PRDC 2022 is the twenty-seventh event in a series of symposia started in 1989 devoted to dependable and fault-tolerant computing. PRDC is recognized as the main event in the Pacific area that covers 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 systems 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.
Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
Manuscripts may be submitted in IEEE double-column format to one of the following two categories: (i) Regular Papers and (ii) Practical Experience Reports.
Regular Papers (10 pages, excluding references and appendices) should describe original research (not submitted or published elsewhere).
Submissions not accepted as regular papers may be considered for acceptance as practical experience reports. In such circumstance authors will be given, in acceptance notifications, the option to publish the full-length (10 pages+references) or a reduced (6 pages+references) manuscript.Practical Experience Reports (6 pages, excluding references and appendices) should describe an experience or a case study, such as the design and deployment of a system or actual failure and recovery field data.
All submissions must be made electronically (in PDF format) on the submission website. Please note that all submissions will undergo a double-blind review. Please ensure that you have removed any references that could lead to the disclosure of the authors' identities. Failing to do so may result in rejection of the paper regardless of the paper contributions. Papers will be reviewed by program committee members from the international community and selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. All accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press (EI Indexed). Submission of a contribution to the track indicates agreement to have one author present the work, if accepted, at the conference. In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, virtual presentation and attendance options will be available to accommodate all participants.
One outstanding paper will be selected to receive the Best Paper Award, and one outstanding paper first-authored by a student will receive the Best Student Paper Award. A few excellent papers will be recommended to have their extended versions submitted to IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing (TDSC) or a Special Issue of the Software Testing, Verification and Reliability (STVR) journal.
