RADIANCE @ DSN and ToK Workshop #4

Published: Monday, 06 July 2015


The first edition of the International Workshop on Recent Advances in the DependabIlity AssessmeNt of Complex systEms (RADIANCE) occurred in the 22nd of June together with DSN 2015 and the organization of the event is quite happy to say that it was a very successful event: it was “sharing the spotlight” with other 3 workshops and 2 tutorials, and thus it was quite satisfactory to see that it attracted an average attendance of about 30 researchers.


The workshop started with a Keynote by Bradley Schmerl on “Challenges in Engineering Dependable Self-Adaptive System” (slides here). Bradley is a Senior Systems Scientist at the ISR-CMU and presented the work that his research group has been doing to make self-adaptive systems more dependable. The keynote attracted questions that promoted a very interesting discussion that paved the way for the ensuing technical sessions.

A total of 10 papers divided in four technical sessions: 1) Security and Dependability Analysis; 2) Agile Development and Natural Language Requirements; 3) Safety Assessment in Industrial Systems; and 4) Fault Injection for Complex Systems. The presentations showed novel techniques, some of them preliminary, which were able to foster the discussion and promote the transfer of knowledge among the participants.


The full program of the workshop can be found here and the papers will soon be available at the IEEEXplore.


Transfer of Knowledge Workshop #4

Taking advantage of a large number of DEVASSES researchers in Brazil, a ToK workshop was organized by Profs. Cecilia Rubira and Ariadne Carvalho at the University of Campinas (UNICAMP).


To get things started, Prof. Daniel Cordeiro (IME-USP) was invited to present a very interesting talk on “Deploying Large scale Service Compositions on the Cloud with the CHOReOS Enactment Engine“.


The workshop had time for each of the partners to present their recent research. Particularly, the students of UNICAMP had opportunity to present several ongoing works and receive feedback. There was also specific time to present the collaboration works that started with the DEVASSES secondments, with some them already concluded and resulting in publications.


The workshop had an average attendance of more than 20 researchers; the full list of presentations can be found here.


Together with the workshop there was a project management meeting where the partners of the project discussed the current status of the project and the next steps of the works.
