4th International Workshop on

Systems Software Verification (SSV'09)
Real Software, Real Problems, Real Solutions


June 22-24 2009, Aachen, Germany

Pictures from the event are now available online



Industrial-strength software analysis and verification has advanced in recent years through the introduction of model checking, automated and interactive theorem proving, and static analysis techniques as well as correctness by design, correctness by contract, and model-driven development. However, many techniques are working under restrictive assumptions which are invalidated by complex (embedded) system software such as operating system kernels, low-level device drivers or microcontroller code.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and developers from both academia and industry, who are facing real software and real problems to find real, applicable solutions. By “real” we mean problems such as time-to-market or reliability that the industry is facing and is trying to fix in software that is deployed in the market place. A real solution is one that is applicable to the problem in industry and not one that only applies to an abstract, academic toy version of it. This forum will discuss software analysis/development techniques and tools; it will also serve as a platform to discuss open problems and future challenges in dealing with existing and upcoming systems level code.

Topics include (but are not limited to):

  • model checking
  • automated and interactive theorem proving
  • static analysis
  • automated testing
  • model-driven development
  • embedded systems development
  • programming languages
  • verifying compilers
  • software certification
  • software tools
  • experience reports


Interested speakers should submit their paper (max 15 pages, ENTCS style) to http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ssv09 by Feb 15 2009, 23:59h Samoan time. All papers will be subject to peer review under normal conference standards. Experience reports and papers on work in progress are welcome as long as there is a clear contribution. Accepted submissions are planned to be published in ENTCS. Submissions must be in pdf format and follow the ENTCS style instructions at http://www.entcs.org/prelim.html.
