Welcome to the 1st VORTEX Workshop on Runtime Verification

Runtime verification (RV) is an approach to software verification which is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software and hardware system executions.

In recent years RV has gained more and more consensus as an effective and promising approach to ensure software reliability, bridging a gap between formal verification, and conventional testing; furthermore, monitoring a system during runtime execution offers additional opportunities for addressing error recovery, self-adaptation, and other issues that go beyond software reliability. The goal of the first edition of this workshop is to bring together researchers working on RV for object-oriented languages, and systems, on topics covering either theoretical, or practical aspects, or, preferably, both. More specifically, topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following ones:

  • combination of static and dynamic analyses
  • industrial applications
  • monitor construction and synthesis techniques
  • monitoring concurrent/distributed systems
  • program adaptation
  • runtime enforcement, fault detection, recovery and repair
  • RV for safety and security
  • specification formalisms and formal underpinning of RV
  • specification mining
  • tool development

Depending on the quality and the overall number of accepted papers, after the workshop authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version for a special issue hosted by the online open-access Journal Frontiers in ICT (Specialty Formal Methods, http://journal.frontiersin.org/journal/all/section/formal-methods).

Accepted Papers

Title

Call for Papers

Contributions are solicited on Runtime Verification in the context of Object-Oriented Programming addressing open questions covering theoretical and/or practical aspects, presenting new implemented tools, proposing interesting new applications, or describing real case studies.

Submissions suggesting speculative new approaches, raising challenging issues, or focusing on problems deemed to be crucial for the research community are also welcome, as well as all contributions covering topics suitable for lively discussion at the workshop.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following ones:

  • combination of static and dynamic analyses
  • industrial applications
  • monitor construction and synthesis techniques
  • monitoring concurrent/distributed systems
  • program adaptation
  • runtime enforcement, fault detection, recovery and repair
  • RV for safety and security
  • specification formalisms and formal underpinning of RV
  • specification mining
  • tool development

Contributions will be formally reviewed by at least three reviewers, and selection will be based on originality, relevance, technical accuracy, and the potential to generate interesting discussions.

Submission Instructions

Submissions must be in English, in PDF format, and are limited to 6 pages in the ACM Proceedings Format. Papers must be submitted electronically via Easy Chair. PC members, except for the chairs, are allowed to submit papers, and any conflict of interest will be properly managed by excluding the involved PC members from the review and evaluation process.

Proceedings and Special Issue

Accepted papers will have the option of being published in the ACM Digital Library. Depending on the quality and the overall number of accepted papers, authors of selected papers will be invited after the workshop to submit an extended version for a special issue hosted by the online open-access Journal Frontiers in ICT Specialty Formal Methods.
