SERENE 2011 : 3rd International Workshop on Software Engineering for Resilient Systems
Conference Series : Software Engineering for Resilient Systems
Call For Papers
SERENE 2011 -- 3rd International Workshop on Software Engineering for
September 29-30, 2011
Unprecedented level of complexity of modern software makes it
difficult to ensure its resilience -- an ability of the system
persistently deliver its services in the trustworthy way even when
facing changes. Yet we are observing the increasingly pervasive use of
software in such critical infrastructures as transportations, health
care, energy production etc. Such a trend could lead to devastating
accidents unless the research community develops powerful methods for
assuring resilience of software-intensive systems. The SERENE 2011
workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to
exchange reports on advances in all areas relevant to this challenge,
including, but not limited to:
- Modelling of resilience properties: formal & semi-formal techniques
- Requirements, software engineering & re-engineering for resilience
- Verification and validation of resilient systems
- Resilience prediction and experimental measurement
- Error, fault and exception handling in the software life-cycle
- Frameworks, patterns and software architectures for resilience
- Resilience at run-time: metadata, mechanisms, reasoning and adaptation
- Engineering of self-healing autonomic systems
- Quantitative approaches to ensuring resilience
- CASE tools for developing resilient systems
Papers will be evaluated by the Programme Committee according to their
originality, significance, soundness, quality of presentation and
relevance with respect to the main issues of the workshop.
There are several categories of submissions:
- Regular papers not exceeding 15 pages including appendices using
Springer LNCS format.
- Experience/Industry papers not exceeding 15 pages describing
practitioner experience or case studies, addressing the application
domain and lessons learned.
- Short papers not exceeding 6 pages that include the following categories:
- Discussion papers: Papers describing work in progress or novel ideas
in engineering of resilient systems.
- Project papers: Papers describing goals and results of ongoing projects
related to SERENE
- Tool papers: Papers presenting new tools or new versions of the existing
tools that support the development of resilient systems.
The Proceedings will be published as a volume in the LNCS series
