Logistics

By plane

You can land in the following airports:
  • Florence airport "Amerigo Vespucci"

    Florence airport is at Peretola, approximately 5 km West of Florence.
    Direct flights (international, no charters) operate from: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Brussels, London Gatwick, Lugano, Munich, Nice, Paris CDG and Vienna.

    When you arrive at the airport, the easiest way to arrive at the deparment is to take a taxi. It should take approximately 10 minutes.

    There is also a shuttle going from the airport to the Florence main train station "Firenze Santa Maria Novella". The name of the shuttle is "Vola in Bus"; details and timetables.
    From the "Firenze Santa Maria Novella" main train station to the department, see below (section "By train").

  • Pisa airport "Galileo Galilei"

    Pisa airport is about 80 km West of Florence.
    Direct flights (international) from: Barcelona, London Gatwick, Munich, Paris.
    Charter flights: London Gatwick, Manchester, Paris Orly.

    Very close to the Terminal, you can find the Pisa Fermata Aeroporto station, take the the People Mover service and reach the Pisa Centrale railway station. Direct trains start from "Pisa Centrale" train station to Florence main train station "Firenze Santa Maria Novella" every hour, approximately (journey time of about 1 hour).

    Almost all trains from Pisa to "Firenze Santa Maria Novella" stop at "Firenze Rifredi" station: from there, see below (section "By train"). Trenitalia website.

  • Rome inter-continental airport "Fiumicino"

    Rome inter-continental Fiumicino airport, served by all major airlines with flights from all over the world, is connected with a non-stop train every hour to the main Rome railway station (Termini), which is reached in half an hour.
    More often than every hour a high speed train leaves Rome Termini to Florence Santa Maria Novella, which is reached in about 100 minutes. Most of these trains require to be reserved in advance. Please visit the Trenitalia website for connections and information.

By train

You can stop at the following train stations:
  • Firenze Santa Maria Novella, the main train station.

    Firenze Santa Maria Novella, which is in the city centre, is connected to the major Italian North-South train route.
    High speed trains running between Milan and Rome stop in Firenze Santa Maria Novella. Eurocity and night trains connect directly Florence to several European cities (Paris, Geneve, Zurich, Wien, Munich,...).

    If you stop at Firenze Santa Maria Novella, take bus n. 14B or 14C (direction: "Tolentino" or "Careggi" respectively). The bus stop to get off is Ospedale di Careggi (Careggi Hospital).

  • Firenze Rifredi, a secondary Florence train station, the closest to our department.

    All trains from/to Pisa stop in Firenze Rifredi.

    The departement is reachable in 10 minutes by walking. From the station square take via Steccuto, turn right at the first crossing (via R. Giuliani), then, at a petrol station, turn left to via S. Stefano in Pane. At the second traffic light of via S. Stefano in Pane you will meet viale Morgagni, turn left for the department.

Please visit the Trenitalia website for connections and information.

By bus

The bus lines going to the department are "14B" or "14C" (direction: "Tolentino" or "Careggi" respectively); the bus stop to get off is Ospedale di Careggi (Careggi Hospital). Both "14B" or "14C" stop at the Florence main train station.

By car

The "Autostrada Del Sole" Highway (A1, E35) connects Florence both with southern and northern Italy. We suggest the exit "Firenze Nord" and then follow the instructions to reach the "Careggi" hospital (the department is quite close to the main entrance of the Careggi hospital).

Please visit the Autostrade per l'Italia website for routes and rates.

=========================================================

14th European Dependable Computing Conference (EDCC-2018)

=========================================================

10-14 September 2018
Iasi, Romania
---------------------------------------------------------

The European Dependable Computing Conference is a unique forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their latest research results on theory, techniques, systems, and tools for the design, validation, operation and evaluation of dependable and secure computing systems. In addition to original papers on research, EDCC welcomes papers dedicated to dependability in practice: industrial applications, experience in introducing dependability in industry, use of new or mature dependability approaches to new challenging problems or domains, etc. It will also provide a natural meeting place for the large number of projects in dependability, to present their state of advancement and innovative results.

EDCC 2018 will feature several tracks, including invited speakers, full paper presentations, posters, a student forum and a set of cutting-edge workshops.

Authors of regular papers and experience reports accepted and presented at EDCC will be encouraged to submit an extended and modified version of their papers to a Special issue of the International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems, dedicated to System Dependability, with a short cycle, to appear early 2019.
Full details are on the EDCC-2018 website.

DEVASSES

On March 30th and 31st, Prof. Davi Bibiano Brito had two seminars, entitled:

  • Automatic and Self Sustaining Precision Irrigation System
  • Projects for Excellence in Microelectronics - PEM

Davi is an assistant professor at Universidade Federal de Alagoas (UFAL), in Maceió, Brazil.

He is visiting the Resilient Computing Lab as part of the DEVASSES project, and will stay in Firenze for one month.

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

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
CECRIS

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.
