Fast Abstracts/Work-In-Progress Articles (http://www.dsn.org/wip.shtml)

A Fast Abstract/WiP paper is a lightly reviewed, two-page technical 
article either on new ideas or work in progress, or opinion pieces that 
can address any issue relevant to dependable systems and networks.

Contributions are particularly solicited from industrial practitioners 
and academics who may not have been able to prepare full papers for DSN, 
but nevertheless seek an opportunity to engage with the DSN community.

Because they are brief and have a later deadline (see below), Fast 
Abstracts/WiP papers enable their authors to:

• Summarize work that is not yet complete

• Put forward novel or challenging ideas

• State positions on controversial issues

• Suggest new approaches to the solution of open problems

Important Dates:
Deadline for submissions: April 7, 2014
Deadline for notifications: April 21, 2014

Submission Guidelines:

Fast Abstracts/WiP papers should be at most two pages in length, must be 
formatted using standard two-column IEEE format, and must be submitted 
by the above deadline. Since there is no revision cycle, the submitted 
papers must be in PDF format and completely ready for printing.

The two-column IEEE format layout guide is available at 

Selection and Notification:

Submissions will be refereed primarily on the basis of relevance to DSN 
and also on their capacity to stimulate and intrigue the reader. 
Accepted contributions will be published in the supplementary volume of 
the 2014 International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks.

However, WiP/Fast Abstract papers are not included in IEEE Xplore and 
publication in the supplementary volume does not in any way limit future 
publications based on this work

For each accepted contribution, one of the authors will deliver a short 
talk (usually five minutes) in the Fast Abstracts/WiP tracks. Submission 
of a contribution indicates an agreement to have one author to present 
the work, if accepted, at the conference.
