[PVS] CfP: TTSS'08 - Harnessing Theories for Tool Support inSoftware



                    CALL FOR PAPERS
                    ===============

             2nd International Workshop on
 Harnessing Theories for Tool Support in Software (TTSS'08)
            http://www.iist.unu.edu/ttss08/
            15-16 June 2008, Nanjing, China

Co-located with TASE 2008 (http://seg.nju.edu.cn/tase08/)

Conference Topics
-----------------

The aim of the workshop is to bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and government to present and discuss ideas about:

a) How to deal with the complexity of software projects by multi-view modeling and separation of concerns about the design of functionality, interaction, concurrency, and extra-functionality, and
b) How to ensure correctness and dependability of software using formal methods and tools of modeling, design, verification and validation into design and development processes and environments.
The workshop will provide enough time for discussion on problems and research. Each presentation will be 25 minutes followed by 10 minutes discussion. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

* Mathematical frameworks, methods and tools for model-driven development
* Models, calculus and tool support for component-based and object-oriented software
* rCOS and relational mathematical frameworks of object and component systems and their tool support
