Who should attend? What are the issues?

The objective of this Symposium is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from different "service" related areas within both
industry and academia. We specially encourage original papers
addressing problems of service availability at all layers, including
experience on:
* Dependability in Service Oriented Architectures (SOA): What
dependability requirements are imposed by users and law? How are
these requirements addressed in the SOA ?
* Dependability in heterogeneous integrated systems: what is the
state of the art in dependable heterogeneous systems? Do we need
new standards?
* Development and design tools for dependability: how can we support
the day to day design, implementation, deployment and
maintenance of
dependable systems? Can we automatically "create" dependable
solutions? How can we integrate dependability properties in common
development environments?
* Certified dependability: How can we certify service-level
agreements (SLA) and dependability properties in ongoing

Topics: All areas of service availability are solicited, including
but not limited to:

* Robust services and infrastructure design/modeling/evaluation
* Dependability and security requirements, design and
test ofservices and SLA's
* Availability/reliability models for composable systems
* Service development, analysis, testing - models, environments,
* Dependable solutions based on Java
* Availability standards for service implementation,
certification, support
* Service management - certification, rating, service agreements,
* Interfaces for service implementers - usability, security and
* Modeling, measuring and implementing dependability and security of
integrated information and communication services
* Virtualization technologies and dependable services
* User aspects of service availability - dependability, performance,
security, privacy
* Dependability tools integrated in Eclipse environment
* Service discovery
* Service improvement and enhancement
* Highly available service system

Manuscripts should be submitted (and
clearly indicated) as either Regular Papers or Practical Experience
Reports. Regular Papers should describe original, unpublished work
on current research and novel ideas. Practical Experience Reports
should describe an experience or a case study. Submissions whose
contributions are supported by experimental evaluations are strongly

The title page should include the title of the paper, author name(s),
affiliations, mailing address, e-mail address, a maximum of 150- word
abstract, five keywords and the submission category. The format of
submissions for review should be single-column, 11-point font size
and double-spaced: Not more than 20 pages for Regular Papers and not
more than 12 pages for Practical Experience Reports including figures,
tables and references. Papers should be submitted electronically
through the symposium web page. Accepted papers are planned to be
published in the Symposium Proceedings in a Special Volume of
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series (please refer to
the Authors Section "Information for LNCS Authors" at www.springer.
com/lncs/ ). For further information, please visit our symposium web
