Call For Papers

HCVS 2014
Workshop on Horn Clauses for Verification and Synthesis

July 17, 2014 · Vienna, Austria

Most Program Verification and Synthesis problems of interest
can be modeled directly using Horn clauses and many recent
advances in the CLP and CAV communities have centered around
efficiently solving problems presented as Horn clauses.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers working in
the two communities of Constraint/Logic Programming (e.g., ICLP and CP)
and Program Verification community (e.g., CAV, TACAS, and VMCAI)
on the topic of Horn clause based analysis, verification and synthesis.

Horn clauses for verification and synthesis have been advocated
by these two communities in different times and from different
perspectives and this workshop is organized to stimulate interaction
and a fruitful exchange and integration of experiences.

Aims and Scope

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the use of
Horn clauses, constraints, and related formalisms in the following

- Analysis and verification of programs in various programming paradigms
(e.g., imperative, object-oriented, functional, logic,
higher-order, concurrent)
- Program synthesis
- Program testing
- Program transformation
- Constraint solving
- Type systems
- Case studies and tools
- Challenging problems

We solicit regular papers describing theory and implementation of
Horn-clause based analysis, tool descriptions and extended abstracts
describing work-in-progress, and finally also position papers covering
previously published results that are of interest to the workshop.

Invited Speakers

- Daniel Kröning (University of Oxford)
- Michael Leuschel (Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf)
