ETAPS 2013


This workshop focuses on the verification and testing of software change and upgrades. Software is usually not written all at once, but is built incrementally for several reasons:

  • Maintenance - fixing errors and flaws, hardware changes, etc.
  • Enhancements - new functionality, improved efficiency, extension, new regulations, etc.

Changes are done frequently during the lifetime of most systems and can introduce software errors that were not present in the old version or expose errors that were present before but did not get exercised. In addition, upgrades are done gradually, so the old and new versions have to co-exist in the same system. This workshop will address the issue of efficient and reliable verification of system changes and upgrades by means of formal verification and dynamic analysis techniques.
