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
