Annual International Termination Competition

During the 90's a number of new, powerful termination methods was developed. Thus, at the the beginning of the millennium many research groups started to develop tools for fully-automated termination analysis.

After a tool demonstration at the 2003 Workshop on Termination in Valencia, the community decided to install an annual termination competition to spur the development of tools and new termination techniques.

From 2004 till 2007, the competition organizer was Claude Marché, Paris. From 2008 to 2013 the competition was run by René Thiemann, Innsbruck. In 2014, we moved to the Star Exec platform (at U Iowa).
