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.  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.
