Webpage:http://p2pdep.lip6.fr
Dates:May, 8th, 2012
Location:Sibiu, Romania
Contact Email:miguel.p.correia@ist.utl.pt
Synopsis:
Peer to peer and self-organizing systems hold the promise of offering services and information anywhere and anytime. Designing dependable systems that can cope with the high dynamism and self-organization nature of overlay networks is a challenge. What models are most appropriate for dynamic systems? What kind of consistency requirements can be ensured? How to deploy services and data in order to achieve high availability and better utilization of peer capacities? How can applications adapt themselves to the instability of the system and links? This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different domains to create a forum for investigating the many aspects of providing dependability in self-organizing, large-scale and dynamic systems.

EWDCC 2012

Title:1st European Workshop on Dependable Cloud Computing
Submission Deadline:2012-01-27
Webpage:http://ewdcc12.di.fc.ul.pt/
Dates:May, 8th, 2012
Location:Sibiu, Romania
Contact Email:miguel.p.correia@ist.utl.pt
Synopsis:
Recent studies on cloud offerings and hardware in general show that clouds are less reliable than traditional data centers, and hardware faults are more common than previously assumed. Moreover, the very fact that cloud services need to be accessed remotely, through the Internet, make their perceived availability directly dependent from the availability of the communication between clients and providers. In combination, this basically inhibits the outsourcing of critical applications (e.g., financial or medical services) to the cloud. The 1st EWDCC workshop aims to provide a platform for discussion and dissemination of early-stage recent research efforts that explicitly aim at supporting dependability in the context of cloud computing. We expect the workshop to foster discussion between researchers from both industry and academia.
