*RV 2017*

*Call for Papers and Tutorials*

          The 17th International Conference on Runtime Verification

          September 13-16, Seattle, WA, USA


rv2017 at easychair.org

Runtime verification is concerned with the monitoring and analysis of the
runtime behaviour of software and hardware systems. Runtime verification
techniques are crucial for system correctness, reliability, and robustness;
they provide an additional level of rigor and effectiveness compared to
conventional testing, and are generally 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, but are not limited to:

   - specification languages
   - monitor construction techniques
   - program instrumentation
   - logging, recording, and replay
   - combination of static and dynamic analysis
   - specification mining and machine learning over runtime traces
   - monitoring techniques for concurrent and distributed systems
   - runtime checking of privacy and security policies
   - statistical model checking
   - metrics and statistical information gathering
   - program/system execution visualization
   - fault localization, containment, recovery and repair
   - integrated vehicle health management (IVHM)

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

We welcome contributions exploring the combination of runtime verification
techniques with machine learning and static analysis. Whilst these are
highlight topics, papers falling into these categories will not be treated
differently from other contributions.

An overview of previous RV conferences and earlier workshops can be found
at: http://www.runtime-verification.org.

RV 2017 will be held September 13-16 in Seattle, WA, USA. RV 2017 will
feature a tutorial day (September 13), and three conference days (September

General Information on Submissions

All papers and tutorials will appear in the conference proceedings in an
LNCS volume. Submitted papers and tutorials must use the LNCS/Springer
style detailed here:


Papers must be original work and not be submitted for publication
elsewhere. Papers must be written in English and submitted electronically
(in PDF format) using the EasyChair submission page here:


The page limitations mentioned below include all text and figures, but
exclude references. Additional details omitted due to space limitations may
be included in a clearly marked appendix, that will be reviewed at the
discretion of reviewers, but not included in the proceedings.

At least one author of each accepted paper and tutorial must attend RV 2017
to present.
Paper Submissions

There are three categories of papers which can be submitted: regular, short
or tool papers. Papers in each category will be reviewed by at least 3
members of the Program Committee.

   - *Regular Papers* (up to 15 pages, not including references) should
   present original unpublished results. We welcome theoretical papers, system
   papers, papers describing domain-specific variants of RV, and case studies
   on runtime verification.
   - *Short Papers* (up to 6 pages, not including references) 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.
   - *Tool Demonstration Papers* (up to 8 pages, not including references)
   should present a new tool, a new tool component, or novel extensions to
   existing tools supporting runtime verification. 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.

The Program Committee of RV 2017 will give a best paper award, and 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
Tutorial Submissions

Tutorials are two-to-three-hour presentations on a selected topic.
Additionally, tutorial presenters will be offered to publish a paper of up
to 20 pages in the LNCS conference proceedings, not including references.

A proposal for a tutorial must contain the subject of the tutorial, a
proposed timeline, a note on previous similar tutorials (if applicable) and
the differences to this incarnation, and a brief biography of the
presenter. The proposal should not exceed 2 pages.
RV-CuBES: A Workshop Replacement for the Competition

The Runtime Verification Competition will not be running in 2017. In its
place a Workshop is being organised to discuss the future of the
competition and showcase existing Runtime Verification tools. Please see
the relevant page <http://rv2017.cs.manchester.ac.uk/rv-cubes/> on the
conference website for details.
