     Winter School on Verification of Object-Oriented Programs

              Viinistu, Estonia, 25-29 January 2009



The action IC0701 of COST (2008-2012) is a European network of
researchers working on extending the reach and power of methods and
tools for verification of object-oriented software.

The school at Viinistu is the first of the two training schools the
network will organize as part of its activities.

The school is targeted at early-stage researchers. Individuals
associated to the network are eligible for support from the project
funds, but the school is open to anyone.  


The school's scientific programme will consist of five short courses:

    * Einar Broch Johnsen, University of Oslo:
      An abstract behavioral model of distributed concurrent objects

    * Christian Haack, Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen:
      Specification and verification of heap access policies

    * Reiner Hähnle, Chalmers University of Technology 
        and Gothenburg University:
      Formal analysis of Java programs with KeY

    * Claude Marché, INRIA Saclay - Île-de-France:
      Deductive verification of pointer programs: 
        the Why/Krakatoa approach

    * Arnd Poetzsch-Heffter, Universität Kaiserslautern:
      Modular verification of object-oriented programs


Viinistu is a 600-year old fishermen's village some 80 kms from
