GOALS & SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE

Research and practice in system verification and testing are
roughly divided into two major paradigms: formal verification
and dynamic verification (testing). Within each paradigm,
algorithms and techniques may differ considerably between
hardware-related solutions and software-related solutions.
However, the common underlying goal of these techniques,
across paradigms and system types, is to ensure the correct
functionality and performance of complex systems. HVC is the
only conference that brings together researchers and
practitioners from all verification and testing sub-fields,
thereby encouraging the migration of methods and ideas among
domains. HVC 2011 invites the submission of technical papers
reporting original research and experience results in all
sub-fields of testing and verification applicable to software,
hardware, and hybrid systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Simulation-based verification
* Formal verification methods
* High-level stimuli generation
* Equivalence checking
* SAT-based verification algorithms
* Classification of hardware bugs
* Static analysis
* Design for verifiability
* Hardware/software co-verification
* Debugging
* Emulation and acceleration
* Formal modeling and specification
* Post-silicon validation
* CSP-based functional verification
* Formal specification languages
* Model checking
* Quality assurance
* Testing methodologies
* Defect prevention
* Test-driven development
* Hybrid verification methods
* Model-based testing
* Verification coverage
* Developer testing
* Review and inspection
* Semi-formal verification
* Test automation and automated test generation
* Coverage analysis and test minimization
* Test planning
* Testing and analysis of concurrent software
* Domain specific testing and analysis
* Functional and performance testing


EVENTS

HVC best paper and best student paper awards: a special session
will present and award the best regular and student papers. These
will be selected by a special committee.

Social events include an excursion, a reception, and an optional
weekend in Jerusalem after the conference.


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.


PAPER SUBMISSION

All submitted papers should be in LNCS format. For details, see:
http://www.springer.com/east/home/computer/lncs

Regular papers: Regular paper submissions should describe
original and unpublished work. Simultaneous submission to other
conferences with proceedings or submission of previously
published material is strictly forbidden. Regular papers should
not exceed fifteen (15) pages in LNCS format. Submissions will
be accepted in electronic form (pdf or postscript), via the
easychair portal. An early email to conference chairs with your
intention to submit a paper would be appreciated.

Tools and experience papers: Tools and experience submissions
should describe a new tool and its features, or new field experience,
and demonstrate effectiveness and applicability. Tools and experience
papers are required to show significant advancements compared with
existing tools and practices. Papers in this track should
not exceed five (6) pages in LNCS format. Tool presentations are
expected to include a short demo.


STUDENTS EVENT

Students who wish to present their work are required to submit a
short (up to two PDF pages in LNCS format) extended abstract to
easychair using http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hvc2011.
Submissions will be reviewed and evaluated by the program committee.
If accepted, the abstract will be included in the Conference
Proceedings, and students will be required to prepare a 70 x 100 cm
poster and present it in the session. The program committee will
issue a number of grants to support students who present their work
at the HVC student event. All poster submissions from outside of
Israel will be considered for the grant.



PROCEEDINGS PUBLICATION

As in previous years, HVC 2011 plans to publish its
post-proceedings as a Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) volume. In addition, HVC 2011 plans to invite
the authors of the top 10%-20% accepted papers to submit
revised versions of their work to a special issue of a journal.
HVC further plans for its papers to become accessible via the
Web of Knowledge.


IMPORTANT DATES

Submission deadline: August 18, 2011
Author notification: September 19, 2011
Conference gathering: December 6-8, 2011
Final Version: January 31, 2012


VENUE

The lovely city of Haifa resides on Mount Carmel 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 in the modern building of the IBM R&D
Labs, situated at the top of the mountain.
