Invitation from the General Chair
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 48th International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN-2018) in the very lively Luxembourg City, one of the European centers of ICT-based industry and research!
DSN has pioneered the fusion between dependability and security research, understanding the need to simultaneously fight against cyber-attacks, accidental faults, design errors, and unexpected operating conditions.
Its distinctive approach to both accidental and malicious faults made DSN the flagship conference for research furthering robustness and resilience of today’s wide spectrum of computing systems, with dependability and security treated under a common body of knowledge.
DSN opens on Monday 25th, with Workshops and Tutorials Day: a set of five fascinating thematic workshops, together with four state-of-the-art tutorials. A relaxing welcome reception in the evening prepares the souls for the following three days, as the conference goes on with lively tracks, enriched by several plenary sessions, amongst which two distinguished keynote speeches, and several award delivery talks: Jean-Claude Laprie outstanding paper award, Carter PhD dissertation award, and the Best Paper award. The program body consists of a combination of main symposium papers, with student forum and fast abstracts, and industry track ones.
With this not-to-miss program, I am certain we will all meet to discuss the latest advances in dependability and security, not only inside the meeting rooms, but also as we have fun during the excursion through the Luxembourgish wine valley, ending with a dinner cruise on the Moselle river.
The conference venue, Parc Alvisse Hotel, is a modern hotel located on the outskirts of Luxembourg city, a mere 10 minutes away from city centre, combining **** comfort and a relaxing atmosphere, with the latest technologies to support a conference like DSN. We have secured a block of rooms at an extraordinary price, though there are other offers available in town center as well, all on a first-come-first-served basis. Because this is peak season, we encourage you to make your reservation and travel plans as soon as possible.Looking forward to seeing you at DSN in Luxembourg next June 2018!
