Call For Papers


The 13th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2018)
August 27 - August 30, 2018, Hamburg, Germany

The 13th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (“ARES – The International Dependability Conference”) will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability. ARES will highlight the various aspects of dependability – with special focus on the crucial linkage between availability, reliability and security.

ARES aims at a full and detailed discussion of the research issues of dependability as an integrative concept that covers amongst others availability, safety, confidentiality, integrity, maintainability and security in the different fields of applications.

ARES will emphasize the interplay between foundations and practical issues of dependability in emerging areas such as e-government, m-government, location-based applications, ubiquitous computing, autonomous computing, chances of grid computing etc. ARES is devoted to the critical examination and research challenges of the various aspects of Dependable Computing and the definition of a future road map.

Selected papers that are accepted by and presented at the ARES Conference will be published, after further revision, in special issues of international journals (e.g. Springer EURASIP Journal on Information Security). The acceptance rate of the ARES 2017 conference was 24% (full papers only). ARES 2017 was published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM (ACM ICPS).

ARES is ranked as B-conference in CORE. Qualis (backed by Brazilian Ministry) ranked ARES and Esorics as leading security conference in Europe (A2)
l papers only).

Submission Deadline: March 16, 2018 23:59 UTC-11
Author Notification: May 30, 2018
Proceedings Version: June 29, 2018
Conference: August 27 - August 30, 2018

ARES 2017 was published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM (ACM ICPS).

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers according the following guidelines: two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 pt fonts and number each page.

For the main conference as well as the workshops submission papers are classified into 3 categorizes representing original, previously unpublished work:
-full paper (10 pages)
-short paper (6 pages)
-workshop paper (8 pages, a maximum of 10 pages is tolerated)

Formating Instructions / template:
Please read the template instructions carefully before submitting a paper, they can be found here (
Papers submitted to ARES 2018 have to use the SigConf template!

Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation and clarity of exposition.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. ARES, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them.

Contact author must provide the following information at the ARES conference system: paper title, authors’ names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.

Double blind review: ARES requires anonymized submissions – please make sure that submitted papers contain no author names or obvious self-references.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference.

The ARES submission system (EasyChair) is available here:

Publishing preprints to Arxiv or other, open repositories is allowed prior to the notification of ARES and does not violate the requirement for novelty. Reviewers will be asked to not search for and ignore preprints that can deanonymize blinded submission.

Important Note:
To avoid accepting papers for ARES 2018 which are not presenting original work your paper will be plagiarism checked by PlagScan Plagarism Check. If you don’t want your paper to be checked automatically please contact us.
