Tenth International Conference on Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation
Savannah, GA, USA, January 18-20, 2009
Early registration deadline: December 19
VMCAI 2009 is the 10th International Conference on Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation. VMCAI 2009 is co-located with POPL 2009 and will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Savannah, Georgia, USA, January 18-20, 2009. Information on how to register for VMCAI is available from the conference web site:
The early registration deadline is December 19, 2008.
VMCAI centers on state-of-the-art research relevant to analysis of programs and systems and drawn from three research communities: Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation. A goal is to facilitate interaction, cross-fertilization, and the advance of hybrid methods that combine two or all three areas. Topics covered by VMCAI include program verification, program certification, model checking, debugging techniques, abstract interpretation, abstract domains, static analysis, type systems, deductive methods, and optimization. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
