Towards Empirical Software Reliability Engineering

The empirical software engineering is becoming much popular and is useful to quantify the software development process via the measurement-based approach. Especially, an effective utilization of software metrics measured in the development process plays a central role to evaluate the engineering aspect of software development. On the other hand, the software reliability engineering aims at evaluating the quantitative software product reliability, which is defined as the probability that the software failure does not occur in the operational phase, but has just focused on the curve fitting of the cumulative number of software faults from the software fault count data. In other words, the software reliability engineering community has often missed to utilize the software metrics effectively during the last three decades.

In my talk, I summarize the metrics-based software reliability modeling framework and give a significant approach to bridge between the software metrics data and the software reliability assessment. The fundamental idea is to apply non-trivial regression-based models to represent the software failure rate. Throughout illustrative examples with actual software development project data, I show that the metrics-based software reliability assessment technique outperforms the existing software fault count methods. I also refer to the reliability assessment for incremental software development, arising in the well-known agile software development.

About Prof. Tadashi Dohi

Tadashi Dohi received the B.Sc. (Engineering), M.Sc. (Engineering) and Ph.D. (Engineering) from Hiroshima University, Japan, in 1989, 1991 and 1995, respectively. In 1992, he joined the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Hiroshima University, Japan, as an Assistant Professor. Since 2002, he has been working as a Full Professor in the Department of Information Engineering, Graduate School of Engineering, Hiroshima University. In 1992 and 2000, he was a Visiting Research Scholar in University of British Columbia, Canada and Duke University, USA, respectively, on leave of absence from Hiroshima University. His research areas include software reliability engineering, dependable computing and performance evaluation. He published over 400 peer-reviewed papers in the above research areas. He is a Regular Member of ORSJ, JSIAM, IEICE, REAJ and IEEE. Recently he acted as a General Chair of The 22nd International Symposium on Software Reliability Engineering (ISSRE 2011), Hiroshima, Japan, and The 9th International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing (ATC 2012), Fukuoka, Japan. He has been serving the program committee member of DSN, ISSRE, PRDC, COMPSAC, SERE, SAC, among others in software engineering conferences.

ICT for a Smarter Planet: Challenges, Enablers, and Opportunities

Recent advances in Pervasive Computing and Intelligent Environments research give a glimpse into the future of our planet and reveal exciting visions of smart everything - smart cities, smart homes, smart workplaces, smart hotels, smart schools, and much more. Driven by technological evolution offering low power many-things and wireless almost-everything (e.g., IEEE 802.15.4 radio, wireless sensor networks, sensor platforms), we could, in only a decade, envision and prototype impressive cyber-physical systems and ubiquitous applications. In most of these systems, the goal has been clear and convincing, and the technology proved to be promising and exciting. But prototyping is only a beginning, and much remains to be innovated and done before smart cities and smart environments become common places.
This keynote will discuss the exciting and promising smart planet future and vision. The lecture will then address several challenges and enabling opportunities. Specifically, the keynote will address: (1) the need for novel cyber-physical software architectures and middleware; (2) the need for a broader support for effective human computer interaction; (3) the need to integrate computational intelligence with pervasive systems research; and (4) the need to integrate research and education across several disciplines.

About Dr. Abdelsalam (Sumi) Helal

Dr. Abdelsalam (Sumi) Helal is a full Professor at the Computer and Information Science and Engineering Department (CISE) at University of Florida (UF), and a Finland Distinguished Professor (FiDiPro) at Aalto University, Finland. He is a pioneer and a recognized leader in the field of Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing.
