                      4th International Workshop on 
                              (PDMC 2005)

		   July 10, 2005 - Lisboa, Portugal
		   Workshop affiliated to ICALP'05

OBJECTIVES: The growing importance of automated formal verification in
industry is driving a growing interest in those aspects which have a
direct impact on its applicability to real world problems. One of the
main technical challenges is in devising tools that allow to handle
large state spaces. Over the last years numerous approaches have been
developed. Recently, an increasing interest is in parallelizing and
distributing of verification techniques.

The aim of the PDMC workshop series is to cover all aspects of
parallel and distributed methods and techniques for formal
verification. Theoretical results, algorithms and case studies are
equally welcome. Contributions from the domains of model checking,
theorem proving, and equivalence checking are anticipated.

The PDMC workshop aims to provide a working forum for presenting,
sharing, and discussing recent achievements in the field of parallel
and distributed verification. The workshop will consist of invited
talks and a selection from submitted papers.

SCOPE AND TOPICS: Papers describing recent work on all aspects of
parallel and distributed verification are solicited as contributions
to PDMC. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* parallel and distributed model checking 
* parallel and distributed equivalence checking 
* parallel and distributed satisfiability checking
* slicing and distributing the state space
* distributed theorem proving
* distributed constraints solving
* parallel methods in probabilistic model checking
* file systems for distributed transitions systems
* parallel methods in performance evaluation
* tools and case studies
* industrial applications  
    * Kim G. Larsen (Aalborg University, Denmark) 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: There are two categories of submissions:
regular papers and presentations.

    * Manuscripts of regular papers are limited to a maximum of 10
      pages (excluding bibliography and technical appendices) in
      postscript or PDF format (ENTCS style strongly recommended).

    * Presentations report on relevant results submitted to other
      forums or already published or on not yet finished work in
      progress. Presentations will appear in the workshop preliminary
      proceedings, but will not be considered for the final workshop
      proceedings. The space limit for presentations is 10 pages
      (excluding bibliography and technical appendices) in postscript
      or PDF format (ENTCS style strongly recommended).

Submissions should be made electronically using PDMC'05 Submission Page.

PROCEEDINGS: The preliminary workshop proceedings will be available at
the meeting. The final proceedings appear as a volume of Electronic
Notes in Theoretical Computer Science. After the workshop, selected
authors will be invited to submit full versions of their papers
(regular papers or presentation results not submitted for journal
publication) to a special section of a journal (under negotiation).

    * Submission deadline:        April 25, 2005
    * Notification of acceptance: May   16, 2005 
    * Presentations deadline:     May   22, 2005 
    * Final version:              June   3, 2005
