VECoS 2017
Call for Papers
11th International Conference on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems
August 24-25, 2017 Montréal, Canada

The VECoS conference series is interested in the analysis of computer and communication systems in which functional and extra-functional properties are inter-related. VECoS encourages 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.

Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:
o Abstraction techniques
o Certification standards for real-time systems
o Compositional verification
o Correct-by-construction design
o Dependability assessment techniques
o Equivalence checking
o Model-checking
o Parameterized verification
o Performance and robustness evaluation
o Probabilistic verification
o QoS evaluation, planning and deployment
o RAMS (Reliability Availability Maintainability Safety) assessment
o Rigorous system design
o Security protocols verification
o Simulation techniques of discrete-event and hybrid systems
o Supervisory control
o Verification & validation of IoT
o Verification & validation of safety-critical systems
o Worst-case execution time analysis

Application areas of VECoS include: adaptive systems, communication protocols, computer-supported collaborative work systems, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, high performance computing, internet of things, logistics systems, manufactory of the future, mixed criticality systems, mobile and wireless networking, operations research, programming languages, real-time and embedded operating systems, service oriented systems, telecommunication systems, ubiquitous systems, web services, wireless sensor networks and workflow systems.
