Intelligent, Secure, & Dependable Systems in Distributed & Cloud Environments (ISDDC 2017)

October 26, 2017 - October 28, 2017

NYIT’s School of Engineering and Computing Sciences invites you to participate in an international conference on Intelligent, Secure, and Dependable Systems in Distributed and Cloud Environments (ISDDC 2017).

The integration of network computing and mobile systems offers new challenges with respect to the dependability of integrated applications. At the same time, new threat vectors have emerged that leverage and magnify traditional hacking methods, enabling large scale and intelligence-driven attacks against a variety of platforms, including mobile, cloud, Internet-of-Things (IoT), as well as conventional networks. The consequence of this fast evolving environment is the pressing need for effective and efficient paradigms, approaches, and tools for building, maintaining, and managing secure and dependable systems.
