The 5th International Workshop on Software Faults (IWSF 2021) and 3rd Software Hardware Interaction Faults (SHIFT 2021) co-located with The 32st Annual IEEE International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2021) Virtual conference 
25-28 Oct 2021 

*** SHIFT & IWSF 2021 will be virtual *** 

ISSRE 2021, such as its workshops, will be a full virtual conference. Authors of accepted workshop papers are expected to give a remote talk, with no in-person attendance.

With the increasing use of software systems comes the need for better software quality control techniques. Software quality is a broad concept that has many manifestations in areas like software reliability, software security, software testing, software maintenance, and so on. These areas share the common objective of preventing, detecting, and correcting faults. Yet, the concept of faults, despite its importance, is marked by considerable confusion. The terminology in the field is not coherent. How we group faults and relate them to each other conceptually and from a diagnostic and solution perspective differs. 

This edition of the workshop will build on the success of the three first editions that were attended by more than 60 participants. We will continue to look at specific reliability issues of software faults, defects, anomalies or bugs, for a wide variety of industries and types of systems with the goal to identify similarities, differences in processes, categorizations, diagnostics and solutions. 

As part of this edition, we will continue to put a special emphasis on emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, IoT, cyber-physical systems and so on. 

Topics of interest include: 

- Relationship between run-time crashes and fault types 
- Relationship between faults, defects, anomalies and bugs 
- Fault diagnosis techniques across industry sectors 
- Fault management processes 
- Domain specific faults 
- Artificial intelligence and fault detection and prediction 
- Anomaly detection in execution trace/run time logs 
- Metrics and measurements, and estimation 
- Supporting tools and automation 
- Faults in emerging domains such as cloud computing and IoT 
- Industry best practices
