ADHS 2018

Registration is open at www.floc2018.org/register/.

There are two main categories, Student and Regular. Whilst you might also register for other events (conferences, workshops, or public events) at FLOC in Oxford, please make sure you follow these instructions: 

— The registration to ADHS18 is under ‘Workshops’. Workshops are charged per day, and ADHS18 is a 3-day workshop. 
— Upon selecting the relevant event at FLOC (third page of registration form), please tick three 1-day passes for July 11, 12, and 13 (and select ADHS18 on the following page). 
— We hope you’ll also consider attending the special ADHS18 banquet at Balliol College, held on July 12: please make sure to select the relevant field on the same page.

FLoC 2018 registration

During the past forty years there has been extensive, continuous, and growing interaction between logic and computer science. In many respects, logic provides computer science with both a unifying foundational framework and a tool for modeling. In fact, logic has been called “the calculus of computer science”, playing a crucial role in diverse areas such as artificial intelligence, computational complexity, distributed computing, database systems, hardware design, programming languages, and software engineering.

The Federated Logic Conference brings together several international conferences related to mathematical logic and computer science. One can now register for attending FLoC 2018! See here for more details.

A list of FAQ questions related to registration can also be found here.




The FLoC Volunteer programme
Registration for 'The FLoC Volunteer programme' has now opened.  FLoC’18 volunteers will be able to interact with speakers and participants, network with other researchers and meet graduate students from all over the world.
Application details for the FLoC’18 Volunteer Programme are available here.  For questions, please write [email protected].

Best Overall Presentation winner!

The Oxbridge Women in Computer Science Conference is an annual conference that brings together junior and senior female computer scientists at Cambridge and Oxford, encourages collaboration through formal and informal discussion, and provides a perfect opportunity for young researchers to present their research and get valuable feedback in an open, friendly and informal environment.This year the event was held in Cambridge and our group member, Nathalie Cauchi, won the Best Overall Presentation for presenting her work. The presentation was titled; "Efficient probabilistic model checking for Smart Buildings using Fault Maintenance trees" and focuses on the work presented in BuildSys'17.  


A new web page celebrates the women of the department. #InternationalWomenDay2018 www.cs.ox.ac.uk/women. Our very own Nathalie Cauchi is featured in the DPhil student profile :)  

Call for submission to 5th Int. Workshop on ARCH is now up!

The workshop on applied verification for continuous and hybrid systems (ARCH) brings together researchers and practitioners to establish a curated set of benchmarks and test them in a friendly competition.

Verification of continuous and hybrid systems is increasing in importance due to new cyber-physical systems that are safety- or operation-critical. This workshop addresses verification techniques for continuous and hybrid systems with a special focus on the transfer from theory to practice. Topics include, but are not limited to

  • Proposals for new benchmark problems (not necessarily yet solvable)
  • Tool presentations
  • Tool executions and evaluations based on ARCH benchmarks
  • Experience reports including open issues for industrial success
  • Reports on results of our friendly competition (separate call)

Researchers are welcome to submit examples, tools and benchmarks that have already appeared in brief form, but whose details were omitted. The online benchmark repository allows researchers to include modeling details, parameters, simulation results, etc. Submissions are encouraged, but not required, to include executable data (models, configuration files, code etc.). It is not required to show that the benchmark has a solution; it suffices that the problem is described in enough detail that somebody else can try to solve it.

The submission deadline is 6th April 2018.

Initial paper submissions to CDC coming up!

The initial paper submission to the 57th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control (CDC) is coming up: 20th March 2018.

The CDC is recognized as the premier scientific and engineering conference dedicated to the advancement of the theory and practice of systems and control. The CDC annually brings together an international community of researchers and practitioners in the field of automatic control to discuss new research results, perspectives on future developments, and innovative applications relevant to decision making, automatic control, and related areas.

The 57th IEEE Conference on Decision and Control will be held Monday through Wednesday, December 17-19, 2018 at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach, FL, USA. The conference will be preceded by technical workshops on Sunday, December 16, 2018.
