During the Euopean Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice and Software 2016 (ETAPS'16) in Eindhoven Mariëlle Stoelinga and Marcus Gerhold win the EASST best paper for their paper titled 'Model-Based Testing of Probabilistic Systems'.
Their work describes the testing process of systems that make use of probability and how to check whether or not they were implemented correctly.

The GI/ITG Technical Committee of "Measurement, Modelling and Evaluation of Computing Systems" has awarded to Arnd Hartmanns the MMB Dissertation Award 2016 at the biennial MMB & DFT conference in Münster on April 5, 2016.
Arnd Hartmanns completed his Ph.D. with a thesis titled "On the Analysis of Stochastic Timed Systems" at Saarland University, Germany, supervised by Prof. Holger Hermanns. He joined the Formal Methods and Tools Group at the University of Twente as a postdoc in October 2015.

Mariëlle Stoelinga (EEMCS/FMT group) acquired a new NWO IPPSI/KIEM project: SamSam: An integral SAfety / Security Analysis fraMework. IPPSI KIEM is the Innovative Public-Private Cooperation programme of NWO. The project is co-funded by Delta Pi, an innovative SME in risk analysis for technical infrastructures.
The goal of the SamSam project is to develop an integral model-based analysis framework for Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) and cyber security aspects. Usually, RAMS and security are considered separately, which is inefficient and ineffective. RAMS and security are tightly connected and often lead to conflicting requirements: measures that increase reliability or safety can be exploited by hackers; measures that increase security often decrease the system safety or availability. The aim of the SamSam project is to combine two existing, prominent frameworks for RAMS and security analysis, (namely, attack trees and fault trees), and evaluate these via three industrial case studies.
