Welcome to WING 2007!
Satellite Workshop of CALCULEMUS 2007 in the frame of the RISC Summer 2007 conference series
The increasing power of automated theorem proving and computer algebra have opened new perspectives for computer aided program verification, in particular for the automatic generation of inductive assertions in order to reason about loops and recursion. Especially promising breakthroughs are the invariant generation techniques by Gröbner bases, quantifier elimination, and algorithmic combinatorics, which can be used in conjunction with model checking, theorem proving, static analysis and abstract interpretation.
Program verification has a long research tradition but, so far, has had relatively little impact on practical software development in industry. However, the design and implementation of reliable software still is an important issue and any progress in this area will be of utmost importance for the future development of IT.
The logically deep parts of the code are characterized by (nested) loops or recursions. For these parts, formal program verification is an appropriate tool. One of its biggest challenges is the automated discovery of inductive assertions, leading to the discovery of safety and security properties of programs.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers from several fields of abstract interpretation, computational logic and computer algebra to support reasoning about loops, in particular by using algorithmic combinatorics, narrowing/widening techniques, static analysis, polynomial algebra, quantifier elimination and model checking.
We encourage submissions presenting work in progress, tools under development, as well as research of PhD students, such that the workshop can become a forum for active dialog between the groups involved in this new research area.
Relevant topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
The accepted papers will be distributed to the participants as a working proceedings booklet (technical report).
The post-workshop proceedings volume will be published as a special issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation.
