“Automating Pragmatic Software Dependability”

Abstract: The inherent complexity of large-scale software systems has always posed a significant challenge to software practitioners. On top of this, the ever-increasing expansion of software into nearly every aspect of modern life is making its dependability more critical than ever. Automating the cumbersome and error-prone software engineering activities is paramount for achieving dependable software. On the strength of their automated, yet formally-precise analysis capabilities, lightweight formal methods have recently received a lot of attention in the software engineering community. In this talk, I will present the ongoing research in my research group, which explores the possibility of leveraging such formally rigorous techniques that rely on recent advancements in constraint solving technologies for automated and practical dependability analysis of widely-used software systems.
