Call for Submissions
3rd International Workshop on
Applied Verification for Continuous and Hybrid Systems
CPSWeek 2016, Vienna, Austria, April 11, 2016

The workshop on applied verification for continuous and hybrid systems
(ARCH) brings together researchers and practitioners, and establishes a
curated set of benchmarks submitted by academia and industry.
Verification of continuous and hybrid systems is increasing in
importance due to new cyber-physical systems that are safety- or
operation-critical. This workshop addresses verification techniques for
continuous and hybrid systems with a special focus on the transfer from
theory to practice. Topics include, but are not limited to
- Proposals for new benchmark problems (not necessarily yet solvable)
- Tool presentations
- Tool executions and evaluations based on ARCH benchmarks
- Experience reports including open issues for industrial success

Researchers are welcome to submit examples, tools and benchmarks that
have already appeared in brief form, but whose details were omitted. The
online benchmark repository allows researchers to include modeling
details, parameters, simulation results, etc. Submissions are
encouraged, but not required, to include executable data (models,
configuration files, code etc.). It is not required to show that the
benchmark has a solution; it suffices that the problem is described in
enough detail that somebody else can try to solve it.

The paper with the most promising benchmark results receives a prize of
500 Euros sponsored by Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany. The winner is
preselected by the program committee and determined by an audience

General Submission Guidelines
Submissions consist of papers (ideally 3-8 pages) and optional files
(e.g. models or traces) submitted through the ARCH'16 EasyChair web
site at

ARCH16 will provide proceedings in the EasyChair EPiC series, indexed
by DBLP. Authors should use the EasyChair template at The papers have to be
classified below their title as benchmark proposal, tool presentation,
benchmark results, or experience report by writing the classification in
parentheses in a line below the title. Submissions receive at least 3
anonymous reviews, including one from industry and one from academia.

A zip archive with additional data for the benchmark (description
details, model files, sample traces, code, known results, etc.) is to be
submitted together with the extended abstract. Benchmarks can be
academic or industrial, of small size or extensive case studies.
