Loopus

A Tool for Computing Symbolic Bounds on Loops in C Programs

The current version of Loopus is available as binary (64 bit binary for Linux) or source code. Installation instructions can be found in the file INSTALL which is located in the archive. The file README shows how to run loopus.

CfP: Workshop on Exploiting Concurrency Efficiently and Correctly (EC^2 2010)

The annual Workshop on Exploiting Concurrency Efficiently and Correctly (EC2) is a forum that brings together researchers working on formal methods for concurrency, and those working on advanced parallel applications. Its goal is to stimulate incubation of ideas leading to future concurrent system design an verification tools that are essential in the multi-core era.
