HVC 2016 is an annual conference dedicated to advancing the state-of the
art and state-of-the-practice in verification and testing.
At the conference, researchers and practitioners from academia and
industry network, share ideas, and ponder the future directions of
testing and verification for hardware, software, and complex hybrid systems.

The common goal of the conference topics and participants is to ensure
the correct functionality and performance of complex systems. HVC is the
only conference that brings together experts from all verification and
testing sub-fields, thereby encouraging the migration of methods and
ideas among domains.

HVC 2016 invites the submission of technical papers reporting original
research and experience results in all sub-fields of testing and
verification applicable to software and hardware. The conference will
involve the presentation of peer-reviewed, original technical papers, as
well as lectures by guests from industry and academia.

The conference proceedings will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes
in Computer Science series (LNCS), and handed out in digital format for
to registered guests of the conference.


Important dates:

Paper submission deadline: July 14, 2016 - 11.59 pm GMT
Author acceptance notification: September 5, 2016
Final manuscripts due: September 16, 2016
Poster submission deadline: September 30 - 11.59 pm GMT
Conference: November 14 - 17, 2016
Tutorials: November 14, 2016


Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:

* Simulation-based verification
* Formal and semi-formal specification, modeling, and verification
* Functional and non-functional software testing
* Software and hardware equivalence checking
* SAT/SMT-based verification algorithms
* Static analysis
* Model checking
* High-level stimuli generation
* Hardware/software co-verification
* Triage and debug technologies
* Post-silicon validation including emulation and acceleration
* Coverage analysis and test minimization
* Testing of mobile and cloud applications
* Software artifacts review and inspection
* Test planning
* Empirical studies on hardware and software quality
* Security verification
* Machine learning techniques for verification


Detailed instructions for electronic submission will be posted on the
HVC conference web site
( For
additional information regarding paper submissions please contact the
Program Chair Roderick Bloem.


The lovely city of Haifa resides on a mountain 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 at IBM
Research - Haifa, situated at the top of the Carmel mountains.


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.
Precedence in allocation of these travel grants will be to students who
are also presenting a poster at the conference.
