Call For Papers

SERENE 2019 — Call for papers

11th International Workshop on Software Engineering for Resilient Systems
17 September 2019, Naples, Italy

Co-located with the 15th European Dependable Computing Conference (EDCC)


Resilient systems withstand, recover from, and adapt to disruptive changes with
acceptable degradation in their provided services. Resilience is particularly
important for 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, platform upgrades, etc. Despite frequent changes and disruptions, software is expected
to function correctly and reliably. This is particularly important for software systems
that provide services which are critical to society, e.g., in transportation,
healthcare, energy production and e-government. Since modern software should
be developed to efficiently cope with changes, unforeseen failures and malicious
cyber attacks, design for resilience is an increasingly important area of software

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 become a part of a major European
dependability forum – EDCC. This year SERENE will be held before the main
EDCC 2019 conference (

The SERENE 2019 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

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 computing and resilient service provisioning;
- 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.


The SERENE-2019 proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series,
and all submissions should conform to the Springer LNCS style specified at

and should describe, in English, original work that has not been published or
submitted for publication elsewhere. PDF versions of papers should be submitted
electronically via EasyChair

We welcome relevant contributions in the following forms:
- Technical papers describing original theoretical or practical work (up to 15 pages);
- Experience/Industry papers describing practitioner experience or field studies,
addressing an application domain and the lessons learned (up to 7 pages);
- PhD Forum papers describing objectives, methodology, and results at an early stage
of research (up to 7 pages);
- Project papers describing goals and results of ongoing projects (up to 7 pages);
- Tool papers presenting new tools or new versions of existing tools that support the
development of resilient systems (up to 7 pages);
- Position papers on challenges and emerging trends in resilience (up to 7 pages).

All submissions will be peer reviewed by three members of the program committee.
They will be evaluated on the basis of originality, contribution to the field,
technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop.

Journal Special Issue

The authors of the best submissions will be invited to submit extended, revised
versions of their papers to the forthcoming Special Issue on ‘Resilient Software
and Software-Controlled Systems’ of Springer’s Computing journal.
