SAS 2017

24th Static Analysis Symposium

New York City, NY, August 30th-September 1st, 2017


Static Analysis is widely recognized as a fundamental tool for program verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program understanding, and software maintenance. The series of Static Analysis Symposia has served as the primary venue for the presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area. The 24th International Static Analysis Symposium, SAS 2017, will be held at New York University, New York City, NY, USA. Previous symposia were held in Edinburgh, Saint-Malo, Munich, Seattle, Deauville, Venice, Perpignan, Los Angeles, Valencia, Kongens Lyngby, Seoul, London, Verona, San Diego, Madrid, Paris, Santa Barbara, Pisa, Aachen, Glasgow, and Namur.

The technical program for SAS 2017 will consist of invited lectures and presentations of refereed papers. Contributions are welcomed on all aspects of static analysis, including, but not limited to:
- Abstract domains
- Abstract interpretation
- Automated deduction
- Data flow analysis
- Debugging
- Deductive methods
- Emerging applications
- Model checking
- Program optimization and transformation
- Program synthesis
- Program verification
- Security analysis
- Tool environments and architectures
- Theoretical frameworks
- Type checking

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic, object-oriented, aspect, multi-core, distributed, and GPU programming. Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with refereed proceedings. Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. They should clearly identify what has been accomplished and why it is significant. Paper submissions should not exceed 18 pages in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science LNCS format, excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices. Program Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers must be intelligible without them. Submissions are handled online through easychair:

As in previous years, we are encouraging authors to submit a virtual machine image containing any artifacts and evaluations presented in the paper. The goal of the artifact submissions is to strengthen our field's scientific approach to evaluations and reproducibility of results. The virtual machines will be archived on a permanent Static Analysis Symposium website to provide a record of past experiments and tools, allowing future research to better evaluate and contrast existing work. Artifact submission is optional. We accept only virtual machine images that can be processed with Virtual Box. Details on what to submit and how will be sent to the corresponding authors by mail shortly after the paper submission deadline. The submitted artifacts will be used by the program committee as a secondary evaluation criteria whose sole purpose is to find additional positive arguments for the paper's acceptance. Submissions without artifacts are welcome and will not be penalized.

- Abstract submission: April 14, 2017 (anywhere on earth)
- Full paper submission: April 20, 2017 (anywhere on earth)
- Artifact submission: April 25, 2017 (anywhere on earth)
- Author notification: June 12, 2017
- Final version due: July 5, 2017
- Conference: August 30 - September 1, 2017

The conference will be held in the Forbes Building of the New York University, 60 Fifth Avenue, New York City.

Since 2014, the program committee of each SAS conference selects a paper for the Radhia Cousot Young Researcher Best Paper Award, in memory of Radhia Cousot, and her fundamental contributions to static analysis, as well as being one of the main promoters and organizers of the SAS series of conferences.

Full versions of a selection of accepted papers, to be determined by the program committee, will be invited for submission to Formal Methods in System Design journal.
