RV 2018 : 18th International Conference on Runtime Verification
Conference Series : Runtime Verification
Call For Papers
Runtime verification is concerned with the monitoring and analysis of the runtime behaviour of software and hardware systems. Runtime verification techniques are crucial for system correctness, reliability, and robustness; they provide an additional level of rigor and effectiveness compared to conventional testing, and are generally more practical than exhaustive formal verification. Runtime verification can be used prior to deployment, for testing, verification, and debugging purposes, and after deployment for ensuring reliability, safety, and security and for providing fault containment and recovery as well as online system repair. Topics of interest to the conference include:
* specification languages
* monitor construction techniques
* program instrumentation
* logging, recording, and replay
* combination of static and dynamic analysis
* specification mining and machine learning over runtime traces
* metrics and statistical information gathering
* program/system execution visualization
* fault localization, containment, recovery and repair
* integrated vehicle health management (IVHM)
Application areas of runtime verification include cyber-physical systems, safety/mission-critical systems, enterprise and systems software, autonomous and reactive control systems, health management and diagnosis systems, and system security and privacy.
We welcome contributions exploring the combination of runtime verification techniques with machine learning and static analysis. Whilst these are highlight topics, papers falling into these categories will not be treated differently from other contributions.
An overview of previous RV conferences and earlier workshops can be found at: http://www.runtime-verification.org.
All papers and tutorials will appear in the conference proceedings in an LNCS volume. Submitted papers and tutorials must use the LNCS/Springer style detailed here:
Papers must be original work and not be submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers must be written in English and submitted electronically (in PDF format) using the EasyChair submission page here:
The page limitations mentioned below include all text and figures, but exclude references. Additional details omitted due to space limitations may be included in a clearly marked appendix, that will be reviewed at the discretion of reviewers, but not included in the proceedings.
At least one author of each accepted paper and tutorial must attend RV 2018 to present.
