|SVARM Program and slides|
Synthesis, Verification, and Analysis of Rich Models (SVARM 2011) will take place April 1-3, 2011, as part of ETAPS 2011.
The event is supported by the COST Action IC0901, but the participation is open to all registered participants. The presentations are by invitation.
Participants from COST Action will receive special registration instructions, for other participants the registration proceeds as for other ETAPS workshops.
In any case, the registration will be through the ETAPS web site.
The event explores directions and techniques for making automated reasoning (including analysis and synthesis) applicable to a wider range of problems, as well as making them easier to use by researchers, software developers, hardware designers, and information system users and developers.
Researchers have recently developed a number of useful tools for automated analysis of particular classes of models of computer systems:
Despite these successes, today’s automated analysis methods are not widespread in engineering practice. Among the factors contributing to this state of affairs are the limitations of the tools themselves: insufficient automation, specialized input formats, and no support for high-level synthesis. Another factor is the lack of standards of quality that would easy tool interoperability and give formally certified computer system a competitive advantage over systems without formal assurance guarantees.

The focus of the event is on presentations and discussions; there will be neither electronic nor paper proceedings before the event.
