Workshop on Realistic Program Verification

Program verification is a very attractive research area that is slowly becoming more mainstream and applied to realistic programming languages and industrially sized problems. This workshop brings together researchers in the Netherlands with international researchers in this field.

The workshop will take place on 2 December at the Radboud University Nijmegen, the day after the PhD defense of Robbert Krebbers, whose thesis is on a formalization of the C standard in Coq.


Registration is required, but free of charge. Please visit this link to register.
