Welcome to the Resilient Computing Lab (RCL)

RCL is a research group of the Department of Mathematics and Informatics (DiMaI, "Dipartimento di Matermatica e Informatica") of the University of Florence. RCL research activities focus mainly in research and experimentation of dependable architectures and systems. RCL is currently involved in research spanning the following areas:

  • Architectures and techniques for resilient systems and infrastructures;
  • Quantitative dependability and QoS evaluation.

Details on where we are, who we are, and our projects are available on this website.
For further information, please contact prof. Andrea Bondavalli.

RCL hosted the 5th IRENE F2F meeting PDF Print E-mail

RCL hosted the 5th face-to-face meeting of the project IRENE (now at month 19/30), which involved attendees from all the partners of the consortium. In particular, the meeting was directed to discuss the novel architectures and the modeling tool that are being developed within WP3 and WP4 of the project.

During the meeting, RCL promoted the discussion about the integration of the tools that are being developed in the context of the project (modeling, threat analysis, load prediction), aiming to find the best way to connect them. In addition, a presentation about model-based evaluation of the IRENE methods and framework was shown, to support and complement the analysis including evaluations related to dependability and security assessment. These evaluations will be conducted using techniques such as extensions of SAN (Stochastic Activity Networks).

For some of the participants this was the first time in Firenze. Consequently the session of the 26th April ended in a dinner in one of the most famous restaurants of the city centre. Moreover, a brief Firenze-by-night tour was performed before coming back to the hotels.

DEVASSES/CECRIS Joint Seminars and Prof. Henrique Madeira visit PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 14 April 2016 00:00

Very enjoyable international collaboration is happening in these days at RCL!

Today we had a seminar joining together people with both the DEVASSES and the CECRIS projects. Beáta Hergovics and Máté Tóth are testing engineers from Prolan in Budapest, Hungary, and are currently visiting RCL for a short period to work on the CECRIS project.

Lucas Leal is a Master's student at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas, in Brazil, and he will stay in Florence for a three-months secondment to work in the DEVASSES project. During his secondment he will work on "Model-Based Online Testing for Dynamic SOA"; this seminar was the opportunity to present the initial idea and discuss the topic with the other researchers.

Prof. Henrique Madeira, from the University of Coimbra in Portugal was also attending the workshop. In this period Prof. Madeira is visiting University of Florence, where he is also holding a set of seminars on "Design of experiments for resilience assessment and benchmarking". The goal is to use real data from concrete resilience/dependability assessment experiments, particularly raw data from fault injection experiments, to provide a comprehensive set of examples on how to design and perform correct experiments. The course is covering basic concepts on fault injection for dependability and resilience assessment, steps of designing an experiment, how to perform correct measurements, and hypothesis testing.

 
Prof. Edgar Nett visits the RCL group PDF Print E-mail

The RCL group is very happy to host the visit of Prof. Edgar Nett, from the Otto-von-Guericke University of Magdeburg, Germany!

Prof. Nett is holding a short course on "Aspects of distributed real-time computing" for PhD and Masters' students. The course consists of a theoretical part that addresses general notions on real-time computing and its principal issues, CPU scheduling algorithms, Worst Case Execution Times (WCETs), as well as a part on application examples, including coordination of robots implementing off-side rules for the "RoboCup" competition.

Brazilians researchers in Firenze! PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 25 January 2016 00:00

Starting from mid January, a group of researchers from Brazil have arrived in Firenze to fulfill their secondments for the DEVASSES project. An intense period of collaboration is starting: currently a total of five researchers are visting the Resilient Computing Lab. Seminars were organized in different days, to have the initial presentations of the starting secondments, and further discussions on collaboration topics.

Cecilia Rubira and Ariadne Carvalho are professors at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP), in Campinas, São Paulo, Brazil. They arrived in the middle of January and are staying in Firenze for one month. Felipe Gaia and Sheila Venero are PhD students at UNICAMP, and they will stay for two and three months, respectively. Baldoino Neto is a professor at the Universidade Federal de Alagoas (UFAL), in Maceió, Alagoas, Brazil. Baldoino is also staying one month, to then pass the token to his student Marcus Piancó, which is arriving in the middle of February for a six-months secondment.
