CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Dutch Model Checking Day 2011, 17 June 2011, THE NETHERLANDS

http://www.se.ewi.tudelft.nl/dmcd2011/index.html

Delft (The Netherlands)

Dutch Model Checking Day 2011
Friday June 17, 2011, 10:00h -- 17:00h
Delft University of Technology

Participation is free of charge, but registration is required.

Model checking is a tool-supported technique to analyse the correctness of ICT systems that enjoys
increasing popularity in both scientific and industrial circles. In the past twenty-five years, 
research in this area has led to dramatic improvements in the performance of model checking tools. 
This has enabled its application to real-life problems, and has induced major corporations such as 
Microsoft and Intel to invest in the development and application of model checking technology.

The Dutch Model Checking Day (DMCD) is a forum for practitioners and researchers interested in 
model-based techniques for the validation and analysis of software and hardware. DMCD covers a 
broad spectrum of topics, ranging from fundamental algorithms to industrial applications and tools.
The workshop aims to foster interactions and exchanges of ideas with all related areas in software 
engineering.

The keynote talk of DMCD 2011 will be given by Byron Cook from Microsoft Research Cambridge and 
Queen Mary University, who is one of the leading researchers in the area.
