INTRODUCTION

============

DependSys 2015 is a timely event that targets bringing together new ideas,
techniques, and solutions for dependability and its issues in sensor,
cloud, and big data systems and applications. As we are deep into the
Information Age, we witness the explosive growth of data available on the
Internet. Human beings are producing quintillion bytes of data every day,
which come from sensors, individual archives, social networks, Internet of
Things, enterprise and Internet in all scales and formats. One of the most
challenging issues we face in achieving designed system performance to an
expected level, i.e., how to effectively provide dependability in sensor,
cloud, and big data systems. These systems need to typically run
continuously, which often tend to become inert, brittle, and vulnerable
after a while.

We can observe that this trend is further stimulated by an ever-increasing
cost pressure.



The focus of DependSys 2015 is to create a forum for individuals,
academics, practitioners, and organizations, who are developing or
procuring sophisticated computer systems on whose dependability of services
they need to place great confidence. Future systems need to close the
dependability gap in face of challenges in different circumstances. The
emphasis will be on differing properties of such services, e.g.,
continuity, effective performance, real-time responsiveness, ability to
overcome data fault/corruption/anomaly, ability to avoid catastrophic
failures, prevention of deliberate privacy intrusions,
reliability/availability/sustainability/adaptability/heterogeneity/security/safety,
and so on.

SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION INFORMATION

======================================

All papers in PDF format need to be submitted electronically through the
symposium website (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dependsys2015).
Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been
published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference
with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not
exceed 10 pages (or 14 pages with the over length charge), including
tables, figures, references and appendixes, in Springer LNCS Format with
PDF. The majority of papers that finally appear in the symposium will
likely be the result of the symposium solicitation. Papers will be
evaluated based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity
of presentation assessed by at least three reviewers from respective
research areas.



Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the
paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present
the work at the conference. All accepted papers

will be published by Springer LNCS (EI-Indexed).
