The formal verification of critical information systems has a long
tradition as one of the main areas of application for automated theorem
proving. Nevertheless, the area is of still growing importance as the
number of computers affecting everyday life and the complexity of these
systems are both increasing. The purpose of the VERIFY workshop series
is to discuss problems arising during the formal modeling and
verification of information systems and to investigate suitable
solutions. Possible perspectives include those of automated theorem
proving, tool support, system engineering, and applications.

The VERIFY workshop series aims at bringing together people who are
interested in the development of safety and security critical systems,
in formal methods, in the development of automated theorem proving
techniques, and in the development of tool support. Practical
experiences gained in realistic verifications are of interest to the
automated theorem proving community and new theorem proving techniques
should be transferred into practice. The overall objective of the VERIFY
workshops is to identify open problems and to discuss possible solutions
under the theme

What are the verification problems? What are the deduction techniques?

The scope of VERIFY includes topics such as

+ ATP techniques in verification 	  + Information flow control
+ Case studies (specif. & verific.) 	  + Refinement & Decomposition
+ Combination of verification tools       + Mobile computing reliability
+ Integration of ATPs and CASE-tools 	  + Reuse of specs & proofs
+ Compositional & modular reasoning 	  + Management of change
+ Experience reports with formal methods  + Safety-critical systems
+ Gaps between problems and techniques 	  + Security models
+ Formal methods for fault tolerance      + Tool support

Submissions are encouraged in one of the following two categories:

A.  Regular papers:
Submissions in this category should describe previously unpublished work
(completed or in progress), including descriptions of research, tools,
and applications.  Papers must be formatted following the Springer LNCS
guidelines and be 6-15 pages long.

B.  Discussion papers: Submissions in this category are intended to
initiate discussions and should address controversial issues, and may
include provocative statements.  Papers must be formatted following the
Springer LNCS guidelines and be 3-15 pages long.

Submission of papers is via EasyChair at http://www.easychair.org/VERIFY07

The workshop proceedings will be distributed at the workshop as a
collection of the accepted papers; they will also be made available as
CEUR Workshop Proceedings.

A journal special issue on the topic of the VERIFY workshop is planned.
Participants of VERIFY'07 are particularly encouraged to submit a paper
to the special issue, but other submissions will also be accepted.
