Conference Overview
 FMCAD 2008 is the eighth in a series of conferences on the theory
 and application of formal methods in hardware and system design and
 verification. In 2005, the bi-annual FMCAD and sister conference
 CHARME decided to merge to form an annual conference with a unified
 community. The resulting unified FMCAD provides a leading
 international forum to researchers and practitioners in academia and
 industry for presenting and discussing groundbreaking methods,
 technologies, theoretical results, and tools for formally reasoning
 about computing systems, as well as open challenges therein.

Local Information
 The Conference will be held at the Embassy Suites (Downtown) in
 Portland, Oregon.  We have negotiated a special rate with the hotel

Technical Program
 The technical program is available at the conference web page.  It
 includes 2 invited keynotes, 4 invited tutorials, 24 regular papers,
 4 short papers, and 2 panels.
