Call For Papers

SOAP 2023 aims to bring together the members of the program analysis community to share new developments and shape new innovations in program analysis.

For SOAP 2023, we invite contributions from researchers and practitioners working with program analysis. We are particularly interested in exciting analysis framework ideas, application of existing static analysis techniques to industrial software, adoption of static analysis in software engineering practices (such as DevOps), innovative designs, and analysis techniques, including preliminary results or work in progress. We will also focus on the state of the practice for program analysis by encouraging submissions by industrial participants, including tool demonstration submissions. The workshop agenda will continue its tradition of lively discussions on extensions of existing frameworks, the development of novel analyses and tools, and how program analysis is used in real-world scenarios.
Types of submissions

Possible submissions include, but are not limited to:

* A report on a novel implementation of a program analysis, with a focus on practical details or optimization techniques for obtaining precision and performance.
* A new research tool, data, and other artifacts, that showcase early implementations of novel program analysis concepts, as well as mature prototypes.
* A description of a novel analysis component, for example, front-ends or abstract domains.
* A report describing an innovative tool built on top of an existing framework.
* A compelling use case for a feature that is not yet supported by existing analysis tools, with good examples and an informal design of the proposed feature.
* An idea paper proposing the integration of existing program analyses to answer interesting novel questions about programs, for example in IDEs and DevOps practices.
* An experience report on the use of an existing program analysis framework.
* A description of a program analysis tool and screenshots of the main parts of the demo.

Accepted papers will appear in the ACM Digital Library.

Submissions should be four to six-page papers and should be formatted according to the two-column ACM proceedings format. Each reference must list all authors of the paper. The citations should be in numerical style, e.g., [52]. Templates for ACM format are available for Microsoft Word and LaTeX at The preprint template should be set to use 10pt font and ‘numbers’ to ensure numerical style citations, that is \documentclass[10pt, numbers]{sigplanconf}.

The Program Committee of SOAP 2023 will invite a selection of accepted papers to submit extended versions to a special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT).
