The 2011 International Workshop on Survivable Large-Scale Information Systems

(SLSIS 2011)

To be held in conjunction with IEEE ScalCom 2011

(31 August-02 September 2011, Pafos, Cyprus)


Large-scale information systems have evolved from being largely laboratory curiosities with few wide-area deployment to becoming almost ubiquitous in scope. They are now being used in many ways by a wide spectrum of society in a diverse range of topologies, computations, and services. Indeed, virtually all corporations and governments use and provide a multitude of such applications in their supply chain, business-to-business, etc. Similarly, many individuals routinely use dozens of such applications for a variety of entertainment, social, financial, and logistical purposes.

    It is of paramount importance that these large-scale information systems are robust, secure, and can be trusted to survive various threat scenarios. This workshop plans to address the survivability of heterogeneous information systems which may fall into various categories such as tightly-controlled information and control systems for critical infrastructures like the electric power grid, grid computing systems for scientific discoveries, cloud computing infrastructures for the private sector, proprietary social networks, and open peer-to-peer networks.

    This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners different disciplines to share and exchange their experiences and ideas and discuss state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of the survivability of large-scale information systems.
