             VORTEX 2019, ECOOP, London, Friday 19 July, 2019
 3rd International Workshop on Verification of Objects at Runtime Execution

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 approach to ensure
software reliability, bridging the gap between formal verification and testing;
monitoring a system at runtime offers more opportunities for addressing error
recovery, self-adaptation, and issues that go beyond software reliability. The
goal of VORTEX is to bring together researchers working on all aspects of RV
with emphasis on integration with formal verification and testing.

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

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

Important Dates

Paper submission: May 31, 2019 23:59 AoE (UTC-12h)
Notification: June 7, 2019
Workshop: July 19, 2019

Submission Instructions

Submissions must be unpublished work, in English, between 6 and 12 pages
formatted in PDF with eptcs style (http://style.eptcs.org/). Papers of the
following categories can be submitted:

*   Technical papers, presenting novel results
*   Surveys on different tools, formal frameworks or methodologies
*   Experience papers or tool presentations: the former should report on
    experience of the use of tools, formal frameworks or methodologies on
    specific domains, while the latter should provide a practical account on the
    use of a specific tool

Papers must be submitted electronically via EasyChair at
https://easychair.org/my/conference.cgi?conf=vortex2019; the submission deadline
is May 31st AoE.

Review Process

*   1st round: before the early registration deadline, authors will receive a
    binary verdict “accepted/rejected for presentation”, with short motivations.

*   2nd round: after the workshop, authors invited to contribute to the
    post-proceedings will receive a complete review whose purpose is to provide
    guidelines for enhancing the extended version of their paper.

*   3rd round: final notifications for publications in the post-proceedings will
    be sent. Papers will be accepted only if reviewers are satisfied with the
    modifications requested in their guidelines, and only minor changes are
    required. No other review rounds will be planned.

Proceedings and Special Issue

Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS,
