                          VMCAI 2009

                Tenth International Conference on 
   Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation

             Savannah, GA, USA, January 18-20, 2009

               http://cs.uni-muenster.de/vmcai09

===============================================================================

VMCAI 2009 is the 10th International Conference on Verification, Model
Checking, and Abstract Interpretation. VMCAI 2009 is co-located with
POPL 2009 and will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Savannah,
Georgia, USA, January 18-20, 2009. Information on how to register for
VMCAI is available from the conference web site:

    http://cs.uni-muenster.de/vmcai09

The early registration deadline is December 19, 2008.

VMCAI centers on state-of-the-art research relevant to analysis of
programs and systems and drawn from three research communities:
Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation. A goal is
to facilitate interaction, cross-fertilization, and the advance of
hybrid methods that combine two or all three areas.  Topics covered by
VMCAI include program verification, program certification, model
checking, debugging techniques, abstract interpretation, abstract
domains, static analysis, type systems, deductive methods, and
optimization. The proceedings of the conference will be published in
the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.


Invited Talks:
==============

   Allen Emerson, co-recipient of 2008 Turing Award (Univ. of Texas):
      Model Checking: Progress and Problems
