Debugging convergence problems in probabilistic programs via program representation learning with SixthSense

Probabilistic programming aims to open the power of Bayesian reasoning to software developers and scientists, but identification of problems during inference and debugging are left entirely to the developers and typically require significant …

Distributed graph queries over models@run.time for runtime monitoring of cyber-physical systems

Smart cyber-physical systems (CPSs) have complex interaction with their environment which is rarely known in advance, and they heavily depend on intelligent data processing carried out over a heterogeneous and distributed computation platform with …

Diversity of graph models and graph generators in mutation testing

When custom modeling tools are used for designing complex safety-critical systems (e.g., critical cyber-physical systems), the tools themselves need to be validated by systematic testing to prevent tool-specific bugs reaching the system. Testing …

family-based model checking using variability abstractions and modal transition systems

Variational systems can produce a (potentially huge) number of related systems, known as products or variants, by using features (configuration options) to mark the variable functionality. In many of the application domains, their rigorous …

Providing the shalls

Early validation of requirements through formal methods

Incomplete, inaccurate, ambiguous, and volatile requirements have plagued the software industry since its inception. The convergence of model-based development and formal methods offers developers of safety-critical systems a powerful new approach …

A real-time profile for UML

This paper describes an approach for real-time modelling in UML, focusing on analysis and verification of time and scheduling-related properties. To this aim, a concrete UML profile, called the ωprofile, is defined, dedicated to real-time …
