WTF – XIX Workshop on Tests and Fault Tolerance


WTF is the major brazilian forum for discussion and exchange of ideas on theoretical and practical work related to testing and fault tolerance developed in academia and industry.


Researchers are invited to submit papers that address research related to testing and fault tolerance. Authors who have researches with preliminary results or work in progress are also encouraged to submit papers. The non-exhaustive list of topics of interest to WTF is as follows:

  • Distributed algorithms
  • High availability architecture for sofware and hardware
  • Distributed and fault-tolerant databases
  • High availability clusters
  • Dependability of grids and clouds
  • Dependability of containers and virtual machines
  • Adaptive and autonomic systems
  • Mobile and embedded computing
  • Tools and test automation
  • Fault-Tolerant techniques in programming languages
  • Analytical methods for dependability
  • Robustness of middleware, web services and microservices
  • Group communication, multicast and routing
  • P2P networks, mobily and Ad Hoc
  • Fault detection and recovery
  • Critical safety
  • Fault-Tolerant techniques for operating systems
  • Real time systems
  • Techniques/test data generation
  • Intrusion tolerance
  • Fault tolerance
  • Experimental validation and simulation
  • Benchmarking
