Call For Papers


11th International Workshop on
Microprocessor Test and Verification (MTV 2010)
Common Challenges and Solutions
December 13-14, 2010, Hyatt Regency On Town Lake,
Austin, Texas, USA.

WEBSITE: ( (includes Obsidian's scholarship info)

General Chair: Magdy S. Abadir (Freescale, USA)
Program co-Chair: Li-C. Wang (UCSB, USA)
Program co-Chair: Jay Bhadra (Freescale, USA)

THE PURPOSE of this workshop is to bring researchers and practitioners from
the fields of verification and test together to exchange innovative ideas
and to develop new methodologies to solve the difficult challenges facing
us today in various processor and SOC design environments. In the past few
years, some work has been done on exploiting techniques from test to solve
problems in verification and vice versa. This is the 11th edition of the MTV
Workshop, a testament to its success in providing an ideal environment for
cross-examination of test and verification experiences and innovative solutions.

AREAS OF INTEREST (include, but not limited to):

Validation of microprocessors and SOCs
Test/Verification of multimedia processors
Performance testing
High-level test generation for functional verification
Emulation techniques
Silicon debugging
Formal techniques and their applications
Verification coverage
Test Generation at the transistor level
Equivalence checking of custom circuits
ESL Methodology
Virtual Platforms
Software verification
Circuit level verification
Switch-level circuit modeling
Timing validation techniques
Path analysis for verification or test
Design error models
Design error diagnosis
Design for Testability or Verifiability
Optimizing SAT procedures with applications to testing and formal verification


Authors are invited to submit postscript or PDF versions of
their papers (maximum 6 pages), with author names, affiliation, addresses,
telephone and fax numbers, e-mail address, and the person who will present
the work if accepted. Authors of accepted papers can choose to submit the full
paper for inclusion in the formal Workshop proceeding published by IEEE.
Special Sessions, Panels and Tutorials: Proposals for special sessions, panels
and tutorials are also invited. Please email the abstract of your proposals
directly to the program chair as early as possible before paper
submission deadline.
