ICLP 2001 workshop SAVE 2001

Specification, Analysis and Validation for Emerging Technologies

in Computational Logic

Dec 1, 2001 , Coral Beach Hotel and Resort, Paphos, Cyprus
Submission Deadline: Expired


The huge increase in interconnectivity we have witnessed in the last decade has boosted the development of systems which are often large-scale, distributed, time-critical,  and possibly acting in an unreliable or malicious environment. Furthermore, software and hardware components are often mobile, and have to interact with a potentially arbitrary number of other entities.

These systems require solid formal techniques for their verification and analysis. In this respect, computational logic plays an increasingly important role, both providing formal methods for proving system's correctness and tools - e.g. using techniques like constraint programming and theorem proving - for verifying their properties.

In addition, computational logic is gaining importance as tool for the specification of (part) of these systems. For instance, one can think at the specification, in a form of temporal logic, of a communication protocol. Such specification offers the advantage that one can reason about it using formal methods, and at the same time it is often easily executable by rewriting it into a logic-based programming language.

Extending and shifting slightly from the scope of the predecessors (on verification and logic languages) held in the context of past editions of ICLP, the aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in the use of computational logicas a tool for the specification, analysis and validation of systems, with particular emphasis on (but not restricted to) emerging technologies like World Wide Web and E-Commerce,  (protocols for) Smart Cards and Mobile Telephony,  Wireless Technology, Hybrid Systems, Real-Time and Distributed systems etc.
