Call For Papers


9th Working Conference on Verified Software:
Theories, Tools, and Experiments (VSTTE)

July 22-23, 2017, Heidelberg, Germany

Co-located with the 29th International Conference
on Computer-Aided Verification, CAV 2017

Deadline Extension

The deadlines for submitting abstracts and full papers have
been extended by one week. The new deadlines are firm.

Important Dates

* Abstract submission (extended): Mon, May 1, 2017 (AoE)
* Full paper submission (extended): Mon, May 8, 2017 (AoE)
* Notification: Mon, Jun 5, 2017
* VSTTE: Sat-Sun, Jul 22-23, 2017
* Camera-ready: Mon, Aug 21, 2017


The goal of the VSTTE conference series is to advance the state of the
art in the science and technology of software verification, through the
interaction of theory development, tool evolution, and experimental

We welcome submissions describing significant advances in the production
of verified software, i.e., software that has been proved to meet its
functional specifications. Submissions of theoretical, practical, and
experimental contributions are equally encouraged, including those
that focus on specific problems or problem domains. We are especially
interested in submissions describing large-scale verification efforts
that involve collaboration, theory unification, tool integration, and
formalized domain knowledge. We also welcome papers describing novel
experiments and case studies evaluating verification techniques and

Topics of interest for VSTTE include education, requirements modeling,
specification languages, specification/verification/certification case
studies, formal calculi, software design methods, automatic code generation,
refinement methodologies, compositional analysis, verification tools
(e.g., static analysis, dynamic analysis, model checking, theorem proving,
satisfiability), tool integration, benchmarks, challenge problems, and
integrated verification environments.

Paper Submissions

We accept both long (limited to 16 pages, references not included) and
short (limited to 10 pages, references not included) paper submissions.
Short submissions also cover Verification Pearls describing an elegant
proof or proof technique. Submitted research papers and system descriptions
must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere.
Each submission will be evaluated by at least three members of the
Program Committee. We expect that one author of every accepted paper
will present their work at the conference.

Paper submissions must be written in English using the LNCS LaTeX format
and must include a cogent and self-contained description of the ideas,
methods, results, and comparison to existing work.

Papers will be submitted via EasyChair at the VSTTE 2017 conference page
( The post-conference
proceedings of VSTTE 2017 will be published in the LNCS series. Authors
of accepted papers will be requested to sign the copyright transfer form.
A selection of best papers will be invited for publication in the Journal
of Automated Reasoning.
