Fault tolerance engineering has been advocated as one of the main approaches to ensuring the overall system dependability. The 2nd International Workshop on Engineering Fault Tolerant Systems (EFTS 2007) aims to investigate how fault tolerance mechanisms can be taken into account when engineering complex software systems and to improve our understanding of where and how fault-tolerance should be integrated in the software life-cycle. The focus of the workshop is on developing novel models to be applied at different abstraction levels (requirements, architecture and design models for fault tolerance, together with new implementation schemes), innovative technologies (tools and frameworks for implementing distributed fault tolerant systems) and advanced verification environments (to assess the achieved level of fault tolerance and to evaluate the dependability properties of the systems). Recently there has been a growing interest in the areas directly related and overlapping with fault tolerance, such as self-healing, resilience, self-adaptation and self-management. The topics related to engineering of systems with such properties are in the scope of the workshop as the intention is to improve the current understanding of how fault tolerance engineering can benefit from research on these areas.
