VerifyThis 2018 is a program verification competition taking place as part
of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS
2018) on April 14-15, 2018 in Thessaloniki, Greece.
It is the 7th event in the VerifyThis competition series.

The competition will offer a number of challenges presented in natural
language and pseudo code.
Participants have to formalize the requirements, implement a solution, and
formally verify the implementation for adherence to the specification.

There are no restrictions on the programming language and verification

The correctness properties posed in problems will have the input-output
behaviour of programs in focus. Solutions will be judged for correctness,
completeness, and elegance.
