[PVS] ATVA 2009: 2nd Call for Papers



Our apology for possible multiple copies.
 
======================================

                      ATVA 2009 Call for Papers
                  7th International Symposium on
      Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis
            14-16 October 2009, Macao SAR, China
                [http://www.iist.unu.edu/atva09]
 
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 previous six events were held in Taiwan (2003-5), Beijing (2006),
Tokyo (2007) and Seoul (2008). The proceedings of ATVA 2009 will be
published by Springer as a volume in the LNCS series.
 
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 of (timed
    and hybrid) automata, process calculi, Petri-nets, concurrency
    theory, compositionality, model-checking, automated theorem
    proving, synthesis, performance analysis,
    correctness-by-construction, infinite state systems, abstract
    interpretation, decidability results, parametric analysis or
    synthesis.
 
 -- Applications of theory in engineering methods and other particular
    domains and handling of practical problems occurring in tools,
    such as analysis and verification tools, synthesis tools, model
    transformation tools. Techniques of reducing complexity of
    verification by abstraction, improved representations. Methods and
    tools in handling user level notations, such as UML. Practice in
    industrial 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. We are interested both
in algorithms and in methods and tools for integrating formal
approaches into industrial practice.
 
Submissions: Submissions to the conference must not have been
published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All
submissions will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution
to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the
conference.  ATVA 2009 calls for two types of contributions: RESEARCH
PAPERS and TOOL DEMONSTRATION PAPERS.  Both types of contributions
will appear in the proceedings and have oral presentations at the
conference. Papers should be written in English in LNCS format.
 
Research papers:
Research papers should contain original research, and sufficient
detail to assess the mer its and relevance of the
contribution. Submissions reporting on industrial case studies are
welcome, and should describe both strengths and weaknesses in
sufficient depth.  Research papers should be no more than 15 pages.
 
Tool demonstration papers:
Tool demonstration papers present tools based on aforementioned
theories 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. Tool demonstration papers should be no more than 6 pages.
 
Submission Procedure: Further information and instruction about
submission can be found at the conference website
http://www.iist.unu.edu/atva09.

Important Dates:
paper submission: 1 May 2009,
notification of acceptance: 15 June 2009,
final copy for proceedings: 29 June 2009,
ATVA 2009: 14-16 October 2009.
