SERENE 2019 — Call for papers

11th International Workshop on Software Engineering for Resilient Systems
17 September 2019, Naples, Italy


Co-located with the 15th European Dependable Computing Conference (EDCC)

Abstract Submission due: 7 June 2019
Paper Submission due: 14 June 2019


Resilient systems withstand, recover from, and adapt to disruptive changes
acceptable degradation in their provided services. Resilience is
important for modern software and software-controlled systems, many of
are required to continually adapt their architecture and parameters in
to evolving requirements, customer feedback, new business needs, platform
upgrades, etc.
Despite frequent changes and disruptions, software is expected
to function correctly and reliably. This is particularly important for
software systems
that provide services which are critical to society, e.g., in
healthcare, energy production and e-government. Since modern software
be developed to efficiently cope with changes, unforeseen failures and
cyber attacks, design for resilience is an increasingly important area of

The SERENE workshop series has a long tradition of bringing together
researchers and practitioners from academia and industry, to advance the
state-of-the-art and to identify open challenges in the software
of resilient systems. Since 2015 SERENE has become a part of a major
dependability forum – EDCC. This year SERENE will be held before the main
EDCC 2019 conference (http://edcc.dependability.org).

The SERENE 2019 workshop will provide a forum for researchers and
to exchange ideas on advances in all areas relevant to software engineering
resilient systems, including, but not limited to:

Development of resilient systems
- Engineering processes for resilient systems;
- Requirements engineering & re-engineering for resilience;
- Frameworks, patterns and software architectures for resilience;
- Engineering of self-adaptive systems;
- Design of trustworthy and intrusion-safe systems;
- Resilience at run-time (mechanisms, reasoning and adaptation);
- Resilience & dependability (resilience vs. robustness, dependable vs.

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;
- Resilience for data-driven systems (e.g., big data-based adoption and
- Resilient cyber-physical systems and infrastructures;
- Global aspects of resilience engineering: education, training and


The SERENE-2019 proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS
and all submissions should conform to the Springer LNCS style specified at


and should describe, in English, original work that has not been published
submitted for publication elsewhere. PDF versions of papers should be
electronically via EasyChair


We welcome relevant contributions in the following forms:
- Technical papers describing original theoretical or practical work (up to
15 pages);
- Experience/Industry papers describing practitioner experience or field
  addressing an application domain and the lessons learned (up to 7 pages);
- PhD Forum papers describing objectives, methodology, and results at an
early stage
  of research (up to 7 pages);
- Project papers describing goals and results of ongoing projects (up to 7
- Tool papers presenting new tools or new versions of existing tools that
support the
  development of resilient systems (up to 7 pages);
- Position papers on challenges and emerging trends in resilience (up to 7

All submissions will be peer reviewed by three members of the program
They will be evaluated on the basis of originality, contribution to the
technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop.
