ARES Conference

The 17th International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (“ARES – The International Dependability Conference”) will bring together researchers and practitioners in the area of dependability. ARES 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, location-based applications, ubiquitous computing, autonomous computing, changes 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.

The acceptance rate of the ARES 2021 conference was 20,34% (full papers only). ARES 2021 was published by the International Conference Proceedings Series published by ACM (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)
