Call For Papers
Second Call for Papers
First International Workshop on
Verification and Program Transformation
July 13th and 14th, 2013, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Co-Located with the 25th International Conference on Computer Aided
The First International Workshop on Verification and Program Transformation
(VPT-2013) aims to bring together researchers working in two different
areas, Verification and Program Transformation. VPT 2013 will be a CAV 2013
Workshop and held on July 13th and 14th, 2013.
The workshop will provide a forum where all interactions of the two fields
can be presented and discussed.
It workshop will solicit research, position, applications and system
description papers with a special emphasis on case studies, demonstrating
viability of the interfaces between the two research fields in a broad
On the one hand presentations of the methods, techniques and tools developed
in program transformations and successfully applied for verification of
programs, systems and protocols specified by programs are welcomed.
In opposite direction, papers describing the approaches to strengthening and
optimization of program transformations by model checking, automated and
interactive theorem proving, SAT- and SMT-based methods are strongly
The papers dealing with neighboring areas, such as testing and program
synthesis are welcomed as well.
Topics of interest for VPT 2013 include, but are not limited to:
* Verification by Program Transformation
* Verification Techniques in Program Transformation and Synthesis
* Verification and Certification of Programs Transformations
* Program Analysis and Transformation
* Program Testing and Transformation
* Case studies
