Call details
============
While computing is provided by the cloud and services increasingly pervade our daily lives, dependability is no longer restricted to mission or safety critical applications, but rather becomes a cornerstone of the information society. Unfortunately, heterogeneous, large-scale, and dynamic software systems that typically run continuously, often tend to become inert, brittle, and vulnerable after a while. The key problem is that the most innovative systems and applications are the ones that also suffer most from a significant decrease in dependability when compared to traditional critical systems, where dependability and security are fairly well understood as complementary concepts and a variety of proven methods and techniques is available today. In accordance with Laprie we call this effect the dependability gap, which is widened in front of us between demand and supply of dependability, and we can see this trend further fueled by the demand for resource awareness (including green computing) and increasing cost pressure.

Among technical factors of dependability, software development methods, tools, and techniques contribute to dependability, as defects in software products and services may lead to failure and also provide typical access for malicious attacks. In addition, there is a wide variety of fault tolerance techniques available, including persistence provided by databases, replication, group communication, transaction monitors, reliable middleware, cloud infrastructures, and trustworthy service-oriented architectures with explicit control of quality of service properties. Furthermore, adaptiveness is envisaged in order to react to observed, or act upon expected changes of the system itself, the context/environment (e.g., resource variability or failure/threat scenarios) or users' needs and expectations. Provided without explicit user intervention, this is also termed autonomous behavior or self-properties, and often involves monitoring, diagnosis (analysis, interpretation), and reconfiguration (repair). In particular, adaptation is also a means to achieve dependability in a computing infrastructure with dynamically varying structure and properties.

Topics of interest
==================

* Dependable, Adaptive, and trustworthy Distributed Systems (DADS)
* Architectures, architectural styles, and middleware for DADS
* Protocols for DADS
* Modeling, design, and engineering of DADS
* Foundations and formal methods for DADS
* Applications of DADS
* Evaluations, testing, benchmarking, and case studies of DADS
* Holistic aspects of DADS
