Computer systems are omnipresent. We continuously interact with them, direct or indirectly. Examples abound: web services, medical systems, mobile devices, automotive, communication networks, the electrical grid, etc. Modern life greatly depends on their proper functioning, and hence, it demands that they provide services that can be justifiably relied upon; that is, that they are dependable. This involves requirements such as safety, reliability, availability, and security that can only be guaranteed through formally based specification and analysis techniques.
In our research group, we seek for mathematical and logical foundations as well as algorithms that contribute to the developments of techniques and tools for specification and analysis of systems with the aim to achieve dependability.
