Call for Papers

13th International Conference on Verification and Evaluation of Computer
and Communication Systems
October 7-9, 2019, Porto, Portugal
Co-located with 23rd International Symposium on Formal Methods
(FM 2019 – 3rd World Congress on Formal Methods)




* Ahmed Bouajjani, Université Paris Diderot (Paris VII),
   IRIF Laboratory, France
* Ali Mili, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark, USA


All the deadlines are AoE (Anywhere on Earth)
* Abstract deadline:     23 April 2019
* Papers deadline:        8 May   2019
* Paper notification:    11 June  2019
* Camera-ready deadline: 28 June  2019
* Conference:         7–9 October 2019


The VECoS conference series focuses on the analysis of computer
and communication systems, where functional and extra-functional
properties are inter-related. VECoS encourages the cross-fertil-
ization between the various formal verification and evaluation
approaches, methods and techniques, especially those developed
for concurrent and distributed hardware/software systems.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Abstraction techniques
* Compositional verification
* Correct-by-construction design
* Rigorous system design
* Equivalence checking
* Model-checking
* Parameterized verification
* Performance and robustness evaluation
* Probabilistic verification
* QoS evaluation, planning and deployment
* Dependability assessment techniques
* RAMS (Reliability-Availability-Maintainability-Safety) assessment
* Model-based Security assessment
* Security protocols verification
* Discrete-event and hybrid systems Modeling and Simulation
* Supervisory control
* Verification & validation of IoT
* Verification & validation of safety-critical systems
* Assessment for real-time systems
* Worst-case execution time analysis

Application areas of interest to VECoS include: adaptive systems,
communication protocols, computer-supported collaborative work
systems, cloud computing, cyber-physical systems, high-performance
computing, internet of things, logistics systems, manufacturing
of the future, mixed criticality systems, mobile and wireless
networking, operations research, programming languages, real-time
and embedded operating systems, service-oriented systems,
telecommunication systems, ubiquitous systems, web services,
wireless sensor networks and workflow systems.

VECoS 2019 will be held in October 7-9 in Porto, Portugal and will be
co-located with the International Symposium on Formal Methods, FM


Submitted papers must be no longer than 15 pages (including
bibliography), written in English, presenting original work
and not be submitted for publication elsewhere.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through EasyChair
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vecos2019), using the LNCS

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings. At least one
author of each accepted paper must attend the conference and present the
paper. The conference proceedings will be published in the
Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions
for a special issue of the Selected papers from the Conference will be
considered for publication in extended and revised form in a special
issue of an indexed international journal (ISSE: Innovations in Systems
and Software Engineering or IJCCBS: International Journal of Critical
Computer-Based Systems)
