From the Foreword "Getting CPS dependability right is essential to forming a solid foundation for a world that increasingly depends on such systems. This book represents the cutting edge of what we know about rigorous ways to ensure that our CPS designs are trustworthy. I recommend it to anyone who wants to get a deep look at these concepts that will form a cornerstone for future CPS designs." --Phil Koopman, Carnegie Mellon... more...

This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Second International Conference on Reliability, Safety and Security of Railway Systems, RRSRail 2017, held in Pistoia, Italy, in November 2017. The 16 papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 34 submissions. They are organized in topical sections named: communication challenges in railway systems; formal modeling and verification for safety; light rail and... more...

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the First International Conference on Reliability, Safety, and Security of Railway Systems, RSSRail 2016, held in Paris, France, in June 2016. The 15 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 36 initial submissions. The papers cover a wide range of topics including failure analysis, interlocking verification, formal system specification... more...

This book – inspired by two ECOOP workshops on exception handling - is composed of five parts; the first four address exception handling and related topics in the context of programming languages, concurrency and operating systems, pervasive computing systems, and requirements and specifications. The last part offers case studies, experimentation and qualitative comparisons. The 16 coherently written chapters by leading researchers... more...

Modern software systems are becoming more complex in many ways and have to cope with a growing number of abnormal situations which, in turn, are increasingly complex to handle. The most general way of dealing with these problems is by incorporating exception handling techniques in software design. In the past, various exception handling models and techniques have been proposed and many of them are part of practical languages and software composition... more...


As software systems become more and more ubiquitous, the issues of dependability become more and more critical. Given that solutions to these issues must be planned at the beginning of the design process, it is appropriate that these issues be addressed at the architectural level. This book is inspired by the ICSE 2002 Workshop on Architecting Dependable Systems; it is devoted to current topics relevant for improving the state of the... more...

This book brings together 19 papers focusing on the application of rigorous design techniques to the development of fault-tolerant, software-based systems. It is an outcome of the REFT 2005 Workshop on Rigorous Engineering of Fault-Tolerant Systems held in conjunction with the Formal Methods 2005 conference at Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, in July 2005.

The papers selected for this volume present advances in software engineering approaches to develop dependable high-quality multi-agent systems. These papers describe experiences and techniques associated with large multi-agent systems in a wide variety of problem domains. They cover fault tolerance, exception handling and diagnosis, security and trust, verification and validation, as well as early development phases and software reuse.

This book presents a coherent, well-balanced survey of recent advances in software engineering approaches to the design and analysis of realistic large-scale multi-agent systems (MAS). The chapters included are devoted to various techniques and methods used to cope with the complexity of real-world MAS. Reflecting the importance of agent properties in today's software systems, the power of agent-based software engineering is illustrated... more...

A formal method is not the main engine of a development process, its contribution is to improve system dependability by motivating formalisation where useful. This book summarizes the results of the DEPLOY research project on engineering methods for dependable systems through the industrial deployment of formal methods in software development. The applications considered were in automotive, aerospace, railway, and enterprise... more...
