                             CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Session: Design, Testing and Formal Verification Techniques for Integrated Circuits and Systems

                                        DTVCS 2008

                         August 18-20, 2008 (Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, USA)

Special Session in the IASTED International Conference on Circuits and Systems (CS 2008)
The IASTED International Conference on Circuits and Systems (CS 2008) will take place in
Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, USA, August 18-20, 2008.
URL: http://www.iasted.org/conferences/cfp-625.html.

Aims and Scope
The main target of the Special Session DTVCS is to bring together engineering researchers,
computer scientists, practitioners and people from industry to exchange theories, ideas,
techniques and experiences related to the areas of design, testing and formal verification techniques
for integrated circuits and systems. Contributions on UML and formal paradigms based on process algebras,
petri-nets, automaton theory and BDDs in the context of design, testing and formal verification techniques
for integrated circuits and systems are also encouraged.

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

* digital, analog, mixed-signal and RF test
* built-in self test
* theory and foundations: model checking, SAT-based methods, use of PSL, compositional methods and probabilistic methods
* applications of formal methods: equivalence checking, CSP applications and transaction-level verification
* verification through hybrid techniques
* verification methods based on hardware description/system-level languages (e.g. VHDL, SystemVerilog and SystemC)
* testing and verification applications: tools, industrial experience reports and case studies
