Welcome to participate in DependSys 2019, Guangzhou, China, November 12-15, 2019! The DependSys 2019 conference is the 5th event of the conference series, which is a timely event bringing together new ideas, techniques, and solutions for dependability and its issues in sensor, cloud, and big data systems and applications. The first event (DependSys 2015) was held in Zhangjiajie, China, which was of a great success. 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 2019 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. Two outstanding papers will be selected to receive the Best Paper Awards.

DependSys 2019 is an international conference for presenting and discussing emerging ideas and trends, algorithms and applications, systems design techniques, platforms and tools, as well as measurement assessment tools in all aspects of Dependability, which include (but are not limited to) the following list:

All papers in PDF format need to be submitted electronically through the conference website ( 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 14 pages in Springer LNCS format (or up to 20 pages with the pages over length charge), including tables, figures, references and appendices. The majority of papers that finally appear in the conference will likely be the result of the conference 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.
