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:
May, 30th 2022
June, 6th 2022
June, 25th 2022
July, 3rd 2022
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.
We are in the process of negotiating the best option for the workshop proceedings. This information will be available soon at the workshop website. We request submissions to be prepared in the standard Springer LNCS conference format:
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.
