                          CALL FOR PAPERS

                         ARES 2007 Workshop 
                                on
   Foundations of Fault-tolerant Distributed Computing (FOFDC 2007)

                          Vienna, Austria
                         April 10-13, 2007

MOTIVATION

Our modern society increasingly relies on the dependability of computing
systems that more and more pervade our daily life. In particular,
complex systems cannot be build completely fault-free despite rigorous
development processes. Fault tolerance -- the avoidance of failures in
the presence of faults -- is one of the most important means to realize
dependable computing systems.

Until recently, fault-tolerant distributed computing has traditionally
addressed static systems only. A static system is fixed with respect to
its constituting components and its configuration. However, dynamically
evolving systems have become more and more important for fault-tolerant
distributed computing as they may either allow to, e.g., achieve higher
availability and reliability than static systems or match the
requirements imposed onto the system by the system's environment more
appropriately. Dynamic systems require new approaches of fault tolerance
as they inherently rely on the ability to adapt under those constraints.

The motivation for this workshop is to foster focused discussions on
foundations of fault-tolerance in both, static and dynamic distributed
systems. Most existing conferences and workshops that cover these topics
have a much broader scope addressing various aspects of dependability
beyond fault tolerance. In contrast, this workshop will have a strong
emphasis on the foundations of fault tolerance in the scope of
distributed systems only.


INVITED TALK

Rachid Guerraoui (http://lpdwww.epfl.ch/rachid/) will give an invited talk
during the workshop. He is currently a full professor at EPFL and is
working on distributed algorithms and programming languages. His recent
works include the book "Introduction to Reliable Distributed Programming"
published by Springer in 2006.


SCOPE

We invite papers on foundational aspects of fault tolerance in
distributed computing such as fault tolerance strategies, fault-tolerant
distributed algorithms, and models for fault tolerance. In particular,
topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* failure and error detection
* backward and forward recovery
* fault handling, fault diagnosis, and fault localization
* compensation (e.g. replication schemes)
* fault tolerance base problems (e.g. agreement, synchronization, 
  leader election)
* self-stabilizing algorithms
* failure models
* specification techniques for fault-tolerant systems


IMPORTANT DATES

Submission deadline: December 1, 2006
Author notification: January 7, 2007
Camera-ready copy:   January 21, 2007
Conference/Workshop: April 10-13, 2007


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

The proceedings of this workshop will be published by IEEE Computer
Society Press in conjunction with the general ARES proceedings. All
submissions must conform to the proceedings publication format (IEEE
Conference style) and should not exceed eight pages, including all text,
references, appendices, and figures.

Papers must be submitted by the submission date using the workshop
management system available at
