Runtime verification (RV) is an approach to software verification which is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software and hardware system executions. Recently, RV has gained more consensus as an effective and promising approach to ensure software reliability, bridging a gap between formal verification, and conventional testing; monitoring a system during runtime execution offers additional opportunities for addressing error recovery, self-adaptation, and other issues that go beyond software reliability. The goal of VORTEX is to bring together researchers working on runtime verification for topics covering either theoretical, or practical aspects, or, preferably, both, with emphasis on object-oriented languages, and systems.

Call for Papers

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

  • behavioural types for RV
  • combination of static and dynamic analyses
  • industrial applications
  • language support for RV
  • monitor construction and synthesis techniques
  • monitoring concurrent/distributed systems
  • monitoring oriented programming
  • program adaptation
  • runtime enforcement, fault detection, recovery and repair
  • RV for safety and security
  • RV for the Internet of Things
  • specification formalisms and formal underpinning of RV
  • specification mining
  • tool development

Contributions will be formally reviewed by at least three reviewers, and selection will be based on originality, relevance, technical accuracy, and the potential to generate interesting discussions.

Submission Instructions

Submissions must be unpublished work, in English, formatted in PDF with acmart sigplan style, and are allowed to be position papers or surveys (max 6 pages), short papers (max 3 pages) presenting preliminary ongoing scientific work, or long papers (max 6 pages) providing more consolidated research contributions.

Papers must be submitted electronically via EasyChair.

Proceedings and Special Issue

Accepted papers will, upon agreement by the authors, be published in the ACM Digital Library. Depending on the quality of submissions, authors of selected papers will be invited after the workshop to submit an extended version for a special issue hosted by a prime journal in the field.
