1st IEEE International Workshop on Resilience Engineering (http://paris.utdallas.edu/iwre17/)
Call for Papers

The workshop will be co-located with the 2017 IEEE International Conference on Software Quality, Reliability, and Security (http://paris.utdallas.edu/qrs17/), in Prague, Czech Republic, July 25-29, 2017

Background and Scope: Resilience is rapidly spreading throughout domains traditionally studied by quality, reliability, and security researchers. It is widely recognized that progressively higher levels of resilience are needed to ensure complex systems and processes can provide continuity of operations and services. Examples include military vehicles, information systems, critical infrastructure, as well as supply chains and manufacturing processes. Many of these possess cyber and physical dimensions and are interconnected via networks or compose to form systems of systems. Despite the strong interest in resilience by defense and security organizations, the concepts are also of interest to commercial systems and processes. Recognizing that there is no universal mathematical formulation or single process capable of encompassing all domains, the Resilience Engineering Workshop seeks to convene researchers from across the spectrum of systems and process domains, ranging from theoretical to applied research for a stimulating exchange. We invite the participation of experts to share their ideas and experience to identify universal themes as well as to help define differences across domains. In doing so, we seek to bring enhanced clarity to this promising but often incompletely understood attribute and to accelerate the maturation of resilience as a discipline so that principles and best practices can be effectively disseminated to and implemented by the engineering community.

Information for Authors: We invite manuscripts for a half-day workshop to discuss recent research in areas associated with engineered resilient systems and processes. Please submit manuscripts of not greater than 8 pages in the standard IEEE conference format. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Novel mathematical formulations and frameworks
* Resilience and its relationship to traditional quantitative and qualitative risk management methods
* Case studies from any domain emphasizing a system or process perspective (fault tolerance in high performance computing)
* Methods for design and verification of resilience as a system attribute
* Test and evaluation (T&E) methods to assure resilience
* Bio-inspired methods for engineered resilient systems and processes
* Resilience within multidisciplinary systems and processes
* Resilience between interdependent systems and processes

Due to the increasing complexity and interconnectedness of systems and processes, the goal of this workshop is to identify emerging techniques that can be harnessed to ensure the rapid and cost effective design, test, and evaluation of resilient systems across a range of technical domains.
