Student Forum

Continuing the tradition of the previous years, FMCAD 2018 is hosting a Student Forum that provides a platform for graduate students at any career stage to introduce their research to the wider Formal Methods community, and solicit feedback. We highly recommend graduate students to submit to the Student Forum.

The following deadlines for student forum submissions are also 11:59 pm AoE (Anywhere on Earth)


FMCAD 2018 is the eighteenth in a series of conferences on the theory and applications of formal methods in hardware and system verification. FMCAD provides a leading forum to researchers in academia and industry for presenting and discussing groundbreaking methods, technologies, theoretical results, and tools for reasoning formally about computing systems. FMCAD covers formal aspects of computer-aided system design including verification, specification, synthesis, and testing.

FMCAD was first held in 1996, and was a bi-annual conference until 2006, when the FMCAD and CHARME conferences merged into a single annual conference. Before merging, FMCAD was held in the United States on even years and its sister conference, CHARME, was held in Europe on odd years. Since 2006, the FMCAD conference has been held annually at various international venues.

Program Highlights


Keynote speakers will be Grant Passmore (Aesthetic Integration, Ltd and Clare Hall, Cambridge) and Grigore Rosu (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign).


Tutorials by Nina Narodytska (VMware Research), Oded Padon (Stanford University) and Marijn Heule (University of Texas at Austin).
