SAS 2013 : Static Analysis Symposium
Conference Series : Static Analysis Symposium
Call For Papers
Static Analysis is increasingly recognized as a fundamental tool for program verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program understanding, and software maintenance. The series of Static Analysis Symposia has served as the primary venue for the presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area. The 20th International Static Analysis Symposium, SAS 2013, will be held in Seattle, WA, USA, co-located with the ACM Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation. Previous symposia were held in Deauville, Venice, Perpignan, Los Angeles, Valencia, Kongens Lyngby, Seoul, London, Verona, San Diego, Madrid, Paris, Santa Barbara, Pisa, Aachen, Glasgow, and Namur.
The technical program for SAS 2013 will consist of invited lectures and presentations of refereed papers. Contributions are welcomed on all aspects of static analysis, including, but not limited to:
Data flow analysis
Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic, object-oriented, aspect, multi-core, distributed, and GPU programming. Survey papers, that present some aspect of the above topics with a new coherence, and application papers, that describe experience with industrial applications, are also welcomed.
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. Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. They should clearly identify what has been accomplished and why it is significant. Paper submissions should not exceed 20 pages in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science LNCS format, excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices. Program committee members are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers must be intelligible without them.
New this year, we are encouraging authors to submit a virtual machine image containing any artifacts and evaluations presented in the paper. The goal of the artifact submissions is to strengthen our field's scientific approach to evaluations and reproducibility of results. The virtual machines will be archived on a permanent Static Analysis Symposium website to provide a record of past experiments and tools, allowing future research to better evaluate and contrast existing work.
Artifact submission is optional. Details on what to submit and how will be forthcoming.
The submitted artifacts will be used by the program committee as a secondary evaluation criteria whose sole purpose is to find additional positive arguments for the paper's acceptance. Submissions without artifacts are welcome and will not be penalized.
