CFP with a New Tool Track at ATVA 2008


                           ATVA 2008 


                 Sixth International Symposium on 

        Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis 




              Seoul, South Korea, October 20-23, 2008 

!!!! NEWS: A new addition of a tool demonstration paper track  !!!! 



    Submission of papers (firm):    May  5, 2008 

    Notification of authors    :    June 30, 2008 

    Camera-ready papers        :    July 28, 2008 



    Theory track     : Natarajan Shankar (SRI) 

    Software track   : Sriram. K. Rajamani (Microsoft) 

    Application track: TBA 





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.  




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  

  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.  




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.  

Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not allowed.  


From 2008, ATVA accepts two types of contributions: RESEARCH PAPERS 

and TOOL DEMONSTRATION PAPERS.  Both types of contributions will appear 

in the proceedings and have oral presentations during the conference. 


Research papers: 

Research papers should contain original research, and sufficient detail 

to assess the merits and relevance of the contribution.  Submissions 

reporting on industrial case studies are welcome, and should describe 

detailed weaknesses and strength in sufficient depth.  Submitted research 

papers should be no more than 15 pages long.  


Tool demonstration papers: 

Tool demonstration papers present tools based on aforementioned 

technologies or fall into the above application areas.  Tool demonstration 

papers allow researchers to stress the technical and practical side, 

illustrating how one can apply the theoretic contributions in practice.  

Submitted tool demonstration papers should be no more than 6 pages long.
