Increasingly, 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. This workshop is a continuation of the FTPDS (Fault-Tolerant Parallel and Distributed Systems) workshop series. The goal 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:

Submission of papers, at most 10 pages long including figures and references in the IEEE format describing original unpublished research by

January 25, 2017

in PDF format electronically via the workshop webpage:


All papers will be reviewed.

Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference.
