International Conference on Runtime Verification (RV 2010)
November 1 - 4, 2010
Sliema, Malta

Runtime verification (RV) is concerned with monitoring and analysis of
software or hardware system executions. The field is often referred to
under different names, such as runtime verification, runtime monitoring,
runtime checking, runtime reflection, runtime analysis, dynamic
analysis, symbolic dynamic analysis, trace analysis, log file analysis,
etc. RV can be used for many purposes, such as program understanding,
systems usage understanding, security or safety policy monitoring,
debugging, testing, verification and validation, fault protection,
behavior modification (e.g., recovery), etc. A running system can be
abstractly regarded as a generator of execution traces, i.e., sequences
of relevant states or events. Traces can be processed in various ways,
e.g., checked against formalized specifications, analyzed with special
algorithms, visualized, etc. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- program instrumentation techniques
- specification languages for writing monitors
- extraction of monitors from specifications; APIs for writing monitors
- programming language constructs for monitoring
- model-based monitoring and reconfiguration
- the use of aspect oriented programming for dynamic analysis
- algorithmic solutions to minimize runtime monitoring impact
- combination of static and dynamic analysis; full program verification
based on runtime verification
- intrusion detection, security policies, policy enforcement
- log file analysis
- model-based test oracles
- observation-based debugging techniques
- fault detection and recovery, model-based integrated health management
and diagnosis
- program steering and adaptation
- dynamic concurrency analysis
- dynamic specification mining
- metrics and statistical information gathered during runtime
- program execution visualization

The RV series of events started in 2001, as an annual workshop. The
RV'01 to RV'05 proceedings were published in ENTCS. Since 2006, the RV
proceedings have been published in LNCS. Starting with year 2010, RV is
an international conference. Links to past RV events can be found at
the permanent URL


RV will have two research paper categories: regular and short papers.
Papers in both categories will be reviewed by the conference Program

- Regular papers (up to 15 pages) should present original unpublished
results. Applications of runtime verification are particularly
welcome. A Best Paper Award (300 Euro) will be offered. Selected
papers will be published in an issue of Formal Methods in System

- Short papers (up to 5 pages) may present novel but not necessarily
thoroughly worked out ideas, for example emerging runtime verification
techniques and applications, or techniques and applications that
establish relationships between runtime verification and other
domains. Accepted short papers will be presented in special short
talk (5-10 minutes) and poster sessions.

In addition to short and regular papers, proposals for tutorials and
tool demonstrations are welcome. Proposals should be up to 2 pages

- Tutorial proposals on any of the topics above, as well as on topics at
the boundary between RV and other domains, are welcome. Accepted
tutorials will be allocated up to 15 pages in the conference
proceedings. Tutorial presentations will be at least 2 hours.

- Tool demonstration proposals should briefly introduce the problem
solved by the tool and give the outline of the demonstration. Tool
papers will be allocated 5 pages in the conference proceedings. A Best
Tool Award (200 Euro) will be offered.

Submitted tutorial and tool demonstration proposals will be evaluated by
the corresponding chairs, with the help of selected reviewers.

All accepted papers, including tutorial and tool papers, will appear in
the LNCS proceedings. Submitted papers must use the LNCS style. At
least one author of each accepted paper must attend RV'10 to present the
paper. Papers must be submitted electronically using the EasyChair
system. A link to the electronic submission page is available on the
RV'10 web page.
