CAV 2010
22nd International Conference on Computer Aided Verification
Edinburgh, UK, July 15-19, 2010

CAV 2010 is the 22nd in a series dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of computer-aided formal analysis methods for hardware and software systems. This year, CAV is part of the 5th International Federated Logic Conference (FLoC 2010), which includes CAV and seven other conferences/symposia: CSF, ICLP, IJCAR, ITP, LICS, RTA and SAT.

CAV considers it vital to continue its leadership in hardware verification, maintain its recent momentum in software verification, and consider new domains such as biological systems. The conference covers the spectrum from theoretical results to concrete applications, with an emphasis on practical verification tools and the algorithms and techniques that are needed for their implementation. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. A selection of papers will be invited to a special issue of the International Journal on Formal Methods in System Design.

Topics of interest include:

  • Model checking techniques
  • Algorithms and tools for verifying models and implementations
  • Hardware verification techniques
  • Hybrid systems and embedded systems verification
  • Program analysis and software verification
  • Modeling and specification formalisms
  • Deductive, compositional, and abstraction techniques for verification
  • Testing and runtime analysis based on verification technology
  • Applications and case studies
  • Verification in industrial practice
  • Formal methods for biological systems
