DependSys 2015 is a timely event that targets bringing together new ideas, techniques, and solutions for dependability and its issues in sensor, cloud, and big data systems and applications. As we are deep into the Information Age, we witness the explosive growth of data available on the Internet. Human beings are producing quintillion bytes of data every day, which come from sensors, individual archives, social networks, Internet of Things, enterprise and Internet in all scales and formats. One of the most challenging issues we face in achieving designed system performance to an expected level, i.e., how to effectively provide dependability in sensor, cloud, and big data systems. These systems need to typically run continuously, which often tend to become inert, brittle, and vulnerable after a while. 
We can observe that this trend is further stimulated by an ever-increasing cost pressure.  The focus of DependSys 2015 is to create a forum for individuals, academics, practitioners, and organizations, who are developing or procuring sophisticated computer systems on whose dependability of services they need to place great confidence. Future systems need to close the dependability gap in face of challenges in different circumstances. The emphasis will be on differing properties of such services, e.g., continuity, effective performance, real-time responsiveness, ability to overcome data fault/corruption/anomaly, ability to avoid catastrophic failures, prevention of deliberate privacy intrusions, reliability/availability/sustainability/adaptability/heterogeneity/security/safety, and so on. SCOPE AND INTERESTS

All papers in PDF format need to be submitted electronically through the symposium website (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dependsys2015). Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. Papers must be clearly presented in English, must not exceed 10 pages (or 14 pages with the over length charge), including tables, figures, references and appendixes, in Springer LNCS Format with PDF. The majority of papers that finally appear in the symposium will likely be the result of the symposium solicitation. Papers will be evaluated based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation assessed by at least three reviewers from respective research areas.Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the work at the conference. All accepted papers 
will be published by Springer LNCS (EI-Indexed). 
(1) Paper Submission Deadline:  August 12, 2015
(2) Author Notification: September 05, 2015
