Welcome to the ARES Conference

The 15th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES 2020), will be held from August 25 to August 28, 2020 as an all-ditigal conference.

The International IFIP Cross Domain Conference for Machine Learning & Knowledge Extraction (CD-MAKE) will be co-located with ARES 2020!

The ARES & CD-MAKE steering committees closely monitored the COVID-19  situation all around the globe. The safety and well-being of all participants is a top priority for us. Therefore, we decided to switch to an all-digital conference experience. The organizing team is working very hard behind the scenes on making ARES & CD-MAKE 2020 a safe and successful conference in consideration that COVID-19 is an extraordinary global public health issue. We will soon provide more details about the all-digital conference.

We are able to guarantee that ARES & CD-MAKE 2020 will be published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM ICPS (ARES) & Springer LNCS (CD-MAKE).

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 among 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 2018 conference was 22,3% (full papers only). 

ARES 2019 was published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM ICPS.
ARES is ranked as B-conference in CORE.
Qualis (backed by Brazilian Ministry) ranked ARES and Esorics as leading security conference in Europe (A2).
