12th International Workshop on Automated Verification of Critical Systems - AVOCS 2012
18-20th September 2012
FINAL CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
The aim of AVoCS 2012 is to contribute to the interaction and exchange of ideas among members of the
international research community working on developing tools and techniques for the verification of
The workshop will take place in Bamberg which is located in the Upper Franconia region of Northern
Bavaria in Germany. It is easily reachable by train from the major airports in Frankfurt and Munich and
from the regional airport in Nuremberg. Bamberg has a rich history dating back to its founding in the
10th century. The historic city center was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993 making the
city a popular tourist destination. The city also has a reputation for producing excellent beers from its
eight local breweries, some of which we will taste in a lovely beer garden overlooking Bamberg.
The technical programme will consist of 4 invited and 16 contributed talks. The workshop will be
relatively informal, with an emphasis on discussion.
