EPIT (École de Printemps en Informatique Théorique) is a long series of Spring schools in theoretical computer science, initiated by Maurice Nivat in 1973. Since then, it has covered various fields of computer science, and has been a key event where young researchers meet.
The theme of the 2018 school is software verification. The need for software verification in our information society has been recognized as early as in the ’70s and it is an ever-more-important concern today. Over the past decades, it has driven exciting research in various fields of theoretical computer science such as logic, automata, type systems, algorithms and complexity. Recently, verification techniques have seen rapid development and industrial adoptions, notably following the SMT revolution.
The school will cover several fundamental aspects of software verification through four lectures (6h each):
– SMT solvers, by Pascal Fontaine (LORIA) – Program verification with F*, by Cătălin Hriţcu (Inria Paris) – Bounded model-checking, by Gennaro Parlato (Uni. of Southampton) – Concurrent program logics, by Viktor Vafeiadis (MPI Kaiserslautern)
and four research talks (1h each):
– SMT, String and Security, by Philipp Rümmer (Uppsala University) – Verification of invariants for convergent replicated data types, by Gustavo Petri (Université Paris Diderot) – Traces, interpolants, and automata : Ultimate Automizer's approach to software verification, by Matthias Heizmann (University of Freiburg) – F* and security, by Antoine Delignat-Lavaud (Microsoft Research Cambridge)
