Verification Mentoring Workshop Student Scholarships

Verification Mentoring Workshop 2015:
CALL for Applications for Student Travel Scholarships

We are organizing a new one-day workshop called the Verification Mentoring
Workshop (VMW). It is co-located with the International Conference on Computer
Aided Verification (CAV), to be held in San Francisco, July 18-24, 2015. CAV
is a premier conference in the area of verification, dedicated to the
advancement of the theory and practice of computer-aided formal analysis
methods for hardware and software systems.

The goal of VMW is to attract early-stage graduate students to pursue research
careers in the area of computer-aided verification and formal methods. Invited
talks at the workshop will cover a broad overview of research topics in the
area (so students can follow sessions of interest at CAV), the range of career
options and perspectives (academia, industry, research labs, etc.), and job
search advice (especially from young researchers). Participation of women and
under-represented minorities is especially encouraged.

We will provide travel scholarships to student participants, where the
scholarships will cover registration for the VMW workshop and CAV conference,
accommodations, plus travel expenses. The workshop website
( is now accepting applications for
student travel scholarships.

Deadline for submission of applications: April 20, 2015
Notification of travel scholarships awarded: May 1, 2015
