While computing is becoming a utility and software services increasingly pervade our daily lives, dependability is no longer restricted to safety-critical applications, but rather becomes a cornerstone of the information society. Dependability clearly is a holistic concept: Software and product-line engineering methods, tools, and techniques contribute to dependability, as defects in software products and services may lead to failure and also provide typical access for malicious attacks. In addition, there is a wide variety of fault tolerance techniques available, ranging from persistence provided by databases, replication, transaction monitors to reliable middleware with explicit control of quality of service properties and aspect orientation. Adaptiveness, self-properties, and autonomous computing are envisaged in order to respond to short-term changes of the system itself, the context, or the users' expectations. Furthermore, to cover the long-term evolution of systems 'becoming larger, more heterogeneous, and long-lived' their emerging behaviour will have to be controlled and regulated in order to avoid "software utility degradation" which can also result in "dependability degradation".
