Call For Papers

13th International Conference on
Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation (VMCAI)
January 2012
Collocated with POPL 2012


VMCAI provides a forum for researchers from the communities of Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation, facilitating interaction, cross-fertilization, and advancement of hybrid methods that combine the three areas.

The program of VMCAI'12 will consist of invited lectures, tutorials, refereed research papers, and tool demonstrations. Research contributions can report new results as well as experimental evaluations and comparisons of existing techniques. Topics include, but are not limited to:

* program verification
* model checking
* abstract interpretation
* static analysis
* deductive methods
* program certification
* debugging techniques
* abstract domains
* type systems
* optimization

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic and object-oriented programming. Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with refereed proceedings. Past proceedings have been published by Springer Verlag as volumes in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, as will be the case this year.
