CFP: ATVA 2008: Submission deadline approaching


                            ATVA 2008 


                 Sixth International Symposium on 

        Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis 




                Seoul, South Korea, October 20-23, 2008 

!!!!   NOTE: 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 : David L. Dill (Stanford) 







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 (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. 





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.
