Submission deadline in 2 months: RV 2010 at MaltaEric | March 30, 2010
Just in case you did not know yet: RV is becoming a conference. Submissions are due June 1st.
Runtime verification (RV) is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software or hardware system executions. The field is often referred to under different names, such as runtime verification, runtime monitoring, runtime checking, runtime reflection, runtime analysis, dynamic analysis, symbolic dynamic analysis, trace analysis, log file analysis, etc. RV can be used for many purposes, such as program understanding, systems usage understanding, security or safety policy monitoring,
debugging, testing, verification and validation, fault protection, behavior modification (e.g., recovery), etc. A running system can be abstractly regarded as a generator of execution traces, i.e., sequences of relevant states or events. Traces can be processed in various ways, e.g., checked against formalized specifications, analyzed with special algorithms, visualized, etc.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- program instrumentation techniques
- specification languages for writing monitors
- extraction of monitors from specifications; APIs for writing monitors
- programming language constructs for monitoring
- model-based monitoring and reconfiguration
- the use of aspect oriented programming for dynamic analysis
- algorithmic solutions to minimize runtime monitoring impact
- combination of static and dynamic analysis; full program verification based on runtime verification
- intrusion detection, security policies, policy enforcement
- log file analysis
- model-based test oracles
- observation-based debugging techniques
- fault detection and recovery, model-based integrated health management and diagnosis
- program steering and adaptation
- dynamic concurrency analysis
- dynamic specification mining
- metrics and statistical information gathered during runtime
- program execution visualization
The RV series of events started in 2001, as an annual workshop. The RV’01 to RV’05 proceedings were published in ENTCS. Since 2006, the RV proceedings have been published in LNCS. Starting with year 2010, RV is an international conference. Links to past RV events can be found at the permanent URL http://runtime-verification.org.
