Description of the Workshop 

Numerical computations are ubiquitous in digital systems: supervision, 
prediction, simulation and signal processing rely heavily on numerical 
calculus to achieve desired goals.  Design and verification of 
numerical algorithms has a unique set of challenges, which set it 
apart from rest of software verification. To achieve the verification 
and validation of global properties, numerical techniques need to 
precisely represent local behaviors of each component. The 
implementation of numerical techniques on modern hardware adds another 
layer of approximation because of the use of finite representations of 
infinite precision numbers that usually lack basic arithmetic 
properties such as commutativity and associativity. Finally, the 
development and analysis of cyber-physical systems (CPS) which involve 
the interacting continuous and discrete components pose a further 
challenge. It is hence imperative to develop logical and mathematical 
techniques for the reasoning about programmability and reliability. 
The NSV workshop is dedicated to the development of such techniques. 



The scope of the workshop includes, but is not restricted to, the 
following topics: 

- Quantitative and qualitative analysis of hybrid systems 
- Models and abstraction techniques 
- Optimal control of dynamical systems 
- Parameter identification for hybrid systems 
- Numerical optimization methods 
- Hybrid systems verification 
- Applications of hybrid systems to systems biology 
- Propagation of uncertainties, deterministic and probabilistic models 
- Specifications of correctness for numerical programs 
- Formal specification and verification of numerical programs 
- Quality of finite precision implementations 
- Numerical properties of control software 
- Validation for space, avionics, automotive and real-time applications 
- Validation for scientific computing programs 

Submission information 

We solicit regular and short papers. Paper submission must be 
performed via the EasyChair system: 

Regular papers must describe original work, be written and presented 
in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have 
been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a 
conference with refereed proceedings. Submitted papers will be judged 
on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and 
clarity. They should clearly identify what has been accomplished and 
why it is significant. 

Regular paper submissions should not exceed 15 pages in LNCS style, 
including bibliography and well-marked appendices: 


Program committee members are not required to read the appendices, and 
thus papers must be intelligible without them. 

Short papers are also welcome, they should present tools, benchmarks, 
case-studies or be extended abstracts of ongoing research. Short 
papers should not exceed 6 pages. 

All accepted papers will be published as Lecture Notes in Computer 
Science (LNCS) with Springer Verlag.
