Unprecedented level of complexity of modern software and software-based systems makes it difficult to ensure resilience – an ability of a system to persistently deliver its services in a dependable way even when facing changes, unforeseen failures and intrusions. Yet we are observing the increasingly pervasive use of software in evolvable and critical systems like transportation, health care, manufacturing, and IT infrastructures. This trend urges the definition of new methods and tools for assessing the resilience of software-intensive systems at runtime. The goal of this panel is to present and discuss views on the future needs and techniques for runtime resilience assessment of dynamic software systems, joining a set of well-known experienced panelists in the domain of resilience assessment, software engineering, and dynamic systems design.
