The workshop program consisted of a set of invited and contributed presentations that illustrate different techniques for, and applications of, causality analysis and fault localization.
The program was anchored by two keynote talks. The keynote by Hana Chockler (King’s College) provided a broad perspective on the application of causal reasoning based on Halpern and Pearl’s definitions of actual causality to a variety of application domains ranging from formal verification to legal reasoning. The keynote by Chao Wang (Virginia Tech) concentrated on constraint-based analysis techniques for debugging and verifying concurrent programs.
Workshop papers deal with compositional causality analysis and a wide spectrum of application for causal reasoning, such as debugging of probabilistic models, accountability and responsibility, hazard analysis in practice based on Lewis’ counterfactuals, and fault localization and repair.
The program was completed by an informal discussion on open issues in causality analysis.
We would like to thank keynote speakers and the authors of invited and contributed papers,
without whom this workshop would not be possible. We also would like to thank the program
committee who provided thorough evaluation of the contributions and helpful feedback for the
authors. We are grateful to the ETAPS organization committee for the logistical support of the workshop. Additional support was provided by the Causalysis project funded by
Gregor Gössler and Oleg Sokolsky
