CALL FOR PAPERS: "Program Semantics, Specification and Verification", 12-13 June 2011, Russia
Contact: Alexei Promsky,

-Second Workshop on Program Semantics, Specification and Verification: Theory and Applications (PSSV 2011) -Affiliated with the 6th International Computer Science Symposium in Russia(CSR-2011), St. Petersburg, Russia.

It will be the second edition of the workshop. The first inaugural workshop PSSV-2010 took place June 14-15, 2010 in Kazan, Russia as a part of 5th International Computer Science Symposium in Russia (CSR-2010).


Important dates:
Extended abstract submission: March 1, 2011
Notification: March 31, 2011


Official language: English


Scope and Topics

List of topics of interest includes (but is not limited to):
* formalisms for program semantics
   (e.g. Abstract State Machines);
* formal models and semantics of programs and systems
   (e.g. labeled transition systems);
* semantics of programming and specification languages
   (e.g. axiomatic semantics);
* formal description techniques (e.g. SDL);
* logics for formal specification and verification
   (e.g. temporal logic);
* deductive program verification
   (e.g. verification conditions and automatic invariant generation);
* automatic theorem proving
   (e.g. combinations of decidable theories);
* model checking of programs and systems
   (e.g. verification of finite-state protocol models);
* static analysis of programs;
* formal approach to testing and validation
   (e.g. automatic test generation);
* program analysis and verification tools.
Research, work in progress and position papers are welcome.
