Call for Research Track Papers
==============================

The 16th IEEE International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis
and Manipulation (SCAM 2016) aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners working on theory, techniques, and applications that
concern analysis and/or manipulation of the source code of software
systems. The term "source code" refers to any fully executable
description of a software system, such as machine code, (very)
high-level languages, and executable graphical representations of
systems. The term "analysis" refers to any (semi-)automated procedure
that yields insight into source code, while "manipulation" refers to any
automated or semi-automated procedure that takes and returns source
code. While much attention in the wider software engineering community
is 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 a system. Hence, the analysis and manipulation of source code remains
a pressing concern for which SCAM 2016 solicits high quality paper
submissions.

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:

- program transformation and refactoring
- static and dynamic analysis
- source level metrics
- decompilation
- bug location and prediction
- security vulnerability analysis
- source-level testing and verification
- concern, concept, and feature mining
- program comprehension
- bad smell detection
- abstract interpretation
- program slicing
- source level optimization
- energy efficient source code

SCAM explicitly solicits results from any theoretical or technological
domain that can be applied to these and similar topics. Submitted papers
should describe original, unpublished, and significant work and must not
have been previously accepted for publication nor be concurrently
submitted for review in another journal, book, conference, or workshop.
Papers must not exceed 10 pages including all text, references,
appendices and figures and must conform to the IEEE proceedings paper
format guidelines and must be clearly marked as a research paper.
Templates in Latex and Word are available on IEEE's website. All
submissions must be in English.

The papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format via
EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=scam2016.
submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the program
committee, judging the paper on its novelty, quality, importance,
evaluation, and scientific rigor. If the paper is accepted, at least one
author must attend the conference and present the paper.

SCAM 2016 also features an engineering paper track for papers that
report on the design and implementation of tools for source code
analysis and manipulation.
