Specification and Validation
of Reactive Systems

Workshop organized by
the Vires LTR-project.

June 14th-15th

At Autrans (Escandille)

VIRES (Verifying Industrial REactive Systems) is an LTR-ESPRIT project carried out by an international consortium comprising of the Universities of Grenoble (Verimag), Liege and Kiel and led by the Eindhoven University of Technology.
The objective of the project is to develop a family of interconnected tools for the analysis of protocols of industrial size and to advance the state of  the art in modeling and analyzing reactive systems.

The consortium of VIRES organizes a workshop on the

       Specification and Validation of Reactive Systems.

The workshop will present the state of the art in the field of specification and validation of reactive systems.

Venue: The workshop will take place at Autrans a village at 1050 m located at the heart of the Vercors massif in a landscape of pastures and forests.
