According to the latest instruction from the Chinese National Ethnic Affairs Commission, since some in-person participants of DSA 2021 are not on the list submitted in July, the entire approval process must start from the beginning. This cannot be completed before Friday (September 10th). As a result, the face-to-face meeting on September 11th and 12th will not be held as scheduled.
After considering all the facts, the organizing committee has decided to move the entire conference to a virtual mode via Zoom and cancel the on-site meeting. However, this has no impact on the publication of the conference proceedings.
The final program will be announced on September 9th. Please visit the conference website for more details.
We look forward to your participation in the online opening ceremony followed by two keynote speeches this Saturday morning (September 11th).
In 2017, the International Conference on Trustworthy Systems and Their Applications (TSA) and the International Symposium on Dependable Computing and Internet of Things (DCIT) were merged into one large conference and renamed as the International Conference on Dependable Systems and Their Applications (DSA). This year will be the fifth meeting after the merge. In the past, both TSA and DCIT were technically sponsored by the IEEE Reliability Society. Following the same tradition, DSA 2021 also has the same technical sponsorship from IEEE. The focus is on innovative methodologies, techniques, tools, and management to produce dependable and trustworthy systems and their applications in a more cost-effective way. It provides an opportunity for academic researchers, industry practitioners, and government policy and decision makers to exchange ideas and results, share experiences, and explore possible solutions to overcome current challenges.
