Invitation from General Chair

On behalf of the Organizing committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 2005 International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks (DSN-2005), the leading international conference on dependability. This year, the conference is being held in Yokohama, Japan, from June 28th to July 1st.

Dependability is a vital attribute for computing systems and communication networks that pervade every aspect of modern societies and our daily lives. As we have increasingly relied on correct and safe functioning of these systems and networks, there have been increasing concerns about malicious exploitation of imperfect systems and networks and intentional cyber-attacks as well as the traditional concerns for inadvertent faults, errors, and failures. This conference attempts to provide answers to the important question, "how can we make computer systems and networks that we increasingly rely on more dependable?"

The conference will have multiple main tracks of refereed papers for the Dependable Computing and Communications Symposium (DCCS) and the Performance and Dependability Symposium (PDS), as well as plenary sessions for Keynote and Panel. The conference will also feature three Workshops, five Tutorials, Student Forum, Industry Sessions, and Fast Abstracts with posters to emphasize late-breaking research. There will be a plenty of opportunity for informal discussions during breaks and social activities including welcome reception, excursion to Japanese garden (Sankei-En) and world-heritage "Noh" performance in Yokohama "Noh" Theater, followed by dinner cruise on Tokyo/Yokohama Bay.

I look forward to welcoming you to Yokohama, Japan this June!
