Software systems are an important and critical component of modern human society, used in almost every sector from transport, power and telecoms to health-care, military and education. Different stakeholders use software systems to different ends. Major corporations use them to perform critical processes and store confidential corporate data; governments need them to support citizen services, run military operations and exchange highly confidential data; and individuals use them to perform every day activities from personal banking to storing private information.
As a result, today’s economy and society are vitally dependent on software systems operating, not just according to their specifications, but also with a certain degree of trust and security. The increasing adoption and integration of software systems within an environment of rapid technological advancements has demanded systems that go beyond mono-dimensional technical solutions simultaneously raising a set of tightly intertwined challenges.
