INTRODUCTION 

============ 

  

ATVA 2008 is the sixth 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. ATVA 2006 and 2007 were held in Beijing and Tokyo. 

  

The proceedings of ATVA 2008 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 2008 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 2008 Web site.  Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not allowed.
