Verification of Multi-Party Ping-Pong Protocols via Program Transformation

ABSTRACT. The paper describes a verification technique based on program transformation with unfolding that allows to find short attacks on multi-party ping-pong protocols in the Dolev-Yao intruder model. Protocols are modelled by prefix grammars, and questions of model optimization and complexity are considered.

Program Verification using Constraint Handling Rules and Array Constraint Generalizations
SPEAKER: unknown

ABSTRACT. The transformation of constraint logic programs (CLP programs) has been shown to be an effective methodology for verifying properties of imperative programs. By following this methodology, we encode the negation of a partial correctness property of an imperative program \textit{prog} as a predicate {\tt incorrect} defined by a CLP program $P$, and we show that \textit{prog} is correct by transforming $P$ into the empty program through the application of semantics preserving transformation rules. Some of these rules perform replacements of constraints that encode properties of the data structures manipulated by the program \textit{prog}. In this paper we show that Constraint Handling Rules (CHR) are a suitable formalism for representing and applying constraint replacements during the transformation of CLP programs. In particular, we consider programs that manipulate integer arrays and we present a CHR encoding of a constraint replacement strategy based on the theory of arrays. We also propose a novel generalization strategy for constraints on integer arrays that combines the CHR constraint replacement strategy with various generalization operator for linear constraints, such as widening and convex hull. Generalization is controlled by additional constraints that relate the variable identifiers in the imperative program and the CLP representation of their values. The method presented in this paper has been implemented and we have demonstrated its effectiveness on a set of benchmark programs taken from the literature.

A Note on Program Specialization. What Syntactical Properties of Residual Programs Can Reveal?
SPEAKER: unknown

ABSTRACT. {Regular paper} The paper presents two examples of non-traditional using of program specialization by Turchin's supercompilation method. In both cases we are interested in syntactical properties of residual programs produced by supercompilation. In the first example we apply supercompilation to a program encoding a word equation and as a result we obtain a program representing a graph describing the solution set of the word equation. The idea of the second example belongs to Alexandr V. Korlyukov. He considered an interpreter simulating the dynamic of the well known missionaries-cannibals puzzle. Supercompilation of the interpreter allows us to solve the puzzle. The interpreter may also be seen as an encoding of a non-deterministic protocol.

Location: FH, Seminarraum 134A
Invited talk: Towards Constraint-Solving over Higher-Order Unbounded Datatypes using Formal Methods Tools
We argue that formal methods such as B can be used to conveniently express a wide range of constraint satisfaction problems.
We also show that some problems can be solved quite effectively by existing formal methods tools such as Alloy or ProB.
We illustrate our claim on several examples.
Our approach is particularly interesting when a high assurance of correctness is required.
Indeed, validation and double checking of solutions is available for certain formal methods tools and formal proof can be applied to establish important properties or
 provide unambiguous semantics to problem specifications.
The experiments also provide interesting insights about the effectiveness of existing formal method tools, and highlight interesting avenues for future uimprovement.

Foundations and Technology Competitions Award Ceremony

ABSTRACT. The third round of the Kurt Gödel Research Prize Fellowships Program, under the title: Connecting Foundations and Technology, aims at supporting young scholars in early stages of their academic careers by offering highest fellowships in history of logic, kindly supported by the John Templeton Foundation. Young scholars being less or exactly 40 years old at the time of the commencement of the Vienna Summer of Logic (July 9, 2014) will be awarded one fellowship award in the amount of EUR 100,000, in each of the following categories:

  • Logical Foundations of Mathematics,
  • Logical Foundations of Computer Science, and
  • Logical Foundations of Artificial Intelligence

The following three Boards of Jurors were in charge of choosing the winners:

  • Logical Foundations of Mathematics: Jan Krajíček, Angus Macintyre, and Dana Scott (Chair).
  • Logical Foundations of Computer Science: Franz Baader, Johann Makowsky, and Wolfgang Thomas (Chair).
  • Logical Foundations of Artificial Intelligence: Luigia Carlucci Aiello, Georg Gottlob (Chair), and Bernhard Nebel.


FLoC Olympic Games Award Ceremony 1

ABSTRACT. The aim of the FLoC Olympic Games is to start a tradition in the spirit of the ancient Olympic Games, a Panhellenic sport festival held every four years in the sanctuary of Olympia in Greece, this time in the scientific community of computational logic. Every four years, as part of the Federated Logic Conference, the Games will gather together all the challenging disciplines from a variety of computational logic in the form of the solver competitions.

At the Award Ceremonies, the competition organizers will have the opportunity to present their competitions to the public and give away special prizes, the prestigious Kurt Gödel medals, to their successful competitors. This reinforces the main goal of the FLoC Olympic Games, that is, to facilitate the visibility of the competitions associated with the conferences and workshops of the Federated Logic Conference during the Vienna Summer of Logic.

This award ceremony will host the

  • 3rd Confluence Competition (CoCo 2014);
  • Configurable SAT Solver Challenge (CSSC 2014);
  • Ninth Max-SAT Evaluation (Max-SAT 2014);
  • QBF Gallery 2014; and
  • SAT Competition 2014 (SAT-COMP 2014).
