Workshop on Dependability in Evolving Systems - WDES

Modern systems and infrastructures are becoming large and interconnected, with a lot of source of dynamicity and uncertainty. This is true also for systems that were in the past conceived as mostly static, i.e., safety-critical systems and critical infrastructures. Adaptation is a fundamental feature, but its interplay with dependability is difficult to assess. Dependability in evolving systems is still an open problem, with different research directions still to explore. This workshop is expected to attract a significant number of submissions in the Topics of Interest from researchers in the LADC community, as a venue to discuss preliminary results and new research ideas in supporting dependability in adaptive systems.

Workshop on Dependability and Human-Computer Interaction WD-HCI

This workshop will explore the relationship between dependability and Human-Computer Interaction. Both aspects are important for computer development but usually have not been studied together. As those computing related features have mutual influences, this workshop proposes a first shared space to analyze and to explore its relationship and what should be next research and development steps in the Topics of Interest.
