Our group has co-organized the Vienna Summer of Logic.

Research

Fundamental research topics include software model checking, test case generation, static analysis, protocol verification, and formal methods for distributed and concurrent systems. Industrial research is focusing on low level software, and embedded systems in the avionics and automotive sector.
