WoSAR: The 9th International Workshop on Software Aging and Rejuvenation

October 23-26, 2017, Toulouse, France, co-located with ISSRE 2017

Software aging is a problem of progressive degradation of

performance and dependability in computer programs,

especially those executing for long period of time. This

phenomenon has been extensively studied since more than 20

years, as it affects many systems, from embedded devices to

server software to critical systems.

Software rejuvenation, i.e. restart of application

(components/threads/task), VMs or machines, is the most

prominent approach to combat software aging. A variety of

reactive and proactive rejuvenation techniques, scheduling

plans, scope and granularity, have been proposed for different

application categories and platforms.

WoSAR is the premier international venue to discuss the recent

advances and discoveries in theoretical and practical aspects of

software aging and rejuvenation research.


This call addresses all researchers and practitioners with an

interest about performance and dependability degradation of

software systems. Topics addressed in the workshop include but

are not limited to:

. Progressive degradation of performability / availability /

reliability / scalability / “-ilities” in software systems.

. Modeling and characterization of the software aging


. Design and evaluation of rejuvenation techniques.

. Analysis of aging-related faults/bugs, errors, and failures.

. Software test strategies for detecting aging-related bugs.

. Monitoring and detection of software aging effects (e.g.,

memory leaks, database index fragmentation, unterminated

processes/threads, accrual of round-off errors, ...).

. New classes of software aging effects.

. Software aging and rejuvenation in Big Data and IoT Apps.

. Analytical, empirical, and experimental studies of any of the

above topics.

. Analysis of real case studies.

For all the above topics, WoSAR is a unique forum to discuss

the software aging and rejuvenation impacts on systems from

different domains of applicability such as:

Cloud computing, Mobile, Embedded, Medical, Cyber-physical,

SCADA, Smart Cities, Transportation, Telecommunication,

Military, System of systems, and others.
