The International Symposium on Advances in Fault Tolerance and 
Transaction Processing (AFTP)
August 26-28, 2013, Coral Beach Hotel & Resort, Paphos, Cyprus
In conjunction with the The 10th International Conference on Mobile Web
Information Systems

Fault Tolerance (FT) and Transaction processing (TP) have been
successfully used in database applications and distributed computing
systems from decades. FT is the ability of an application to properly
continue in the event of a failure and the basic principle of TP is to
provide applications with concurrent, reliable and efficient access to
shared data sources. Classical fault tolerance and transaction processing
have been well understood and highly researched through the design and
development of numerous models, protocols, frameworks, prototype tools and
commercial systems.
The current widespread technological advancements in computer systems,
software applications, communication networks, and mobile devices provide
new platforms such as Web 2.0/3.0, service-oriented architecture, data
services, cloud services, Internet of Things, and mobile and pervasive
computing. These new platforms create new challenges for fault tolerance
and transaction processing. These challenges are to deal with environments
wherein computing devices and services are context-aware, adaptive and
responsive to the user’s needs and the execution environment. Further,
without regard to time and location they allow users to move between
geographical areas and acquire a variety of services using handheld
devices and wireless networks. In addition, current software services such
cloud generally process large volume of data and require longer processing
time thus becoming more vulnerable to failures. These new systems and
platforms demand new ways of managing fault tolerance and transactions.

The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners in order to present the current research work on the
advances in transaction processing. The main topics to be addressed
include (but not limited to):
* Advanced transaction models and protocols
* Transaction models for NoSQL data
* Failure and recovery techniques
* Testing of transactions and fault tolerant schemes
* Performance and efficiency of fault tolerant
* High performance transaction processing
* New correctness criteria and properties of transactions
* Transactional web services and SOA
* Cloud service provisioning using transactional applications
* Context-aware transaction processing
* Transaction processing and fault tolerance in I-o-T
* Mobile and pervasive transactions
* Transactional memory
* Reliable service management
* Fault-tolerant models for cloud services
* Recovery mechanisms for web services
* Fault-tolerant execution of web services
* Fault-tolerant transaction processing for big data
