14th International Workshop on Software Engineering for Resilient Systems
12th September 2022 - Zaragoza, Spain

Resilient systems withstand, recover from, and adapt to disruptive changes with acceptable degradation in their provided services. Resilience is particularly important in modern software and software-controlled systems, many of which are required to continually adapt their architecture and parameters in response to evolving requirements, customer feedback, new business needs and platform upgrades. Resilience also has to cover extra-functional behavior: despite frequent changes and disruptions, including unforeseen failures and malicious cyber-attacks, systems are expected to function correctly and reliably. This is particularly important for critical services, e.g., in transportation, healthcare, energy production and e-government.

Design for resilience is an increasingly important area of software engineering; new deployment platforms as edge and fog computing and blockchains/distributed ledgers facilitate new resilience techniques, but also pose new challenges.

The SERENE workshop series has a long tradition of bringing together leading researchers and practitioners from academia and industry, to advance the state-of-the-art and to identify open challenges in the software engineering of resilient systems. Since 2015 SERENE has been a part of a major European dependability forum – EDCC. This year, SERENE will be held together with the main EDCC'22 conference.

The SERENE 2022 workshop will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas on advances in all areas relevant to software engineering for resilient systems, including, but not limited to:

Development of resilient systems

- Engineering processes for resilient systems
- Requirements engineering & re-engineering for resilience
- Frameworks, patterns and software architectures for resilience
- Engineering of self-adaptive systems
- Design of trustworthy and intrusion-safe systems
- Resilience at run-time (mechanisms, reasoning and adaptation)
- Resilience & dependability (resilience vs. robustness, dependable vs. adaptive systems)

Verification, validation and evaluation of resilience

- Modelling and model-based analysis of resilience properties
- Formal and semi-formal techniques for verification and validation
- Experimental evaluations of resilient systems
- Quantitative approaches to ensuring resilience
- Resilience prediction

Case studies & applications

- Empirical studies in the domain of resilient systems
- Methodologies adopted in industrial contexts
- Cloud, edge and fog computing and resilient service provisioning
- Resilience through and in blockchain and distributed ledger-based applications
- Resilience for data-driven systems (e.g., big data-based adoption and resilience)
- Resilient cyber-physical systems and infrastructures
- Global aspects of resilience engineering: education, training and cooperation

We welcome relevant contributions in the following forms:

- Technical papers describing original theoretical or practical work (max. 11 pages)
- Experience/Industry papers: describing practitioner experience or field studies, addressing an application domain and the lessons learned (max. 11 pages)
- PhD Forum papers describing objectives, methodology, and results at an early stage of research (6-8 pages)
- Project papers describing goals and results of ongoing projects (6-8 pages)
- Tool papers presenting new tools or new versions of existing tools that support the development of resilient systems (6-8 pages)
- Position papers on challenges and emerging trends in resilience (6 pages)

Submission due (extended): June, 13th 2022
Notification Date: July, 2nd 2022
Workshop Date: September, 12th 2022

All submissions should describe, in English, original work that has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere.

Papers will be evaluated based on originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop.

PDF versions of the submissions should be submitted electronically via EasyChair.
Please note that the review process is double-blind, so papers submitted for consideration should not include the names of the authors and their affiliations.

We are in the process of negotiating the best option for the workshop proceedings. This information will be available soon at the workshop website. We request submissions to be prepared in the standard Springer LNCS conference format (see the workshop website).
