[isabelle] Call for Papers -- International Workshop on Rigorous Protocol Engineering (WRiPE 2011)
Please ignore the previous email, and read the following CFP for WRiPE 2011
1st International Workshop on Rigorous Protocol Engineering (WRiPE 2011)
Co-located with the 19th IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols
WRiPE is an inter-disciplinary workshop that will bring together researchers
from the networking, formal methods and programming languages communities.
ICNP started nearly twenty years ago as a conference focused on the
application of formal methods to the design and analysis of protocols
primarily from the telecommunication space. This initial focus on formal
methods has diminished over the years as ICNP has shifted towards research
on Internet protocols. The aim of WRiPE is to reinvigorate and revitalize
the application of formal methods to the design and analysis of network
We think the time is ripe for this type of workshop because (1) verification
techniques have matured greatly in the last few decades, (2) verification
tools such as model checkers, theorem provers, and SAT/SMT solvers have
attracted a sizable user base, and (3) such techniques and tools have not
traditionally been applied to network protocols (in particular IP, which is
now the dominant networking technology).
By network protocols, we include traditional IP routing protocols, wireless
multi-hop routing, BGP policies, transport protocols, application-layer
overlay networks, and enterprise and data center networks. These may also
include security extensions to these protocols, e.g. IPSec and Secure BGP,
as well as protocols developed using emerging software router platforms such
as OpenFlow. By verification technique, we mean any rigorous method of
that an implementations satisfies a given specification, or that reliable
conclusions can be extracted from measurements.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Correct-by-Construction methods: meta-model frameworks (logics, algebras,
calculi, etc.) for Internet protocols
* Applications of model checkers, theorem provers, and SAT/SMT solvers to
Internet protocol design.
* Domain specific languages (declarative, functional, or logic-based) that
raise the level of abstraction in Internet protocol development.
* Formal-methods based techniques for run-time verification and testing of
* Combining model checking and theorem proving for verifying
* Model finding techniques for network configuration.
Paper submission will not be blind. The submissions will indicate the names
or affiliations of the authors in the paper. Please do not submit
abbreviated versions of journal or conference papers. In particular,
submissions to WRiPE must not be concurrent with a substantially similar
submission to a conference or workshop, including condensed versions of work
that has been submitted and is currently under review. We do encourage
submissions of work-in-progress based on novel and interesting ideas.
Submitted papers must be no longer than six (6) pages in double-column
format with standard margins (i.e., at least one inch all around) and
at least a 10 point font. This length includes everything: figures, tables,
references, appendices and so forth. Longer submissions will not be
reviewed. Papers should include a title; full list of authors, their
organizations and email addresses; and an abstract of fewer than 200 words.
* Submission deadline for papers June 11, 2011.
* Notification to authors July 30, 2011.
* Camera ready due Aug 20, 2011.
* Workshop date Oct 17, 2011
