CFP: Workshop on Satisfiability Modulo Theories

 SMT Workshop '09
    7th International Workshop on Satisfiability Modulo Theories

             Affiliated with CADE-22, McGill University,
                  Montreal, Canada, 2-3 August 2009

                      ---CALL FOR PAPERS---



Deciding the satisfiability of first-order formulas modulo background
theories, known as the Satisfiability Modulo Theories (SMT) problem,
has proved to be useful in verification, compiler optimization,
scheduling, and other areas.

The success of SMT techniques depends on the development of both
domain-specific decision procedures for each concrete theory
(e.g. linear arithmetic, the theory of arrays, or the theory of
bit-vectors) and combination methods that allow one to obtain more
versatile SMT tools. These two ingredients together make SMT
techniques well-suited for use in larger automated reasoning and
formal verification efforts.

Aims and Scope

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and users of
SMT tools and techniques. Continuing with the PDPAR tradition, we
especially encourage submission of papers focused on pragmatic
aspects. Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

* New decision procedures and new theories of interest
* Combination of decision procedures
* Novel implementation techniques
* Benchmarks and evaluation methodologies
* Applications and case studies
* Theoretical results

Important dates

Submission deadline                  : May 22, 2009
Notification of acceptance/rejection : June 22, 2009
Final version due                    : June 29, 2009
Workshop                             : August 2-3, 2009

Paper Submission and Proceedings

* Extended abstracts: contain preliminary report of work in progress.
 These will be judged based on the expected level of interest for the
 SMT community. They will be included in the informal proceedings.

* Original papers: contain original research (simultaneous submissions
 are not allowed) and sufficient detail to assess the merits and
 relevance of the submission. For papers reporting experimental
 results, authors are strongly encouraged to make their data available.
 Work in progress is welcome. Papers in this category will be included
 in the informal proceedings and published after the workshop in the
 ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ISBN 978-1-60558-484-3).

* Presentation-only papers: describe work recently published or
 submitted and will not be included in the proceedings. We see this
 as a way to provide additional access to important developments that
 SMT Workshop attendees may be unaware of.

Papers in all three categories will be peer-reviewed. Papers should not
exceed 10 pages (Postscript or PDF) and should be written in LaTeX,
11pt, one column, a4paper, standard margins. Technical details may be
included in an appendix to be read at the reviewers' discretion. Full
submission guidelines are at the workshop web page.
