Actively-used software systems are upgraded regularly to incorporate bug fixes and security patches or to keep up with evolving requirements. Whether upgrades are applied offline or online, they significantly impact the system's performance and reliability. Recently-introduced commercial products aim to address various aspects of this problem; however, recent studies and a large body of anecdotal evidence suggest that upgrades remain failure-prone, tedious, and expensive.
The goal of HotSWUp Workshop is to identify cutting-edge research for supporting software upgrades that are flexible, efficient, robust, and easy to specify and apply. Many diverse research areas are concerned with building large, evolving, highly-available systems. In particular, there has been a recent surge of interest on software upgrades in all of these areas, as reflected in the recent issues of conferences such as ICSE, ICDE, FSE, SIGMOD, OOPSLA, PLDI, SOSP, and OSDI. By seeking contributions from both academic researchers and industry practitioners, HotSWUp aims to combine novel ideas with experience from upgrading real systems.
The aim of HotSWUp is to bring together people from different communities that are working on software upgrades, which is the reason for having hosted the workshop at different conferences. In the past, HotSWUp has received contributions from many of these areas, in particular, from the areas of databases, distributed systems, and programming languages. Now, HotSWUp wants to actively involve the software engineering community. The present workshop aims to build on the successes of HotSWUp'08 (co-located with OOPSLA) , HotSWUp'09 (OOPSLA), and HotSWUp '11 (ICDE) where the paper presentations and lively discussions attracted a diverse audience of researchers.
The next edition of HotSWUp will be co-located with ICSE 2012, which will be held in Zurich, Switzerland from June 2-9, 2012.
