For the past several years, CHARME (Correct Hardware Design and
Verification Methods) and FMCAD have been sister conferences, with
substantial overlap in research coverage and communities. In
particular, FMCAD was held in the United States in even-numbered years
and CHARME was held in Europe in odd-numbered years. In 2006 the two
conferences have decided to merge, and as a result, FMCAD has now
become a yearly conference.

The CHARME conference series has been held under the "CHARME" name
starting 1993. The roots of CHARME go back to 1984, to the early days
of formal hardware verification. Before 1993, the events in the
series were held under various different names, but the purpose (and
the community) were the the same. The following list traces the early
history of this conference series.
