DSN 2006 will focus on topics relating to the question, "How can we make our computer systems and networks more dependable, reliable and trustworthy and thus make our businesses, homeland and society safer and more secure?" Dependability is a vital attribute of computing and communication systems that pervade every aspect of our daily lives. As we are increasingly relying on reliable and secure functioning of these systems and networks, there have been increasing concerns about malicious exploitation of imperfect systems and networks as well as the traditional concerns for inadvertent or accidental faults, errors and failures.
The DSN 2006 program offers a keynote talk by a business and technology leader, research papers, industry sessions, panels, tutorials, workshops, fast abstracts and a student forum.
In addition to serving as General Chair, Kintala will present the session "Integrating Software Reliability and Software Engineering in Education (or Software Reliability Begins in the Classroom)" along with Professor Larry Bernstein, a Senior Industry Professor in Stevens' Computer Science department.
