Event


The construction of dependable and complex computer-based systems demands the interaction and involvement of industry and academy. Industry involvement is essential since it poses practical and challenging problems for academic researchers. Therefore, the main idea behind organizing the CCBS’09 is to provide a platform in which to discuss both theoretical and practical results relevant to the engineering of highly sophisticated and critical systems that are used in automotive, avionics, railway, naval, chemical, nuclear, manufacturing, and medical industries.

You are invited to submit a paper that documents research studies and applications related to the engineering of high-assurance systems in the aforementioned industries with special emphasis on using model-based design and testing paradigms. Papers reporting industrial experiences using methodologies and tools to manage the complexity of theses systems are especially welcome.

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. All accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings and will be indexed in major on-line archives (including DBLP). Extended and revised versions of selected papers will be also published by The International Journal of Critical Computer Based Systems (IJCCBS).

SCOPE

  • Engineering methods for high-assurance systems in real-time control applications
  • Safety Engineering methods for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
  • Usability Engineering methods for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)
  • Performance, dependability and security evaluation using analytical models, simulation or empirical approaches
  • Model-based software testing and formal methods (model checking, theorem proving)
  • Fault tolerant, resilient, reactive and reconfigurable architectures
  • Multi-formalism and multi-paradigm approaches
  • Novel approaches to safety assessment, hazard analysis and failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA), with special emphasis on immature domains
  • Business continuity planning: backup strategies and disaster recovery procedures
  • Model-based security engineering and design for security
  • Cost benefit optimization of design parameters, including genetic approaches
  • Measured data management, integration, fusion, correlation and reasoning for on-line diagnostics and prognostics of CBS
  • Statistical approaches for field data retrieval, filtering and analysis in the operational phase
  • Innovative applications, case studies and industrial experience reports (process control, biomedicine, X-by-wire, e-commerce, etc.)
  • Advances in dependability modelling formalisms (Fault Trees, Markov Chains, Petri Nets, etc.)
  • Fault/Attack-injection and design for testability
  • Software reliability, including design diversity and software rejuvenation
  • Systematic model based, model driven, co-modelling and concurrent engineering approaches
  • Computer based risk assessment, decision support and early warning systems
  • Technologies, methodologies and standards for the co-design of hardware-software embedded architectures
  • New structured and hybrid approaches for critical software engineering
  • Management of issues in off-the-shelf components integration for dependable systems
  • Middlewares and protocols for dependable service oriented and GRID applications
  • Organizational, procedural and ergonomic aspects of human machine interaction in critical CBS
  • Architectural Analysis Description Languages and Tool Supports
  • Engineering approaches based on AADL/MBE, UML/MDA and SysML
