ACM SAC SOFTWARE VERIFICATION

The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has gathered scientists from
different computer areas over the past twenty-three years. The forum
represents an opportunity to interact with different communities sharing
an interest in applied computing.
SAC 2009 is sponsored by SIGAPP and will be hosted by the University of
Hawaii at Manoa and Chaminade University of Honolulu.

SOFTWARE VERIFICATION AND TESTING TRACK DESCRIPTION

We invite authors to submit new results in formal  verification and
testing, as well as development of technologies to improve the usability
of formal methods in software engineering.
Also welcome are detailed descriptions of applications of mechanical
verification to large scale software. Possible topics include, but are not
limited to:


- tools and techniques for verification  of large scale software systems
- real world applications and case studies applying software verification
- static and run-time analysis
- abstract interpretation
- model checking
- theorem proving
- correct by construction development
- model-based testing
- analysis methods for dependable systems
- software certification and proof carrying code
