VerifyThis Verification Competition 2017




Application deadline: March 6th, 2017
Competition: April 22-23, 2017


VerifyThis 2017 is a program verification competition taking place as part of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS 2017)<http://www.etaps.org/> on April 22-23, 2017 in Uppsala, Sweden. It is the 6th event in the VerifyThis competition series.

The competition will offer a number of challenges presented in natural language and pseudo code. Participants have to formalize the requirements, implement a solution, and formally verify the implementation for adherence to the specification.

There are no restrictions on the programming language and verification technology used. The correctness properties posed in problems will have the input-output behaviour of programs in focus. Solutions will be judged for correctness, completeness, and elegance.

Participation is open for anybody interested. Teams of up to two people are allowed. Registration for ETAPS workshops and physical presence on site is required.

We particularly encourage participation of:
    - student teams (this includes PhD students)
    - non-developer teams using a tool someone else developed
    - several teams using the same tool

The competition has funds for a limited number of travel grants. A grant covers the incurred travel and accommodation costs up to a certain limit. The expected limit is EUR 250 for those coming from Europe and EUR 500 for those coming from outside Europe.
