Call for Papers:

During the last three decades, automation in software development has gone mainstream. Software development teams strive to automate as much of the software development activities as possible, spanning requirements specification, system modeling, code generation, testing, deployment, verification, as well as release phases, project status reporting and system maintenance. Automation helps 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 software systems requires producing software that is efficient, error-free, cost-effective, and that satisfies evolving 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 becomes particularly true these days when we are, and will be, increasingly surrounded by a virtually infinite number of software artifacts – often underspecified – that can be composed to build new applications. This situation radically changes the way software will be produced and used:

  • software is increasingly produced according to a certain goal, that can change during the system’s execution, and by integrating existing software;
  • the focus of software production is then on the ability to perform automated reasoning to achieve software integration and development that can be kept always correct-by-construction via static and dynamic verification.

This calls for automated software development methods and techniques, compositional verification theories, integration architectures, as well as, automated flexible and dynamic composition, and development mechanisms. ASYDE 2023 aims to provide a forum to share and discuss innovative contributions to research and practice related to novel software engineering approaches to automated and verifiable development of software systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Automated software development, verification and integration, for example, Automated synthesis of software integration code, Formal methods for automated software development, Automated and verifiable software development, Software quality assurance for automated software development
  • Specification, architecture, and design of software and verification models
  • Description and validation of Non-functional properties of software
  • Dynamic verification and testing
  • Correct-by-construction software development
  • Compositional theories for software development and its (dynamic) verification
  • Service-oriented and Component-based software development
  • Serverless-based systems development
  • Model-driven software development
  • Microservices, for example, Formal specification of (micro)services, Formal models for microservices, Methods and tools for (semi)-automatically migrating monolithic systems to component-based or microservice-based systems
  • Automated planning methods
  • Machine learning and AI techniques
  • Automatic methods for the development and verification of smart contracts
