 Call for Papers
 14th Automated Verification of Critical Systems (AVoCS) 2014 Workshop
 24-26th September, 2014
 University of Twente, Netherlands
 Call for Papers
 The aim of Automated Verification of Critical Systems (AVoCS) 2014 is
 to contribute to the interaction and exchange of ideas among members
 of the international research community on tools and techniques for
 the verification of critical systems. The subject is to be interpreted
 broadly and inclusively. It covers all aspects of automated
 verification, including model checking, theorem proving, SAT/SMT
 constraint solving, abstract interpretation, and refinement pertaining
 to various types of critical systems which need to meet stringent
 dependability requirements (safety-critical, business-critical,
 performance-critical, etc.). Contributions that describe different
 techniques, or industrial case studies are encouraged. The technical
 programme will consist of invited and contributed talks and also allow
 for short presentations of research ideas. The workshop will be
 relatively informal, with an emphasis on discussion.
 Topics include (but are not limited to)
     Model Checking
     Automatic and Interactive Theorem Proving
     SAT, SMT or Constraint Solving for Verification
     Abstract Interpretation
     Specification and Refinement
     Requirements Capture and Analysis
     Verification of Software and Hardware
     Specification and Verification of Fault Tolerance and Resilience
     Probabilistic and Real-Time Systems
     Dependable Systems
     Verified System Development
     Industrial Applications
 AVoCS 2014 is coorganised and colocated with SPES_XT Summer School
 on Model-based design and analysis of cyber-physical systems:
 A registration reduction is offered for participants attending
 both events.
 The workshop will have three invited speakers:
   Laura Kovacs (Chalmers, Sweden) will speak about automated assertion
   Alastair Donaldson (Imperial College, U.K.) will speak about verification
     of OpenCL kernels.
   Guy Broadfoot (U.K.) will speak about fighting the battle to get industry
     to adopt formal based tools.
 Important Dates
   Submission (abstract for full paper): 16th June 2014
   Submission (full papers): 23rd June 2014
   Notification (full papers): 30th July 2014
   Submission (research ideas): 7th August 2014
   Notification (research ideas): 14th August 2014
   Submission of final versions: 1st September 2014
   Workshop: 24-26th September 2014 (2.5 days, ends 26th lunchtime)
 Submission Details
 Full Papers: Submissions of full papers to the workshop must not have
 been published or be concurrently considered for publication
 elsewhere. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and judged on the
 basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and
 presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop. Final versions of
 the papers must be written in English and not exceed 15 pages. For
 the initial submission you can use any format since the pre-proceedings
 will be a technical report. However, we suggest that you use the EASST
 template (see below for details) as this will make it easier later on.
 Research ideas: AVoCS'14 encourages the submissions of research ideas
 in order to stimulate discussions at the workshop. Reports on ongoing
 work or surveys on work published elsewhere are welcome. The Programme
 Committee will select research ideas on the basis of submitted
 abstracts according to significance and general interest. Research
 ideas must be written in English and not exceed 2 pages.
 Submission Site: The submission site will be available through EasyChair
 at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=avocs2014
 Conference Proceedings & Special Journal Issue
 At the workshop, pre-proceedings will be available in the form of a
 University of Twente Technical Report; this report will also include
 the research ideas.
 After the workshop, the authors of accepted full papers will have
 about one month in order to revise their papers for publication in the
 workshop post-proceedings which will appear in the Electronic
 Communications of the EASST Open Access Journal. Research ideas will
 not be part of the proceedings in the Open Access Journal.
 EASST Submission Format
 There is a dedicated AVoCS 2014 EASST template, please go to EASST
 template repository at http://journal.ub.tu-berlin.de/template/
 and look for the AVoCS 2014 entry - this contains the LaTeX and Word
 templates that you will need for the conference post-proceedings.
 We will invite authors of a selection of the best papers presented at
 the workshop to submit extended versions of their work for publication
 in a special issue of Elsevier's journal Science of Computer
