The Latin-American Symposium on Dependable Computing,LADC,isthemain Latin-American event dedicated to the discussion of the many issues related to dependability in computer systems and networks. It is a forum for researchers and practitioners (from all over the world) to present and discuss their latest results and experiences in this ?eld. LADC2005,thesecondeditionofthisevent,followedonthesuccessofLADC 2003,which took place at the Polytechnic School of the University of S˜ ao Paulo. It was organized by LaSiD, the Distributed Systems Laboratoryassociated with the Department of Computer Science of the Federal University of Bahia. LADC 2005wassponsoredbySBC,theBrazilianComputerSociety,incooperationwith IEEETConFault-TolerantComputing, IFIPWorking Group10.4“Dependable Computing and Fault-Tolerance”,SADIO, the Argentine Society for Informatics and Operations Research, SCCC, the Chilean Computer Science Society, and SMCC, the Mexican Society for Computer Science. LADC2005wasstructuredaroundtechnicalsessions,keynotespeechesanda panel.Twoworkshopswereco-locatedwithLADC2005:WDAS(Latin-American Workshop on Dependable Automation Systems) and WTD (3rd Workshop on Theses and Dissertations on Dependable Computing). WDAS is a forum where members of academia and industry can meet to discuss speci?c dependability issues related to automation systems. WTD is a student forum dedicated to the discussion of ongoing and recent work in the ?eld of dependability carried out at graduate level.
