Call For Papers

SAS 2014, Munich, Sept. 11-13, 2014


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 21th International Static Analysis Symposium, SAS 2014, will be held in Munich, Germany. Previous symposia were held in Seattle, 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 2014 will consist of invited lectures and presentations of refereed papers. Contributions are welcomed on all aspects of static analysis, including, but not limited to:
Abstract domains
Abstract testing
Data flow analysis
New applications
Program verification
Theoretical frameworks
Abstract interpretation
Bug detection
Model checking
Program transformation
Security analysis
Type checking

Paper Submission

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic, object-oriented, aspect, multi-core, distributed, and GPU 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. 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 15 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.

Formatting style files and further guidelines for formatting can be found at Submissions deviating from these guidelines risk summary rejection.

Submissions will be handled online. Information on the submission procedure will be provided here in due course.
Artifact Submission

As last 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.

Important Dates

Submission deadline: abstracts must be received by March 7, 2014, and complete papers by March 14, 2014. These deadlines are strict; submissions where abstract or paper are received later will not be evaluated.
Rebuttal: May 15-18, 2014
Notification of acceptance: June 1, 2014
Final version due: June 22, 2014
Early registration: On or before July 20, 2014
Workshop day: September 10, 2014
Conference: September 11-13, 2014

Affiliated Events (tentative)

NSAD: The 6th Workshop on Numerical and Symbolic Abstract Domains
SASB: The 5th Workshop on Static Analysis and Systems Biology
TAPAS: The 5th Workshop on Tools for Automatic Program Analysis

Registration and Accommodation

Information concerning registration and accommodation will be provided here in due course.


In 2014, the conference will take place in Novotel at Munich, Germany.

Munich is the lively capital of Bavaria. Close to the alps, Munich hosts three universities and a variety of touristic attractions. These include museums such as the German museum for technology and science, several first class theaters as well as historical monuments built by the bavarian kings who took a keen interest in art, construction and collection.
