Conference Series : Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis
Call For Papers
The 19th International Symposium on Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis (ATVA 2021), 18 - 22 Oct 2021, Gold Coast, Australia.
ATVA 2021 is the 19th in a series of symposia aimed at bringing together academics, industrial researchers and practitioners in the area of theoretical and practical aspects of automated analysis, synthesis, and verification of hardware, software, and machine learning (ML) systems. ATVA is a CORE Rank A conference.
Full paper submissions due: 9 April (AOE) 2021
Notification: 4 June 2021
Camera-ready due: 4 July 2021
ATVA solicits high-quality submissions in the following suggestive list of topics:
Formalisms for modelling hardware, software and embedded systems
Testing, analysis, verification and security of machine learning systems
Specification and verification of finite-state, infinite-state and parameterised system
Program analysis and software verification
Analysis and verification of hardware circuits, system-on-chip and embedded systems
Analysis of real-time, hybrid, priced, weighted and probabilistic systems
Deductive, algorithmic, compositional, and abstraction/refinement techniques for analysis and verification
Analytical techniques for safety, security, and dependability
Testing and runtime analysis based on verification technology
Analysis and verification of parallel and concurrent systems
Verification in industrial practice
Synthesis for hardware and software systems
Applications and case studies
Automated tool support
Analysis and verification of Machine Learning and AI systems
Submission and Publication:
ATVA welcomes submissions in the following two categories:
1) Regular research papers (16 pages, including references)
2) Tool papers (6 pages, including references)
Submissions must be in Springer's LNCS format. Additional material may be placed in an appendix, to be read at the discretion of the reviewers and to be omitted in the final version. Formatting style files and further guidelines for formatting can be found at the Springer website. Tool papers must include information about a URL from where the tool can be downloaded or accessed online for evaluation. The URL must also contain a set of examples and a user manual that describes the usage of the tool through examples. In case the tool needs to be downloaded and installed, the URL must contain instructions for installation of the tool on Linux/Windows/MacOS.
Accepted papers in both categories will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register and present the paper at the conference.
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines (ftp://ftp.springernature.com/cs-proceeding/svproc/guidelines/Springer_Guidelines_for_Authors_of_Proceedings_CS.pdf) and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
Papers must be submitted through EasyChair.
