The aim of AVoCS 2009 is to contribute to the interaction and exchange of ideas among members of the international research community on tools and techniques for the verification of critical systems. The subject is to be interpreted broadly and inclusively. It covers all aspects of automated verification, including model checking, theorem proving, abstract interpretation, and refinement pertaining to various types of critical systems (safety-critical, security-critical, business-critical, performance-critical, etc.). Contributions that describe different techniques, or industrial case studies are encouraged.
The technical programme will consist of invited and contributed talks and also allow for short presentations of ongoing work. The workshop will be relatively informal, with an emphasis on discussion.
Previous AVoCS workshops were held at the University of Oxford (2001 and 2007), the University of Birmingham (2002), the University of Southampton (2003), the Royal Society in London (2004), the University of Warwick (2005), LORIA, Nancy (2006) and the University of Glasgow (2008).
