The "Marktoberdorf Summer School"
is a two weeks' course for young computer scientists and mathematicians working
in the field of formal software and systems development. The course is
designed to give an in-depth presentation of state-of-the-art topics, to promote
international contacts and collaboration and to team up leading researchers and
Scientific foundations provide models that enable us to capture application domains and their requirements, but also to understand the structure and working of programs. Within the last decade, program verifiers have been applied to critical applications, software model checking has made strides into industrial applications, and a number of research tools have been built using automatic program-verification technology. Formal methods for increasing the reliability and security of software follow two different approaches: the language-based and the logic-based. The objective of the Summer School 2009 is to present the state-of-the-art in these two approaches and their common semantic foundation. We have selected researchers with exceptional expertise and also well known for teaching and lively interaction with students on how to meet these challenges.

Previous training and experience in computer science as well
as a solid background in mathematics are indispensable. The directors of the
Summer School are allowed to award only a limited number of participants.

The Summer School will be held at Marktoberdorf, a small town about 100 km
southwest of Munich. All students will be accommodated in the boarding house
(double rooms) of the local high school, Gymnasium Marktoberdorf. Due to the
limited number of rooms accompanying persons cannot be lodged in the boarding
All applicants will receive notice by May 30, 2009. Every person who is admitted to attend the Summer School as participant has to pay Euro 670 for the living expenses (covering accommodation, breakfast, lunch, dinner, refreshments, and social events) and Euro 840 for the participation fee (including working material - to be distributed upon arrival - and a copy of the final proceedings). An invoice to the respective amount will be sent to all participants together with a letter of acceptance. Payment of the invoice is due in advance and must be remitted to our bank account by June 30 at the very latest.
It is hoped that you can obtain support for your travel and living expenses and for the participation fee from your institution or other sources in your own country. However, should this not be possible, limited funds are available for those participants who will need financial aid to cover a part of their costs. If a support for travel expenses is granted, the amount will be reimbursed to the participant during the Summer School at Marktoberdorf.
