13th International Conference on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems (VECoS 2019)

Oct 7-9, 2019 | Porto, Portugal |

The aim of the VECoS conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners, in the areas of verification, control, performance, quality of service, dependability evaluation, in order to discuss the state-of-the-art and the challenges in modern computer and communication systems in which functional and extra-functional properties are strongly interrelated. Thus, the main motivation for VECoS is to encourage the cross-fertilization between the various formal verification and evaluation approaches, methods and techniques, and especially those developed for concurrent and distributed hardware/software systems. Beyond its technical and scientific goals, another main purpose of VECoS is to promote collaboration between participants in research and education in the area of computer science and engineering. We welcome contributions describing original research, practical experience reports and tool descriptions/demonstrations in the areas of verification, control, performance, quality of service and dependability evaluation.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Abstraction techniques
  • Certification standards for real-time systems
  • Compositional verification
  • Correct-by-construction design
  • Dependability assessment techniques
  • Equivalence checking
  • Model-checking
  • Parameterized verification
  • Performance and robustness evaluation
  • Probabilistic verification
  • QoS evaluation, planning and deployment
  • RAMS (Reliability Availability Maintainability Safety) assessment
  • Rigorous system design
  • Security protocols verification
  • Simulation techniques of discrete-event and hybrid systems
  • Supervisory control
  • Verification & validation of IoT
  • Verification & validation of safety-critical systems
  • Worst-case execution time analysis
