Summary form only given, as follows. This session provides the opportunity for conference participants to make either of two types of short five-minute presentations: Work in progress. These report on formative new ideas that have not yet found their way into the literature or work that is otherwise not to the point of publication. Outrageous opinions. Deliberately provocative statements of opinion concerning some aspect of fault-tolerant computing; must be topical, technically oriented and in good taste, but otherwise, anything is fair game. Titles and short abstracts of the presentations were submitted to the organizer by electronic mail or hardcopy, with a deadline close to the session time to encourage genuinely new ideas. Submissions have been selected based on perceived audience appeal, ability to stimulate discussion, and to maintain balance among the topics associated with FTCS. Some preference has been given to young researchers as a way to encourage new people to participateactively in the conference.
