CONFERENCE SCOPE 

ACL2 2007 is the major technical forum for users of the ACL2 theorem
proving system and is the seventh in a series of workshops that occur
approximately every 18 months. ACL2 is an industrial-strength
automated reasoning system that is part of the Boyer-Moore family of
theorem provers, for which its authors received the 2005 ACM Software
System Award. ACL2 2007 is hosted by FMCAD. We invite papers on any
topics related to ACL2, and we encourage submission of papers related
to other theorem provers or formal methods that can be contributed to
the ACL2 community.  Suggested topics include but are not limited by 
the following:
    * software or hardware verification with the theorem prover,
    * formalizations of mathematics in ACL2,
    * new libraries, tools, and interfaces for ACL2,
    * experiences with ACL2 in the classroom,
    * reports of and proposals for improvements of ACL2,
    * comparisons with other theorem provers
    * comparisons with other programming or specification languages,
    * challenge problems and their solutions, 
    * foundational issues related to ACL2, and
    * implementations connecting ACL2 with other systems. 

PAPER SUBMISSIONS 

Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format, as directed in
the ACL2 2007 website. Submissions should be prepared in the ACM SIG
Proceeding Templates, available from
http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html. We strongly prefer
submissions in the "LaTeX2e - Strict Adherence to the SIGS Style". 

The ACL2 Workshop accepts both long papers (up to ten pages) and short
papers (up to four pages). Both categories of papers will be fully
refereed. At least one author of each accepted papers must register
for the workshop and give a presentation summarizing the paper's
results. Authors of long papers will have more time to present their
work at the workshop; this is the primary distinction between long and
short papers. One of the main advantages of the ACL2 Workshop is that
attendees are already knowledgeable about ACL2, its syntax, its basic
commands, and the art of writing models in it. So authors may assume
that readers have this familiarity. We expect to provide workshop
proceedings and to include these proceedings in the ACM digital
library. 

Many papers presented at the workshop will describe interactions with
the theorem prover. We strongly encourage authors of such papers to
provide ACL2 script files (aka "books") along with instructions for
using these books in ACL2. Such supporting materials should follow the
guidelines at http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/moore/acl2/books/index.html. 
For accepted papers, these books will be mirrored on the ACL2 home page
and included in future ACL2 distributions.
