Rodin Workshop 2012
Rodin User and Developer Workshop, 27-29 February 2012, Fontainebleau, France
Event-B is a formal method for system-level modelling and analysis. The Rodin Platform is an Eclipse-based toolset for Event-B that provides effective support for modelling and automated proof. The platform is open source and is further extendable with plug-ins. A range of plug-ins have already been developed including ones that support animation, model checking, decomposition, modularisation, code generation and UML-B. The first Rodin User and Developer Workshop was held in July 2009 at the University of Southampton while the second took place at the University of Düsseldorf in September 21-23, 2010. The 2012 workshop was part of the DEPLOY Federated Event hosted by the LACL laboratory at IUT Sénart-Fontainebleau.
While much of the development and use of Rodin takes place within the EU FP7 DEPLOY Project, there is a growing group of users and plug-in developers outside of DEPLOY. The purpose of this workshop was to bring together existing and potential users and developers of the Rodin toolset and to foster a broader community of Rodin users and developers.
For Rodin users the workshop provided an opportunity to share tool experiences and to gain an understanding of on-going tool developments. For plug-in developers the workshop provided an opportunity to showcase their tools and to achieve better coordination of tool development effort.
The format was presentations together with plenty of time for discussion. On Day 1 a Developer Tutorial was held while Days 2 and 3 were devoted to tool usage and tool developments. The workshop was followed by an open DEPLOY Industry Day.
Rodin Developer Tutorial Programme February 27th
The Rodin Tutorial will take place on February 27th and last the whole day.
- How to use the Rodin Theory Plug-in (Issam Maamria, University of Southampton), 1 Hour
- How to use the Rodin prover API to add external provers:
- SMT Solvers integration (Systerel), 30 mins
- Isabelle/HOL integration. (Matthias Schmalz, ETH Zurich), 30 mins
- How to create and use custom/parameterized proof tactics (Systerel/Jean-Raymond Abrial), 30 mins
- How to integrate plug-ins with ProB (University of Düsseldorf), 30 mins
In the afternoon, parallel master classes for smaller groups of interested people will be provided on these topics. Each master class will last 1h30.
- The master class on custom/parameterized proof tactics creation/use will be provided by Jean-Raymond Abrial assisted by Nicolas Beauger and Thomas Muller.
- The master class on customizing the Isabelle plug-in will be given by Matthias Schmalz.
- The master class on Theory Plug-in will be provided by Issam Maamria.
- The master class on plug-in integration with ProB will be given by Jens Bendisposto.
