* formal description techniques;
* logics for formal specification and verification;
* deductive program verification;
* automatic theorem proving;
* model checking of programs and systems;
* static analysis of programs;
* formal approach to testing and validation;
* program analysis and verification tools.

Types of Submissions and Publications
Program Committee solicites
* regular research submissions in the form of extended abstracts (up to 8 pages, LNCS style) in English (additional details could be included in an appendix up to 4 pages for Program Committee), each regular research submission will be reviewed by 3 PC members;
* work in progress, position, poster and student papers (up to 4 pages), each of these submissions will be reviewed by a PC member.

Right now Easy Chair submission page is open for regular paprs.

All accepted papers will be published before the workshop (format and venue TBD) Selected revised and extended papers have been published after the workshop in Russian peer-review journal Modeling and Analysis of Information Systems ( We expect (as it was in the previous years of the PSSV) that English translations of some of these selected papers will appear next year in Automatic Control and Computer Sciences( (indexed by WoS and Scopus).
