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.
The “Addressing Verification and Validation Challenges in Future Cyber-Physical Systems” (ADVANCE) research project has started this year with the participation of researchers from LASER, working on the challenges of future cyber-physical systems.
ADVANCE is an Horizon 2020 project, funded by the European Union under the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE) scheme, in which research is performed by exchange of researchers between the partners and transfer of knowledge activities.
The Kick-Off meeting of the project and first Transfer of Knowledge workshop were held in Florence, Italy, in the beginning of February 2019.
