******************************************************************

The Third International Conference on Verified Software: Theories,
Tools, and Experiments follows a successful inaugural working
conference at Zurich (2005) and a successful conference in Toronto
(2008). This conference is part of the Verified Software Initiative
(VSI), a fifteen-year, cooperative, international project directed
at the scientific challenges of large-scale software verification.
VSI also includes UKCRC's Grand Challenge 6, i.e. Dependable Systems
Evolution. VSTTE is open to anyone who is interested in participating
actively in the VSI effort.

SCOPE
The goal of this conference is to advance the state of the art in
the science and technology of software verification through the
interaction of theory development, tool evolution, and experimental
validation.  Authors are encouraged to submit work in progress,
particularly if the work involves collaboration, theory unification,
and tool integration.  Topics of interest include

requirements modeling
specification languages
specification/verification case-studies
formal calculi
programming languages
language semantics
software design methods
software testing
automatic code generation
refinement methodologies
type systems
computer security
verification tools (static analysis, dynamic analysis, model
                   checking, theorem proving, satisfiability)
tool integration
benchmarks
challenge problems
integrated verification environments

We also encourage researchers to submit challenges in theory,
formalization, systems verification, code verification, and
applications. Contributions relating to existing challenges
will also be welcomed, i.e.

* Tokeneer (http://www.adacore.com/home/products/sparkpro/tokeneer)
* POSIX file system (http://tinyurl.com/qyzqk9)
* medical devices (http://tinyurl.com/pnztqb)

VENUE
VSTTE 2010 is being hosted by Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.
The conference dates coincide with the 2010 Edinburgh International
Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe -- collectively the
largest annual  arts festival on the planet! The technical programme
will take place in the Edinburgh Conference Centre (Riccarton campus),
where accommodation will be available at very competitive rates for
festival time. Social events will be arranged within the city centre,
making VSTTE an unique cultural and scholarly event for 2010!

INVITED SPEAKERS
* Tom Ball (Microsoft Research, Redmond)
* Gerwin Klein (National ICT Australia)
* Matthew Parkinson (University of Cambridge)

SUBMISSIONS
Submitted research papers and system descriptions must be original and
not submitted for publication elsewhere.  Research paper submissions are
limited to 15 proceedings pages in LNCS format and must include a
cogent and self-contained description of the ideas, methods and results,
together with a comparison to existing work. System descriptions
are also limited to 15 proceedings pages in LNCS format. Submissions
of theoretical, practical, and experimental contributions
are equally encouraged, including those that focus on specific problems
or problem domains. Papers can be submitted at

       https://www.easychair.org/login.cgi?conf=vstte10.

Submissions that arrive late, are not in the proper format, or are too
long will not be considered.  The proceedings of VSTTE 2010 will be
published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.  Authors of accepted
papers will be requested to sign a form transferring copyright of their
contribution to Springer-Verlag.  The use of LaTeX and the Springer
llncs class files, obtainable from http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

,
is strongly encouraged.

WORKSHOPS
In addition to the main conference, VSTTE will host two workshops on
August 19th -- a workshop on Theory chaired by David Naumann and
Hongseok Yang and a workshop on Tools & Experiments chaired by Tiziana
Margaria and Rajeev Joshi. The workshops will provide a forum to
present new, possibly unfinished work and will also give the
opportunity to propose research challenges, which will help form a
research agenda for the Verified Software Initiative.
