Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Edinburgh, UK
Workshop On Architecting Dependable Systems
Motivation and Theme
This workshop will continue the initiative, which started five years ago, of bringing together the international communities of dependability and software architectures. The first workshop on Architecting Dependable Systems was organised during the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) 2002. Since then six workshops were organised and three books were published.
This series of workshops have shown to be a fertile ground for both communities to clarify previous approaches, thus helping to promote new topical areas where the most promising research may lie, while avoiding the reinvention of the wheel.
The main focus of this series of workshops is to address at the architectural level the structuring, modelling, and analysis of dependable software systems.
Objectives and Topics
The aim of the workshop is to bring together the communities of software architectures and dependability to discuss the state of research and practice when dealing with dependability issues at the architecture level. We are interested in submissions from both industry and academia on all topics related to software architectures for dependable systems. These include, but are not limited to:
Participation, Submission and Selection Process
The workshop is open to all researchers, system developers and users who are involved with or have an interest in dependability at the architecture level. We encourage all the prospective participants to submit an extended abstract, work-in-progress report or position paper.
The submissions must conform to the proceedings publication format
(IEEE Conference style) and should not exceed six pages, including all text,
references, appendices, and figures. They should explain the contribution to
the field and the novelty of the work, making clear the current status of
the work. Workshop paper submissions should be sent electronically
(preferably in PDF format), by the submission date, to
Rogerio de Lemos, University of Kent, UK.
