Present CFP : 2010


Industrial-strength software analysis and verification has advanced in recent years through the introduction of model checking, automated and interactive theorem proving, and static analysis techniques, as well as correctness by design, correctness by contract, and model-driven development. However, many techniques are working under restrictive assumptions that are invalidated by complex embedded systems software such as operating system kernels, low-level device drivers, or microcontroller code.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and developers from both academia and industry who are facing real software and real problems with the goal of finding real, applicable solutions. By "real" we mean problems such as time-to-market or reliability that the industry is facing. A real solution is one that is applicable to the problem in industry and not one that only applies to an abstract, academic, toy version of it. In this workshop we will discuss software analysis and development techniques and tools; this forum will serve as a platform to discuss open problems and future challenges in dealing with existing and upcoming systems-level code.

This will be a 1.5-day workshop, beginning on the afternoon of October 6, 2010, and running through October 7, 2010.


Topics include but are not limited to:

* Model checking
* Automated and interactive theorem proving
* Static analysis
* Automated testing
* Model-driven development
* Embedded systems development
* Programming languages
* Verifying compilers
* Software certification
* Software tools
* Experience reports

Submission Instructions

Interested speakers should register their papers and submit their abstracts by May 28, 2010, and should submit their papers by June 4, 2010, both via the Web submission form, which will be available here soon. All papers will be subject to peer review under conference standards. Experience reports and papers on work in progress are welcome as long as there is a clear contribution. Submissions must be in PDF format and must be no longer than nine 8.5" x 11" pages, including figures, tables, and references, formatted in two columns, using 10 point type on 12 point (single-spaced) leading, with the text block being no more than 6.5" wide by 9" deep.

All papers will be available online to registered attendees before the workshop. If your accepted paper should not be published prior to the event, please notify The papers will be available online to everyone beginning on the first day of the workshop, October 6, 2010.

Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the USENIX SSV '10 Web site; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy for details. Note, however, that we expect that many papers accepted for SSV '10 will eventually be extended as full papers suitable for presentation at future conferences. Questions? Contact your program co-chairs,, or the USENIX office,
