CAV 2020 : Computer Aided Verification
Conference Series : Computer Aided Verification
Call For Papers
CAV 2020 is the 32nd in a series dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of computer-aided formal analysis methods for hardware and software systems. The conference covers the spectrum from theoretical results to concrete applications, with an emphasis on practical verification tools and the algorithms and techniques that are needed for their implementation. CAV considers it vital to continue spurring advances in hardware and software verification while expanding to new domains such as machine learning, autonomous systems, and computer security. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. A selection of papers is expected to be invited to a special issue of Formal Methods in System Design and the Journal of the ACM.
CAV 2020 will take place in Los Angeles, California, USA.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Algorithms and tools for verifying models and implementations
Algorithms and tools for system synthesis
Algorithms and tools that combine verification and learning
Mathematical and logical foundations of verification and synthesis
Specifications and correctness criteria for programs and systems
Deductive verification using proof assistants
Hardware verification techniques
Program analysis and software verification
Hybrid systems and embedded systems verification
Formal methods for cyber-physical systems
Compositional and abstraction-based techniques for verification
Probabilistic and statistical approaches to verification
Verification methods for parallel and concurrent systems
Testing and run-time analysis based on verification technology
Decision procedures and solvers for verification and synthesis
Applications and case studies in verification and synthesis
Verification in industrial practice
New application areas for algorithmic verification and synthesis
Formal models and methods for security
Formal models and methods for biological systems
Submissions on a wide range of topics are sought, particularly ones that identify new research directions. CAV 2020 is not limited to topics discussed in previous instances of the conference. Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic may communicate with the conference chairs prior to submission.
The CAV award is given annually at the CAV conference for fundamental contributions to the field of Computer-Aided Verification.
CAV Award Nomination deadline: February 20, 2020
For details about the CAV award nomination, please see the following page: http://i-cav.org/2020/cav-award/.
Paper submissions in CAV fall into one of the following three categories (see more information below):
Regular Papers (20 pages max, must be anonymized)
Tool Papers (10 pages max, not anonymized, artifact submission required with paper)
Industrial Experience Reports & Case Studies. (10 pages max, not anonymized)
Papers in all three categories must be submitted by January 23, 2020 AOE, and should be in LNCS format. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with proceedings or submission of material that has already been published elsewhere is not allowed. The review process will include a feedback/rebuttal period where authors will have the option to respond to reviewer comments. The PC chairs may solicit further reviews after the rebuttal period.
