Invitation from the DSN 2007 General Chairman:

Corporate industry, business enterprise, national infrastructure, government, private individuals (you, and I) rely more and more upon systems and networks that integrate digital devices and communications with complex software and humans. These systems must maintain safety and confidentiality, be resilient to malicious attacks and accidental faults – it is essential that they deliver a service that is dependable in all respects.

DSN is the annual international conference that directly addresses this requirement, presenting research and solutions, and posing new challenges. In 2007 the DSN conference will once again incorporate the Dependable Computing and Communications Symposium (DCCS) and the Performance and Dependability Symposium (PDS), together with workshops, tutorials, student forum, fast abstracts and an exhibition of tools and technologies.

The DSN 2007 conference will be held at the "EICC", the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, a superb modern conference facility right in the heart of the city, with a wide variety of accommodation options close at hand.

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland, and one of the most attractive cities in the UK. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site it offers a vast range of cultural and historical attractions. These include: Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, the new Scottish Parliament building, and the Queen's official residence in Scotland - Holyrood Palace; art galleries and museums abound, and of particular significance is the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre. Indeed, as General Chair for DSN 2007, I look forward to sharing a dram of uisge beatha (Gaelic for "water of life") with each and every delegate.

Professor Tom Anderson, Newcastle University
