Present CFP : 2019

The 18th IEEE International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (SCAM 2019) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on theory, techniques, and applications that concern analysis and/or manipulation of the source code of software systems. The term "source code" refers to any fully executable description of a software system, such as machine code, (very) high-level languages, and executable graphical representations of systems. The term "analysis" refers to any (semi-)automated procedure that yields insight into source code, while "manipulation" refers to any automated or semi-automated procedure that takes and returns source code. While much attention in the wider software engineering community is directed towards other aspects of systems development and evolution, such as specification, design, and requirements engineering, it is the source code that contains the only precise description of the behavior of a system. Hence, the analysis and manipulation of source code remains a pressing concern for which SCAM 2019 solicits high quality paper submissions.

Covered Topics and Paper Formats
We welcome submission of papers that describe original and significant work in the field of source code analysis and manipulation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

program transformation and refactoring
static and dynamic analysis
natural language analysis of source code artifacts
repository, revision, and change analysis
source level metrics
decompilation
bug location and prediction
security vulnerability analysis
source-level testing and verification
clone detection
concern, concept, and feature localization and mining
program comprehension
bad smell detection
abstract interpretation
program slicing
source level optimization
energy efficient source code
SCAM explicitly solicits results from any theoretical or technological domain that can be applied to these and similar topics. Submitted papers should describe original, unpublished, and significant work and must not have been previously accepted for publication nor be concurrently submitted for review in another journal, book, conference, or workshop. Papers must not exceed 10 pages including all text, references, appendices and figures and must conform to the IEEE proceedings paper format guidelines and must be clearly marked as a research paper. Templates in Latex and Word are available on IEEE's website. All submissions must be in English.

The papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair. Submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee, judging the paper on its novelty, quality, importance, evaluation, and scientific rigor. If the paper is accepted, at least one author must attend the conference and present the paper.

SCAM 2019 also features an engineering paper track for papers that report on the design and implementation of tools for source code analysis and manipulation.

Proceedings
All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings which will be available through the IEEE Digital Library.

Special Issue
A set of the best papers from SCAM 2019 will be invited to be considered for revision, extension, and publication in a special issue of Journal of Systems and Software.

Important Dates for Research Papers
