Name: Sylvain Hallé

Bio: I am currently the Canada Research Chair in Software Specification, Testing and Verification at Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Canada, and head of the Formal Computer Science Laboratory (LIF). My research concentrates on automated verification. Current projects include the runtime monitoring of video games, the detection of configuration errors in network devices and the enforcement of navigation sequences in web applications. I also do a bit of databases and computer security. I applied by knowledge in development or consulting projects with Ericsson Canada, Hydro-Québec, Solutions TLM, BlooBuzz, Novum Solutions and Cisco Systems. Among recent distinctions I received, I earned five Best Paper Awards in international conferences. I am a double recipient of the Governor General’s Academic Medal. I am also a Senior Member of both IEEE and ACM.
