Midwest Verification Day 2010 (MVD'10) is the second workshop for the Midwest region on hardware and software verification, aiming to repeat the success of MVD'09.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, deductive verification, model checking, static analysis, abstract interpretation, runtime verification, and model-based testing.
The workshop, loosely modeled after similar, successful events like Midwest Theory Day and MidGraph, has the following purposes:
- give graduate and undergraduate students a chance to present their research ideas to other students and faculty in an informal and relaxed setting;
- share suggestions and ideas on everyone's work, early drafts of papers, and presentations;
- improve acceptance chances at high-quality publication venues;
- build and foster a Midwestern verification and formal methods community.
The workshop has no program committee and no proceedings. Anyone willing to give talk is encouraged to do so (see the Submissions section for more details).
Participation is open to anybody and there are no registration fees. However, prospective participants are strongly encouraged to register in advance. Also, a number of travel and accommodation grants are available, mostly to student participants, thanks to a grant by the National Science Foundation. See the Registration section for more details on both.
On September 18, immediately following MVD'10, the Cedar Rapids IEEE Section is hosting a co-located Industry Formal Methods Workshop, on an introductory overview of industrial formal methods, with talks by researchers and practitioners currently or previously affiliated with Rockwell Collins. MVD'10 participants are welcome to stay for this additional event.
