Final proceedings published as ENTCS Volume 128, Issue 3
The growing importance of automated formal verification in industry is driving a growing interest in those aspects which have a direct impact on its applicability to real world problems. One of the main technical challenges is in devising tools that allow to handle large state spaces. Over the last years numerous approaches have been developed. Recently, an increasing interest is in parallelizing and distributing of verification techniques.
The aim of the PDMC workshop series is to cover all aspects of parallel and distributed methods and techniques for formal verification. Theoretical results, algorithms and case studies are equally welcome. After two successful meetings in 2002 and 2003 with primary focus on parallelization of model checking, we have decided to extend the scope of the workshop to cover all approaches where parallel and distributed techniques can make the automated verification more effective and/or extend its applicability. This extension is also reflected in the new name of the workshop.
The PDMC workshop aims to provide a working forum for presenting, sharing, and discussing recent achievements in the field of parallel and distributed verification. The workshop will consist of invited talks and a selection from submitted papers.
Papers describing recent work on all aspects of parallel and distributed
verification are solicited as contributions to PDMC. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
PROCEEDINGS: The preliminary workshop proceedings will be available as a Research Report of the Imperial College London. The final proceedings appear as a volume of Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science. After the workshop, selected authors will be invited to submit full versions of their papers (regular papers or presentation results not submitted for journal publication) to a special section of a journal (under negotiation).
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: There are two categories of submissions: regular papers and presentations.
Submissions should be made electronically using PDMC'04 Submission Page.
