DASC 2018 invites Workshops and Special Sessions (SS) to enrich and broaden the research focus of the main conference. The purpose is to provide a comprehensive forum on topics that will not be fully explored during the main event as well as to encourage in-depth discussion of technical and application issues related to dependability, security, and automaticity. This is a unique opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to shape the future research directions and share their original research results and practical development experiences on specific topics related to dependability, security, and automaticity.
The proposals should contain the following information:
Please email your intellectually stimulating proposals in PDF format as early as possible and not later than February 10, 2018 to the Workshop Chairs at Kostas Lambrinoudakis, Al-Sakib Khan Pathan, Tatsuhiro Tsuchiya, and/or Alam Bhuiyan. Please use DASC 2018 Workshop/SS Proposal as the email subject. Once we receive a proposal, a decision will be made in a week. Accepted proposals should follow strictly the important dates, particularly paper notification and camera-ready dates listed below.

For accepted proposals, organizers are responsible for composing the corresponding Workshop/SS program committees, advertising call for papers, reviewing submissions and planning the final program. DASC 2018 Workshop/SS Chairs will assist the organization and ensure their quality and success. The Congress will provide facilities including the working notes printing, meeting rooms, coffee breaks, lunches, proceedings, etc.
A Workshop/SS paper should be 5-6 pages, following the same Paper Submission Guidelines as the main conference papers. Each paper should be reviewed at least by two reviewers in the corresponding areas. All accepted Workshop/SS papers will be included in the proceedings published by IEEE-CS Conference Publishing Services in IEEE-DL and EI index.
The accepted papers in a cancelled Workshop/SS may be moved to another Workshop/SS, or to the main conference track if they fit in with the quality requirement. The registration requirement and procedure for Workshop/SS papers will be determined by DASC 2018 Organizing Committee, and the registration fee will be paid directly to DASC 2018. The registration fee can be waived for a Workshop/SSís main organizer if there are more than 10 accepted papers.
We are looking forward to your exciting proposals.
