Resilience is an ability of a system to persistently deliver trustworthy services despite changes. Modern software systems continuously change in response to evolving requirements, customer feedback, new business needs, platform upgrades etc. Despite frequent changes software is expected to function correctly and reliably especially while providing services that are critical to society, e.g., in such areas as transportation, healthcare, energy production etc. Since modern software should be developed to efficiently cope with changes, unforeseen failures and intrusions, design for resilience is becoming an increasingly important area of software engineering.
SERENE workshop has a long tradition of bringing together researchers and industry practitioners to discuss advances in engineering resilient systems. Since 2015 SERENE has become a part of a major European dependability forum – EDCC, the European Dependable Computing Conference.
The SERENE 2016 workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas on advances in all areas relevant to software engineering for resilient systems.
