5:00 pm Concluding remarks
large and complex parallel, distributed and network-centric computing
systems provide unique challenges to the researchers in dependable
computing, especially because of the high failure rates intrinsic to
these systems. The goal of this workshop in continuation of the
FTPDS (Fault-Tolerant Parallel and Distributed Systems) workshop series
is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss all
aspects of dependability including reliability, availability, safety
and security for parallel, distributed and network-centric systems.
All aspects of design, theory and realization are of interest.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Dependable parallel, distributed and network-centric systems
- High availability in parallel, distributed and network-centric computing systems
- Safety and security in distributed and network-centric computing systems
- Autonomic network computing
- Dependability by virtualization
- Dependable high-speed wide, local, and system area networks
- Dependable mobile computing
- Dependable clusters
- Dependable internet servers
- Dependable grid and cloud computing
- Dependability in distributed embedded systems
- Dependability issues of multi- and manycore systems
- Dependable protocols for distributed and network-centric systems
- Protocol verification and validation
- Practical experiences and prototypes
- Dependability evaluation of parallel, distributed and network-centric systems
- Dependable quantum computing
- Dependable biocomputing
