This paper introduces a special section of the STTT journal containing a selection of papers that were presented at the 13th International Workshop Model Checking Software SPIN 2007. We give a brief overview of the field of software model checking with emphasis on topics that are covered by the selected papers. In our focus are some emerging trends like multi-core model checking together with new high-quality model checking tools, as well as subjects that remain challenging virtually since the establishing of the discipline, like partial-order reduction and abstraction.
