The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers from academia and industry which are actively working in the fields of Games, Automata, Logics, and Formal Verification.
The idea is to cover an ample spectrum of themes, ranging from theory to applications, and stimulate cross-fertilization. Papers focused on formal methods are especially welcome. Authors are invited to submit original research or tool papers on all relevant topics in these areas. Papers discussing new ideas that are at an early stage of development are also welcome.
Topics of Interest
The topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Automata Theory
- Automated Deduction
- Computational aspects of Game Theory
- Concurrency and Distributed computation
- Decision Procedures
- Deductive, Compositional, and Abstraction Techniques for Verification
- Finite Model Theory
- First-order and Higher-order Logics
- Formal Languages
- Formal Methods for Systems Biology, Hybrid, Embedded, and Mobile Systems
- Games and Automata for Verification
- Game Semantics
- Logical aspects of Computational Complexity
- Logics of Programs
- Modal and Temporal Logics
- Model Checking
- Models of Reactive and Real-Time Systems
- Program Analysis and Software Verification
- Run-time Verification and Testing
- Specification and Verification of Finite and Infinite-state Systems
The proceedings will be published by Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science. A special issue of a major international journal to publish an extended and revised version of the best symposium papers is also under consideration. Revised versions of the selected papers from the previous editions lead to one special issue of the International Journal of Foundation of Computer Science (GandALF 2010), two special issues of Theoretical Computer Science (GandALF 2011 and 2012), and one special issue of Information and Computation (GandALF 2013).
Submitted papers should not exceed fourteen (14) pages using EPTCS format (please use the LaTeX style provided at http://style.eptcs.org), be unpublished and contain original research. For papers reporting experimental results, authors are encouraged to make their data available with their submission.
