[isabelle] VERIFY'08: deadline extension

The deadline of VERIFY'08 has been extended for 2 weeks.

If you don't have a paper at IJCAR this year, but maybe some work-in-progress that people should know about, this is the perfect opportunity to visit IJCAR and Sydney!


                                CALL FOR PAPERS

	     5th International Verification Workshop - VERIFY'08

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

			  in connection with IJCAR 2008

		      August 10-11, 2008, Sydney, Australia


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

The VERIFY workshop series aims 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?

The scope of VERIFY includes topics such as

+ ATP techniques in verification 	      + Information flow control
+ Case studies (specif. & verific.) 	      + Refinement & Decomposition
+ Combination of verification tools 	      + Reliability of mobile computing
+ Integration of ATPs and CASE-tools 	      + Reuse of specifications & proofs
+ Compositional & modular reasoning 	      + Management of change
+ Experience reports on using verification    + Safety-critical systems
+ Gaps between problems and techniques 	      + Security models
+ Formal methods for fault tolerance 	      + Tool support for formal methods

Submissions are encouraged in one of the following two categories:

 A.  Regular papers: Submissions in this category should describe previously
     unpublished work (completed or in progress), including descriptions of
     research, tools, and applications.  Papers must be formatted following the
     Springer LNCS guidelines and be 6-15 pages long.

 B.  Discussion papers: Submissions in this category are intended to initiate
     discussions and should address controversial issues, and may include
     provocative statements.  Papers must be formatted following the Springer
     LNCS guidelines and be 3-15 pages long.

Submission of papers is via EasyChair at:

The workshop proceedings will be distributed at the workshop as a collection
of the accepted papers; they will also be made available as CEUR Workshop
