ICLP 2001 workshop SAVE 2001
Specification, Analysis and Validation for Emerging Technologies
in Computational Logic
Dec 1, 2001 , Coral Beach Hotel and Resort, Paphos, Cyprus
Submission Deadline: August 25, 2001
The huge increase in interconnectivity we have witnessed in the last decade has boosted the development of
systems which are often large-scale, distributed, time-critical, and possibly acting in an unreliable or malicious
environment. Furthermore, software and hardware components are often mobile, and have to interact with a
potentially arbitrary number of other entities.
These systems require solid formal techniques for their verification and analysis. In this respect, computational
logic plays an increasingly important role, both providing formal methods for proving system's correctness and
tools - e.g. using techniques like constraint programming and theorem proving - for verifying their properties.
In addition, computational logic is gaining importance as tool for the specification of (part) of these systems. For
instance, one can think at the specification, in a form of temporal logic, of a communication protocol. Such
specification offers the advantage that one can reason about it using formal methods, and at the same time it is
often easily executable by rewriting it into a logic-based programming language.
Extending and shifting slightly from the scope of the predecessors (on verification and logic languages) held in
the context of past editions of ICLP, the aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested in the
use of computational logicas a tool for the specification, analysis and validation of systems, with particular
emphasis on (but not restricted to) emerging technologies like World Wide Web and E-Commerce, (protocols
for) Smart Cards and Mobile Telephony, Wireless Technology, Hybrid Systems, Real-Time and Distributed
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Specification languages and rapid prototyping:
Logic programming and its extensions
First-order, constructive, modal and temporal logic
Simulation and testing
The preferred issues include, but are not limited to:
Mobility: specification and verification of mobile code.
Security: access rights, information flow, and security protocols.
Interaction, coordination, negotiation, communication and exchange on the Web.
Open and infinite-state systems.
Deadline for submissions: August 25, 2001.
Notification of acceptance/rejection: September 15, 2001.
Final papers due: October 5, 2001.
Authors should submit papers of at most 15 pages, in postscript format,
formatted for A4 paper, to Giorgio Delzanno (firstname.lastname@example.org) by
the 25th of August 2001. The proceedings will be published in electronic
format. A printed version will be distributed to all
participants of the workshop.
On the basis of the number and quality of the submissions, we could also consider the
possibility of inviting submissions for a special issue of an international journal
dedicated to the workshop.
