 SNR 2016
 2nd International Workshop on Symbolic and Numerical Methods for
 Reachability Analysis
 April 11th, 2016, Vienna, Austria
 Affiliated with CPSWeek 2016
 Important Dates
 Submissions deadline: January 20, 2016
 Notification: March 09, 2016
 Final version: March 16, 2016
 Workshop date: April 11, 2016
 Hybrid systems are complex dynamical systems that combine discrete
 and continuous components. Reachability questions, regarding whether a
 system can run into a certain subset of its state space, stand at the
 core of verification and synthesis problems for hybrid systems.
 There are several successful methods for hybrid systems reachability
 analysis. Some methods explicitly construct flow-pipes that
 overapproximate the set of reachable states over time, where efficient
 computation of such overapproximations requires symbolic
 representations such as support functions. Other methods based on
 satisfiability checking technologies, symbolically encode reachability
 properties as logical formulas, while solving such formulas requires
 numerically-driven decision procedures. Last but not least, also
 automated deduction and the usage of theorem provers led to efficient
 analysis approaches. The goal of this workshop is to bring together
 researchers working with different reachability analysis techniques
 and to seek for synergies between symbolic and numerical approaches.
 The SNR workshop solicits papers broadly in the area of verification
 and synthesis of continuous and hybrid systems. The scope of the
 workshop includes, but is not restricted to, the following topics:
 - Reachability analysis approaches for hybrid systems
 - Flow-pipe construction; symbolic state set representations
 - Trajectory generation from symbolic paths; counterexample computation
 - Abstraction techniques for hybrid systems
 - Reliable integration
 - Decision procedures for real arithmetic
 - Automated deduction
 - Logics to reason about hybrid systems
 - Reachability analysis for planning and synthesis
 - Domain-specific approaches in biology, robotics, etc.
 - Stochastic/probabilistic hybrid systems
 - Tools, benchmarks, and case studies
