Final CALL FOR PAPERS =====================
8th International Symposium on Automated Technology for Verification and
Analysis (ATVA 2010)
21 - 24 September 2010, SINGAPORE
Final DEADLINE extended to:
Abstract Due : 8 April 2010 (23:59 Apia-time)
Full Paper Due : 15 April 2010 (23:59 Apia-time)
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), Seoul (2008) and Macao (2009). The proceedings of ATVA
2010 will be published by Springer as a volume in the LNCS series.
The scope of interest is intentionally kept broad; it includes:
Theories 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 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 2010 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 merits 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.
