Meeting's results

The discussion fully supported actually creating the working group.

Concerning the mission statement it was suggested that the logic component be stressed further, that we should make sure to involve control theory and that we should be open to neighbouring areas like performance guarantees; the latter could be accomplished by inviting guest speakers to future meetings. It was also suggested that theorem proving be mentioned as a relevant technology. Concerning application areas it was suggested that life sciences (applications to biology) should be worked better into the document and that the security component should be strengthened.

Concerning the duration of the meetings a two day meeting colocated with a relevant conference was favoured. It is not the intention ot create a meeting with accepted papers but rather to keep it an informal venue intended to create synergies. Some concrete suggestions were to colocate with QEST and FORMATS whereas ETAPS was felt to be a bit crowded (and there was the unfortunate scheduling of MLQA and QAPL on the same day) and ICALP and DiscoTec were found not to be too close in topic. Indeed QEST and FORMATS will be held in 2011 in Aachen and Joost-Pieter Katoen (present at the meeting) will be the organizer.

Concerning the contents of the meeting it was suggested that an effort should be made to make the meetings “special”. Ideas could be to contrast “opposing” analysis techniques, to present and share case studies of a reasonable size that could be addressed using various techniques. In other words to actually avoid the risk of becoming yet another conference. Once the board of the working group is in place it would be the duty of the board to make this kind of planning.
