Call For Papers

2nd International Workshop on Risk Assessment and Risk-driven Testing (RISK)
November 2014, Naples/Italy (exact date to be announced)

The second international workshop on Risk Assessment and Risk-driven Testing (RISK) addresses systematic approaches that combine risk assessment and testing. We are interested in innovative techniques, tools and methods from industry or research, that cover systematic risk assessment, whether to obtain risk-optimized test configurations and specifications, to underpin risk analyses by means of experimental data from test results, or to enable domain-specific solutions that address specific kinds of risk (e.g. safety risks, security risks, business risks, legal risks).

Submitted papers should cover at least one of the following topics:
◦Languages for capturing risk information
◦Formal and semi-formal risk analysis techniques (e.g., FTA, FMEA, etc.)
◦Continuous risk assessment and testing
◦Risk-based/risk-oriented testing (including formal verification techniques)
◦Test-based risk assessment
◦Best practices/methodologies for integrating risk analysis and testing
◦Support of standard-compliant quality assurance by risk-based testing (e.g., IEC 61508, ISO 26262, Common Criteria)
◦Verification and validation of safety-/security-critical systems
◦Risk-based testing with model-based technologies
◦Risk-based test automation and tool support
◦Quality and quality improvement of risk-based test models
◦Limitations and restrictions of integrated risk analysis and testing, its costs and economic impact
◦Traceability and management of integrated risk analysis and testing
◦Experience reports and industrial case studies
◦Legal risk management
◦Risk assessment to support regulatory compliance

Venue and Dates
The workshop will take place in November (exact date to be announced), 2014 in Naples, Italy. The workshop will be co-located with the ISSRE 2014
conference (

Submission and Publication Information
Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the workshop. Submissions are
intended to fit into one of the following sections:

Long paper (6 pages):
This format will be used for papers on original research results in the domain of risk assessment and risk-driven testing

Short paper (3 pages):
This format will be used for papers on novel techniques, ideas and positions that have yet to be fully developed. All contributions to RISK have to be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair. All submissions have to follow the ISSRE format, i.e., IEEE style. We are soliciting two kinds of submissions.

Accepted full papers are published by Springer in the LNCS series. Accepted short papers will also be published in the same LNCS volume in a separate section.

Important Dates
Paper submission deadline: 15th August 2014
Author notification: 5th September, 2014
Camera-ready submission: 15th September, 2014
