Advanced Technologies for Software Reliability and Safety (ATSRS)
December 10 ~ 12, 2009, International Convention Center Jeju, Jeju Island, Korea

to be held in conjunction with
2009 International Conference on Advanced Software Engineering & Its Applications
(ASEA 2009)


During the last four decades, software reliability and safety (SRS) rersearch has provided a number of quantitative methods used in real software development processes. Since the quantitative assessment of SRS and its related topics are the main issues in this area, one needs to develop several kinds of mathematical models and techniques. As a special session of the unique and interesting event, ASEA 2009, ATSRS aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the state of the art and the new challenges in SRS, as well as providing a unique opportunity for establishing collaborations among several research groups interested in this research field.


This call is an invitation to all researchers and practitioners with an interest about the following topics
(but not limited to):

  • Experimental and measurement techniques in SRS
  • Modeling and analysis of SRS
  • Implementation of SRS assessment tool
  • Reports on the application of SRS technologies to real systems
  • Statistical prediction and estimation methods in SRS
  • Test strategies focused on aging-related faults
  • Novel applications for SRS technologies
  • Measurement of SRS-related metrics
  • Control of SRS effects
  • Analysis of real case studies
