The workshop will be co-located with the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Software Quality, Reliability, and Security (https://qrs19.techconf.org/), in Sofia, Bulgaria, July 22-26, 2019.
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.
