Prof. Krishnendu Chakrabarty (Duke University) will be a keynote speaker at the PRDC Symposium.


PRDC 2012 is the eighteenth in this series of symposia started in 1989 that are devoted to dependable and fault-tolerant computing. PRDC is now recognized as the main regular event of the Pacific area that covers the many dimensions of dependability and fault tolerance, encompassing fundamental theoretical approaches, practical experimental projects, and commercial components and systems. As applications of computing systems have permeated into all aspects of daily life, the dependability of computing system has become increasingly critical. This symposium provides a forum for countries around the Pacific Rim and other areas of the world to exchange ideas for improving the dependability of computing systems.

The symposium will be held in Niigata city, which is the largest Japanese city facing the Sea of Japan. Niigata city is two hours away from Tokyo by Shinkansen bullet train. Niigata also has direct flights from major Japanese cities, including Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sapporo, as well as from Shanghai, Seoul and Guam.

The symposium venue is Niigata Convention Center (Toki Messe), located near the center of the city.
