Mobility between Europe and Argentina applying Logics to Systems

Mobility between Europe and Argentina applying Logics to Systems

Objective

Computing systems are getting ever more ubiquitous, making us
dependent on their proper functioning. Therefore we require that they
are correct (i.e. they conform their intended behavior), safe (i.e.its
operation does not have catastrophic consequences), reliable,
available to provide the intended service, and secure (i.e., no user
without appropriate clearance can access or modify protected data).

Guarantees for such charcteristics rely on rigid specification and
analysis techniques for both the required system functionality as well
as its behavior. Formal methods provide a mathematical approach to
model, understand, and analyze systems, especially at early
development stages.

In this project we focus on three aspects of formal methods:
specification, verification, and synthesis. We consider the study of
both qualitative behavior and quantitative behavior (extended with
probabilistic information). We aim to study formal methods in all
their aspects: foundations (their mathematical and logical basis),
algorithmic advances (the conceptual basis for software tool
support) and practical considerations (tool construction and case
studies).

The MEALS project includes five tightly interconnected thematic work
packages. They focus on quantitative analysis of concurrent program
behaviour (WP1), reasoning tasks for specification and verification
(WP2), security and information flow properties (WP3), synthesis in
model-based systems engineering (WP4) and foundations for the
elaboration and analysis of requirements specifications (WP5).

The crosscutting concern of all these work packages is the development of
formal techniques for the specification, verification and synthesis of
dependable ubiquitous computing systems. Five carefully planned MEALS
gatherings and workshops give the project an effectve structure for
knowledge transfer, communitiy building, and result dissemination,
aimed at a sustained transcontinental collaboration.
