FMCAD 2014 is the fourteenth in a series of conferences on the theory and applications of formal methods in hardware and system verification. FMCAD provides a leading forum to researchers in academia and industry for presenting and discussing groundbreaking methods, technologies, theoretical results, and tools for reasoning formally about computing systems. FMCAD covers formal aspects of computer-aided system design including verification, specification, synthesis, and testing.
FMCAD was first held in 1996, and was a bi-annual conference until 2006, when the FMCAD and CHARME conferences merged into a single,x annual conference. Before merging, FMCAD was held in the United States on even years and its sister conference, CHARME, was held in Europe on odd years. Since 2006, the FMCAD conference has been held annually at various international venues.
FMCAD 2014 will be co-located with MEMOCODE, the ACM/IEEE International Conference on Formal Methods and Models for Codesign, and DIFTS, International Workshop on Design and Implementation of Formal Tools and Systems in Lausanne, Switzerland. MEMOCODE will take place from October 19 to October 20, 2014, following by a joint FMCAD/MEMOCODE tutorial day on October 21, 2014. DIFTS will take place on October 20, 2014. FMCAD 2014 will continue from October 22 to 24, 2014.
