Fast Abstracts

Fast Abstracts are short presentations of work in progress or opinion pieces that can cover any and all facets of dependable systems and networks (maximum 2 pages - standard double-column IEEE format). Because they have late deadlines and are not rigorously refereed, Fast Abstracts allow their authors to:

Report on work that may or may not be complete.
Introduce new ideas to the community.
State positions on controversial issues.

Participants in this track will present a short talk (5 minutes including 1 minute for questions) and publish a concise, two-page abstract in the Supplement of the 2002 International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks.
