RV 2014: 14th International Conference on Runtime Verification

September 22 - September 25, 2014, Toronto, Canada



Runtime verification is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software and hardware system executions. Runtime verification techniques are important for system correctness, reliability, and robustness; they are complementary to conventional testing, and 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:

specification languages
specification mining
program instrumentation
monitor construction techniques
logging, recording, and replay
fault detection, localization, containment, recovery and repair
program steering and adaptation
metrics and statistical information gathering
combination of static and dynamic analyses
program execution visualization
monitoring techniques for safety/mission-critical systems
monitoring distributed systems, cloud services, and big data applications
monitoring security and privacy policies
Application areas of runtime verification include safety/mission-critical systems, enterprise and systems software, autonomous and reactive control systems, health management and diagnosis systems, and system security and privacy.
