Rust Verification Workshop


Sunday, 26 Apr 2020

Dublin, Ireland

co-located with ETAPS 2020

Rust is a new programming language for writing performant code with strong type and memory safety guarantees. It is now considered a serious alternative to C and C++ for systems programming, because it provides high-level abstractions but without the cost of garbage collection. Given the growing popularity of Rust, and given that bugs in systems programs can be costly, there is growing interest in the program verification community for building program verifiers for Rust. In this workshop, we aim to bring together language designers, application developers and formal verification tool builders, to exchange ideas and build collaborations around developing verified Rust programs. The workshop will solicit 2-page submissions for presentations; the workshop format will be a mix of invited talks, presentations and tool demos. There will be no proceedings, though we plan to collect presentation slides and make them available on the workshop site after the meeting.
