[Apologizes for duplicates]
14th International Conference on
Runtime Verification
September 22 - 25, 2014
*Toronto, Canada*




Runtime verification is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software
and hardware system executions. Runtime verification techniques are crucial
for system correctness, reliability, and robustness; they are significantly
more powerful and versatile than conventional testing, and 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
   - specification mining
   - program instrumentation
   - monitor construction techniques
   - logging, recording, and replay
   - fault detection, localization, containment, recovery and repair
   - program steering and adaptation
   - metrics and statistical information gathering
   - combination of static and dynamic analyses
   - program execution visualization
   - monitoring techniques for safety/mission-critical systems
   - monitoring distributed systems, cloud services, and big data
   - monitoring security and privacy policies

Application areas of runtime verification include safety/mission-critical
systems, enterprise and systems software, autonomous and reactive control
systems, health management and diagnosis systems, and system security and

Technical Research Papers Track:

Technical research papers can be submitted in two categories: regular and
short papers. Papers in both categories will be reviewed by the conference
Program Committee. All accepted technical papers will appear in an
LNCS<http://www.springer.com/series/558> volume.
Submitted papers must use the LNCS
At least one author of each accepted paper must attend RV'14 to present the
paper. Papers must be submitted electronically using the

   - *Regular papers* (up to 15 pages) should present original unpublished
   results. Theoretical and experimental papers as well as papers on
   applications of runtime verification and case studies are all welcome. A
   non-monetary Best Paper Award will be given. A selection of accepted
   regular papers will be invited to appear in a special issue of the Springer
   Journal on Formal Methods in System Design.

   - *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 (10 minutes) and
   poster sessions.

Tool Demonstrations Track:

The aim of the RV 2014 tool demonstration track is to provide an
opportunity for researchers and practitioners to show and to discuss the
latest advances, experiences and challenges in devising and developing
reliable software tools for runtime verification. Tool demonstration papers
will be reviewed by the Tools Track Program Committee. All accepted tool
demonstration papers will appear in the conference proceedings LNCS volume.
Submitted papers must use the LNCS style. At least one author of each
accepted paper must attend RV'14 to present the paper. Papers must be
submitted electronically using the

Tool papers should meet the following criteria:

   - A tool paper should present a new tool, a new tool component or novel
   extensions to existing tools supporting runtime verification. Each
   submission should be original and not published previously in a tool paper
   - Each submission must not exceed 8 pages in the LNCS/Springer
   proceeding format, including all text, references and figures. The paper
   must be written in English and provided in PDF format.
   - Each submission must be accompanied at the time of the submission by a
   short screencast (between 5-10 minutes), with voice and overlay text
   commentary illustrating the demonstration of the tool (a link to it should
   be provided in the paper).
   - The paper must include information on tool availability, maturity,
   selected experimental results and it should provide a link to a website
   containing the theoretical background and user guide. Furthermore, we
   strongly encourage authors to make their tools and benchmarks available
   with their submission.
   - Each tool paper must include a script in an appendix (not included in
   the page count) describing how the demo will be conducted during the
   conference presentation with screenshots presenting step-by-step the tool's
   capabilities, highlighting the main characteristics and the usage.


Each submission will be reviewed by at least four members of the tool
demonstration track program committee. The evaluation criteria will include:

   - the presentation quality
   - the availability (possibly in a open-source format) of the software.
   - the relevance for the Runtime Verification audience
   - the technical soundness of the presented tool
   - the originality of the underlying ideas
