      International Conference on Runtime Verification (RV 2011)
September 27 - 30, 2011
Berkeley, California, USA

Runtime verification (RV) is concerned with monitoring and
analysis of software or hardware system executions. The field is
often referred to under different names, such as runtime
verification, runtime monitoring, runtime checking, runtime
reflection, runtime analysis, dynamic analysis, runtime symbolic
analysis, trace analysis, log file analysis, etc. RV can be used
for many purposes, such as security or safety policy monitoring,
debugging, testing, verification, validation, profiling, fault
protection, behavior modification (e.g., recovery), etc. A
running system can be abstractly regarded as a generator of
execution traces, i.e., sequences of relevant states or
events. Traces can be processed in various ways, e.g., checked
against formal specifications, analyzed with special algorithms,
visualized, etc.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* program instrumentation techniques
* specification languages for writing monitors
* dynamic program slicing
* record-and-replay
* trace simplification for debugging
* extraction of monitors from specifications
* APIs for writing monitors
* programming language constructs for monitoring
* model-based monitoring and reconfiguration
* the use of aspect oriented programming for dynamic analysis
* algorithmic solutions to minimize runtime monitoring impact
* combination of static and dynamic analysis
* full program verification based on runtime verification
* intrusion detection, security policies, policy enforcement
* log file analysis
* model-based test oracles
* observation-based debugging techniques
* fault detection and recovery
* model-based integrated health management and diagnosis
* program steering and adaptation
* dynamic concurrency analysis
* dynamic specification mining
* metrics and statistical information gathered during runtime
* program execution visualization
* data structure repair for error recovery
* parallel algorithms for efficient monitoring
* monitoring for effective fault localization and program repair

The RV series of events started in 2001, as an annual workshop.
The RV'01 to RV'05 proceedings were published in ENTCS. Since
2006, the RV proceedings have been published in LNCS. In year
2010, RV became an international conference. Links to past RV
events can be found at the permanent URL: <>


Talk titles will be made available on RV 2011 web page.


RV will have two research paper categories: regular and short
papers. Papers in both categories will be reviewed by the
conference Program Committee.

* Regular papers (up to 15 pages) should present original
unpublished results. Applications of runtime verification are
particularly welcome. A Best Paper Award (USD 300) will be
offered. Selected papers will be published in an issue of Formal
Methods in System Design.

* Short papers (up to 5 pages) may present novel but not
necessarily thoroughly worked out ideas, for example emerging
runtime verification techniques and applications, or techniques
and applications that establish relationships between runtime
verification and other domains. Accepted short papers will be
presented in special short talk (5-10 minutes) and poster

In addition to short and regular papers, proposals for tutorials
and tool demonstrations are welcome. Proposals should be up to 2
pages long.

* Tutorial proposals on any of the topics above, as well as on
topics at the boundary between RV and other domains, are welcome.
Accepted tutorials will be allocated up to 15 pages in the
conference proceedings. Tutorial presentations will be at least
2 hours.

* Tool demonstration proposals should briefly introduce the problem
solved by the tool and give the outline of the demonstration.
Tool papers will be allocated 5 pages in the conference
proceedings. A Best Tool Award (USD 200) will be offered.

Submitted tutorial and tool demonstration proposals will be
evaluated by the corresponding chairs, with the help of selected

All accepted papers, including tutorial and tool papers, will
appear in the LNCS proceedings. Submitted papers must use the
LNCS style. At least one author of each accepted paper must
attend RV'11 to present the paper. Papers must be submitted
electronically using the EasyChair system. A link to the
electronic submission page will be made available on the RV'11
web page.
