This will be the third in the Automated Formal Methods (AFM) workshop series, following on from AFM06 and AFM07. AFM functions both as a user's meeting for the SRI tools PVS, SAL (with HybridSAL), and Yices, and as a general workshop for those interested in state of the art automation for formal methods.
VenueAFM08 will be held in Room 006 of the Friend Center on the Princeton Campus. Directions and parking permit are here.
AFM is particularly interested in the use of highly automated tools for formal methods and the tight or loose integration of different methods into tool chains that strive to provide end-to-end automation for all aspects of software development. Users of all levels of expertise are invited to report on their experiences.
We hope that AFM will provide a rewarding forum for presentation of interesting work and new ideas in the application and integration of highly automated formal methods, with stimulating and provocative discussion of successes, failures, and new directions.
The workshop will focus on submitted contributions, including a session for short presentations (five minutes, five slides), but may include invited speakers or a tutorial on the recent developments in SRI's or similar tools if time permits.
