[PVS] Extended Deadline: 4th International Workshop on Systems Software Verification (SSV 09)

4th International Workshop on

              Systems Software Verification (SSV 09)
           Real Software, Real Problems, Real Solutions

June 22-24 2009, Aachen, Germany


Industrial-strength software analysis and verification has advanced in
recent years through the introduction of model checking, automated and
interactive theorem proving, and static analysis techniques as well as
correctness by design, correctness by contract, and model-driven
development. However, many techniques are working under restrictive
assumptions which are invalidated by complex (embedded) system
software such as operating system kernels, low-level device drivers or
microcontroller code.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
developers from both academia and industry, who are facing real
software and real problems to find real, applicable solutions. By
"real" we mean problems such as time-to-market or reliability that the
industry is facing and is trying to fix in software that is deployed
in the market place. A real solution is one that is applicable to the
problem in industry and not one that only applies to an abstract,
academic toy version of it. This forum will discuss software
analysis/development techniques and tools; it will also serve as a
platform to discuss open problems and future challenges in dealing
with existing and upcoming systems level code.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

    * model checking
    * automated and interactive theorem proving
    * static analysis
    * automated testing
    * model-driven development
    * embedded systems development
    * programming languages
    * verifying compilers
    * software certification
    * software tools
    * experience reports

Interested speakers should submit their paper (max 15 pages, ENTCS
style) to http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ssv09 by Feb 15 2009,
23:59h Samoan time. All papers will be subject to peer review under normal
conference standards. Experience reports and papers on work in
progress are welcome as long as there is a clear contribution.
Accepted submissions are planned to be published in ENTCS. Submissions
must be in pdf format and follow the ENTCS style instructions at
