Distributed and Predictable Software Model Checking
Nuno P. Lopes,
In this talk it will be presented a predicate abstraction and refinement-based algorithm for software verification that is designed for the distributed execution on compute nodes that communicate via message passing, as found in today's computer clusters. A successful adaptation of predicate abstraction and refinement from sequential to distributed setting needs to address challenges imposed by the inherent non-determinism present in distributed computing environments. In fact, our experiments show that up to an order of magnitude variation of the running time is common when a naive distribution scheme is applied, often resulting in significantly worse running time than the non-distributed version. It will be presented an algorithm that overcomes this pitfall by making deterministic the counterexample selection in spite of the distribution, and still efficiently exploits distributed computational resources. Joint work with Andrey Rybalchenko (TU Munich).

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
The program and more details are available here.
