SCAM 2012 : 12th IEEE Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation
Conference Series : Source Code Analysis and Manipulation
Call For Papers
The aim of this working conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on theory, techniques and applications, which concern analysis and/or manipulation of the source code of computer systems. While much attention in the wider software engineering community is properly directed towards other aspects of systems development and evolution, such as specification, design and requirements engineering, it is the source code that contains the only precise description of the behavior of the system. The analysis and manipulation of source code thus remains a pressing concern.
COVERED TOPICS AND PAPER FORMATS:
We welcome submission of papers that describe original and significant work in the field of source code analysis and manipulation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
source level software metrics
source level testing and verification
source level optimization
SCAM explicitly solicits results from any theoretical or technological domain that can be applied to these and similar topics.
SCAM also welcomes short tool demonstration papers that introduce tools for source code analysis and manipulation. Tool papers should describe a concrete source code analysis or manipulation tool that is available for download and general use and can be run and demonstrated at the conference.
Submitted papers should not be longer than 10 pages (6 pages for tool demonstration papers). All papers submitted should follow IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines. The papers should be submitted electronically in PDF form via the conference web site. Submitted papers must not have been previously published or concurrently submitted for consideration elsewhere.
All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings which will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Best papers from SCAM 2012 will be considered for revision, extension, and publication in a special issue.
