Title of paper: X-by-Construction

Abstract

After decades of progress on Correctness-by-Construction (CbC) as a scientific discipline of engineering, it is time to look further than correctness and investigate a move from CbC to XbC, i.e., considering also non-functional properties. X-by-Construction (XbC) is concerned with a step-wise refinement process from specification to code that automatically generates software (system) implementations that by construction satisfy specific non-functional properties concerning security, dependability, reliability or resource/energy consumption, to name but a few. This track brings together researchers and practitioners that are interested in CbC and the promise of XbC.
