The 6th IEEE International Conference on Dependability in Snsor, Cloud, and Big Data Systems and Applications (DependSys 2020), 14-16 December 2020, Fiji
conference website address: http://cse.stfx.ca/~dependsys/2020/index.html
IEEE DependSys 2020 conference is the 6th event in the series of conferences which offers a timely venue for bringing together new ideas, techniques, and solutions for dependability and its issues in sensor, cloud, and big data systems and applications. As we are deep into the Information Age, huge amounts of data are generated every day from sensors, individual archives, social networks, Internet of Things, enterprises and Internet in various scales and format which will pose a major challenge to the dependability of our designed systems. As these systems often tend to become inert, fragile, and vulnerable after a period of running. Effectively improving the dependability of sensor, cloud, big data systems and applications has become increasingly critical.
This conference provides a forum for individuals, academics, practitioners, and organizations who are developing or procuring sophisticated computer systems on whose dependability of services they need to place great confidence. Future systems need to close the dependability gap in face of challenges in different circumstances. The emphasis will be on differing properties of such services, e.g., continuity, effective performance, real-time responsiveness, ability to overcome data fault, corruption, anomaly, ability to avoid catastrophic failures, prevention of deliberate privacy intrusions, reliability, availability, sustainability, adaptability, heterogeneity, security, safety, and so on.
IEEE DependSys 2020 is sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing (TCSC). All accepted papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore and Engineering Index (EI). Best Paper Awards will be presented to high quality papers. Extended versions of selected papers will appear in SCIE-indexed international journals, such as Information Fusion (IF: 10.716), IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics (IF: 7.377), Future Generation Computer Systems (IF: 5.768), Journal of Cloud Computing (IF: 2.14), Software: Practice and Experience (IF: 1.931), MDPI Electronics (IF: 1.764) and IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatics Sinica.
