2nd International Workshop on
Software Engineering for Resilient Systems
15-16 April 2010, Birkbeck College, London, United Kingdom
Organized by the ERCIM working group SERENE

Call for Papers

As society's dependence on complex software systems increases, so does the
need for methods and tools that ensure resilience to faults, errors and
malicious attacks.  Modern open and distributed architectures are able to
adapt to harmful events. However, the engineering of systems that exploit
flexibility while remaining predictable is a challenge that demands
attention from scientists and engineers across domains. The SERENE 2010
Workshop provides a forum for researchers  and practitioners to exchange
reports on advances in all areas relevant to this challenge, including,
but not limited to:

- Modelling of resilience properties: formal & semi-formal techniques -
Requirements, software engineering & re-engineering for resilience -
Verification and validation of resilient systems
- Resilience prediction and experimental measurement
- Error, fault and exception handling in the software life-cycle
- Frameworks, patterns and software architectures for resilience
- Resilience at run-time: metadata, mechanisms, reasoning and adaptation -
Engineering of self-healing autonomic systems
- CASE tools for developing resilient systems

We welcome relevant contributions in the following forms:
- Technical papers describing original theoretical or practical work;
  advanced work-in-progress papers may also be considered.
- Experience/Industry papers describing practitioner experience or
  case studies, addressing the application domain and lessons learned.
- PhD Forum papers describing objectives, methodology, and results
  at an early stage in research. Special sessions will provide an
  opportunity to discuss PhD work and obtain constructive advice
  from experienced advisors.
- Project papers: Short papers describing goals and results of ongoing
  projects related to SERENE topics are welcome.
- Tool papers: Papers presenting new tools or new versions of
  the existing tools that support the development of resilient systems.

Subject to confirmation, SERENE 2010 will be held in cooperation
with ACM SIGSOFT and accepted papers will be published
in the ACM Digital Library.

Abstract submission (optional) 14 December 2009
Submissions due  21 December 2009
Notification of acceptance   15 February 2010
Camera ready copy due by  12 March 2010

Abstracts and papers are submitted via Easychair (please check
the Submission page on the SERENE 2010 website). Your paper must:
- be formatted according to the ACM Proceedings Guidelines
- respect page limits: 10 pages for technical papers; 6 pages for all
others; - be submitted as PDF.

All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three independent reviewers,
assessed for relevance to the workshop topics, technical soundness,
innovation, scientific and presentation quality. Submission of a paper
constitutes a commitment to attend and present the paper if accepted.

Allied to the Workshop, we will hold a 2-day spring school for students
and early-career researchers on engineering aspects of resilience and
self-* systems, on 13-14 April 2010 at Birkbeck College. For further
information, please contact the School's Director, Henry Muccini
(muccini at di.univaq.it).

SERENE 2010 is organised by the ERCIM Working Group on Software
Engineering for Resilient Systems (serene.uni.lu).
