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.

Proceedings

The papers will be freely available from Springer here from Jan 7 to Feb 3, 2018.

Travel Support for Students

PhD students can apply for a grant covering up to $1000 for travel and registration costs. We encourage particularly female students and underrepresented minorities to apply for this grant. Due to budget restrictions, a limited number of students can benefit from this support. Interested students must apply before Dec 10, 2017, 23:59 AoE, by sending a request to isil@cs.utexas.edu and palsberg@cs.ucla.edu mentioning their name, affiliation, contact information (address, email), and reason for applying for this grant. Applicants will be notified by Dec 15, 2017.
