High integrity software must not only meet correctness and performance criteria but also satisfy stringent safety and/or security demands, typically entailing certification against a relevant standard. A significant factor affecting whether and how such requirements are met is the chosen language technology and its supporting tools: not just the programming language(s) but also languages for expressing specifications, program properties, domain models, and other attributes of the software or overall system.
HILT 2013 will provide a forum for experts from academia/research, industry, and government to present the latest findings in designing, implementing, and using language technology for high integrity software. To this end we are soliciting technical papers, experience reports (including experience in teaching), and tutorial proposals on a broad range of relevant topics.
You may send submissions in MS Word, PDF, or text format. Please submit your papers via EasyChair at
The conference will feature keynote and invited presentations from leading experts in language technology and high-integrity systems.
