                        Special Issue on

"Reliable Software Technologies for Dependable Distributed Systems"

                        (Indexed by JCR)

             Submission deadline:  April 20th, 2016


The number of distributed applications as well as the number of users
accessing remote infrastructures and applications has increased
exponentially in the last decade.  New computing infrastructures are now
capable of hosting complex applications, being still the main bottleneck on
the software side. The software platforms are constantly challenged by the
progress pace of hardware, e.g.,multi-core, GPU accelerated processing, or
high speed intra- and inter-node communication networks. The software level
highly impacts systems’ dependability.

This special issue calls for contributions on design and implementation of
dependable systems. Software intensive dependable systems design and
implementation models that efficiently manage the platform resources.
Contributions on the selection and evaluation of distributed interaction
models for middleware, software technology choices, model-based design
including accurate though flexible temporal behavior modeling, resource
efficiency, performance, scalability, and coordination are requested.
Contributions may focus at the different levels of the software stack of a
reliable system: operating systems, middleware, programming models,
security, and related mechanisms to enhance the flexibility and reliability.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the challenging issues in the
design of
reliable and resource efficient software infrastructures for dependable
distributed systems, possibly at large scale:

* Distribution models (publish-subscribe, remote invocations, events,etc.)
* Model driven design
* Resource management, quality of service,  and real-time
* Operating systems and virtualization technology
* Software enabling tools for cyber-physical systems
* Distributed embedded systems
* Performance and quality models in distributed dependable settings
* Exploiting computation power of hardware (multi-core, GPUs, etc.)
* Experiences in actual application scenarios
* Security in large scale deployments
* Quality-aware on-line stream processing


Contributions should be novel, original work, not previously published.
Papers should not be under review at any scientific event (conference,
workshop, journal, etc.).

Papers that have been previously published in conferences or journals are
encouraged to be submitted if they contain, at least, 35% new material and
results. This should be clearly indicated in the cover letter.

Submissions will be between 8 and 10 pages in double column format at the
initial submission stage.  Up to 12 pages after considering reviewers
comments and for the camera ready version.


The timeline for the review process is as follows:

- Submission: April 20th, 2016

- Tentative publication: December 16 / April 17
