The laboratory aims at intensifying the basic and applied research in the area of parallel and distributed methods for the specification, modelling, analysis, and verification of parallel and distributed systems. The mainspring of the research is the development and application of theories which underlie mentioned system development activities. The objective is to bridge the gap between academics and industry by exploiting academically well-founded formal methods and by promoting theory formation in the academic sense on the major issues of selected industrial areas. We want to come-up with practical solutions and tooling to address the needs found in current and innovative development industry projects.


DIVINE is a modern software model checker. Based on the LLVM toolchain, it can verify programs written in C and C++. The verification core is built on a foundation of high-performance algorithms and data structures, and is accompanied by a set of libraries which provide coverage of the C and C++ standard libraries, thread support and a large subset of POSIX APIs. DIVINE can use both explicit and symbolic methods to represent the state space. Finally, it allows verification of programs under the x86-64 memory model.
RoFI is an open-hardware platform of modular robots. The platform is designed for building larger robots (RoFIBots) from a small number of module types. The project deals both with hardware realization and software solutions. RoFI aims for bridging the gap between theory (control, synthesis, and reconfiguration) and practice (communication protocols, software, and hardware implementation).
