Toccata is a research team of the INRIA Saclay - Île-de-France research center, joint with LRI (CNRS and University of Paris-Sud), located in Orsay, France. It was created in September 2012, partly as a refoundation of the former team ProVal. Members of Toccata are also members of the VALS group of LRI.
The general objective of the team is to promote formal specification and computer-assisted proof in the development of software that requires a high assurance of its safety and its correctness with respect to its intended behavior.
