Welcome to the website of the International Conference on Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation 2018.

VMCAI provides a forum for researchers from the communities of Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation, facilitating interaction, cross-fertilization, and advancement of hybrid methods that combine these and related areas. VMCAI 2018 will be the 19th edition in the series.

Travel Support for Students

PhD students can apply for a travel grant. We encourage particularly female students to apply for such a grant. Details on how to apply will appear right here in November 2017.

Call for Papers

VMCAI 2018 welcomes research papers on any topic related to verification, model checking, and abstract interpretation. Research contributions can report new results as well as experimental evaluations and comparisons of existing techniques. Topics include, but are not limited to: Program Verification, Model Checking, Abstract Interpretation, Abstract Domains, Program Synthesis, Static Analysis, Type Systems, Deductive Methods, Program Logics, First-Order Theories, Decision Procedures, Interpolation, Horn Clause Solving, Program Certification, Separation Logic, Probabilistic Programming and Analysis, Error Diagnosis, Detection of Bugs and Security Vulnerabilities, Program Transformations, Hybrid and Cyber-physical Systems, Concurrent Systems, Analysis of Numerical Properties.

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic, and object-oriented programming.


Submissions are restricted to 20 pages in Springer’s LNCS format, not counting references. Additional material may be placed in an appendix, to be read at the discretion of the reviewers and to be omitted in the final version. Formatting style files and further guidelines for formatting can be found at the Springer website.

Submissions must be uploaded via the paper submission site.

Accepted papers will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
