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 
technology used.
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.
