HWMCC'10 will be the next competition.

HWMCC'08 follows HWMCC'07 as the second competitive event for hardware model checkers.

It was organized as a satellite event to the 20th International Conference on Computer Aided Verification (CAV 2008).


Benchmarks are available as well.

The results of the competition were presented at CAV'08 (slides).


Our goal is to keep up the driving force in improving model checkers.

We also want to motivate implementors to present their work to a broader audience.

Last but not least the competition collects realistic benchmarks and makes them available.


Researchers from both academia and industry had been invited to submit solvers and benchmarks.

In the competition all entrants had to solve a set of benchmark instances in AIGER format.
