Cloud computing has recently emerged as a new and popular paradigm for deploying, managing and delivering a variety of services through a shared infrastructure. The services offered through clouds can range from simple data storage to end-to-end management of business processes. However, the broad, complex and dynamic nature of cloud computing environments makes it very challenging to provide resilience against design faults, unforeseen failures, unexpected operating conditions, and adversarial attacks. The widespread failure of Amazon's cloud computing infrastructure last year adversely affected thousands of Amazon's customers, and underscores the importance of providing reliability for cloud computing services.
The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government organizations to foster discussion and share ideas, problems and solutions related to dependability issues in cloud computing. We solicit stimulating, original, previously unpublished ideas on completed work, position papers, and/or work-in-progress papers.
