{DSN10 logo}   The 40th Annual IEEE/IFIP International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN 2010)

June 28 - July 1, 2010
Fairmont Chicago, Millennium Park
Chicago, Illinois, USA



The Student Forum at DSN provides an opportunity for students currently working in the area of dependable and secure computing to present and discuss their research objectives, approach, and preliminary results.

The Forum is an opportunity for presentation and for discussion. The selected student research papers will be presented in the Student Forum sessions, which will be attended by both fellow students and experienced researchers working in the field of dependable and secure computing, who will actively participate in the discussions. Each paper will be allocated a minimum of 20 minutes for presentation and discussion (exact time to be determined by the number of papers selected and time constraints). One of the key goals of the Forum is to provide student presenters with feedback on their preliminary results that might help them with their future research directions.

Questions or comments about the Student Forum should be directed to DSN_student_forumece.gatech.edu.
