********************************************************************* SETTA
2018, Call for Papers 4th International Symposium on Dependable Software
Engineering: Theories, Tools and Applications Beijing, China, September 4 -
6, 2018 <http://lcs.ios.ac.cn/setta2018/> (Co-located with CONCUR, FORMATS,
and QEST as part of CONFESTA)
*ABOUT* SETTA aims to bring together international researchers and
practitioners in the field of software technology. Its focus is on formal
methods and advanced software technologies, especially for engineering
complex, large-scale artifacts like cyber-physical systems, networks of
things, enterprise systems, or cloud-based services. Contributions relating
to formal methods or integrating them with software engineering, as well as
papers advancing scalability or widening the scope of rigorous methods to
new design goals are especially welcome. As part of CONFESTA (
http://confesta2018.csp.escience.cn/ ), SETTA 2018 will be co-located with
CONCUR, FORMATS and QUEST. *TOPICS* Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to: - Requirements specification and analysis - Formalisms for
modeling, design and implementation - Model checking, theorem proving, and
decision procedures - Scalable approaches to formal system analysis -
Formal approaches to simulation and testing - Integration of formal methods
into software engineering practice - Contract-based engineering of
components, systems, and systems of systems - Formal and engineering
aspects of software evolution and maintenance - Parallel and multicore
programming - Embedded, real-time, hybrid, and cyber-physical systems -
Mixed-critical applications and systems - Formal aspects of
service-oriented and cloud computing - Safety, reliability, robustness, and
fault-tolerance - Dependability of smart software and systems - Empirical
analysis techniques and integration with formal methods - Applications and
industrial experience reports - Tool integration *Submission* Authors are
invited to submit papers on original research, industrial applications, or
position papers proposing challenges in fundamental research and
technology. The latter two types of submissions are expected to contribute
to the development of formal methods either by substantiating the
advantages of integrating formal methods into the development cycle or
through delineating need for research by demonstrating weaknesses of
existing technologies, especially when addressing new application domains.
Submissions can take the form of either regular or short papers. Short
papers can discuss ongoing research at an early stage, including PhD
projects. Regular Papers should not exceed 16 pages and short papers should
not exceed 6 pages in LNCS format. The proceedings will be published as a
volume in Springer's LNCS series. Papers should be submitted electronically
through the EasyChair submission web page <
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=setta2018 >. All submissions must
be in the PDF format. Papers should be written in English. Submitted papers
must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Accepted
papers must be presented at the conference. *IMPORTANT DATES* - Abstract
