CALL FOR PAPERS: 14th International Workshop on Verification of Infinite-State Systems, 27 Aug 2012, Paris, FRANCE

http://www.it.uu.se/workshop/infinity2012

INFINITY 2012

Aim:

The aim of the INFINITY workshop is to provide a forum for researchers interested in the 
development of formal methods and algorithmic techniques for the analysis of systems with 
infinitely many states, and their application in automated verification of complex software 
and hardware systems.

Program Committee:

* Mohamed Faouzi Atig(co-chair), Uppsala University, Sweden
* Nathalie Bertrand, INRIA Rennes Bretagne Atlantique, France
* Yu-Fang Chen, Academia Sinica, Taiwan
* Pierre Ganty, Imdea Software,  Spain
* Luk Holk, Uppsala University, Sweden
* Axel Legay, IRISA/INRIA Rennes,  France
* Roland Meyer, University of Kaiserslautern, Germany
* Ruzica Piskac, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Switzerland
* Ahmed Rezine(co-chair), Linkping University, Sweden
* Noam Rinetzky, Queen Mary University of London, United Kingdom
* Martin Vechev, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Switzerland
* Fang Yu, National Chengchi University, Taiwan


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Infinite-state models of software/hardware systems
* Abstraction techniques for infinite-state systems
* Symbolic analysis techniques and data structures for representing infinite state spaces
* Model-checking, static analysis, abstract interpretation,
  preorder/equivalence-checking, and control synthesis for infinite-state systems
* Parameterized networks of parallel processes, dynamic networks, mobile systems
* Systems with unbounded dynamic data and control structures
* Probabilistic and timed systems
* Games in modeling and verification of infinite-state systems
* Verification techniques for security properties, cryptographic protocols
* Verification techniques for systems biology

Paper Submission:

There are two types of submissions.

* Regular papers will be thoroughly evaluated by the programme committee and accepted submissions 
will be published in the proceedings. Authors are invited to submit an original contribution 
presenting unpublished work in the relevant areas. By submitting you agree that, in case of 
acceptance, at least one (co-)author will register and present the paper at the workshop. 
Contributions should be typeset in the EPTCS format and should not exceed 15 pages.

* Presentations are reports on recent (or ongoing) work. It is possible to submit a paper which 
recently appeared (or which is going to appear) in proceedings of another conference, or which has 
not yet been submitted. Neither the paper nor the abstract will be published in the proceedings. 
These contributions will be judged solely on the basis of their attractiveness to the workshop. 
Authors are invited to submit a one-page abstract.

Both kind of papers should be submitted through EasyChair by following the link:
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=infinity2012.

Proceedings:

Pre-proceedings of INFINITY 2012 will be available at the workshop in a printed form. Final 
versions of the papers will appear in a volume of Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer 
Science.
