CALL FOR PAPERS: "Satisfiability Modulo Theories", 14-15 July 2011, Utah, USA

SMT Workshop 2011 9th International Workshop on Satisfiability Modulo Theories (affiliated with CAV'11 Snowbird, Utah, USA)


Determining the satisfiability of first-order formulas modulo background theories, known as the Satisfiability Modulo Theories (SMT) problem, has proved to be an enabling technology for verification, synthesis, test generation, compiler optimization, scheduling, and other areas. The success of SMT techniques depends on the development of both domain-specific decision procedures for each background 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, usually leveraging Boolean satisfiability (SAT) solvers. These ingredients together make SMT techniques well-suited for use in larger automated reasoning and verification efforts.

Aims and Scope
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and users of SMT tools and techniques. Relevant topics include but are not limited to:

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

Papers on pragmatic aspects of implementing and using SMT tools, as well as novel applications of SMT, are especially encouraged.

Important dates
* Submission deadline                  -  April 15, 2011
* Notification of acceptance/rejection -  May 20, 2011
* Final version due                    -  June 10, 2011
* Workshop:                            -  July 14-15, 2011

Paper submission and Proceedings

Three categories of submissions are invited:

* 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. Given the informal style of the workshop, papers describing
   work in progress, with sufficient detail to assess the contribution,
   are also welcome.

* Extended abstracts: contain preliminary reports 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.

* 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, letter-size paper, standard margins. Technical details may be included in an appendix to be read at the reviewers' discretion.
