Call For Papers

Numerical computations are ubiquitous in digital systems: monitoring, supervision, prediction, simulation and signal processing rely heavily on numerical calculus to achieve desired goals. Design and verification of numerical algorithms has a unique set of challenges, which set it apart from rest of software verification. To achieve the verification and validation of global system properties, numerical techniques need to precisely represent local behaviours of each component. The implementation of numerical techniques on modern hardware adds another layer of approximation because of the use of finite representations of infinite precision numbers that usually lack basic arithmetic properties, such as commutativity and associativity. Finally, the development and analysis of cyber-physical systems (CPS), which involve interacting continuous and discrete components pose a further challenge. It is hence imperative to develop logical and mathematical techniques for the reasoning about programmability and reliability. The NSV workshop is dedicated to the development of such techniques.

===============
Topics
===============

The scope of the workshop includes, but is not restricted to, the following topics:

Quantitative and qualitative analysis of hybrid systems
Models and abstraction techniques
Optimal control of dynamical systems
Parameter identification for hybrid systems
Numerical optimisation methods
Hybrid and embedded systems verification
Applications of hybrid systems to systems biology
Propagation of uncertainties, deterministic and probabilistic models
Specifications of correctness for numerical programs
Formal specification and verification of numerical programs
Quality of finite precision implementations
Numerical properties of control software
Validation for space, avionics, automotive and real-time applications
Validation for scientific computing programs

======================
Submission information
======================

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

- Regular papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are under submission. Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. They should clearly identify what has been accomplished and why it is significant.Regular paper submissions should not exceed 15 pages in LNCS style, plus possibly bibliography and appendices. However, program committee members are not required to read the appendices, thus papers must be intelligible without them.

- Short papers are also welcome: they should present tools, benchmarks, case-studies or be extended abstracts of ongoing research. Short papers should not exceed 6 pages, excluding extra material as above.

All accepted papers will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) with Springer Verlag.
Papers should be submitted (as PDF) through easychair
