CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
International Conference on Formal Methods in Computer-Aided Design
November 17-20, 2008
Embassy Suites Portland--Downtown
Early Registration Deadline: October 16, 2008
Hotel Registration Deadline: October 18, 2008
FMCAD 2008 is the eighth in a series of conferences on the theory
and application of formal methods in hardware and system design and
verification. In 2005, the bi-annual FMCAD and sister conference
CHARME decided to merge to form an annual conference with a unified
community. The resulting unified FMCAD provides a leading
international forum to researchers and practitioners in academia and
industry for presenting and discussing groundbreaking methods,
technologies, theoretical results, and tools for formally reasoning
about computing systems, as well as open challenges therein.
The Conference will be held at the Embassy Suites (Downtown) in
Portland, Oregon. We have negotiated a special rate with the hotel
for conference attendees. Please book early to secure the reduced
rate. For details, please see the conference web page. A dinner
cruise on the Willamette River is planned.
The technical program is available at the conference web page. It
includes 2 invited keynotes, 4 invited tutorials, 24 regular papers,
4 short papers, and 2 panels.
o Ken McMillan (Cadence): Interpolation -- Theory and Applications
o Carl Seger (Intel): Formal Methods and Physical Design: Match Made
in Heaven or Fools' Paradise?
o Kevin Jones (Rambus): Analog and Mixed Signal Verification: The
State of the Art and some Open Problems
o Moshe Levinger (IBM): Building a Bridge: From Pre-Silicon
Verification to Post-Silicon Validation
