3rd International Symposium on Architecting Critical Systems (ISARCS 2012)
Bertinoro, Italy, June 26-28 2012

Federated with CompArch 2012

ISARCS is at the third edition and it is the perfect venue for exchanging
ideas on both theory and practice for architecting critical systems.
Architecting these systems has the big challenge to guarantee both the
perceived and objective dependability and security even accepting service
degradation. This requires trade-off among the various attributes of
dependability and security that cannot be considered in isolation. We are
interested in submissions from both industry and academia, including, but
not limited to, the following main areas:

Architectural styles and patterns
Architectural support for evolution
Aspects-oriented development
Assurance-based development
Automotive and avionic systems
Component-based development
Critical infrastructures
E-commerce, e-business, and e-government
Embedded, mobile, and ubiquitous systems
Extensible ADLs
Fault injection
Industrial case studies, challenges, problems, and solutions
Inspection techniques
Integration of processes, tools, and analysis techniques
Integrators (wrappers) for dependability
Model checking
Model-driven development
Redundancy and diversity
Runtime checks
Survivability and error confinement
Testing and simulation
Theorem proving
Tolerating architectural mismatches
Type checking techniques

Paper submissions: Accepted contributions will be published in the ACM
Digital Library. Papers should not exceed 10 pages, must be written in
English, and prepared according to the ACM style ( Papers must no=
have been previously published or currently submitted elsewhere for
publication. If accepted, the paper must be personally presented at ISARCS
2012 by one author. Submissions will be made through the EasyChair on-line
submission system (see website).
