[PVS] RV 2012 Call for Papers

[Apologies for duplicate messages]


International Conference on Runtime Verification (RV 2012)


September 25 - 28, 2012 Istanbul, Turkey

at the Koc University Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations in Pera http://rv2012.ku.edu.tr/




Runtime verification is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software and hardware system executions. Runtime verification techniques are crucial for system correctness and reliability; 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 verification and debugging purposes, and after deployment for ensuring reliability, safety and security, and for providing fault containment and recovery. Topics of interest to the conference



- specification languages and formalisms for traces

- specification mining

- program instrumentation

- monitor construction techniques

- logging, recording, and replay

- fault detection, localization, recovery and repair

- program steering and adaptation

- metrics and statistical information gathering

- combination of static and dynamic analyses

- program execution visualization



Application areas of runtime verification include safety-critical systems ranging from enterprise and systems software, to autonomous and reactive control systems, to health management and diagnosis systems, to security.





The RV series of events started in 2001, as an annual workshop. The

RV'01 to RV'05 proceedings were published in ENTCS. Since 2006, the RV proceedings have been published in LNCS. In year 2010, RV became an international conference. Links to past RV events can be found at the permanent URL http://runtime-verification.org.






RV will have three paper categories: regular and short papers, and tool demonstration papers. Papers in all categories will be reviewed by the conference Program Committee.


- Regular papers (up to 15 pages) should present original unpublished results. Applications of runtime verification are particularly welcome. A Best Paper Award will be offered.


- Short papers (up to 5 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 short talk (5-10 minutes) and poster sessions.


- Tool demonstration papers (up to 5 pages) should briefly introduce the problem solved by the tool and give the outline of the demonstration. A Best Tool Award will be offered.


All accepted papers, including short papers and tool papers, will appear in the LNCS proceedings. Submitted papers must use the LNCS style. At least one author of each accepted paper must attend RV'12 to present the paper. Papers must be submitted electronically using the EasyChair system.

A link to the electronic submission page will be made available on the

RV'12 web page.
