         Webinar & Call for Model-Checking Community Feedback

"Developing an Open-Source, State-of-the-Art Symbolic Model-Checking
          Framework for the Model-Checking Research Community"


Research Goal:
This is an NSF (U.S. National Science Foundation)-funded effort to develop 
an open-source, state-of-the-art symbolic model-checking framework for the 
international model-checking research community. Our goal is to fill the 
current gap in model checking research platforms: building a 
freely-available, open-source, scalable model checking infrastructure that 
accepts expressive models and efficiently interfaces with the 
currently-maintained state-of-the-art back-end algorithms to provide an 
extensible research and verification tool. We will create a community 
resource with a well-documented intermediate representation to enable 
extensibility, and a web portal, facilitating new modeling languages and 
back-end algorithmic advances. To add new modeling languages or 
algorithms, researchers need only to develop a translator to/from the new 
intermediate language, and will then be able to integrate each advance 
with the full state-of-the-art in model checking.

Project Status:
We have developed a candidate intermediate representation for symbolic 
model checking and revised it via feedback from a Technical Advisory 
Board. We are now ready for wider community feedback to fuel our next 
round of revisions and developments.

Visit our project website for more details, presentation slides, and more 
opportunities to interact, including providing comments, joining our 
mailing list, registering for future webinars, and suggesting names for 
the new framework.


Our first workshop will be held online via zoom:
15 February 2022
1:00pm-3:00pm US-CST (GMT-6)
Registration is at: https://modelchecker.temporallogic.org

15 minutes: Project overview and introduction
45 minutes: Candidate intermediate representation details
60 minutes: Moderated community feedback and questions

*** Additional webinars will be held to accommodate other time-zones; 
please register for a future workshop on the website and provide your 
timezone when asked.

Research Leads:
