RV 2017

*Call for Papers and Tutorials*

           The 17th International Conference on Runtime Verification

           September 13-16, Seattle, WA, USA

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).

    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:


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:


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 

    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.
