****          Second Call for Workshops Proposals           ****
***********               ICGT/SPIN 2010           *************

We are inviting people to submit proposals for satellite workshops for
the joint event of the Fifth International Conference on Graph
Transformation (ICGT 2010) and the 17th International SPIN Workshop on
Model Checking Software (SPIN 2010). Both events will take place at
the University of Twente (Enschede, The Netherlands), between September
27th and October 2nd, 2010.  Further information is available at the
ICGT/SPIN website: <http://www.utwente.nl/icgt-spin/>.

We solicit proposals for high-quality workshops related to the field of
graph transformations and software verification and validation, from
academic research to industrial applications.

The purpose of the workshops is to enhance and diversify the main
events, to provide an informal setting for workshop participants to
discuss technical issues, exchange research ideas, and to discuss and
demonstrate applications. The workshops may be driven by theoretical
foundations or by applications of graph transformation and software
verification and validation to a variety of areas.
