Call For Papers

Static Analysis is widely recognized as a fundamental tool for program verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program understanding, and software maintenance. The series of Static Analysis Symposia has served as the primary venue for the presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area. The 25th Static Analysis Symposium, SAS 2018, will be held in Freiburg, Germany. Previous symposia were held in New York, Edinburgh, Saint-Malo, Munich, Seattle, Deauville, Venice, Perpignan, Los Angeles, Valencia, Kongens Lyngby, Seoul, London, Verona, San Diego, Madrid, Paris, Santa Barbara, Pisa, Aachen, Glasgow, and Namur. The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Advanced Research in Computing and Software Science (ARCoSS) subline of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

The technical program for SAS 2018 will consist of invited lectures and presentations of refereed papers. Contributions are welcomed on all aspects of static analysis, including, but not limited to:

Abstract domains
Automated deduction
Emerging applications
Program optimizations and transformations
Program verification
Tool environments and architectures
Type checking
Abstract interpretation
Data flow analysis
Deductive methods
Model checking
Program synthesis
Security analysis
Theoretical frameworks

Paper Submission
Submissions can address any programming paradigm including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic, object-oriented, aspect, multi-core, distributed, and GPU programming. Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with refereed proceedings. Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. They should clearly identify what has been accomplished and why it is significant. Paper submissions should not exceed 15 pages in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science LNCS format, excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices (we may admit additional pages for the final version). Program Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers must be intelligible without them.

Submissions are handled online:

Artifact Submission
As in previous years, we are encouraging authors to submit a virtual machine image containing any artifacts and evaluations presented in the paper. The goal of the artifact submissions is to strengthen our field's scientific approach to evaluations and reproducibility of results. The virtual machines will be archived on a permanent Static Analysis Symposium website to provide a record of past experiments and tools, allowing future research to better evaluate and contrast existing work. Artifact submission is optional. We accept only virtual machine images that can be processed with Virtual Box. Details on what to submit and how will be sent to the corresponding authors by mail shortly after the paper submission deadline. The submitted artifacts will be used by the program committee as a secondary evaluation criterion whose sole purpose is to find additional positive arguments for the paper's acceptance. Furthermore, an Artifact Evaluation Committee will assess artifacts and will award an "Artifact Approved" stamps to accepted papers that come with an artifact that allows to reproduce the results presented in the paper. Submissions without artifacts are welcome and will not be penalized.

Important Dates
Abstract submission: March 31st, 2018
Full paper submission: April 6th, 2018
Artifact submissions: April 20th, 2018
Author notification: May 29th, 2018
Final version due: June 29th, 2018
