Software Engineering for Trustworthy Services and Applications
Room M1, 06/12/2018 (10:00-10:45)
ICT and, in particular, software is more and more pervasive. Among the others, outstanding application fields concern: i) smart spaces, including, in particular, industrial environments where an advanced digitalization could be dramatically beneficial; ii) autonomous driving, where machines would be required to take autonomous decisions in particularly unstructured environments controlled by a high number of variables and we should be able to certify the software that is behind this decision making process; iii) the Internet of Things, where the presence of massively replicated, autonomous and embedded software requires that we understand how to ensure proper behaviors, proper collaboration and self-adaptation between the various software parts; iv) societal computing, where aspects concerned with privacy, management of socio-technical ecosystems, sustainability of software, governance patterns, machine to society interaction are to be analyzed deeply and shaped based on the needs of today society.
In these contexts, keeping software engineering processes under control and ensuring that software is actually fully trustable requires significant work in terms of enhancement and evolution of processes, tools, frameworks, and programming models.
The objective of this session is to discuss about the above issues with the purpose of collectively defining ideas and new research trends, possibly triggering the development of a cross-projects publication and new collaborations.
