Student Forum

LADC is the major Latin-American event on computer system dependability. The LADC 2022 program will present technical sessions, workshops, tutorials, fast abstracts, keynote talks from international experts in the area and an industrial track. The symposium scope includes recent research results on software and system dependability.

The Symposium is promoted by the CE-TF – Special Committee on Fault Tolerant Systems of the SBC (Brazilian Computer Society).  LADC’2022 will be held in Brazil at the beautiful city of Fortaleza/CE from November 21 to 24.

The Student Forum at LADC welcomes fresh and exciting ideas from students working in the field of dependable and secure computing. The forum is a great opportunity for students to present and receive early feedback on their research objectives, methods, and preliminary results.

Submission Guidelines

Student papers should be single-authored, no longer than 6 pages in length, and formatted using the ACM sigconf template (double column, \documentclass[sigconf]{acmart} for LaTeX. Students should submit papers as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file through JEMS.

The JEMS link for paper submission is:

LADC’2022 Student Forum accepted papers will be publishet at SOL-SBC Open Lib

Accepted papers can be presented both at the conference as well as remotely. Remote presenters, will be able to present at and attend to the Student Forum through a virtual room. However, remote presenters will not be able to attend to the main track, keynotes and tutorial since these will not be streamed.

Comments and questions should be directed to the Student Forum Chair: Fernando Dotti (fernando.dotti at
