MCC’2015 – The Fifth Model Checking Contest
The Model Checking Contest (MCC) is an annual competition between software tools that verify concurrent systems using state-space exploration techniques, either explicit-state or symbolic. The present article provides a comprehensive account of the 2015 edition of the MCC. The principles of the contest are described, together with its underlying software infrastructure. The tools that competed in 2015 are listed and the results of the contest are summarized.
The MCC team heartily thanks all scientists who proposed new models in 2015 and the tool developers for their participation effort. Acknowledgments are also due to the Universities of Rostock, Geneva, Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense, and Pierre & Marie Curie for giving access to the powerful computers needed to operate the contest. We are grateful to Hugues Evrard for proof-reading the present paper.
