The algorithmic problem solving group conducts research into mathematical method, in particular the problem-solving skills involved in the formulation and solution of algorithmic problems. Our goal is to articulate these skills primarily by way of concrete examples, but also by the development of appropriate mathematical theory.

From the 25th to the 31st May 2008
FM’08 is the fifteenth in a series of symposia organized by Formal Methods Europe, http://www.fmeurope.org, an independent association whose aim is to stimulate the use of, and research on, formal methods for software development. The symposia have been notably successful in bringing together innovators and practitioners in precise mathematical methods for software development, industrial users as well as researchers.
A program of five invited talks and 23 outstanding research papers provides the opportunity to learn about the newest developments in the theory and application of formal methods. The program covers a wide range of topics, including real-time and concurrency, design, verification, communication, runtime monitoring and analysis, constraint analysis, programming language analysis, formal methods practice, and grand challenge problems. As in the previous years, an Industry Day is dedicated for practitioners to share their experiences with industrial applications. This year’s Industry Day investigates telecommunications and embedded systems, being supported by NOKIA. Speakers from five major industries will address this year’s theme, together with the Johnson Professor Arvind from MIT.
