June 24, 2013 Budapest, Hungary

Table of Contents

Purpose and Scope

A resilient system is a system that can, in the face of unknown, large-scale events, recover from the failures and maintain its functions. It is known that many systems, such as biological systems, human mind, social systems, and dependable engineering systems exhibit this property. However, it is not clear how we should identify general "resilience" properties or strategies applicable to systems in many different domains. The purpose of this workshop is to bring the insights from various fields of resilient systems and explore common research challenges and design principles in the new discipline of "systems resilience."

Topics of Interest

The workshop addresses (but is not limited to) the following topics:

  • Resilience definitions and metrics
  • Risk management and vulnerability analysis in complex systems
  • Case studies for resilient or non-resilient systems
  • Recovery-oriented and autonomic computing
  • Self-healing systems
  • Bio-inspired adaptation and diversification techniques
  • Resilient networks
  • Modeling and simulation techniques for resilient systems
  • Business continuity plan and dynamic policy management
  • Human factors in resilient systems
  • Organizational or social resilience
