		        CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

	  3rd International Verification Workshop (VERIFY'06)

 What are the verification problems? What are the deduction techniques?

		 in connection with IJCAR'06 at FLoC'06

		    August 15-16, 2006, Seattle, USA

            [http://www.easychair.org/FLoC-06/VERIFY.html]

The formal verification of   critical information systems has  a  long
tradition as   one  of the  main  areas of  application for  automated
theorem  proving.    Nevertheless,  the  area  is  of  still   growing
importance as the number of computers affecting  everyday life and the
complexity of  these systems are both increasing.   The purpose of the
VERIFY workshop  series is to  discuss   problems arising  during  the
formal  modeling   and  verification  of  information systems  and  to
investigate suitable solutions.   Possible  perspectives include those
of automated theorem  proving,  tool support, system  engineering, and
applications.

The   VERIFY   workshops  aim  at  bringing  together  people  who are
interested in the development of safety and security critical systems,
in formal  methods, in the  development  of automated theorem  proving
techniques, and  in  the  development  of  tool   support.   Practical
experiences  gained in realistic verifications  are of interest to the
automated theorem proving community and new theorem proving techniques
should be transferred into   practice.  The overall objective  of  the
VERIFY workshops is to identify open problems  and to discuss possible
solutions under the theme

What are the verification problems? What are the deduction techniques?

In  2006,   VERIFY will  specifically   consider issues  regarding the
application of "tool support   for formal modeling,  verification  and
stepwise  system  development" without excluding submissions regarding
other topics in the focus of the  workshop.  Therefore, submissions in
this area are especially encouraged.
