Conference Overview
===================
  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.

Local Information
=================
  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.

  includes 2 invited keynotes, 4 invited tutorials, 24 regular papers,
  4 short papers, and 2 panels.
