22-27 May 2016, 6th Summer School on Formal Techniques (SSFT16), Atherton CA, U.S.A.

Date: 22-27 May 2016
Location: Atherton CA, U.S.A.
Deadline: 30 April 2016

Techniques based on formal logic, such as model checking, satisfiability, static analysis, and automated theorem proving, are finding a broad range of applications in modeling, analysis, verification, and synthesis. This school, the sixth in the series, will focus on the principles and practice of formal techniques, with a strong emphasis on the hands-on use and development of this technology. It primarily targets graduate students and young researchers who are interested in studying and using formal techniques in their research. A prior background in formal methods is helpful but not required. Participants at the school will have a seriously fun time experimenting with the tools and techniques presented in the lectures during laboratory sessions.

The main lectures in the summer school will be preceded by a background course on logic taught by Natarajan Shankar (SRI)and Stephane Graham-Lengrand (Ecole Polytechnique) on "Speaking Logic".

Applicants are urged to submit their applications before April 30, 2016, since there are only a limited number of spaces available. Non-US applicants requiring US visas are requested to apply early. For more information, see http://fm.csl.sri.com/SSFT16
