Agenda

Dependability is a cornerstone of the information society. Dependability clearly is a holistic concept: Contributing factors are not only technical, but also social, cultural (i.e. corporate culture), psychological (perceived dependability), managerial (information management and processes), and economical. Fostering learning is a key, and simplicity is generally an enabler for dependability.

Unfortunately, heterogeneous, large-scale, and dynamic software systems that typically run continuously often tend to become inert, brittle, and vulnerable after a while. In accordance with J.-C. Laprie we call this effect the dependability gap, which is widened in front of us between demand and supply of dependability, and we can see this trend further fueled by an ever increasing cost pressure.

Future systems need to close the dependability gap in face of challenges such as cross-organisational heterogeneity, massive scale, and mobility. Of course, dependability and adaptiveness can not simply be added to a system like a plug-in module. Rather, for databases, services, middleware, and software development, application developers need tools, sound methodologies, common practices, standards, architectural principles, and middleware services, to tackle the inherent complexity and emerging behavior of distributed systems and to ensure trustworthy services.

The vision of this site is to converge software development tools with middleware, traditional dependability, fault tolerance, security, and adaptivity concepts, together with social and psychological aspects, to compensate for dependability degradation of large and complex software and services.
