Fast Abstracts

Fast Abstracts are short presentations of work in progress or opinion pieces that can cover any and all facets of dependable systems and networks (maximum 2 pages, standard double-column IEEE format). Because they have late deadlines and are not rigorously refereed, Fast Abstracts allow their authors to:
  • Report on work that may or may not be complete
  • Introduce new ideas to the community
  • State positions on controversial issues
Participants in this track will present a short talk (5 minutes including 1 minute for questions) and publish a concise, two-page abstract in the Supplement of the 2004 International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks. Fast Abstract sessions have been amongst the most attended in past DSN editions, with contributors as diverse as young students and distinguished members of the community.

Abstracts should be no more than two pages long (IEEE double-column format), and should be submitted in camera-ready form, ready to be printed. Contributions should be submitted electronically (.pdf or .ps format) to the Fast Abstracts Chair.
