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 

  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. 

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.
