FMCAD Conferences

TPCD Conferences

FMCAD arose from the TPCD (Theorem Provers in Circuit Design) series of conferences:

CHARME Conferences

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.
