verification related domains. CAV 2011 Workshops will be held
before the main conference on July 14 and 15.

Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the Workshop chair along with
the program chairs and members of the steering committee. Proposals
must consist of the following two parts:

-- Part I: Technical Information --

A short (about 1 page) scientific justification of the proposed
topic, its significance and relevance to CAV, and the particular
benefits of the workshop to the verification community, as well as a
list of previous or related workshops (if relevant).

Important Dates:

Proposals are due by Oct 15th, 2010 by email to the Workshop

The workshop proposals will be reviewed and evaluated on the following

* Potential to advance state of the art in verification technologies,
especially ability to break new ground.
* Relevance to CAV.
* Overlap of topics with other proposed workshops.
* Past-successes of the workshop and association with previous CAV
* Organizers' ability and experience to lead a successful workshop.

All accepted workshops will be asked to provide a webpage, call for
papers, and list of invited speakers. The workshop participants will
be required to register for the workshop through the CAV main
registration page.

The registration rates for workshops will be set by CAV organizers in
consultation with the workshop organizers, following rate structures
similar to (but not the same as) those followed in the past. The
workshop organizers are strongly encouraged to seek external funding
and sponsorships.
