Call for Contributions

Call For Papers Poster(PDF)

The main track at LADC 2016 is soliciting original, unpublished research papers in three categories: (1) full research (regular) papers,  (2) practical experience reports and (3) short papers. Papers must be written in English and these will be assessed with criteria appropriate to each category. LADC looks for works exploring new territory, continuing a significant research, or reflecting on practical experience. While full research manuscripts should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with extensive results, practical experience reports are expected to provide an in-depth exposition of practitioner experience and empirical studies.

In its 7th Edition, the LADC proceedings will be published and indexed by IEEE (confirmed). Also, an extended version of selected papers will be published in a special issue of "The Journal of Brazilian Computer Society" (confirmed). A Best Paper Award is also a tradition in LADC and will be selected among the submitted works.

Instructions to Contributors:

The conference is inviting submissions to its different tracks in the following categories:

1.Regular papers (up to 10 pages) solicited on theory, techniques, systems, and tools for the design, validation, operation and evaluation of dependable and secure computing systems, covering any fault model, from traditional hardware and software faults to accidental and malicious human interactions.

2.Practical experience reports (up to 6 pages) dedicated to dependability in practice: industrial applications, experience in introducing dependability in industry, use of new or mature dependability approaches to new challenging problems or domains, etc.

3.Short papers (3-4 pages) describing preliminary research work (position papers) or a prototype/tool description, outlining the design or implementation of a software tool, or the prototyping of an operational system.

Submissions must adhere to the IEEE Computer Society camera-ready 8.5″x11″ two-column format. This format includes 10 point font on 12 point spacing for body text, and other details described in the author guidelines below. Pages must be numbered. The templates are reproduced below for your convenience, and further details can be found here.

Please use either this Word Template or this LaTeX package (last update: Abril 12 2016). Make sure that you use US letter page format.

Each paper must be submitted as a single Portable Document Format (PDF) file. We recommend that the authors embeded fonts where possible to improve portability. We also strongly recommend you print the file and review it for integrity (fonts, symbols, equations etc.) before submitting it. A defective printing of your paper can undermine its chance of success.

Please be sure to use the template’s conference mode. See template documentation for details.
