[DMANET] 2nd Workshop on Multi-objective Reasoning in Verification and Synthesis (MoRe 2019): call for participation

[Apologies for multiple copies]


2nd International Workshop on
Multi-objective Reasoning in Verification and Synthesis

MoRe 2019

Saturday 22nd June 2019, Vancouver, Canada
LICS 2019 workshop



MoRe aims at bringing together researchers interested in multi-objective
reasoning for verification and synthesis.

Traditionally, verification and synthesis techniques focus on a single
qualitative or quantitative objective for the reactive system. In
practice, it is often desired that systems satisfy a functional
requirement expressed as a qualitative property, while optimising some
quantitative dimension (e.g., reach a target state while minimising the
energy consumption). Furthermore, there are numerous application
contexts in which reasoning simultaneously about multiple, heterogeneous
quantitative and qualitative characteristics is important. In many cases,
the analysis of such systems may be complicated by the fact that there are
trade-offs between objectives. Such trade-offs may also arise between
several interpretations of the same quantitative dimension: for example,
between the average-case and the worst-case performance of a system.

MoRe is a meeting place for researchers in the area of multi-objective
reasoning for verification and synthesis, with topics of interest
ranging from novel theoretical models to industrial challenges and
practical applications. Typical topics of the workshop include, but are
not limited to, formal approaches toward verification and synthesis in
the following settings:

- games (and related models) with multiple qualitative and quantitative
- multi-criteria reasoning in probabilistic models (e.g., percentile
queries, quantiles, trade-off between worst-case and average-case
- extensions of timed automata including probabilistic or weighted
- stochastic hybrid systems;
- temporal logics enabling quantitative reasoning;
- probabilistic programs;
- practical applications involving multi-objective challenges;
- any related attempt to tackle trade-offs between multiple criteria in
formal models for verification and synthesis.
