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.
So far, the following competitions have taken place:
- Termination Competition 2004
- Termination Competition 2005
- Termination Competition 2006
- Termination Competition 2007
At the 2007 Workshop on Termination in Paris it was decided to discontinue the annual competitions in favour of an ongoing competition.
The details still have to be worked out. If you are interested, you can contact the TCOC (Termination Competition Organizing Committee).
