21 - 26 May 2017, 7th Summer School on Formal Techniques, Atherton CA, U.S.A.
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 seventh 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 developing 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".
