ASTEC - Advanced Software Technology

UPPAAL 1995 - 2000

In the spring of 1995, me and my family had the pleasure of spending one half year sabbatical at DoCS, Uppsala University. The visit resulted in an almost instant 'chemical' reaction: within 2 months we were able to go public with the very first version of the real-time verification tool UPPAAL.

In the following years, the development of UPPAAL continued with even greater strength as a collaborative research effort between BRICS, Aalborg, and DoCS, Uppsala, involving several mutual visits of researchers and students, and giving rise to several publications and case-studies. Today, I think it is fair to say, UPPAAL has been established as one of the most efficient and accessible verification tools for real-time systems.

In this talk I will offer my personal version of the story behind almost 5 years of UPPAAL-development, starting from the dark pre-UPPAAL period, and offering some possible avenues for what seems to be a bright future for UPPAAL.
