                           Call for papers

                             SynCoP 2014
  1st International Workshop on the SYNthesis of COntinuous Parameters

                       (ETAPS satellite event)


SynCoP aims at bringing together researchers working on parameter 
synthesis for systems with continuous variables, where the parameters 
consist of a (usually dense) set of constant values. Such problems arise 
for real-time, hybrid or probabilistic systems where the goal is to 
identify suitable parameters to achieve desired behavior, or to verify 
the behavior for a given range of parameter values. A parameter could 
be, e.g., a delay in a real-time system, or a reaction rate in a 
biological cell model.

The workshop will take place on Sunday the 6th of April 2014, in 
Grenoble, France, as a satellite event of ETAPS 2014.

The workshop will be able to (at least partially) support the travel and 
the ETAPS workshop registration fees for one or two PhD or Master 

Abstract: January 13th, 2014
Full papers: January 20th, 2014
Notification: February 20th, 2014

The scientific subject of the workshop covers (but is not limited to) 
the following areas:
* parameter synthesis,
* parametric model checking,
* robustness analysis,
* formalisms such as parametric timed and hybrid automata, parametric 
time(d) Petri nets, parametric probabilistic automata,
* applications to major areas of computer science and control engineering.


The content of papers should be original and not submitted elsewhere. 
All papers will be assigned to at least three reviews.

The page limit is 15 pages in the EPTCS format (http://style.eptcs.org/).
All accepted papers will be published in the Electronic Proceedings in 
Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) series, that are free and open 
access online proceedings.
The papers will be referenced in major databases such as DBLP, and
