Call For Presentations

Games and Probabilistic Models in Formal Verification 2010

           August 28, 2010, Brno, Czech Republic


OBJECTIVE & SCOPE: Formal methods are widely used in the development and
analysis of complex systems such as aircraft flight control systems,
controllers of industrial processes, biological processes etc. These systems
usually exhibit features such as randomness, interaction and parallelism.
Probabilistic and game theoretic models are especially well suited for
capturing these features and therefore there is a need to develop such models
and methods for their analysis. The goal of GPMFV 2010 is to put together
researchers who are currently working on attractive, exciting, and new ideas
in topics that include (but are not limited to):

 algorithms for finite and infinite games
 automata theory and games
 timed games
 probabilistic models for verification
 decision processes and stochastic games
 logics for probabilistic models and games
 probabilistic model checking

We call for presentations (in form of one-page abstracts) of recently published
or even unpublished work, without restricting the possibility of future
publication of such results.

SUBMISSION: There will be no formal proceedings of GPMFV 2010. Abstracts for
presentations must clearly describe the contribution of the work. Submissions
should not exceed 1 (one) page. The authors are encouraged to include web-link
of the full version of their contribution, which will be reviewed at the
discretion of the program committee. Submissions of abstracts will be handled
by the EasyChair system.


 Abstract submission: May 10, 2010.
 Notification:  May 31, 2010.
