ARES CONFERENCE

************

The 19th International Conference on 
Availability, Reliability and Security 
("ARES - The International Dependability Conference") 
will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability.

ARES...

...highlights the various aspects of dependability - with special
focus on the crucial linkage between availability, reliability and
security.

...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.

...emphasizes 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.

...is devoted to the critical examination and research challenges of
the various aspects of Dependable Computing and the definition of a
future road map.

The acceptance rate of the ARES 2023 conference was 20,8% (full papers

SUBMISSION

************

ARES 2023 was published by the International Conference Proceedings
Series published by ACM (ACM ICPS). The same is planned this year (to
be confirmed).

The ARES submission system (EasyChair) is available here:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ares2024.

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers
according the following guidelines:

For the main conference as well as the workshops, submission papers
are classified into 4 categories representing original, previously
unpublished work:

- full paper (10 pages, plus up to 2 pages of references)
- short paper (6 pages, plus up to 1 page of references)
- systematization of Knowledge (SoK) paper (10 pages, plus up to 2
  pages of references)
- workshop paper (8 pages, a maximum of 10 pages is tolerated)

Formating Instructions / template:
- Please read the instructions here:
  https://www.ares-conference.eu/conference/submission/
- References need to start with a new page!

Double blind review: ARES requires anonymized submissions - please
make sure that submitted papers contain no author names or obvious
self-references.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at
least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the
conference.

Publishing preprints to Arxiv or other, open repositories is allowed
prior to the notification of ARES and does not violate the requirement
for novelty. Reviewers will be asked to not search for and ignore
preprints that can deanonymize blinded submission.

Important Note:
To avoid accepting papers for ARES 2024 which are not presenting
original work, your paper will be plagiarism checked by Docoloc or
iThenticate Plagarism Check. Self-plagiarism also counts as
plagiarism!

In case you include previous work in your paper make sure to add the
sources accordingly. In case you have questions regarding
self-plagiarism please send us an email
(ares@sba-research.org). If you don't
want your paper to be checked automatically please contact us.
