Present CFP : 2018

The 18th IEEE International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and
Manipulation (SCAM 2018) 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 2018 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describe original, unpublished, and significant work and must not have been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
(https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html)
All submissions must be in English.

The papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair.
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=scam2018) Submission will be reviewed
by at least three members of the program committee
(http://www.ieee-scam.org/2018/#progcom), 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 2018 also features an engineering paper track
(http://www.ieee-scam.org/2018/#engcall) 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 2018 will be invited to be considered for
revision, extension, and publication in a special issue of Journal of Systems
and Software.

- Abstract Deadline: June 8, 2018
- Paper Deadline: June 15, 2018
- Notification: July 9, 2018
- Camera Ready Deadline: Aug 13, 2018
