Topics/Call fo Papers

12th International Workshop on
Automated Verification of Critical Systems
18-20th September 2012
Bamberg, Germany

The aim of AVoCS 2011 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, SAT/SMT constraint solving, abstract interpretation, and
refinement pertaining to various types of critical systems which need
to meet stringent dependability requirements (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.

Submission Details
Full Papers: Submissions of full papers to the workshop must not have
been published or be concurrently considered for publication
elsewhere. All submissions will be peer-reviewed and judged on the
basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and
presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop. Final versions of
the papers must be written in English and not exceed 15 pages
(excluding the title page) in the EASST LaTeX or MS Word format
Short Contributions: AVoCS'12 encourages the submissions of short
contributions in order to stimulate discussions at the workshop.
Reports on ongoing work or surveys on work published elsewhere are
welcome. The Programme Committee will select short contributions on
the basis of submitted abstracts according to significance and general
interest. Short contributions must be written in English and not
exceed 2 pages (excluding the title page) in the EASST LaTeX or MS
Word format (

After the workshop, the authors of accepted papers will have about one
month in order to revise their papers for publication in the workshop
post-proceedings which will appear in the Electronic Communications of
the EASST.
We will invite authors of a selection of the best papers presented at
the workshop to submit extended versions of their work for publication
in a special issue of Elsevier's journal Science of Computer
