We are happy to announce that RWTH's MOVES group, headed by Prof. Joost-Pieter Katoen, will receive funding from the European Research Council (ERC) for a Proof of Concept Grant to improve Caesar.

Caesar was originally built in part through FRAPPANT, the 2018 ERC Advanced Grant "Formal Reasoning about Probabilistic Programs: Breaking New Ground for Automation". The new ERC Proof of Concept research proposal "A Deductive Verifier for Probabilistic Programs (VERIPROB)" is about applying knowledge from FRAPPANT to build Caesar into a prototype that can be made use of by industry "to turn science into practice".
