11/02/2015 - Three conferences and a workshop, all in the field of formal verification and system design, were held from the end of September through the beginning of October. The first, MEMOCODE ‘15, in its thirteenth year, is dedicated to bringing principles of formal methods to hardware development, which enables hardware designers to prove rigorously that their chips will function as intended. Indeed, as hardware has grown exponentially more complex, traditional methods of testing have become unreliable, and instead formal proofs of correctness are preferred. Read more
