Tutorials – Call for Contributions

Call for Tutorial Contributions

The DSN Tutorial program is a forum for leading work on all aspects of dependability, security and resilience of systems and networks, covering both theory and experimental themes. It offers attendees the chance to learn from and to interact with leading experts in the most popular areas of dependability, security and resilience of systems and networks.

DSN tutorials cover a wide range of topics. The tutorials committee is soliciting proposals for full-day (six hours) or a half-day (three hours) tutorials on topics in the following areas (as well as others):

  • Hardware: microprocessors; VLSI; storage; networking; nanoscale systems
  • Software: applications; middleware; containers; operating systems
  • Infrastructure Abstraction: virtualization; software-defined storage; software-defined networking
  • Cloud Computing: cloud storage; computing; networking; platforms; applications; resiliency patterns
  • Networks: wireless networks; mobility; next-generation networks
  • Cyber-physical systems: embedded systems; networked embedded systems; SCADA; automotive, aerospace, and medical systems; smart grid
  • Socio-technical systems: virtual worlds; human-computer interaction; usable security; online social networking
  • Models and methodologies for programming, evaluating, and assessing dependable and secure systems: performance, dependability and security evaluation; analytical and numerical methods; simulation; experimentation; benchmarking; verification; field data analysis; data mining techniques

Hands-on Tutorials: As in previous years, the DSN2017 tutorial committee encourages ”hands-on” tutorials – those that give attendees the chance to try pre-prepared demos or exercises during the tutorial. Tutorials focused on introductory courses on new resiliency technologies, as well as development, analysis, monitoring and assessment tools are good candidates for hands-on demos, but others may be as well. Priority will be given to tutorials on disruptive technologies and/or with substantial hands-on activities for attendees.

A list of past DSN tutorials (2012 – 2017) is available here.


If your tutorial is accepted, you are also welcome to provide a 2-5 minute video pitch to advertise your tutorial, which will be posted on the DSN2018 website as well as on other channels (e.g., youtube, facebook, twitter and dedicated dependability and IEEE/IFIP channels) well in advance of the conference.
