Background & Key topics

Information, communication and electronic technologies are, on the one hand, mean of dependability and safety assurance for sophisticated systems and, on the other hand, they are source of threats, vulnerabilities and fatal failures causing new reliability, security and safety deficits for critical infrastructures and business applications. Hence, in this regard role and influence of ICT systems, electronic devices are becoming a mandatory part of each complex system and the linkage between ones and infrastructures increase. Failures and emergencies of critical systems as a rule are caused by several reasons, combination of physical, design and interaction faults and human errors. Thus to ensure dependability we have to analyze related possibilities and risks at the all levels of a hierarchy “element-component-system-infrastructure” taking into account interaction and interdependency in the vertical and horizontal dimensions. Paradigm “dependable and safe infrastructure/system/component out of undependable and unsafe (or not enough dependable and safe) systems/components/elements” is becoming more and more important.

The DESSERT conferences beginning 2006 focus on the problems of dependability, security and safety assessment and assurance at the component, system and infrastructure levels. The IEEE DESSERT’18 is responding to major challenges for them considering modern information, communication and electronic technologies and paradigms such as cloud and fog computing, Internet of things and everything, big data, software defined applications, cyber physical systems and so on. It relates to regulation, analysis, modeling, development, verification, operation andmaintenance of hardware, software and human related components, computer systems, networks and infrastructures for safety critical (I&C systems of nuclear power plants and power grids, ground and boarding aviation and piloting space systems, railway automatics, computer-based health systems, etc.), mission critical (unmanned space systems, etc.) and business (banking systems, telecommunications, e-services, etc.) critical applications.

Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts demonstrating recent advances the following areas, but are not limited to

  • Methodology of dependable and resilient computing and communication
  • Critical infrastructure and I&C safety and security
  • Dependability and resilience of web, cloud, fog and dew computing
  • Reliability, safety and cyber security of IoT systems for human and industry domains
  • Fault- and intrusion-tolerance and testing of CPU and FPGA-based systems
  • Cyber safety and cyber security in post-quantum era
  • Model-checking for development and verification
  • Assurance case-based techniques for critical and business applications
  • Technology oriented software reliability assessment and management
  • Big data analysis for dependability of software and systems
  • Techniques of green computing and communication
  • Intellectual systems for safety and security
  • Reliability and safety of drones and UAV fleets
  • Dependable aerospace, automotive and railway systems and devices
  • Diversity for safety critical systems and e-services
  • Signal processing and recognition for dependable computing
  • University-industry cooperation for business and critical domains.

The conference will include special events (workshops, tutorials, industrial panels and so on) including sessions dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the 1st NATO Software Engineering Conference, where the term “software engineering” was coined (and development of “critical software engineering” and “software reliability engineering”), and to the 70th anniversary of the Claude Shannon’s paper “A Mathematical Theory of Communication”, etc.
