Call For Papers

VSTTE 2012
Verified Software: Theories, Tools and Experiments
January 28-29, 2012
Philadelphia, USA
(co-located with POPL)

The Fourth International Conference on Verified Software: Theories, Tools, and Experiments will take place on January 28-29, 2012. The focus of the conference is the development of systematic methods for specifying, building, and verifying software. The goal of this conference is to advance the state of the art through the interaction of theory development, tool evolution, and experimental validation. Historically, the conference came out of the Verified Software Initiative (VSI), a cooperative, international initiative directed at the scientific challenges of large-scale software verification. The inaugral VSTTE conference was held at ETH Zurich in October 2005. Starting in 2008, the conference became a biennial event: VSTTE 2008 was held in Toronto, and VSTTE 2010 was held in Edinburgh.

Topics of interest include:

Specification and verification techniques
Tool support for specification languages
Tool for various design methodologies
Tool integration and plug-ins
Automation in formal verification
Tool comparisons and benchmark repositories
Combination of tools and techniques (e.g. formal vs. semiformal, software specification vs. engineering techniques)
Customizing tools for particular applications
Challenge problems
Refinement methodologies
Requirements modeling
Specification languages
Specification/verification case-studies
Software design methods
Program logic


Submitted research papers and system descriptions must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Research paper submissions are limited to 15 proceedings pages in LNCS format and must include a cogent and self-contained description of the ideas, methods and results, together with a comparison to existing work. System descriptions are also limited to 15 proceedings pages in LNCS format. Authors are encouraged to submit work in progress, particularly if the work involves collaboration, theory unification, and tool integration. Papers can be submitted at

Submissions that arrive late, are not in the proper format, or are too long will not be considered. The proceedings of VSTTE 2012 will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Authors of accepted papers will be requested to sign a form transferring copyright of their contribution to Springer-Verlag.
