RV 2020: 20th International Conference on Runtime Verification

October 6 – October 9, 2020

Virtual Conference




  *   RV’20 registration site is open – participation to the conference is free!
     *   https://rv20.ait.ac.at/registration/
  *   RV’20 is fully virtual this year
  *   October 9 is dedicated to the special topic “RV for Autonomy” with a panel discussion



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 for monitoring
  *   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
  *   metrics and statistical information gathering
  *   program/system execution visualization
  *   fault localization, containment, recovery and repair
  *   dynamic type checking and assurance cases
  *   runtime verification for autonomy and runtime assurance

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