Call For Papers

Numerical and Symbolic Abstract Domains (NSAD 2017)
7th International Workshop

New York City, NY, USA - August 29, 2017


1-page abstract (for presentation): July 20, 2017 (AoE) --- NEW
Regular paper submission: July 20, 2017 (AoE) --- EXTENDED



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.), and have been applied to several kinds of static analyses (safety, termination, probability, etc.).

The 7th International Workshop on Numerical and Symbolic Abstract Domains is intended to discuss on-going works and ideas in the field.


The program of NSAD 2017 will consist mainly 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 implementations
practical experiments and comparisons


NSAD 2017 is co-located with SAS 2017 and takes place in the Forbes Building of the New York University.


NSAD 2017 proceedings will be published electronically in a volume of the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science series by ScienceDirect©, Elsevier.

Submissions are invited in two categories:

-- 1-page abstract (for presentation of ongoing work or already published papers) -- NEW!
-- regular paper (not exceeding 12 pages including references)

Authors of accepted 1-page abstracts will have the opportunity for short oral presentations at the workshop, but abstracts will not be included in the proceedings.

Submitted regular 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. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee.

Authors of regular papers have the option to be part of the proceedings or not. By default, all accepted regular papers will be included in the proceedings.
