Verification Mentoring Workshop 2016:
CALL for Applications for Student Travel Scholarships

We are organizing a one‐day workshop called the Verification Mentoring
Workshop (VMW). It is co‐ located with the International Conference on
Computer Aided Verification (CAV), to be held in Toronto, July 17‐23,
2015. CAV is a premier conference in the area of verification,
dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of
computer‐aided formal analysis methods for hardware and software
systems. The goal of VMW is to attract early‐stage graduate students
to pursue research careers in the area of computer‐aided verification
and formal methods.

Invited talks at the workshop will cover a broad overview of research
topics in the area (so students can follow sessions of interest at
CAV), the range of career options and perspectives (academia,
industry, research labs, etc), and an insight into reviewing process
(for papers, grant and job applications). Participation of women and
under‐represented minorities is especially encouraged.

We will provide travel scholarships to student participants
(graduates, and rising Senior or Senior undergraduates), where the
scholarships will cover registration for the VMW workshop and CAV
conference, accommodations, plus travel expenses. The workshop website
http://i-cav.org/2016/vmw is now accepting applications.

Important Dates:
Deadline for submission of applications: April 15, 2016
Notification of travel scholarships awarded: May 1, 2016
VMW Workshop: July 18, 2016

VMW 2016 is partially supported by Microsoft Research and the NSF
(National Science Foundation, USA).
