DSN 2015 General Chair invites you to come to Rio – “Cidade Maravilhosa” (marvellous city).

Dependable systems must be reliable, trustable, available and resilient to malicious attacks, accidental faults and design errors to attend our society, strongly dependent on computers and software products. Computer malfunctioning in various application areas, such as, bank transactions, transportation, medical equipment, satellites, telecommunication networks among others, can have a detrimental impact on users of vulnerable systems and services.

Research in dependability and security in systems and services can be found at DSN, the most important conference in the world that discusses how systems and services should be developed, tested and evaluated.

DSN offers an international forum to present research results, solutions to problems, insights into emerging challenges. The program of this edition addresses multiple facets of dependable and secure computing, and network.

To complement this well-balanced technical program, two social events have been planned, to integrate the participants into the Brazilian culture, and to offer them the opportunity to share together an enjoyable moment.

Rio de Janeiro is one of the most beautiful city in Brazil and one of the more important research center in Latin America. Its beaches and landscape are incredible and you all must come to see and understand Brazilian style of life. The conference will take place in Copacabana, a central area in Rio and you can find there lots of restaurants and interesting places.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
