Co-located with the 11th European Dependable Computing Conference (EDCC) 2015: http://edcc2015.lip6.fr


The way software is developed is changing. It must take into account multifaceted constraints like unpredictable markets, evolving customer requirements, pressures of shorter time-to-market, etc. At the same time, software is controlling critical functionalities in several domains like transportation, health care, manufacturing, and IT infrastructures. As a result, modern software systems require on one side adding frequently (daily or weakly) new features, functionalities, or new versions of software artifacts according to changing contexts, business opportunities, or customer’s feedbacks, on the other side ensuring their resilience – an ability of the system to persistently deliver its services in a dependable way even when facing changes, unforeseen failures and intrusions.

The SERENE 2015 workshop provides 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

  *   Incremental development processes for resilient systems;
  *   Requirements engineering & re-engineering for resilience;
  *   Frameworks, patterns and software architectures for resilience;
  *   Engineering of self-healing autonomic systems;
  *   Design of trustworthy and intrusion-safe systems;
  *   Resilience at run-time (mechanisms, reasoning and adaptation).

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;
  *   Resilient cyber-physical systems and infrastructures;
  *   Global aspects of resilience engineering: education, training and cooperation.


We welcome relevant contributions in the following forms:

  *   Technical papers describing original theoretical or practical work;
  *   Experience/Industry papers describing practitioner experience or field study, addressing an application domain and the lessons learned;
  *   PhD Forum papers describing objectives, methodology, and results at an early stage in research;
  *   Project papers describing goals and results of ongoing projects;
  *   Tool papers presenting new tools or new versions of existing tools that support the development of resilient systems.
