--------------------------------------------------------------------

INTRODUCTION
=============
The DependSys 2016 is the second event, which is a timely event bringing
together new ideas, techniques, and solutions for dependability and its
issues in sensor, cloud, and big data systems and applications. The first
event (DependSys 2015) was held at the same place, which was of a great
success. 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 2016 is to provide 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.

SCOPE AND INTERESTS

SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION INFORMATION
======================================
All papers in PDF format need to be submitted electronically through the
symposium website (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dependsys2016).
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 12 pages (or 18 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.
All accepted papers will be published by Springer LNCS (EI-Indexed).
