LADC is the major Latin-American event dedicated to discussing the many issues related to computer system dependability. This symposium succeeds the well established Brazilian Symposium on Fault Tolerant Computers. Its objective is to provide a forum for international and Latin-American scientists and engineers to present their latest research results and application experience in this very dynamic field. The first LADC was held in São Paulo, Brazil, in October 2003, the second was held in Salvador, Brazil, in October 2005, and the third took place in Morelia, Mexico, in September 2007. This fourth edition is going to occur in João Pessoa, Brazil.
The LADC program will present technical sessions, workshops, tutorials and keynote talks from top international experts in the area. The symposium scope spans system, software, and hardware issues. Major topics include, but are not limited to:
Only original papers (not published or under review elsewhere) should be submitted. All submissions must be made electronically through the conference web site. There will be an award for the best paper of the conference. Also, the best papers of the conference will be invited to submit extended and revised versions for publication in a special issue of the International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE CS.
