Call details
While computing is provided by the cloud and services increasingly 
pervade our daily lives, dependability, adaptiveness and security become 
a cornerstone of the information society. Unfortunately, most innovative 
systems and applications (Internet of Things, Industrial IoT, Smart 
Environments, Mashups, NewSQL) suffer from a lack of dependability and 
security, which is fueled by global scale, mobility and heterogeneity, 
as well as the demand for resource awareness, green computing, and 
increasing cost pressure.

Among technical factors, software development methods, tools, and 
techniques contribute to dependability and security, as defects in 
software products and services may lead to failure and also provide 
typical access for malicious attacks. In addition, there is a wide 
variety of fault and intrusion tolerance techniques available, including 
persistence provided by databases, redundancy and replication, group 
communication, transaction monitors, reliable middleware, cloud 
infrastructures, light-weight virtualization (docker), 
fragmentation-redundancy-scattering, and trustworthy service-oriented 
and microservice architectures with explicit control of quality of 
service properties and monitoring of service level agreements.

Furthermore, adaptiveness is envisaged in order to react to observed, or 
act upon expected changes of the system itself, the context/environment 
(e.g., resource variability or failure/threat scenarios) or users' needs 
and expectations. Provided without explicit user intervention, this is 
also termed autonomous behavior or self-properties, and often involves 
monitoring, diagnosis (analysis, interpretation), and reconfiguration 
(repair). In particular, adaptation is also a means to achieve 
dependability and security in a computing infrastructure with 
dynamically varying structure and properties and can itself be provided 
as a service (Control-as-a-service).
