The complexity of systems and the way they work together will require new approaches for their development and operation, since conventional deterministic approaches may not be sufficient for enabling the provision of services expected from these systems. Several new approaches have emerged recently from different areas, such as, biologically inspired computing, agent technology, and software engineering, just to mention a few. Whether these approaches are able to meet the stringent requirements usually associated with dependable computing is still open to debate. Hence this Panel, which aims to discuss the promises and challenges of novel approaches for dependable computing. Next, in order to set the context of this Panel, some of these approaches are briefly presented
