- TITLE: Reactive Systems: From Requirements to Verifiable Models to Code

- ABSTRACT: Software systems are complicated, and the scientific and engineering methodologies for software development are relatively young. We need robust methods for handling the ever-increasing complexity of software systems that are now in every corner of our lives. In this talk I will focus on asynchronous event-based reactive systems and show how we start from the requirements, move to actor-based models, verify the models for correctness, and build executable codes based on that. I show how we can use the architecture design and sequence diagrams to build the behavioral model, and the state diagrams to write the properties of interest, and then use model checking to check the properties. We then refine the verified models to develop the executable code. The natural mappings among the models for requirements, the formal models, and the executable code improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the approach. It also helps in runtime monitoring and adaptation.


During the last three decades, automation in internet services and applications development has gone mainstream. Software development teams strive to automate as much of the software development activities as possible. Automation helps, in fact, to reduce development time and cost, as well as to concentrate knowledge by bringing quality into every step of the development process. Realizing high-quality internet services and applications requires producing software that is efficient, error-free, cost-effective, and that satisfies customer requirements. Thus, one of the most crucial factors impacting software quality concerns not only the automation of the development process but also the ability to verify the outcomes of each process activity and the goodness of the resulting software product as well.

This JISA Thematic Series aims at new automated software development methods and techniques, compositional verification theories, integration architectures, flexible and dynamic composition, and automated planning mechanisms.

We seek contributions at various levels: from foundational aspects to concrete application experiments; from modeling to verification and analysis; from deployment to execution; from (industrial) experience papers and case-studies, to tool demonstrations and visionary papers; papers describing novel research contributions and innovative applications are of particular interest
