CALL FOR PARTICIPATION, REGISTRATION, and POSTERS

Tools and Techniques for Verification of System Infrastructure (TTVSI)

  http://www.ttvsi.org/

  Today's increasingly computer-based society is dependent on the
correctness and reliability of crucial infrastructure, such as
programming languages, compilers, networks, and microprocessors. One
way to achieve the required level of assurance is to use formal
specification and proof, and tool support for this approach has
steadily grown to the point where the specification and verification
of important system infrastructure is now feasible.

  To survey the state of the art and discuss future possibilities and
challenges, we are pleased to announce a two day research meeting, to
be held in honour of Prof. Michael J. C. Gordon FRS on the occasion of
his 60th birthday.

Poster Presentations.
=====================

  Attendees of TTVSI are invited to submit abstracts for posters,
describing research related to the theme of the conference. The
abstracts will be reviewed and accepted abstracts will appear in the
proceedings of TTVSI. Posters will be presented in sessions during the
meeting.

FORMAT. Poster submissions should be 1 page in length, using LNCS
article format. The submission should be an extended abstract
summarizing the poster contents. Please email the submission to
program@ttvsi.org by the poster abstract deadline. All received
poster abstracts will be acknowledged by email. Instructions on
poster preparation will be sent to authors of accepted abstracts.
