Laboratory for Software Engineering and Reliability
LASER (Laboratory for Software Engineering and Reliability) is a research lab of the Institute of Computing at UNICAMP. Involving both theoretical and applied research, the LASER is interested in topics having a high impact on the Software and Systems Engineering research communities, as well as their application and transference to Industry.
Areas of Interest Software Architecture and Microservices Continuous Software Engineering (Agile, DevOps, and Lean) Experimental Software Engineering Model-Driven Engineering (MDA/MDE) Software Testing (Performance, Robustness, and Security) Performance and Dependability Evaluation Fault-tolerant/Resilient Systems
Here, we have a presentation about lab activities (Portuguese only).
Some days ago we celebrated the Master’s defense of Elder Rodrigues Jr., under the supervision of Prof. Leonardo. During his Master’s, Elder worked on a methodology and framework to manage coding conventions as structured models, and to automatically derive checkers by model transformation.
The defense was in remote format, due to the pandemic. Despite that, it originated a rich and interesting discussion with the members of the committee. The methodology proposed in his dissertation also generated two international publications, which confirm the quality of the work. Congratulations!
We are happy to announce the Steering Committee of the Special Commission on Software Engineering (CG-CEES) of the Brazilian Computing Society (SBC) awarded Prof. Cecília as the Honored Researcher in 2020! The award will be delivered during the CBSoft in October 2020.
This award represents all relevant contributions for Software Engineering research in Brazil and internationally, as well as all the supervisions that led to new researchers in the field. The last three researchers awarded as Honored Researcher are responsible for selecting the current one.

Finally, Prof. Cecília Rubira is selected as one of the Keynote Speakers in SBES 2021! Also, a great honor.
Congratulations, Prof. Cecília! A pleasure and honor to have you as a member of LASER!
The paper, entitled P4 Switch Code Data Flow Analysis: Towards Stronger Verification of Forwarding Plane Software, originated from a collaboration between LASER and the Computer Networks research group of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS).
Submissions to the XXI edition of the Fault Tolerance Workshop (WTF 2020) are open, and the deadline has been extended until Friday April 17th. This year, the event is being chaired by Prof. Leonardo from our research group.
January is time for an update from our researchers in Florence. Three researchers from the LASER group are at the moment visiting the Resilient Computing Lab (RCL) at the University of Florence, Italy, as part of the ADVANCE project.
The paper is part of the work carried out by Elder Rodrigues Jr. during his Master’s project, which focuses on simplifying the management and verification of coding conventions, using model-driven engineering techniques.
November has been an intense month in Natal, RN, as it hosted different events related to the computer systems community.
On days November 19th-21st, Natal hosted the 9th Latin-American Symposium on Dependable Computing (LADC 2019), the major event on systems dependability in the Central and South America regions. This year, LADC was co-located with the Brazilian Symposium on Computing Systems Engineering (SBESC). LADC 2019 saw a strong participation of researchers from LASER, starting from the Program Committee, chaired by Leonardo together with Luciana Arantes from Sorbonne University.
In October we received the visit of Prof. Regina Moraes, who spent a month with us working on the ADVANCE project. Regina worked for a long time at the Faculty of Technology of UNICAMP, in Limeira, but she is currently a Visiting Professor at the University of Coimbra, Portugal.
Her expertise revolves around different aspects of dependability and fault tolerance, under a software engineering perspective. Currently, she is working on privacy aspects in large-scale cloud infrastructures, also due to the activities she is carrying out in the ATMOSPHERE project.
