The International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability. This conference highlights 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 map.
Proceedings of the ARES conference will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Selected papers that are accepted by and presented at the ARES Conference will be published, after further revision, in special issues of the following international journals:
* International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems (IJCCBS)
* Journal of Information System Security (JISSec)
