The Second Working Conference on Verified Software: Theories,
Tools, and Experiments follows a successful inaugural working conference
at Zurich, Switzerland in 2005. This conference formally inaugurates the
Verified Software Initiative (VSI), a fifteen-year, cooperative,
international project directed at the scientific challenges of large-scale
software verification. The Working Conference is open to anyone who is
interested in participating actively in the VSI effort.

There will be plenary sessions Monday (6 Oct) through Thursday (9 Oct).
Thursday is also devoted to three workshops: one on Theories, one on
Tools, and one on Experiments. There will be a conference dinner on
Wednesday evening on a boat that tours the Toronto harbour and Scarborough
Bluffs and the shore of Lake Ontario.

Registration can be made online at http://www.regonline.ca/VSTTE08
Regular registration is CAN $550; student registration is CAN $275.

Local information can be found at http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/vstte08/

The Conference Venue is the Novotel Toronto Centre; all sessions for the
conference will take place at this hotel. Please make your own
reservation, and quote "Verified Software Conference" to obtain the
conference rate of $169 (plus taxes) per night.
