 Subject: RV 2016, Sept 23-30 2016, Madrid, Spain - 1st Call for Papers and Tutorials
 RV 2016
 16th International Conference on Runtime Verification
 September 23-30, Madrid, Spain
 http://rv2016.imag.fr <http://rv2016.imag.fr/>


 Runtime verification is concerned with monitoring and analysis of
 software and hardware system executions. Runtime verification
 techniques are crucial for system correctness, reliability, and
 robustness; they are significantly more powerful and versatile than
 conventional testing, and 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:
 - specification languages
 - specification mining
 - program instrumentation
 - monitor construction techniques
 - logging, recording, and replay
 - runtime enforcement, fault detection, localization, containment,
   recovery and repair 
 - program steering and adaptation
 - metrics and statistical information gathering
 - combination of static and dynamic analyses
 - program execution visualization
 - monitoring techniques for safety/mission-critical systems
 - monitoring distributed systems, cloud services, and big data
 - monitoring security and privacy policies
 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.

 Invited Speakers

 The program of RV 2016 will feature invited talks from:
 Gul Agha (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA)
 Oded Maler (CNRS and University of Grenoble-Alpes, France)
 Fred B. Schneider (Cornell University, USA)


 RV 2016 will be held September 23-30 in Madrid, Spain. RV 2016 will
 feature the first summer school on Runtime Verification (September
 23-25), two workshop days (September 26-25), and three conference
 days (September 28-30).

 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. At least one author of each accepted paper and
 tutorial must attend RV 2016 to present the paper. Papers must be
 written in English and submitted electronically (in PDF format) using
 the EasyChair system. The below page limitations 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.

 Research Papers Track

 Research papers can be submitted in two categories: regular and short
 papers. Papers in both categories will be reviewed by at least 3
 members of the Program Committee.

 Regular Papers (up to 15 pages) should present original unpublished
 results. Theoretical papers, system and application papers as well as
 case studies on runtime verification are all welcome.

 The Program Committee of RV 2015 will give a best paper award. A
 selection of accepted regular papers will be invited to appear in a
 special issue of the Springer Journal on Formal Methods in System

 Short Papers (up to 6 pages) 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. Accepted short papers will be
 presented in special talk (15 minutes) and poster sessions.

 Tool Papers Track

 The aim of the RV 2016 tool track is to provide an opportunity for
 researchers and practitioners to show and to discuss the latest
 advances, experiences and challenges in devising and developing
 reliable software tools for runtime verification. All tool papers
 will be reviewed by at least 3 members of the Tool Committee. An
 author of each accepted tool paper should give a 15-20 minutes
 demonstration during the conference.
 All tool papers 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.

 We encourage tool papers to include a script in an appendix (not
 included in the page count) describing how the demo will be conducted
 during the conference presentation with screenshots presenting
 step-by-step the tool’s capabilities, highlighting the main
 characteristics and the usage.
 Tool papers can be submitted into two categories: 
 Regular Tool Papers (up to 8 pages). A tool paper in this category
 should present a new tool, a new tool component or significant and
 novel extensions to existing tools supporting runtime
 verification. Each submission should be original and not published
 previously in a tool paper form.

 Tool Exhibition Papers (up to 4 pages). A tool paper in this category
 can have been previously published. A tool paper in this category
 should be oriented towards the tool usage and is an opportunity for
 the developers to present them at RV 2016.

 Tutorial Track

 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.
 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 biography
 of the presenter. The proposal must not exceed 2 pages. Tutorial
 proposals will be reviewed by the Program Committee.
