2nd International Workshop on Symbolic and Numerical Methods for
Reachability Analysis

Affiliated with CPSWeek 2016


Important Dates

Submission deadline: *February 3*, 2016

Hybrid systems are complex dynamical systems that combine discrete
and continuous components. Reachability questions, regarding whether a
system can run into a certain subset of its state space, stand at the
core of verification and synthesis problems for hybrid systems.

There are several successful methods for hybrid systems reachability
analysis. Some methods explicitly construct flow-pipes that
overapproximate the set of reachable states over time, where efficient
computation of such overapproximations requires symbolic
representations such as support functions. Other methods based on
satisfiability checking technologies, symbolically encode reachability
properties as logical formulas, while solving such formulas requires
numerically-driven decision procedures. Last but not least, also
automated deduction and the usage of theorem provers led to efficient
analysis approaches. The goal of this workshop is to bring together
researchers working with different reachability analysis techniques
and to seek for synergies between symbolic and numerical approaches.

The SNR workshop solicits papers broadly in the area of verification
and synthesis of continuous and hybrid systems. The scope of the
workshop includes, but is not restricted to, the following topics:

- Reachability analysis approaches for hybrid systems
- Flow-pipe construction; symbolic state set representations
- Trajectory generation from symbolic paths; counterexample computation
- Abstraction techniques for hybrid systems
- Reliable integration
- Decision procedures for real arithmetic
- Automated deduction
- Logics to reason about hybrid systems
- Reachability analysis for planning and synthesis
- Domain-specific approaches in biology, robotics, etc.
- Stochastic/probabilistic hybrid systems

Submission Information

The workshop solicits long (maximal 10 pages) and short research
papers (maximal 6 pages). Submissions must present original
unpublished work which is not submitted elsewhere. In order to foster
the exchange of ideas, we also encourage work-in-progress (WiP) papers
(maximal 6 pages). They should present recent/on-going work.

The papers should be written in English and formatted according to the
IEEE guidelines for conference proceedings

Papers can be submitted using the EasyChair system:

All submissions will undergo a peer-reviewing process.

Accepted research papers (i.e., except for WiP papers) will be
published electronically in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library
