Seventh European Dependable Computing Conference
May 7-9, 2008
CALL FOR PAPERS
There is an increasing dependency of the society on computing services and their underlying computing systems. This dependency creates strict requirements for the delivered services. These requirements affect to
he quality of service, continuous availability, survivability in the advent of catastrophic failures, confidentiality, intrusion tolerance, etc.
Dependability is a concept that considers all these cross-cutting concerns and required attributes, such as reliability, availability, safety, and security, as well as human factors.
The seventh European Dependable Computing Conference aims at providing a European-hosted venue for researchers and practioners from all over the world to present and discuss their latest research achievements. Original papers are solicited on theory, techniques, systems, and tools for the design, validation, operation and evaluation of dependable computing systems. All kinds of faults are of interest,
from traditional hardware and software faults to accidental and malicious human interactions.
Major topics include, but are not limited to :
Architectures for dependable systems.
Architecture and protocols for security.
Critical infrastructure protection.
Dependability for mobile systems.
Dependability in high-bandwidth and system area networks.
Dependability measurement, modeling, and evaluation.
Dependability in SOA and middleware.
Dependability in wireless sensor and ad hoc networks.
Dependability in high performance and grid systems.
Dependability in business and e-commerce applications.
Dependability in data streaming.
Fault tolerant distributed systems.
Fault tolerance in databases and transactional systems.
Fault tolerance in real-time systems.
Fault tolerance in multimedia systems.
Hardware and software testing, verification, and validation.
Formal methods for dependability.
Information assurance, survivability, and intrusion tolerance.
Internet dependability and quality of service.
Software reliability engineering.
Software engineering for dependability.
EDCC is the successor of two European conference series on fault-tolerance, dependability, and testing dating back to the 70s and 80s. EDCC is now an established conference on dependability organized every 2 years by a European country and attracting papers from all over the world.
