24th International Conference on Computer Aided Verification (CAV
2012) July 7-13, 2012 Berkeley, California, USA
Program Chairs: Madhusudan Parathasarathy and Sanjit A. Seshia
Aims and Scope
The conference on Computer Aided Verification (CAV), 2012, is the 24th
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 spurring advances in
hardware and software verification while expanding to new domains such
as biological systems and computer security. 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 Formal Methods in System Design and the
Journal of the ACM.
Topics of interest include:
- Algorithms and tools for verifying models and implementations
- Hardware verification techniques
- Hybrid systems and embedded systems verification
- Deductive, compositional, and abstraction techniques for verification
- Program analysis and software verification
- Testing and runtime analysis based on verification technology
- Verification methods for parallel and concurrent hardware/software systems
- Applications and case studies in verification
- Verification in industrial practice
- Algorithms and tools for system synthesis
- Verification techniques for security
- Formal models and methods for biological systems
** NEW in 2012 **
CAV will have *special tracks* in the following four areas:
1. Hardware Verification (track chair: Andreas Kuehlmann)
2. Computer Security  (track chair: Somesh Jha)
3. Embedded Systems (track chair: Stavros Tripakis)
4. SAT and SMT (track chair: Daniel Kroening)
Submissions in these four topics are especially encouraged.
Papers in these areas will be subject to the same rigorous review
process as other papers.
Accepted special track papers will be organized into special sessions
that are highlighted in the program.
The conference will include the following events:
* Pre-conference workshops on July 7-8.
* The main conference will take place July 9th-13th:
-- Invited tutorials on July 9th.
-- Technical sessions on July 10-13.
Please see the conference website for further details.
Paper Submission
There are two categories of submissions:
A. Regular Papers: Submissions, not exceeding sixteen (16) 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 strengths 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.  An appendix that will not be part of the published
presentation may be added for use in the program committee selection
process.  A demonstration, in a separate demonstration session, 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.
Note that the page limit for submissions has been increased to 16
pages. For regular papers, an appendix can be joined to the
submissions providing additional material such as details on proofs or
experiments. The appendix is not guaranteed to be read or taken into
account by the reviewers and it should not contain information
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 must be submitted in PDF format. Submission is done with
EasyChair. Information about the submission procedure will be

CAV Award
The annual CAV Award has been 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).
Call for Nominations for the CAV Award
Anyone can submit a nomination. The Award Committee can originate a
nomination. Anyone, with the exception of members of the Award
Committee, is eligible to receive the Award. A nomination must state
clearly the contribution(s), explain why the contribution is
fundamental or the series of contributions is outstanding, and be
accompanied by supporting letters and other evidence of worthiness.
Nominations should include a proposed citation (up to 25 words), a
succinct (100-250 words) description of the contribution(s), and a
detailed statement to justify the nomination. The cited
contribution(s) must have been made not more recently than five years
ago and not over twenty years ago. In addition, the contribution(s)
should not yet have received recognition via a major award, such as
the ACM Turing or Kanellakis Awards. The nominee may have received
such an award for other contributions.
The 2012 CAV Award Committee consists of
Thomas A. Henzinger (Chair)
