*Thirteenth Haifa Verification Conference 2017*_

November 13 - 15, 2017
Tutorials: November 13, 2017
Haifa, Israel

Organized by IBM Research - Haifa


HVC 2017 is an annual conference dedicated to advancing the state-of the
art and state-of-the-practice in verification and testing.
At the conference, researchers and practitioners from academia and
industry network, share ideas, and ponder the future directions of
testing and verification for hardware, software, and complex hybrid systems.

The common goal of the conference topics and participants is to ensure
the correct functionality and performance of complex systems. HVC is the
only conference that brings together experts from all verification and
testing sub-fields, thereby encouraging the migration of methods and
ideas among domains.

HVC 2017 invites the submission of technical papers reporting original research and experience results in all sub-fields of testing and verification applicable to software and hardware. The conference will involve the presentation of peer-reviewed, original technical papers, as well as lectures by guests from industry and academia.

*Special theme this year: verification for security*

In addition to the traditional HVC topics (see below), we plan at least one session dedicated to research and application of verification techniques in security. At least one of our invited keynote talks will be dedicated to this topic as well.

*New this year: tool demos category*. See details on the submission page.


Important dates:

Submission Deadline: July 21, 2017 (11.59 pm GMT)
Author Notification: September 1, 2017
Camera Ready: September 15, 2017
Conference: November 13 - 15, 2017
Tutorials: November 13, 2017


Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:

* Simulation-based verification
* Formal and semi-formal specification, modeling, and verification
* Functional and non-functional software testing
* Software and hardware equivalence checking
* SAT/SMT-based verification algorithms
* Static analysis
* Model checking
* High-level stimuli generation
* Hardware/software co-verification
* Cloud quality
* Validation of data-intensive solutions
* Validation of machine learning algorithms
* Triage and debug technologies
* Post-silicon validation including emulation and acceleration
* Coverage analysis and test minimization
* Testing of mobile and cloud applications
* Software artifacts review and inspection
* Test planning
* Empirical studies on hardware and software quality
* Security verification
* Machine learning techniques for verification



The conference proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS), and handed out in digital format to registered guests of the conference. There are three submission categories this year: regular research paper, poster, and tool demos. Please see the submission page for more details.



The lovely city of Haifa resides on a mountain overlooking the
Mediterranean Sea, and is home to Jews, Muslims, and Christians. Haifa
is also the world center of the Baha’i faith, and the wondrous Baha’i
gardens are a must-see attraction. The conference will be held at IBM
Research - Haifa, situated at the top of the Carmel mountains.


Student grants:

We anticipate a number of student grants to cover part of the travel expenses for full-time students who are authors of accepted papers. Precedence in allocation of these travel grants will be to students who are also presenting a poster or a tool at the conference.
