IEEE DASC 2017 will be held 
in November 6-10, 2017 
in Orlando, Florida, USA, 
co-located with CyberSciTech 2017, IEEE DataCom 2017 and IEEE PiCom
2017 (the event location is very close to the Walt Disney World, which
is in walking distance).

IEEE DASC 2017 aims to bring together computer scientists, industrial
engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange experimental and
theoretical results, novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case
studies, and trend-setting ideas in the areas of dependability,
security, trust and/or autonomic computing systems.

--------------SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION INFORMATION----------------------------

Papers should be prepared in IEEE CS Proceedings format and submitted
via DASC 2017 website:

- Research paper (8 pages) should explore a specific technology
  problem and propose a complete solution to it, with experimental
- Demo/Poster papers (2~4 pages) must describe working systems and be within the  scope of DASC and should be submitted to the Poster/Demo Chair.
- Workshop and Special Session papers need to be submitted to the corresponding   workshops and special sessions.

* Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE conference
  proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press (EI indexed).

* At least one of the authors of any accepted paper is required to
  register and present the paper at the conference.

* Extended versions of selected excellent papers will be considered
  for fast-track publication in special issues of prestige journals
  (SCI/EI indexed).
