System diagnosis represent a series of pre-deployment or post-deployment
activities to identify feature interactions, service interactions,
behavior that is not captured by the specifications, or abnormal
behavior with respect to system specification.  As systems grow in
complexity, the need for reliable testing and diagnosis grows
accordingly. The design of complex systems has been facilitated by
CAD/CAE tools. Unfortunately, test engineering tools have not kept pace
with design tools, and test engineers are having difficulty developing
reliable procedures to satisfy the test requirements of modern systems.
Therefore, rather than maintaining a single candidate system diagnosis,
or a small set of possible diagnoses, anticipative and proactive
mechanisms have been developed and experimented. In dealing with system
diagnosis data overload is a generic and tremendously difficult problem
that has only grown. Cognitive system diagnosis methods have been
proposed to cope with volume and complexity.

The International Workshop on Systems Diagnosis, SYDIA 2007, brings
together practitioners and researchers for discussion and work on the
emerging aspects pertaining to advanced techniques, platforms,
paradigms, theories, and techniques for designing and deployment of
systems diagnosis.

TOPICS OF SPECIAL INTEREST (but not limited to):

Diagnosis platforms

Diagnosis policy language

Diagnosis event formats

Process algebras for systems diagnosis

Probabilistic diagnosis of multiprocessor systems

Self-diagnosis in distributed systems

Cognitive system diagnosis

System diagnosis using propagation models

Technical intuition in systems diagnosis

Managing conflicts in systems diagnosis

Hybrid systems diagnosis

Diagnosis tools

End-to-end diagnosis

Remote system diagnosis

Diagnosis licensing

Real-time symptom detection and fixing actions

Forensic/real-time/anticipative diagnosis

Diagnosing mobility-oriented systems

Diagnosis of discrete event systems

Diagnosis of complex dynamical systems


The SYDIA 2007 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society
Press, posted on IEEE Xplore Digital Library, and indexed with major

Regular papers

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. Every
submission will receive an ID from the EDAS system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11" (two columns IEEE format),
not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The
formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page.

Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be
provided by the IEEE CS Press an online author kit with all the steps an
author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL
will be included in the letter of acceptance.

Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations

The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and
positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a
10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the
slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published
in the conference?s CD collection, together with the regular papers. [

Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals
can be for half or full day tutorials. [ [log in to unmask] ]

Panel proposals

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize
dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and
paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and
manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines.
Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating
their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the
panel, as well as short biographies. [ [log in to unmask] ]
