The Fourth International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security ("ARES 2009 -The International Dependability Conference") will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability. ARES 2009 will highlight 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:

The editors of the journals will select the papers that fit within the journal's scope and invite the best papers to submit an extended version. You can, however, contact the PC chair Edgar Weippl (eweippl [ - at - ] securityresearch [ - dot - ] at) directly if you already have an extended version of your full paper to speed-up the entire process.

This year's keynotes speaker will be Elisa Bertino (Purdue University),  Sushil Jajodia (George Mason University Fairfax) and Eiji Okamoto (Tsukuba University). This year's invited talk is held by Solange Ghernaouti-Helie (Université de Lausanne). Further details are provided >>here<<.
