Fast Abstracts



Proposals are solicited for tutorials on topics that cover all aspects of dependability. Candidate topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Theory and practice of dependable system design
  • Hardware and software dependability techniques
  • Verification and measurement of dependability
  • Practical experience
  • Dependability with other "-ilities" (e.g., real-time, scalability, mobility, security)
  • Other important emerging technical areas
Tutorials that demonstrate how techniques and tools from one area of dependability can be applied to others, such as fault tolerance to information assurance and/or non-interference to safety, are particularly welcome. Also encouraged are tutorials that demonstrate the intersection of dependability with some other "-ility", such as real-time, security, etc.
Tutorials should present a well-defined area with sufficient background, motivation, clarity, and depth to enable the attendees to gain basic competence on the topic. Presentations should be accompanied by appropriate supporting materials. Tutorial proposals are limited to 3 pages and should include the following:
  • Description of the topic
  • Structure of the tutorial
  • Expected background of the audience
  • Proposed supporting materials
  • Resume of the presenter
Please submit all contributions (.pdf or .ps file) via e-mail to:
