 pdf-format:

### Abstract

{\em Software systems} are present at the very heart of many daily-life applications, such as in communication (telephony and mobile Internet), transportation, energy, health, etc. Such systems are very often {\em critical}\/ in the sense that their failure can have considerable human/economical consequences. In order to ensure reliability, development methods must include {\em algorithmic analysis and verification techniques} which allow (1) to detect automatically defective behaviors of the system and to analyze their source, and (2) to check that every component of a system conforms to its specification. Two important and quite active research communities are particularly concerned with this challenge: the community of computer-aided verification, especially the community of (infinite-state) model checking, and the community of static program analysis. From 19.02.06 to 24.02.06, 51 researchers from these two communities met at the Dagstuhl Seminar 06081 Software Verification: Infinite-State Model Checking and Static Program Analysis'' in order to improve and deepen the mutual understanding of the developed technologies and to trigger collaborations. During the seminar which was held at the International Conference and Research Center (IBFI), Schloss Dagstuhl, several participants presented their current research, and ongoing work and open problems were discussed. Abstracts of the presentations given during the seminar are put together in this paper.
