NSAD 2016 : 6th Workshop on Numerical and Symbolic Abstract Domains
Call For Papers
NSAD 2016 CALL FOR PAPERS
6th International Workshop on Numerical and Symbolic Abstract Domains (NSAD)
September 11, 2016, Edinburgh, Scotland
Co-located with SAS 2016 (http://staticanalysis.org/sas2016/), 23rd Static Analysis Symposium.
OBJECTIVES AND SCOPE
Abstract domains are a key notion in Abstract Interpretation theory and practice. They embed the semantic choices, data structures and algorithmic aspects, and implementation decisions. The Abstract Interpretation framework provides constructive and systematic formal methods to design, compose, compare, study, prove, and apply abstract domains. Many abstract domains have been designed so far: numerical domains (intervals, congruences, polyhedra, polynomials, etc.), symbolic domains (shape domains, trees, etc.), but also domain operators (products, powersets, completions, etc.), which have been applied to several kinds of static analyses (safety, termination, probability, etc.).
The Sixth International Workshop on Numerical and Symbolic Abstract Domains is intended to discuss on-going work and ideas in the field.
The program of NSAD 2016 will primarily consist of presentations of refereed papers. Contributions are welcomed on all aspects of abstract domains, including, but not limited to:
numeric abstract domains
symbolic abstract domains
extrapolations and accelerations
compositions and operations on abstract domains
data structures and algorithms for abstract domains
novel applications of abstract domains
practical experiments and comparisons
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee.
Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages including bibliography, and follow the ENTCS guidelines. Submitted papers may include, in addition, an appendix containing technical details, which reviewers may read or not, at their discretion.
Papers must be written and presented in English, and describe original work that does not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings.
The NSAD 2016 proceedings will be published electronically in a volume of the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science series by ScienceDirect, Elsevier.
