VECoS 2017
Call for Papers
11th International Conference on Verification and Evaluation
of Computer and Communication Systems
August 24-25, 2017 Montréal, Canada

The VECoS conference series is interested in the analysis of computer 
and communication systems in which functional and extra-functional 
properties are inter-related. VECoS encourages the cross-fertilization 
between the various formal verification and evaluation approaches, 
methods and techniques, and especially those developed for concurrent 
and distributed hardware/software systems.

Topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:
-Abstraction techniques
-Certification standards for real-time systems
-Compositional verification
-Correct-by-construction design
-Dependability assessment techniques
-Equivalence checking
-Parameterized verification
-Performance and robustness evaluation
-Probabilistic verification
-QoS evaluation, planning and deployment
-RAMS (Reliability Availability Maintainability Safety) assessment
-Rigorous system design
-Security protocols verification
-Simulation techniques of discrete-event and hybrid systems
-Supervisory control
-Verification & validation of IoT
-Verification & validation of safety-critical systems
-Worst-case execution time analysis

Application areas of VECoS include: adaptive systems, communication 
protocols, computer-supported collaborative work systems, cloud 
computing, cyber-physical systems, high performance computing, internet 
of things, logistics systems, manufactory of the future, mixed 
criticality systems, mobile and wireless networking, operations 
research, programming languages, real-time and embedded operating 
systems, service oriented systems, telecommunication systems, ubiquitous 
systems, web services, wireless sensor networks and workflow systems.
