OVERLAY 2022 : 4th Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and fOrmal VERification, Logic, Automata, and sYnthesis
Call For Papers
The increasing adoption of Artificial Intelligence techniques in safety-critical systems, employed in real world scenarios, requires the design of reliable, robust, and verifiable methodologies. Artificial Intelligence systems employed in such applications need to provide formal guarantees about their safety, increasing the need for a close interaction between the Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods scientific communities. To witness this increasing need, tools and methodologies integrating Formal Methods and Artificial Intelligence solutions are getting more and more attention.
The workshop is the main official initiative supported by the OVERLAY group. The event aims at establishing a stable, long-term scientific forum on relevant topics connected to the relationships between Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods, by providing a stimulating environment where researchers can discussabout opportunities and challenges at the border of the two areas.
Important goals of the workshop are (i) to encourage the ongoing interaction between the formal methods and artificial intelligence communities, (ii) to identify innovative tools and methodologies, and (iii) to elicit a discussion on open issues and new challenges.
This year edition will be held between 28th November and 4th December 2022 (the precise day(s) will be announced later), as a hybrid workshop co-located with AIxIA 2022, which is scheduled to be held in Udine, Italy (unless it will be an online event, depending on the pandemic emergency situation).
We accept extended abstracts (4 pages + references) focusing on the interaction between Artificial Intelligence and Formal Methods.
Contributed papers can present recent results at the border of the two fields, new research directions, challenges and perspectives. Presentation of results recently published in other scientific journals or conferences is also welcome.
We plan on including all papers in the Proceedings of the event, published at CEUR Workshop Proceedings. CEUR WS proceedings are archival proceedings indexed by DBLP and Scopus.
Submitted papers should not exceed four (4) pages plus references. Authors are asked to use CEUR's LaTeX style, available at http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-XXX/CEURART.zip.
Submissions must be in PDF format and will be handled via the EasyChair Conference system at the following address:
