HELMUT VEITH (1971-2016)
  http://forsyte.at/2016/03/helmut-veith-1971-2016/
* The Faculty of Informatics at TU Wien and the whole computer science
  community mourn the loss of Helmut Veith, who passed away on March
  12, 2016 at the age of 45: "Helmut Veith was researcher and teacher
  with heart and soul. With his death, the Faculty of Informatics and
  the TU Wien has lost one of its most outstanding and innovative
  leaders. The Austrian science community, and indeed the
  international computer science community, has lost a highly
  respected and influential member. He was also a well-rounded
  academic with interests, e.g., in literature and performing
  arts. Helmut Veith was a cooperative and open colleague and a very
  good friend to us all.  His death leaves a void that will never be
  filled; we will miss him. It is incomprehensible that he would be
  taken from us in the prime of his life. He already created so many
  things, but there were also so many hopes. His work and legacy will
  be our mission."

AUTOMATED REASONING IN QUANTIFIED NON-CLASSICAL LOGICS
2ND INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP (ARQNL 2016)
  Call for papers
  1 July 2016, Coimbra, Portugal
  http://iltp.de/ARQNL-2016/
  associated with IJCAR 2016
* Important dates
  Abstract submission: 2 May 2016
  Paper submission: 9 May 2016
* Non-classical logics -- such as modal logics, conditional logics,
  intuitionistic logic, description logics, temporal logics, linear
  logic, dynamic logic, fuzzy logic, paraconsistent logic, relevance
  logic -- have many applications in AI, Computer Science, Philosophy,
  Linguistics and Mathematics. Hence, the automation of proof search
  in these logics is a crucial task.  The ARQNL workshop aims at
  fostering the development of proof calculi, automated theorem
  proving systems and model finders for all sorts of quantified
  non-classical logics. The workshop will provide a forum for
  researchers to present and discuss recent developments in this area.
  The contributions may range from theory to system descriptions and
  implementations. Contributions may also outline relevant
  applications and describe example problems and benchmarks. We
  welcome contributions from computer scientists, linguists,
  philosophers, and mathematicians.
* Paper formats:
  Research papers (up to 15 pages), or short papers, talk abstracts,
  and system demonstrations (up to 6 pages) are solicited.
* Publication:
  Proceedings will be published in the EasyChair Proceedings in
  Computing (EPiC) series.

THE 6TH HALMSTAD SUMMER SCHOOL ON TESTING (HSST 2016)
  Call for participation and abstracts
  June 13 - 16, 2016, Halmstad University, Sweden
  http://ceres.hh.se/mediawiki/index.php/HSST_2016
* SCOPE. Software testing accounts for a major part of software
  development cost and effort, yet the current practice of software
  testing is often insufficiently structured and disciplined.  There
  have been various attempts in the past decades to bring more rigour
  and structure into this field, resulting in several
  industrial-strength processes, techniques and tools for different
  levels of testing.  The 6th Halmstad Summer School on Testing
  provides an overview of the state of the art in testing, including
  theory, industrial cases, tools and hands-on tutorials by
  internationally-renowned researchers.
* TUTORIALS.
  - Automatic Software Verification with the Infer Static Analyzer
    (Dino Distefano, Queen Mary, University of London and Facebook,
    UK)
  - Testing and Verification Methods for Many-Core Concurrency
    (Alastair F. Donaldson, Imperial College, UK)
  - Is Mutation Analysis Ready for Prime Time? (Jeff Offutt, George
    Mason University, USA)
  - Fault Model-Based Testing from State-Oriented Models (Alexandre
    Petrenko, Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM), Canada)
  - The Role of Testing and Tools for Innovation (Per Runeson, Lund
    University, Sweden)
  - Fault Tree Analysis (Marielle Stoelinga, University of Twente, The
    Netherlands)
* Ph.D. Symposium
  We have 6 time slots for Ph.D. presentations, where each student
  gets to present her/his research project (and possibly results) and
  receive feedback from our experts. We solicit abstracts of 2 pages
  in the EasyChair Style in order to make a selection
  (see:http://www.easychair.org/publications/for_authors ). The
  abstract should contain a clear overview of the problem description,
  approach, (existing results, if any,) and future milestone.
  Abstract submissions can be made already via
  https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hsst2016 .
* IMPORTANT DATES
  - The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2016.
  - The registration deadline is April 15, 2016.

16TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON RUNTIME VERIFICATION (RV 2016)
  September 23-30, Madrid, Spain
  http://rv2016.imag.fr
* SCOPE: Runtime verification is concerned with monitoring and analysis
  of software and hardware system executions. Runtime verification
  techniques are crucial for system correctness, reliability, and
  robustness; they are significantly more powerful and versatile than
  conventional testing, and more practical than exhaustive formal
  verification. Runtime verification can be used prior to deployment,
  for testing, verification, and debugging purposes, and after
  deployment for ensuring reliability, safety, and security and for
  providing fault containment and recovery as well as online system
  repair. Topics of interest to the conference include:
  - specification languages
  - specification mining
  - program instrumentation
  - monitor construction techniques
  - logging, recording, and replay
  - runtime enforcement, fault detection, localization, containment,
    recovery and repair
  - program steering and adaptation
  - metrics and statistical information gathering
  - combination of static and dynamic analyses
  - program execution visualization
  - monitoring techniques for safety/mission-critical systems
  - monitoring distributed systems, cloud services, and big data applications
  - monitoring security and privacy policies
* INVITED SPEAKERS
  Gul Agha (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA)
  Oded Maler (CNRS and University of Grenoble-Alpes, France)
  Fred B. Schneider (Cornell University, USA)
* OVERVIEW: RV 2016 will be held September 23-30 in Madrid, Spain. RV
  2016 will feature the first summer school on Runtime Verification
  (September 23-25), two workshop days (September 26-25), and three
  conference days (September 28-30).

FOURTH CONFRENCE ON HIGHLIGHTS OF LOGIC, GAMES AND AUTOMATA (HIGHLIGHTS 2016)
  Call for Presentations
  September 6-9, 2016, Brussels, Belgium
  http://highlights-conference.org
* HIGHLIGHTS 2016 is the fourth conference on Highlights of Logic,
  Games and Automata which aims at integrating the community working
  in these fields.  Papers from these areas are dispersed across many
  conferences, which makes them difficult to follow. A visit to
  Highlights conference should offer a wide picture of the latest
  research in the field and a chance to meet everybody in the
  community, not just those who happen to publish in one particular
  proceedings volume. We encourage you to attend and present your best
  work, be it already published or not, at the Highlights conference.
* Representative areas include, but are not restricted to: logic and
  finite model theory, automata theory, games for logic and
  verification.
* You submit a proposal for a presentation, not a paper. Hence,
  submissions should have a single author, who is the speaker. Since
  we expect you to present your favorite result of the year, there
  should be at most one submission per speaker. The abstract, of 1-2
  pages, may include a list of coauthors.  There are no formal
  proceedings and we encourage submission of work presented
  elsewhere. Submissions are possible through
  https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=3Dhighlights2016.
* The program will further offer three keynotes by Meena Mahajan
  (Chennai), Andreas Maletti (Stuttgart), and Marc Zeitoun (Bordeaux),
  two invited sessions, organised by S=C5=82awomir Lasota (Warsaw) and
  Anca Muscholl (Bordeaux), and two tutorials by Benedikt Bollig
  (Cachan) and Anton=C3=ADn Ku=C4=8Dera (Prague).
