Welcome to COCV 2009

Workshop Description

COCV 2009 will be held in conjunction with the 12th European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS 2009) in York, England, in March 2009. The COCV workshop provides a forum for researchers and practitioners working on optimizing and verifying compilation, and on related fields such as translation validation, certifying compilation and embedded systems with a special emphasis on hardware verification, formal synthesis methods, correctness aspects in HW/SW co-design, formal verification of hardware/software systems, and practical and industrial applications of formal techniques for exchanging their latest findings, and for plumbing the mutual impact of these fields on each other. By encouraging discussions and co-operations across different, yet related fields, the workshop strives for bridging the gap between the communities, and for stimulating synergies and cross-fertilizations among them. Submission of papers at the joint of all these fields is solicited.
