Fourth Verified Software Competition (VSComp) 2014
14-15 June 2014

Organizers: Ernie Cohen, Marcelo Frias, Peter M?ller, Natarajan Shankar

The Fourth Verified Software Competition (VSComp) aims to showcase the
progress in verification technology.  The competition will occur over
48 hours during the weekend of 14/15 June starting with the
publication of the challenge problems at 0900 GMT of Sat June 14 and
ending with the submission deadline for the solutions at 0900 GMT of
Mon June 16.  Teams of up to three individuals can register to
participate just prior to the start of the competition at  The competition will consist of five verification
challenges (with possible sub-problems) spanning a range of domains,
including (but not limited to) sequential and concurrent algorithms,
refinement, assertional verification, and metatheory.  Teams will have
to solve the challenge problems using mechanized tools.  Teams are
allowed to use multiple tools to tackle the challenges.  Only the best
three problem solutions from each team will be taken into
consideration for evaluating team performance.  An FAQ Wiki page will
be maintained at the website to clarify questions that might come up
before or during the competition.  After the competition, solutions
will be made publicly available for peer review by the other teams.
Teams should be available to answer questions during the peer review
process, and if necessary, be prepared to make their verification
tools available for experimentation.  Based on the results of the peer
review, the organizers will evaluate the solutions for correctness,
completeness, and clarity.

The winners will be given short speaking slots at VSTTE 2014 which
takes place in Vienna during July 17, 18, 2014.  The competition will
run on an honor system to ensure that above guidelines are being
followed by each of the teams.  We especially encourage the
participation of all-student teams and teams that are using tools
developed by others.
