Rump (Hamburg, Germany/Tokyo, Japan), S. Shary (Novosibirsk, Russia), W. Tucker (Uppsala, Sweden), W. Walter (Dresden, Germany), J. Wolff von Gudenberg (Würzburg, Germany), and N. Yamamoto (Tokyo, Japan). The members of the Organizing Committee were: Balázs Bánhelyi, Tibor Csendes, Boglárka G.-Tóth, Viktor Homolya, Tamás Vinkó, and Dániel Zombori.
During SCAN, more than 50 participants were present and 48 talks in several fields of reliable computation and its applications were given, and organized in 18 thematic sessions. The plenary speakers were Fabienne Jézéquel (Sorbonne University, France), Marko Lange (Hamburg University of Technology, Germany), J.D. Mireles James (Florida Atlantic University, USA), together with the Moore Prize winners Marko Lange and Siegfried Rump (Waseda University, Japan).
The open-access scientific journal Acta Cybernetica offered to publish paper versions of selected presentations after a careful peer review process. Altogether, 7 papers were accepted for publication in the present special issue of Acta Cybernetica.
