The Sixth International Symposium on Games, Automata, Logics and Formal Verification will take place in Genoa, Italy, from September 21 to 23.

Web page:

The aim of the symposium is to bring together researchers from academia and industry which are actively working in the fields of Games, Automata, Logics, and Formal Verification. The symposium covers an ample spectrum of themes, ranging from theory to applications, and encourages cross-fertilization. Papers focused on formal methods are especially welcome. Authors are invited to submit original research or tool papers on all relevant topics in these areas. Papers discussing new ideas that are at an early stage of development are also welcome.

Topics of Interest

The topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

Automata Theory
Automated Deduction
Computational aspects of Game Theory
Concurrency and Distributed computation
Decision Procedures
Deductive, Compositional, and Abstraction Techniques for Verification
Finite Model Theory
First-order and Higher-order Logics
Formal Languages
Formal Methods for Systems Biology, Hybrid, Embedded, and Mobile Systems
Games and Automata for Verification
Game Semantics
Logical aspects of Computational Complexity
Logics of Programs
Modal and Temporal Logics
Model Checking
Models of Reactive and Real-Time Systems
Program Analysis and Software Verification
Run-time Verification and Testing
Specification and Verification of Finite and Infinite-state Systems Synthesis


The proceedings will be published by Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science. Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit a revised version of their work to an special issue of Acta Informatica. Selected papers from previous editions appeared in special issues of the International Journal of Foundation of Computer Science (GandALF 2010), Theoretical Computer Science (GandALF 2011 and 2012), and Information and Computation (GandALF 2013 and 2014).
