The ACL2 Workshop Series
We hold regular workshops. In 2010, the ACL2 Workshop did a one-time
merger with TPHOLs to form the first International Conference on
Interactive Theorem Proving (ITP). Such a merger may occur again, but
whether or not that happens, the ACL2 community is encouraged to
participate in ITP. Other conferences of particular interest to the
ACL2 community include CAV (Computer Aided Verification)
(Formal Methods in Computer Aided Design).

Jared Davis has graciously supplied a listing of
bibtex entries for the 2000 through 2004 ACL2 workshops..
ACL2 input files (certifiable books) from the preceding workshops are available
from the links above. WARNING: The above links point to the original
versions of those books. In order to obtain up-to-date versions of those books
that will certify in
version of ACL2, you should
download workshops.tar.gz to the
subdirectory of your ACL2 distribution, and then gunzip and extract it. On a
Unix/Linux system you can then certify all the books by standing in the
acl2-sources/ directory and issuing the command
ACL2 Seminar at UT
An ACL2 seminar meets regularly at the University of Texas. A list of past
talks, generally accompanied by abstracts and sometimes slides, may be found on
the UT ACL2 seminar

The links listed below will take you to materials for some courses
that involve ACL2. This list is loosely maintained and incomplete,
and is given in no particular order. We strongly encourage you to
