RV 2017

*Call for Papers and Tutorials*

           The 17th International Conference on Runtime Verification

           September 13-16, Seattle, WA, USA

http://rv2017.cs.manchester.ac.uk <http://rv2017.cs.manchester.ac.uk/>

Runtime verification is concerned with the monitoring and analysis of
the runtime behaviour of software and hardware systems. Runtime
verification techniques are crucial for system correctness, reliability,
and robustness; they provide an additional level of rigor and
effectiveness compared to conventional testing, and are generally more
practical than exhaustive formal verification. Runtime verification can
be used prior to deployment, for testing, verification, and debugging
purposes, and after deployment for ensuring reliability, safety, and
security and for providing fault containment and recovery as well as
online system repair.

Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:

  * specification languages
  * monitor construction techniques
  * program instrumentation
  * logging, recording, and replay
  * combination of static and dynamic analysis
  * specification mining and machine learning over runtime traces
  * monitoring techniques for concurrent and distributed systems
  * runtime checking of privacy and security policies
  * statistical model checking
  * metrics and statistical information gathering
  * program/system execution visualization
  * fault localization, containment, recovery and repair
  * integrated vehicle health management (IVHM)

Application areas of runtime verification include cyber-physical
systems, safety/mission-critical systems, enterprise and systems
software, autonomous and reactive control systems, health management and
diagnosis systems, and system security and privacy.

We welcome contributions exploring the combination of runtime
verification techniques with machine learning and static analysis.
Whilst these are highlight topics, papers falling into these categories
will not be treated differently from other contributions.

An overview of previous RV conferences and earlier workshops can be
found at: http://www.runtime-verification.org.

RV 2017 will be held September 13-16 in Seattle, WA, USA. RV 2017 will
feature a tutorial day (September 13), and three conference days
(September 14-16).

  * Rodrigo Fonseca <http://cs.brown.edu/%7Erfonseca/>, Brown
    University, USA
  * Vlad Levin and Jakob Lichtenberg
    <https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/hardware/drivers/devtest/tools-for-verifying-drivers>,
    Microsoft, USA
  * Andreas Zeller <https://www.st.cs.uni-saarland.de/zeller/>, Saarland
    University, Germany


    General Information on Submissions

All papers and tutorials will appear in the conference proceedings in an
LNCS volume. Submitted papers and tutorials must use the LNCS/Springer
style detailed here:

http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

Papers must be original work and not be submitted for publication
elsewhere. Papers must be written in English and submitted
electronically (in PDF format) using the EasyChair submission page here:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rv17

The page limitations mentioned below include all text and figures, but
exclude references. Additional details omitted due to space limitations
may be included in a clearly marked appendix, that will be reviewed at
the discretion of reviewers, but not included in the proceedings.

At least one author of each accepted paper and tutorial must attend RV
2017 to present.


    Paper Submissions

There are three categories of papers which can be submitted: regular,
short or tool papers. Papers in each category will be reviewed by at
least 3 members of the Program Committee.

  * *Regular Papers* (up to 15 pages, not including references) should
    present original unpublished results. We welcome theoretical papers,
    system papers, papers describing domain-specific variants of RV, and
    case studies on runtime verification.
  * *Short Papers* (up to 6 pages, not including references) may present
    novel but not necessarily thoroughly worked out ideas, for example
    emerging runtime verification techniques and applications, or
    techniques and applications that establish relationships between
    runtime verification and other domains.
  * *Tool Demonstration Papers* (up to 8 pages, not including
    references) should present a new tool, a new tool component, or
    novel extensions to existing tools supporting runtime verification.
    The paper must include information on tool availability, maturity,
    selected experimental results and it should provide a link to a
    website containing the theoretical background and user guide.
    Furthermore, we strongly encourage authors to make their tools and
    benchmarks available with their submission.

The Program Committee of RV 2017 will give a best paper award, and a
selection of accepted regular papers will be invited to appear in a
special issue of the Springer Journal on Formal Methods in System Design
<http://link.springer.com/journal/10703>.


    Tutorial Submissions

Tutorials are two-to-three-hour presentations on a selected topic.
Additionally, tutorial presenters will be offered to publish a paper of
up to 20 pages in the LNCS conference proceedings, not including references.

A proposal for a tutorial must contain the subject of the tutorial, a
proposed timeline, a note on previous similar tutorials (if applicable)
and the differences to this incarnation, and a brief biography of the
presenter. The proposal should not exceed 2 pages.


    RV-CuBES: A Workshop Replacement for the Competition

The Runtime Verification Competition will not be running in 2017. In its
place a Workshop is being organised to discuss the future of the
competition and showcase existing Runtime Verification tools. Please see
the relevant page <http://rv2017.cs.manchester.ac.uk/rv-cubes/> on the
conference website for details.
