[PVS] [fm-announcements] NFM 2012 Call For Participation



===================================================
                        CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

 Fourth NASA Formal Methods Symposium

 http://shemesh.larc.nasa.gov/nfm2012/index.html

 April 3-5, 2012

 Norfolk, Virginia, USA

===================================================

The NFM 2012 program is available online:

http://shemesh.larc.nasa.gov/nfm2012/program.html

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN

To register: http://shemesh.larc.nasa.gov/nfm2012/registration.html

There will not be a registration fee charged to participants.
All interested individuals, including non-US citizens, are
welcome to attend, to listen to the talks, and to participate
in discussions; however, all attendees must register.


The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is a forum for theoreticians
and practitioners from academia, industry, and government, with the
goals of identifying challenges and providing solutions to achieving
assurance in mission- and safety-critical systems. Within NASA,
for example, such systems include autonomous robots, separation
assurance algorithms for aircraft, Next Generation Air Transportation
(NextGen), and autonomous rendezvous and docking for spacecraft.
Moreover, emerging paradigms such as code generation and safety
cases are bringing with them new challenges and opportunities. The
focus of the symposium will be on formal techniques, their theory,
current capabilities, and limitations, as well as their application to
aerospace, robotics, and other safety-critical systems.
