The papers in this volume were presented at the 11th International Sym- sium on Stabilization, Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems (SSS), held November 3-6, 2009 in Lyon, France. SSS is an international forum for researchers and practitioners in the design anddevelopmentoffault-tolerantdistributedsystemswithself-*attributes,such as self-stabilization, self-con?guration, self-organization, self-management, se- healing, self-optimization, self-adaptiveness, self-protection, etc. SSS started as theWorkshoponSelf-StabilizingSystems(WSS),the?rsttwoofwhichwereheld inAustinin1989andinLasVegasin1995.Startingin1995,theworkshopbegan to be held biennially; it was held in Santa Barbara (1997), Austin (1999), and Lisbon (2001). As interest grew and the community expanded, in 2003, the title of the forum was changed to the Symposium on Self-Stabilizing Systems (SSS). SSS was organized in San Francisco in 2003 and in Barcelona in 2005. As SSS broadened its scope and attracted researchers from other communities, a couple of changes were made in 2006.
It became an annual event, and the name of the conferencewaschangedto the InternationalSymposiumonStabilization,Safety, and Security of Distributed Systems (SSS). The last three SSS conferences were held in Dallas (2006), Paris (2007), and Detroit (2008).
