Information:

Today, software systems are present in all areas of our life. Their quality, however, falls prey to their complexity. This might be acceptable in some fields, but not where lives depend on them (e.g. avionics, trains, or medicine) or financial stakes are high (e.g. internet banking). In these cases, high quality of the software, especially correctness, must be taken care of.

This is the reason for the vast research in the field of (formal) methods that render high quality, or even error-free, software possible. This seminar offers a selection of current findings in this research area.

The participants to this seminar will prepare, supported by a supervisor, a presentation on a paper on such a finding. It is expected that the presenter will develop a thorough understanding of the subject matter and convey in the limited time available the essential information and insights to the audience.
