Invited talks

We are pleased to announce the following invited speakers:

Rafael Dueire Lins ( Departamento de Eletrônica e Sistemas, CTG, Universidade Federal de Pernambuco, Recife, PE, Brazil
FME talk.
New Algorithms and Applications of Cyclic Reference Counting.
Reference counting is a simple and efficient way of performing graph transformation and management in which each graph node stores the number of pointers to it. Graph operations are performed in such a way to keep this property invariant. The major drawback of standard reference counting is its inability to work with cyclic structures, which appear ever so often in real applications. The author of this talk developed a series of cyclic reference counting algorithms whose applicability goes far beyond the implementation of garbage collectors in programming languages. This paper presents the milestones in the history of cyclic reference counting followed by two new applications: the consistent management of Web pages in the Internet and the correctly handling of processes in clusters and grids.

Idioms of Logical Modelling (Invited talk 3)
Most modeling languages embody a particular idiom: the state / invariant / operations idiom for VDM and Z; the variable-update/temporal-logic idiom for SMV and Murphi; the imperative-programming idiom for Promela and Zing; and so on. Fixing an idiom makes tools easier to build, and helps novice modellers. But it also makes the language less flexible.
Alloy is a modelling language that was designed, in contrast, to support multiple idioms. Its core is a simple but expressive relational logic, whose semantics consists of a set of bindings of relations to global variables. In other words, an Alloy model is a constraint, and its meaning is a set of graphs with labelled edges of varying arity. The Alloy Analyzer is a constraint solver that can find a graph satisfying a given constraint.
A variety of idioms can be readily expressed in Alloy, and analyzed using the Alloy Analyzer. You can structure the state as a global state variable with multiple components, or follow an object-oriented style, where the state is collection of objects, each with components whose values vary of time. You can express and analyze individual operation executions, using the inductive approach of languages like Z, or introduce traces and check them against linear temporal logic properties. Frame conditions can be written as conventional equalities in each operation, or in the style invented by Reiter.
In my talk, I'll explain the basics of Alloy, show how to express a variety of idioms, and describe some case studies using these idioms, including most recently an analysis by Tahina Ramanandro of the Mondex electronic purse (developed by NatWest Bank, and originally modelled in Z by Susan Stepney, David Cooper and Jim Woodcock).
