SBA organizes the ARES Conference (http://www.ares-conference.eu/). This year’s conference will be held in Japan. In 2010 the conference will move back to Europe, where Vienna is the planned venue.
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.
