Fourth Verified Software Competition (VSComp) 2014 14-15 June 2014 http://vscomp.org Organizers: Ernie Cohen, Marcelo Frias, Peter Müller, Natarajan Shankar The Fourth Verified Software Competition (VSComp) aims to showcase the progress in verification technology. The competition will occur over 48 hours during the weekend of 14/15 June starting with the publication of the challenge problems at 0900 GMT of Sat June 14 and ending with the submission deadline for the solutions at 0900 GMT of Mon June 16. Teams of up to three individuals can register to participate just prior to the start of the competition at http://vscomp.org. The competition will consist of five verification challenges (with possible sub-problems) spanning a range of domains, including (but not limited to) sequential and concurrent algorithms, refinement, assertional verification, and metatheory. Teams will have to solve the challenge problems using mechanized tools. Teams are allowed to use multiple tools to tackle the challenges. Only the best three problem solutions from each team will be taken into consideration for evaluating team performance. An FAQ Wiki page will be maintained at the website to clarify questions that might come up before or during the competition. After the competition, solutions will be made publicly available for peer review by the other teams. Teams should be available to answer questions during the peer review process, and if necessary, be prepared to make their verification tools available for experimentation. Based on the results of the peer review, the organizers will evaluate the solutions for correctness, completeness, and clarity. The winners will be given short speaking slots at VSTTE 2014 which takes place in Vienna during July 17, 18, 2014. The competition will run on an honor system to ensure that above guidelines are being followed by each of the teams. We especially encourage the participation of all-student teams and teams that are using tools developed by others. Questions or comments about the contest should be sent to vscomp2014 at gmail.com.
