TACAS 2011

Tools and Algorithms for the Construction and Analysis of Systems

TACAS is a forum for researchers, developers and users interested in rigorously based tools and algorithms for the construction and analysis of systems. The conference serves to bridge the gaps between different communities that share common interests in, and techniques for, tool development and its algorithmic foundations. The research areas covered by such communities include but are not limited to formal methods, software and hardware verification, static analysis, programming languages, software engineering, real-time systems, communications protocols, and biological systems. The TACAS forum provides a venue for such communities at which common problems, heuristics, algorithms, data structures and methodologies can be discussed and explored. In doing so, TACAS aims to support researchers in their quest to improve the utility, reliability, flexibility and efficiency of tools and algorithms for building systems.

Tool descriptions and case studies with a conceptual message, as well as theoretical papers with clear relevance for tool construction are all encouraged. The specific topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Specification and verification techniques for finite and infinite-state systems
  • Software and hardware verification
  • Theorem-proving and model-checking
  • System construction and transformation techniques
  • Static and run-time analysis
  • Abstraction techniques for modeling and validation
  • Compositional and refinement-based methodologies
  • Testing and test-case generation
  • Analytical techniques for safety, security, or dependability
  • Analytical techniques for real-time, hybrid, or stochastic systems
  • Integration of formal methods and static analysis in high-level hardware design or software environments
  • Tool environments and tool architectures
  • SAT and SMT solvers
  • Applications and case studies
