The 7th edition of the Latin-American Symposium on Dependable Computing (LADC 2016) was held in Cali, Colombia during October 19-21, organized by the University of Cauca (UNICAUCA) and hosted the University of San Buenaventura. The DEVASSES researchers are regular contributors of the conference and once again provided a strong participation, including participation in the organization of the conference, workshops and submission of papers.
The Workshop on Dependability in Evolving Systems (WDES 2016), took place in October 20 also in the beautiful campus of the Universidad de San Buonaventura. The workshop was organized by the DEVASSES researchers Leonardo Montecchi, Baldoino Neto, Cecilia Rubira and also Ivan Mura from Los Andes University, Colombia. The project represents a way to promote the discussion on the challenges of ensuring dependability in evolving systems.
The workshop program featured 6 paper organized in three sessions: satellite systems, security and privacy, and power systems. The program was opened by a keynote on “Evolving Systems of Systems: the AMADEOS approach” by Prof. Andrea Bondavalli, which discussed the challenges regarding dependability and evolution that were addressed in the AMADEOS project, and the devised solutions.
