INTRODUCTION
============
 
ATVA 2007 is the fifth in the series of symposia on Automated
Technology for Verification and Analysis. The purpose of ATVA is to
promote research on theoretical and practical aspects of automated
analysis, verification and synthesis in East Asia by providing a forum
for interaction between the regional and the international research
communities and industry in the field. The first three ATVA symposia
were held in 2003, 2004 and 2005 in Taipei, and ATVA 2006 was held in
Beijing.
 
The Proceedings of ATVA 2007 will be published by Springer as a volume
in the LNCS series. Submissions reporting original contributions are
solicited in all areas of automated verification and analysis.  Please
visit the ATVA 2007 Web site for details not found in this CFP.
 
SCOPE
=====
 
The scope of interest is intentionally kept broad; it includes :
 
 - Theory useful for providing designers with automated support for
obtaining correct software or hardware systems, including both
functional and non functional aspects, such as: theory on (timed)
automata, Petri-nets, concurrency theory, compositionality,
model-checking, automated theorem proving, synthesis, performance
analysis, correctness-by-construction results, infinite state systems,
abstract interpretation, decidability results, parametric analysis or
synthesis. 
 - Applications of theory in engineering methods and particular
domains and handling of practical problems occurring in tools, such
as: analysis and verification tools, synthesis tools, reducing
complexity of verification by abstraction, improved representations,
handling user level notations, such as UML, practice in industry
applications to hardware, software or real-time and embedded
systems. Case studies, illustrating the usefulness of tools or a
particular approach are also welcome. 
 
Theory papers should be motivated by practical problems and
applications should be rooted in sound theory. Of particular interest
are algorithms on one hand and methods and tools for integrating
formal approaches into industrial practice. Special care should be
taken as well to present papers in such a way that they are accessible
not only to specialists, that is, jargon need to be defined and
intuitive interpretation provided for theories.
 
SUBMISSIONS
===========
 
A submitted paper must contain original contributions, clearly written in
English, and include comparison with related work.  The authors are advised
to prepare their manuscripts using the LNCS style.  Each paper should be no
more than 15 pages long and be submitted electronically via the ATVA 2007 Web
site.  Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not allowed.
