Welcome to the ARES Conference

The 13th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2018), will be held from August 27 to August 30, 2018 at the University of Hamburg, Germany.

The International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (“ARES”) brings together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability since 2006. ARES highlights the various aspects of security - 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 security 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 security 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 Secure and Dependable Computing and the definition of a future road map.

Selected papers that are accepted by and presented at the ARES Conference will be published, after further revision, in special issues of international journals (e.g. Springer EURASIP Journal on Information Security). The acceptance rate of the ARES 2017 conference was 24% (full papers only). 

ARES 2018 will be published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM ICPS.

ARES is ranked as B-conference in CORE.
