Call For Papers


WoSoCer 2016

The 6th International IEEE Workshop on
Software Certification

October 23-27, 2016, Ottawa, Canada


Special theme:
Certification of Safety and Security of
Medical Devices

Co-located with the 27th IEEE Symposium on
Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2016)

The WoSoCer workshop series is a forum for discussing novel
solutions for the assessment and certification of software
in critical systems, and for promoting their adoption through
industrial and academic research projects.

In addition to the traditional topics on the certification of
safety-critical systems, this edition of the workshop will emphasize
the certification of medical devices, where software is
highly interconnected and new regulations are addressing
the consequent safety and security challenges. Contributions on this
theme are especially welcome.

The topics of the workshop include (but are not limited to):

- Certification and assurance of systems and services

- Certification of software for emerging technological trends,
including dynamic, autonomic, large-scale, and distributed systems

- Certification of third-party components, software reuse and
open-source software across systems and services

- Certification and best practices of software development processes
in safety- and security-critical domains

- Quantitative and qualitative evaluation of system dependability and

- Economics of certification and standards

- Adoption of emerging technologies and best-practices in safety- and
security-critical domains

- Open issues, practical experiences and real-world case studies

- Cross-fertilization between safety and security certification and

Accepted peer-reviewed papers will be included in a supplemental
volume of the ISSRE conference proceedings, and published by the
IEEE Computer Society on IEEE Xplore.
