        Conference website:


VMCAI provides a forum for researchers from the communities of
Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation,
facilitating interaction, cross-fertilization, and advancement of
hybrid methods. VMCAI'09 is co-located with the POPL'09 conference.

The program of VMCAI'09 will consist of invited lectures, tutorials,
refereed research papers, and tool demonstrations. Research
contributions can report new results as well as experimental
evaluations and comparisons of existing techniques. Topics include,
but are not limited to:

    program verification          program certification
    model checking                debugging techniques
    abstract interpretation       abstract domains

    deductive methods             optimization

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent, 
constraint, functional, imperative, logic and object-oriented programming. 
Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English, and 
must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that 
are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with refereed 
proceedings. The proceedings will  be published by Springer in
