ECOOP 2020
Sun 15 - Tue 17 November 2020 Online Conference
co-located with SPLASH 2020

Due to COVID-19, VORTEX will be postponed to 2021.

Runtime verification (RV) is an approach to software verification which is concerned with monitoring and analysis of software and hardware system executions by means of the event traces generated from single runs of the system under scrutiny (SUS).

Recently, RV has gained more consensus as a solution to ensure software reliability, bridging the gap between formal verification and testing: on the one hand, the notion of event trace abstracts over SUS executions, thus favoring system agnosticism to better support reuse and interoperability; on the other hand, monitoring a SUS 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 contributing on all aspects of RV covering and possibly integrating both theoretical and practical aspects, with particular focus on hybrid approaches inspired by formal methods and testing.
