Call For Papers

Eighth International Workshop on Software Aging and Rejuvenation (WoSAR 2016)
Co-located with ISSRE 2016, October 23-27, 2016, Ottawa, Canada

Since its first edition in 2008, WoSAR has been the international event
bringing together researchers and practitioners involved with the
theoretical and experimental aspects of software aging and of software
rejuvenation solutions. As a satellite event of the premier symposium,
ISSRE 2016, WoSAR 2016 aims to provide a forum for researchers and
practitioners to present and discuss the state of the art and the new
challenges in software aging and rejuvenation research, as well as a
unique opportunity for establishing collaborations among several
research groups interested in this research field.


This call addresses research on (but not limited to) the following topics:
• Modeling and characterization of the software aging phenomenon;
• Design, implementation, and evaluation of rejuvenation mechanisms;
• Aging monitoring and rejuvenation applied to industrial, large-scale,
and mission-critical systems;
• Modeling, analysis and implementation of rejuvenation scheduling;
• Experimental and empirical software aging detection techniques;
• Prediction models for mean time to aging-related failures;
• Machine learning applied to software aging characterization;
• Test strategies for aging-related bugs (including performance and
stress testing);
• Debugging, fault localization, and static/dynamic program analysis
methods for aging-related bugs;
• Aging-oriented reliability growth models and reliability assessment;
• Control theory applied to software aging and rejuvenation;
• Survivability applied to software aging and rejuvenation;
• Software aging and rejuvenation in dynamic environments (such as in
self-adaptive systems);
• Software product aging versus software run-time aging;
• Novel applications for software rejuvenation;
• Reports and analysis of real case studies;
• Software rejuvenation benchmarking and metrics.

WoSAR is a unique forum for discussing the impacts of software aging and
rejuvenation in different domains of applicability, such as cloud
computing, smart grids, mobile, transportation, embedded systems,
cyber-physical systems, medical devices, and systems of systems.


Paper submission: July 29, 2016
Paper notification: August 19, 2016
Camera-ready copy: August 28, 2016


Authors are invited to submit high-quality unpublished research work
describing the results of theoretical and experimental SAR research.
After rigorous review, all the accepted papers will be included in the
supplemental proceedings and will appear in the IEEE Xplore Digital
Library. Papers must be written in English, and be formatted according
to the IEEE manuscript templates for conference proceedings [1]. Papers
