CREST 2019 4th Workshop on Formal Reasoning about Causation, Responsibility, and Explanations in Science and Technology
Today’s IT systems, and the interactions among them, become more and more complex. Power grid blackouts, airplane crashes, failures of medical devices, cruise control devices out of control are just a few examples of incidents due to component failures and unexpected interactions of subsystems under conditions that have not been anticipated during system design and testing. The failure of one component may entail a cascade of failures in other components; several components may also fail independently. In such cases, determining the root cause(s) of a system-level failure and elucidating the exact scenario that led to the failure is today a complex and tedious task that requires significant expertise.
Formal approaches for automated causality analysis, fault localization, explanation of events, and blaming have been proposed independently by several communities — in particular, AI, concurrency, model-based diagnosis, formal method — and the work on these topics has significantly gained speed during the last years.
The goals of this workshop series are to bring together and foster exchange between researchers from the different communities and practitioners, and the presentation and discussion of recent advances in the field.
