SYNT 2014 - Call For Papers

3rd Workshop on Synthesis

Vienna, Austria, July 23-24, 2014


The idea of synthesis, i.e., the process of automatically computing
implementations from their specifications, has recently gained a lot
of momentum in the contexts of software engineering and reactive
system design. While it is widely believed that, due to complexity/
undecidability issues, synthesis cannot completely replace manual
engineering, it can assist the process of designing the intricate
pieces of code that most programmers find challenging, or help with
orchestrating tasks in reactive environments.

This workshop aims at bringing together and providing an open
platform for researchers interested in synthesis. Research on
synthesis exists well alongside conferences on formal methods and
verification, such as CAV, which aim at improving the reliability of
systems. Driven by the vast potential for practical applications of
synthesis, we aim at fostering scientific exchange not only within the
areas of software and reactive synthesis, but also between them.

SYNT 2014 is a satellite event of CAV 2014 and will take place in the
scope of the Vienna Summer of Logic (VSL) 2014.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* algorithms and tools for software synthesis and reactive (discrete-
time, timed, hybrid, ...) synthesis
* specification languages and optimization in synthesis
* complexity and impossibility results for synthesis
* case studies of software or hardware synthesis
* connections between verification and synthesis


We welcome scientific contributions of the following forms:
* regular papers (max. 15 pages in EPTCS style, excluding references)
* tool papers (max. 7 pages in EPTCS style, excluding references)

Submitted regular and tool papers must be original and unpublished.
Papers accepted for presentation at the workshop will appear in the
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science series; hence,
submissions must be prepared in LaTeX using the EPTCS macro package.
Given sufficient interest, extended versions of selected papers will
appear in a special issue of the journal Acta Informatica.

Paper submission deadline is April 15, 2014.
