    Special Session: Design, Testing and Formal Verification Techniques
    for Integrated Circuits and Systems

    DTVCS 2008

    August 18-20, 2008 (Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, USA)

    Special Session in the IASTED International Conference on Circuits and
    Systems (CS 2008)
    The IASTED International Conference on Circuits and Systems (CS 2008)
    will take place in
    Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, USA, August 18-20, 2008.

    Aims and Scope
    The main target of the Special Session DTVCS is to bring together
    engineering researchers,
    computer scientists, practitioners and people from industry to
    exchange theories, ideas,
    techniques and experiences related to the areas of design, testing and
    formal verification techniques
    for integrated circuits and systems. Contributions on UML and formal
    paradigms based on process algebras,
    petri-nets, automaton theory and BDDs in the context of design,
    testing and formal verification techniques
    for integrated circuits and systems are also encouraged.

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

    * digital, analog, mixed-signal and RF test
    * built-in self test
    * ATPG
    * theory and foundations: model checking, SAT-based methods, use of
    PSL, compositional methods and probabilistic methods
    * applications of formal methods: equivalence checking, CSP
    applications and transaction-level verification
    * verification through hybrid techniques
    * verification methods based on hardware description/system-level
    languages (e.g. VHDL, SystemVerilog and SystemC)
    * testing and verification applications: tools, industrial experience
    reports and case studies
