Student Forum

Student Forum

The Student Forum will provide an opportunity for students working in the area of dependable computing to present and discuss their research objectives, approaches and preliminary results. The Forum is centered around a conference track during which the selected "student research papers" will be presented.

Preparation and Submission

Student research papers should be single-authored and describe preliminary results and future directions of the student's on-going research. The papers will be reviewed by a committee led by the Student Forum Chair. Accepted contributions will be published in the Supplement of the 2004 International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks.

Papers should be no more than three 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 Student Forum Chair: Susanna Donatelli

Please name your file something very likely to be unique and recognizable; we suggest a concatenation of the first author's last name, organizational abbreviation, and a key word from the title; e.g., "jones-cmu-checkpoint.pdf" or "leblanc-laas-modeling.pdf".

You will receive email acknowledging your submission.

Acceptance and Notification

The criteria for acceptance of Student Research Papers will be originality, relevance and interest to the community. You will be notified when your submission has been screened and whether or not it was accepted.

Important Notes

The final submission deadline is April 26, 2004, but you are encouraged to send in your submission well in advance of the final deadline. The deadline for notification is May 11, 2004.

By submitting a Student Research Paper you are committing yourself to present it at the conference.

Questions or comments about the Student Forum should be directed to the Student Forum Chair: Susanna Donatelli
