DeepSpec
 
The Science of Deep Specification

DeepSpec is an Expedition in Computing funded by the National Science Foundation.

We focus on the specification and verification of full functional correctness of software and hardware.

Research

We have several major research projects, and our ambitious goal is to connect them at specification interfaces to prove end-to-end correctness of whole systems.

Specifications and components

Education

To deliver secure and reliable products, the software industry of the future needs engineers trained in specification and verification. We'll produce that curriculum.
