemental Proceedings as well as in the DSN-W volume on IEEE Xplore.
*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***
Computer systems are the basis for daily human activities and, more importantly, they play a key role in a variety of critical domains. Assessing dependability properties of computer systems is today an important concern for engineers and practitioners.
The analysis of textual/numeric data and log files produced under real workload conditions by applications, systems, and networks, intrusion detection systems, monitors and issue-trackers plays a key role for dependability assessment. Data analysis is crucial in a variety of engineering tasks, such as measuring availability and reliability of a system, characterizing failures, gaining insights into the progression of security attacks, designing mitigation means and countermeasures.
Academia and industry widely recognize the inherent potential of reliability and security data analysis for assessing dependability of computer systems and operational networks, and improving the engineering process. Data analysis in these specific areas poses many challenging research questions due to the heterogeneity, volume and velocity of the collected data, the lack of systematic end-to-end analysis procedures, the increasing diversity of analysis objectives and emerging application domains in critical areas.
RSDA 2016 aims to concentrate ideas and contributions from academic and industrial organizations addressing reliability and security of computer systems through data analysis. RSDA aims to gather high-quality papers on data-driven methodologies, measurements from production systems, and analysis of large datasets.
