The usage of the term program verification has expanded well beyond its original meaning. As research in this space advances and expands, is it time to reconsider the term?
Although the computer science community successfully harnessed exponential increases in computer performance to drive societal and economic change, the exponential growth in publications is proving harder to accommodate. To gain a deeper understanding of publication growth and inform how the computer science community should handle this growth, we analyze publication practices from several perspectives.
