1st Workshop on Applied Software Reliability
(In Conjunction with the International Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks)
Monday, June 26, 2006
Sheraton Society Hill, Philadelphia, PA, USA
Research on software reliability has been active for several decades now and has produced massive amount of literature to explore new ideas, and system prototypes to experiment with the proposed ideas. Notwithstanding this proficiency, only in a few instances has research work found its way into industrial applications. This apparent uncoordination is exacerbated by the increasing need for quality and dependability guarantees in the more and more computerized modern world.
The Workshop on Applied Software Reliability (WASR) is the first workshop dedicated to addressing the increasing gap between practitioners and researchers involved in the development of mission critical, software-intensive systems. The workshop will provide a forum for detailed exchange of ideas, techniques, and experiences with the goal of understanding the industry's trend towards fielding reliable applications and providing feedback on existing and potential approaches.
This workshop will focus on exploring answers to key research questions, including:
- What are the reliability requirements of current and future applications?
- What are the important challenges and risks?
- What are the currently used approaches to address reliability issues in industrial applications and what is needed?
- What are the promising reliability solutions in a short-mid term time frame?
- What are the open research problems?
Researchers and practitioners from academia, industry, and the government are welcome and encouraged to participate. We are soliciting contributions in application areas including, but not limited to:
- Database applications
- Scientific applications
- Telecommunication applications
- Internet applications
- Embedded applications
- Space applications
Workshop formatThis one-day workshop will be divided into 3 subsequent sessions organized by topic. There will be both invited papers and solicited papers. Each session will consist of 3 paper presentations (20 minutes each) plus one panel discussion (30 minutes). Panelists will include paper presenters and invited speakers.
Submission informationThe submission deadline was March 26, 2006, and all authors have been notified of the acceptance of their submissions. Please see the advance program for the workshop program.
