Resilient systems withstand, recover from, and adapt to disruptive changes with acceptable degradation in their provided services. Resilience is particularly remarkable for modern software and software-controlled systems, many of which are required to continually adapt their architecture and parameters in response to evolving requirements, customer feedback, new business needs, platform upgrades, etc. Despite frequent changes and disruptions, the 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 transportation, healthcare, energy production and e-government. Since modern software should be developed to cope with changes, unforeseen failures and malicious cyber-attacks efficiently, design for resilience is an increasingly important area of software engineering.
The SERENE workshop series has a long tradition of bringing together leading researchers and practitioners from academia and industry, to advance the state-of-the-art and to identify open challenges in the software engineering of resilient systems. Since 2015 SERENE has become a part of a major European dependability forum – EDCC. This year SERENE will be held before the main EDCC 2020 conference ).
The SERENE 2020 workshop will provide 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:
May 25, 2020 June 1, 2020 June 7, 2020 (extended)
June 29, 2020
July 15, 2020
The SERENE-2020 proceedings will be published to IEEE, and all submissions should conform to IEEE style specified at https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html.
In particular, submissions must adhere to the IEEE camera-ready two-column format.
Moreover, all submissions should describe, in English, original work that has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the program committee.
They will be evaluated based on originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop.
PDF versions of papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=serene2020
