The Third International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (“ARES 2008 – The International Dependability Conference”) will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability. ARES 2008 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.

This year's keynote speaker will beProf. Ravi Sandhu (Executive Director, Chief Scientist and Founder, Institute for Cyber-Security Research (ICSR) and Lutcher Brown Endowed Chair in Cyber-Security),Prof. Günther Pernul (Department of Information Systems, University of Regensburg) and Dr. Vijay Atluri (Management Science and Information Systems Department, Research Director of the Center for Information Management, Integration and Connectivity (CIMIC), Rutgers University)
