On the Monitoring of Decentralized Specifications: Semantics, Properties, Analysis, and Simulation

The paper On the Monitoring of Decentralized Specifications: Semantics, Properties, Analysis, and Simulation has been accepted for publication in TOSEM, the ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology. We define two complementary approaches to monitor decentralized systems. The first relies on those with a centralized specification, i.e, when the specification is written for the behavior of […]

On the Runtime Enforcement of Timed Properties

The tutorial paper On the Runtime Enforcement of Timed Properties has been accepted for publication in Runtime Verification 2019. Runtime enforcement refers to the theories, techniques, and tools for enforcing correct behavior of systems at runtime. We are interested in such behaviors described by specifications that feature timing constraints formalized in what is generally referred […]
