                         - CALL FOR PARTICIPATION -

                        11th International Symposium on
          Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems

                       November 3-6, 2009, Lyon, France

          Early Registration Deadline:   **September 18, 2009** 

The Symposium is an international forum for researchers and
practitioners in the design and development of fault-tolerant distributed
systems with self-* properties, such as self-stabilizing, self-configuring,
self-organizing, self-managing, self-repairing, self-healing, self-optimizing,
self-adaptive, and self-protecting.  Research in distributed systems is now
at a crucial point in its evolution, marked by the importance of dynamic 
systems such as peer-to-peer networks, large-scale wireless sensor networks,
mobile ad hoc networks, robotic networks, etc. Moreover, new applications such
as grid and web services, banking and e-commerce, e-health and robotics,
aerospace and avionics, automotive, industrial process control, etc. have 
joined the traditional applications of distributed systems. 

The conference provides a wide spectrum of topics, covered in the following
* Alternative Systems and Models
* Autonomic Computational Science 
* Cloud Computing 
* Embedded Systems 
* Fault-Tolerance in Distributed Systems / Dependability
* Formal Methods in Distributed Systems
* Grid Computing 
* Mobility and Dynamic Networks 
* Multicore Computing
* Peer-to-Peer Systems 
* Self-Organizing Systems 
* Sensor Networks 
* Stabilization 
* System Safety and Security
