Call for Papers ARES 2021 (txt, pdf)


The 2021 ARES & CD-MAKE Organization is closely monitoring the ongoing
COVID-19 situation. The safety and well-being of all conference
participants is our top priority. After studying and evaluating the
announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national
departments, we are prepared to convert ARES & CD-MAKE 2021 into an
all-digital conference experience if needed. The dates of the
conference would remain the same.  ARES Conference

The 16th 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
