VECoS 2016 : International Workshop on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems
Call For Papers
10th International Workshop on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems
Tunis, Tunisia, October 6-7, 2016
Paper Submission Deadline: April 18, 2016
Notification of paper acceptance: June 15, 2016
Submission of camera-ready papers due: July 7, 2016
***Scope and Aims
VECoS 2016 will be held the 6th-7th October 2016 at the Tunisia Polytechnic School (EPT) that is the main organizer together with the support of Digital Research Center (DRC) of Sfax, MeFoSyLoMa Group and Formal Methods Europe.
The International Workshop on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems (VECoS) was created by an Euro-Med network of researchers in computer science. Its first edition VECoS 2007 took place in Algiers, VECoS 2008 in Leeds, VECoS 2009 in Rabat, VECoS 2010 in Paris, VECoS 2011 in Tunis, VECoS 2012 in Paris, VECoS 2013 in Florence, VECoS 2014 in Bejaia, VECoS 2015 in Bucharest.
The aim of the VECoS workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners, in the areas of verification, control, performance, quality of service, dependability evaluation and assessment, in order to discuss the state-of-the-art and the challenges in modern computer and communication systems in which functional and non-functional properties are strongly interrelated. Thus, the main motivation for VECoS is to encourage the cross-fertilization between the various formal verification and evaluation approaches, methods and techniques, and especially those developed for concurrent and distributed hardware/software systems.
Beyond its technical and scientific goals, another main purpose of VECoS is to promote collaboration between participants in research and education in the area of computer science and engineering. We welcome contributions describing original research, practical experience reports and tool descriptions/demonstrations in the areas of verification, control, performance, quality of service and dependability evaluation.
