                   3rd International Workshop on

               Systems Software Verification (SSV 08)
            Real Software, Real Problems, Real Solutions

                Feb 25/26 2008, Sydney, Australia

                    http://nicta.com.au/ssv08/

Industrial-strength software analysis and verification has advanced in
recent years through the introduction of model checking, automated and
interactive theorem proving, and static analysis techniques as well as
correctness by design, correctness by contract, and model-driven
development. However, many techniques are working under restrictive
assumptions which are invalidated by complex (embedded) system
software such as operating system kernels, low-level device drivers or
microcontroller code.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
developers from both academia and industry, who are facing real
software and real problems to find real, applicable solutions. By
"real" we mean problems such as time-to-market or reliability that the
industry is facing and is trying to fix in software that is deployed
in the market place. A real solution is one that is applicable to the
problem in industry and not one that only applies to an abstract,
academic toy version of it. This forum will discuss software
analysis/development techniques and tools; it will also serve as a
platform to discuss open problems and future challenges in dealing
with existing and upcoming system code.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

     * model checking
     * automated and interactive theorem proving
     * static analysis
     * automated testing
     * model-driven development
     * embedded systems development
     * programming languages
     * verifying compilers
     * software certification
     * software tools
     * experience reports

Interested speakers should submit their paper (max 15 pages, ENTCS
style) to http://www.easychair.org/SSV08/ by Oct 19 2007, 23:59h
Samoan time. All papers will be subject to peer review under normal
conference standards. Experience reports and papers on work in
progress are welcome as long as there is a clear contribution.
Accepted submissions are planned to be published at ENTCS. Submissions
must be in pdf format and follow the ENTCS style instructions at
http://www.entcs.org/prelim.html.
