Call for Papers

                           H A V   2 0 0 7
                    Heap Analysis and Verification
                  A satellite workshop of ETAPS 2007

                  Braga, Portugal -- March 25, 2007

               http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~msagiv/hav.html


-- Aim and Scope

   Accurate and efficient expression, discovery, and verification of
   the structure of program heap memory is an active research area.
   Many problems remain open, and therefore many programs remain
   unverified. We are seeing advances however: Among these are
   exciting new techniques for analysis and verification of
   concurrently accessed heap memory, new techniques for
   interprocedural and modular analysis and verification, and great
   strides increasing the range of practically applicable analysis and
   Verification techniques.

   The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers to
   exchange and develop new ideas in all aspects of formal analysis
   and verification for heaps.  Submissions are invited from across
   the full spectrum of basic theoretical work through to applied
   practical work.


-- Topics of Interest

   Topics of particular interest (non-exclusively) include:

   - shape analysis
   - abstract interpretation, program analysis, and model checking for
     heap programs
   - logics and type systems for expressing or verifying heap properties
   - automation and mechanization of such logics
   - graph and other models of the heap
   - comparisons of existing techniques and tools
   - test cases and experimental results


-- Proceedings

   A formal proceedings will not be published.
