      First International Workshop on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems (VECoS 2007) - Index



      First International Workshop on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems (VECoS 2007) (VECoS)

      Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems

      5 - 6 May 2007



            The aim of the workshop is to bring together the researchers and practitioners in the areas of verification, control, performance and QoS evaluation and assessment dependability, to discuss the state of the art for solving the challenges facing us today in various modern computer and communication systems in which functional and non functional properties are strongly mixed.

            Thus, the main motivation for VECoS is to encourage the cross-fertilization between verification and evaluation approaches, methods and techniques especially those based on the specification formalisms for concurrent systems (i.e. process algebras, transition systems, automata networks, Petri nets, rewrite logic... etc).

            The International Workshop on Verification and Evaluation of Computer and Communication Systems (VECoS) held in 2007 in Algiers, Algeria, is the first of a series of events created by an Euro-Maghrebian network of researchers in computer science.

            The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry to present their results, and exchange experience, ideas, and solutions for their problems in theoretical and practical aspects on verification and evaluation of computer and communication systems.

            Beyond its technical and scientific goals, another main purpose of VECoS is to promote cooperation in research and education in the area of computer science and engineering between participants and their institutions.

            These proceedings gather the contributions from the invited speakers and the papers selected by the Program Committee members among the submitted contributions. We present four invited papers and twelve technical papers, selected out of thirty-eight submissions.

            The programme committee includes researchers from twenty-nine laboratories. Each of the thirty-eight papers was evaluated by at least three reviewers. After the evaluation, reports were returned to the programme committee for discussion and resolution of conflicts. Based on their recommendations, we concluded the consensus process, and selected the twelve papers that we present here.

            We are grateful to all members of the programme and organising committees, and to all reviewers for their hard work. Without the support of our institutions, VECoS 2007 could not have been a reality. Their recognition of the importance of this event is greatly appreciated.

            Finally, we would like to thank all the authors of the invited and submitted papers, and all the participants to the workshop. They are the main focus of the whole event.

            The program will not be a success without participations and fruitful discussions from the audience. We are looking forward for your active contribution to the workshop and we hope that you will find our efforts worthwhile. We wish you a pleasant stay in Algiers.
