21st International Conference on
Computer Aided Verification
CAV 2009
June 26 - July 2, 2009
Grenoble, France
Aims and Scope
CAV 2009 is the 21st in a series dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of computer-aided formal analysis methods for hardware and software systems. CAV considers it vital to continue its leadership in hardware verification, maintain its recent momentum in software verification, and consider new domains such as biological systems. The conference covers the spectrum from theoretical results to concrete applications, with an emphasis on practical verification tools and the algorithms and techniques that are needed for their implementation. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. A selection of papers will be invited to a special issue of the International Journal on Formal Methods and System Design.
Topics of interest include:
There will be pre-conference workshops on June 26-28. The main conference will take place on June 28-July 2. There will be tutorials on the first day of the conference (June 28). Please see the conference website for details.
CAV Award
See below for nominations for the CAV Award, established
For a specific fundamental contribution or a series of outstanding contributions to the field of Computer Aided Verification.
The award of $10,000 will be granted to an individual or a group of individuals chosen by the Award Committee from a list of nominations. The Award Committee may choose to make no award.
The CAV Award shall be presented in an award ceremony at CAV and a citation will be published in a Journal of Record (currently, Formal Methods in System Design).
Paper Submission
There are two categories of submissions:
A. Regular Papers: Submissions, not exceeding fourteen (14) pages using Springer's LNCS format, should contain original research, and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution. For papers reporting experimental results, authors are strongly encouraged to make their data available with their submission. Submissions reporting on case studies in an industrial context are strongly invited, and should describe details, weaknesses and strength in sufficient depth. Simultaneous submission to other conferences with proceedings or submission of material that has already been published elsewhere is not allowed.
B. Tool Presentations: Submissions, not exceeding six (6) pages using Springer's LNCS format, should describe the implemented tool and its novel features. A demonstration is expected to accompany a tool presentation. Papers describing tools that have already been presented (in any conference) will be accepted only if significant and clear enhancements to the tool are reported and implemented.
Papers exceeding the stated maximum length run the risk of rejection without review. For regular papers, an appendix can be joined to the submissions providing additional material such as details on proofs or experimentations. The appendix is not guaranteed to be read or taken into account by the reviewers and it should not contain informations necessary to the understanding and the evaluation of the presented work. The review process will include a feedback/rebuttal period where authors will have the option to respond to reviewer comments.
Papers can be submitted in PDF or PS format. Submission is done with EasyChair. Informations about the submission procedure will be available at:
