CFP: LfSA'10: Logics for System Analysis - abstract deadline soon

Second call for papers
     LfSA'10 - Logics for System Analysis
Workshop Affiliated with IJCAR and LICS at FLoC 2010
       July 15th, 2010, Edinburgh, UK

News: Invited speaker announced

* Thomas A. Henzinger, IST Austria
* Second invited speaker TBA

Safety-critical systems frequently occur as real-time systems, embedded
systems, hybrid systems, distributed systems, and cyber-physical
systems. They are also becoming more and more important in many
application domains, including aviation, automotive, railway, robotic,
or medical applications. To ensure the correct functioning of
safety-critical systems it is necessary to model and reason about
hardware (including physical properties or movement), software,
communication aspects, and qualitative and quantitative aspects of the
system environment.

Logics for system analysis, system modeling, and specification, are
primary tools to analyze system behavior.  Logic is equally important
for understanding the theoretical foundations of system analysis and as
the basis for practical analysis tools that establish correct
functioning of systems or find bugs in their designs.  Depending on the
nature of the system, modeling languages that are amenable to logical
analysis and the study of correctness properties include logical
representations, automata, state charts, Petri nets, dataflow models, or
systems of differential equations. Several system models can be analyzed
rigorously with the help of techniques such as logical calculi, decision
procedures, model checking, and abstraction.

LfSA'10 is devoted to the systematic theoretical study, practical
development, and applied use of logics for system analysis. The purpose
of the LfSA workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
interested in studying practically relevant systems or in developing the
logical foundations and analysis tools for their study.


* Logics for safety-critical systems (real-time, embedded, hybrid,
distributed, stochastic, cyber-physical)
* Logic-based methods for development of safety-critical systems
* System representations using logics, automata, modeling
languages, state charts, Petri nets, dataflow models
* Theories, decision procedures, and calculi for system analysis
* Model checking, theorem proving, and systematic testing
* Case studies for logical system analysis
* Applications of system analysis to industrial problems
(including automotive, aviation, railway, robotics, process
control, mixed analog/digital circuits in chip design)

In particular, we invite contributions that bridge the gap between
theory and practice or that combine different application domains.

Submission Categories

* Regular papers (up to 15 pages), which should present previously
unpublished work (completed or in progress), including
descriptions of research, tools, and applications.
* Short papers (up to 5 pages), which describe work in progress or
aim at initiating discussions.
* Presentation-only papers, i.e., papers already submitted or
presented at a conference or another workshop; such papers will
not be included in the LfSA proceedings but will be presented
during the workshop.

In addition to informal and electronic workshop proceedings, we consider
the option of a special issue in a journal after the workshop.
