Verification, Interaction and Proofs

First VIP meeting, November 19 - 23, 2018

IRIF, University Paris Diderot, CNRS and INRIA, Paris, France

VIP (Verification, Interaction and Proofs) is a French - Chinese research project involving

  • INRIA Paris, pir2 team at IRIF, Paris
  • State Key Laboratory of Computer Science Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Science, Beijing

Its scientific program is built upon a cross-fertilization of a culture of verification (with automata theory as a main conceptual framework) and a culture of proofs and programs.

Its main themes are

  • Verification (linearizability, verification of data structures, program verification techniques).
  • Complex systems and theories of interaction (general theory of interaction, structural information theory, concurrency, causal models of computation).
  • Deductive methods and formal proofs (bridging finite and infinite proofs, bridging saturation and cut-elimination, readable formal proofs of algorithms).

Our first meeting will take place in Paris, at the IRIF laboratory, University Paris Diderot on November 19 - 23.


Registration is free but mandatory. If you wish to attend, please fill in this form before November 10th, 2018.

For any question or request, please send an email to both organizers Thomas Ehrhard and Jean Krivine.

Social Dinner (November 20th)

The social dinner will take place on a French restaurant located on a Chinese junk Boat on the river Seine. Participation is free for the members of the VIP project and for invited speakers, and is charged 35 euros per additional diners.
