3rd International Workshop on

Systems Software Verification (SSV 08)

Real Software, Real Problems, Real Solutions

Feb 25-27 2008, Sydney, Australia

Proceedings have now appeared in ENTCS vol 217

SSV'09 will be held in Aachen, Germany


 Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House

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

The accepted submissions have now appeared in ENTCS vol. 217.
