|Motivations and Goals
The huge increase in interconnectivity we have witnessed in the last decade has boosted the development of systems which are often large-scale, distributed, time-critical, and possibly acting in an unreliable or malicious environment. Furthermore, software and hardware components are often mobile, and have to interact with a potentially arbitrary number of other entities.
These systems require solid formal techniques for their verification and analysis. In this respect, computational logic plays an increasingly important role, both providing formal methods for proving system's correctness and tools - e.g. using techniques like constraint programming and theorem proving - for verifying their properties.
In addition, computational logic is gaining importance as tool for the specification of these systems. For instance, one can think at the specification, in a form of temporal logic, of a communication protocol. Such specification offers the advantage that one can reason about it using formal methods, and at the same time it is often easily executable by rewriting it into a logic-based programming language.
The first edition of SAVE
2001 took place as a one-day satellite event of ICLP/CP 2001 in Paphos,
The aim of this new edition is to bring together researchers interested in the use of computational logic as a tool for the specification, analysis and validation of systems, with particular emphasis on (but not restricted to) emerging technologies like World Wide Web and e-commerce, (protocols for) smart cards and mobile telephony, wireless technology, control and real-time systems, open and distributed systems.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:
The proceedings of the workshop will be published a technical report.
