  The aim of Automated Verification of Critical Systems (AVoCS) 2015 
  is to contribute to the interaction and exchange of ideas among members 
  of the international research community on tools and techniques for the 
  verification of critical systems. 

  The subject is to be interpreted broadly and inclusively. It covers 
  all aspects of automated verification, including model checking, 
  theorem proving, SAT/SMT constraint solving, abstract interpretation, 
  and refinement pertaining to various types of critical systems which 
  need to meet stringent dependability requirements (safety-critical, 
  business-critical, performance-critical, etc.). Contributions that 
  describe different techniques, or industrial case studies are encouraged. 

  The technical programme will consist of invited and contributed talks 
  and also allow for short presentations of research ideas. The workshop 
  will be relatively informal, with an emphasis on discussion where special 
  discussion sessions will be organised around the research ideas presentations. 
  Topics include (but are not limited to):
    - Model Checking
    - Automatic and Interactive Theorem Proving
    - SAT, SMT or Constraint Solving for Verification
    - Abstract Interpretation
    - Specification and Refinement
    - Requirements Capture and Analysis
    - Verification of Software and Hardware
    - Specification and Verification of Fault Tolerance and Resilience
    - Probabilistic and Real-Time Systems
    - Dependable Systems
    - Verified System Development
    - Industrial Applications

  AI4FM 2015: 1 September 2015 -- www.ai4fm.org/ai4fm-2015/

  The event will be held in the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences 
  (ICMS) in the centre of the historic old town of Edinburgh - an UNESCO world
  heritage site. 

  Thanks to sponsorships from FME and SICSA we can offer financial support for a 
  limited number of students registering for AVoCS in the form of a registration 
  fee waiver (full or partial). As this is limited, we ask the students that 
  would like to take the advantage of this support to submit a short application. 
  The details on how to apply will be available in due course from the AVoCS 

   Submissions of full papers to the workshop must not have been published 
   or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All submissions 
   will be peer-reviewed and judged on the basis of originality, contribution 
   to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the 
   workshop. Submissions are handled via Easychair: 


   The papers must be written in English and not exceed 15 pages and should 
   use the dedicated AVoCS 2015 EASST template available rom the the 
   following link (for LaTeX and Word):


   AVoCS also encourages the submissions of research ideas in order to stimulate 
   discussions at the workshop. Reports on ongoing work or surveys on work 
   published elsewhere are welcome. The Programme Committee will select 
   research ideas on the basis of submitted abstracts according to significance 
   and general interest. Research ideas must be written in English and not exceed 
   2 pages using the EASST template. The presentation of these ideas will be organised 
   around discussions, where the presenter should also prepare a set of question in 
   which the audience will discuss.

  At the workshop, pre-proceedings will be available in the form of a Heriot-Watt 
  University Technical Report; this report will also include the research ideas.
  After the workshop, the authors of accepted full papers will have about one 
  month in order to revise their papers for publication in the workshop post-
  proceedings which will appear in the Electronic Communications of the EASST 
  Open Access Journal. Research ideas will not be part of the proceedings in the 
  Open Access Journal.

  Authors of a selection of the best papers presented at the workshop will be 
  invited to submit extended versions of their work for publication in a 
  special issue of Elsevier's journal Science of Computer Programming.

BigDat 2015

Tarragona, Spain

January 26-30, 2015

Organized by
Rovira i Virgili University



--- Early registration deadline: January 23, 2015 ---



BigDat 2015 is a research training event for graduates and postgraduates in
the first steps of their academic career. It aims at updating them about the
most recent developments in the fast developing area of big data, which
covers a large spectrum of current exciting research, development and
innovation with an extraordinary potential for a huge impact on scientific
discoveries, medicine, engineering, business models, and society itself.
Renowned academics and industry pioneers will lecture and share their views
with the audience.

All big data subareas will be displayed, namely: foundations,
infrastructure, management, search and mining, security and privacy, and
applications. Main challenges of analytics, management and storage of big
data will be identified through 4 keynote lectures, 22 six-hour courses, and
1 round table, which will tackle the most lively and promising topics. The
organizers believe outstanding speakers will attract the brightest and most
motivated students. Interaction will be a main component of the event.


Graduate and postgraduates from around the world. There are no formal
pre-requisites in terms of academic degrees. However, since there will be
differences in the course levels, specific knowledge background may be
required for some of them.

BigDat 2015 is also appropriate for more senior people who want to keep
themselves updated on recent developments and future trends. They will
surely find it fruitful to listen and discuss with major researchers,
industry leaders and innovators.


In addition to keynotes, 3 courses will run in parallel during the whole
event. Participants will be able to freely choose the courses they will be
willing to attend as well as to move from one to another.


BigDat 2015 will take place in Tarragona, located 90 kms. to the south of
Barcelona. The venue will be:
