Resilient systems withstand, recover from, and adapt to disruptive changes with acceptable degradation in their provided services. Resilience is particularly important in 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 and platform upgrades. Resilience also has to cover extra-functional behavior: despite frequent changes and disruptions, including unforeseen failures and malicious cyber attacks, systems are expected to function correctly and reliably. This is particularly important for critical services, , e.g., in transportation, healthcare, energy production and e-government. Design for resilience is an increasingly important area of software engineering; new deployment platforms as edge and fog computing and blockchains/distributed ledgers facilitate new resilience techniques, but also pose new challenges.
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 together with the main EDCC 2022 conference.
The SERENE 2022 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:

All submissions should describe, in English, original work that has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere.
Papers will be evaluated based on originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop.
PDF versions of the submissions should be submitted electronically via EasyChair.
Please note that the review process is double-blind, so papers submitted for consideration should not include the names of the authors and their affiliations.
EDCC 2022 workshops will be published in Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS), abstracted and indexed in, among others, SCOPUS and DBLP.
Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers.
Corresponding authors of accepted papers, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, should expect that they will have to complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form.

A Perspective on Three Decades of Software Robustness Assessment
Nuno Laranjeiro, University of Coimbra, Portugal
Robustness is the degree to which a certain system or component can operate correctly in the presence of invalid inputs or stressful environmental conditions. With the increasing complexity and widespread use of computer systems, obtaining assurances regarding their robustness has become of vital importance. This talk discusses the state of the art on software robustness assessment, with emphasis on key aspects like types of systems being evaluated, assessment techniques used, the target of the techniques, the types of faults used, and how system behavior is classified. Gaps and open challenges related with robustness assessment are also presented. The talk concludes with a detailed view of the application of robustness testing techniques to REST services.

Nuno Laranjeiro received the PhD degree in 2012 from the University of Coimbra, Portugal, where he currently is an Assistant Professor. His research focuses on dependable and secure software services and he currently leads the Software and Systems Engineering group (https://www.cisuc.uc.pt/en/sse) at the Centre for Informatics and Systems of the University of Coimbra (CISUC). His research interests include experimental dependability evaluation, fault injection, robustness and security of software services, web services interoperability, enterprise application integration, blockchain, and integration of machine learning in software engineering processes. He has contributed, as an author, reviewer and program committee member, to leading conferences and journals in the dependability and services computing areas,. Nuno has been involved, in various roles, in the organization of several international events, including multiple editions of the International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering, the Dependable and Secure Services Workshop/Track (as main chair) jointly organised with the IEEE World Congress on Services. He participated in international research projects, including several H2020 projects (e.g., ADVANCE, DEVASSES, ATMOSPHERE, EUBrasilCloudFORUM) and FP7 projects (CRITICAL STEP, CECRIS), and he is currently mostly involved in developing new techniques towards more reliable cloud systems, developing techniques for evaluating the reliability and security of blockchain smart contracts, and using machine learning techniques for software fault and vulnerability detection.
