 * Compositional approaches to specification and verification
 * Specification, verification, and development of concurrent systems,
   in particular of reactive, real-time, and hybrid systems
 * Abstraction and refinement methods in specification and verification
 * Semantics of specification and programming concepts
 * Logical and algebraic foundations of specification and verification
 * Formalization of high-level requirement analysis and design methods
   such as synchronous languages
 * Design of verification support tools
 * Practical software-engineering issues in using programming concepts
   and methods
