                           SynCoP 2018
5th International Workshop on the SYNthesis of COmplex Parameters
                      (formerly SynCoP + PV)

                     (ETAPS satellite event)


SynCoP (formerly SynCoP + PV — International Workshop on Parameterized
Verification) aims at bringing together researchers working on
verification and
parameter synthesis for systems with discrete or continuous parameters, in
which the parameters influence the behavior of the system in ways that are
complex and difficult to predict. Such problems may arise for real-time,
hybrid or probabilistic systems in a large variety of application
domains. The
parameters can be continuous (e.g., timing, probabilities, costs) or
(e.g., number of processes). The goal can be to identify suitable parameters
to achieve desired behavior, or to verify the behavior for a given range of
parameter values.

The workshop will take place on April 14-15, 2018, in Thessaloniki, Greece,
as a satellite event of ETAPS.

Abstracts:                     January 15, 2018 (AoE)
Notification:                  January 22, 2018
Final verison of abstracts:    March, 20, 2018
Workshop:                      April 14-15, 2018


The scientific subject of the workshop covers (but is not limited to) the
following areas:
 * parameter synthesis
 * parametric model checking
 * regular model checking
 * robustness analysis
 * parameterized logics, decidability and complexity issues
 * formalisms such as parametric timed and hybrid automata, parametric
time(d) Petri nets, parametric probabilistic (timed) automata, parametric
Markov Decision Processes, networks of identical processes
 * specifications in automata and logic, term and graph rewriting, Petri
nets, process algebra,…
 * validation methods via assertional and regular model checking,
reachability and coverability
decision procedures, abstractions, theorem proving, constraint solving,…
 * interactions between discrete and continuous parameters
 * tools and applications to hardware design, cache coherence protocols,
security and communication
protocols, multithreaded and concurrent programs, programs with relaxed
memory models, mobile and
distributed systems, database languages and systems, biological systems,
