Co-Located with the 23rd European joint Conference on
Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS 2020)

The Seventh International Workshop on Verification and Program
Transformation (VPT 2020) aims to bring together researchers
working in the areas of Program Verification and Program Transformation.

The previous workshops in this series were:

VPT 2013, Saint Petersburg, Russia
VPT 2014, Vienna, Austria
VPT 2015, London, UK
VPT 2016, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
VPT 2017, Uppsala, Sweden
MARS/VPT 2018, Thessaloniki, Greece
VPT 2019, Genova, Italy

The workshop solicits research, position, application, and
system description papers with a special emphasis on case studies,
demonstrating viability of the interactions between the research fields
of program transformation and program verification in a broad sense.
Also papers in related areas, such as program testing and program synthesis are welcomed.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Verification by Program Transformation
* Verification Techniques in Program Transformation and Synthesis
* Verification and Certification of Programs Transformations
* Program Analysis and Transformation
* Program Testing and Transformation
* Verifiable Computing and Program Transformation
* Case studies

*Important Dates*

* January 13th, 2020: Abstract submission deadline
* January 20th, 2020: Regular paper submission deadline
* February 10th, 2020: Extended abstracts and presentation-only papers submission deadline
* March 9th, 2020: Acceptance notification
* March 23rd, 2020: Camera ready version (for the informal pre-proceedings)
* April 25th and 26th, 2020: Workshop
* May 18th, 2020: Revised paper submission for the formal proceedings in EPTCS deadline

*Submission Guidelines*

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper in PDF, formatted in
the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science LaTeX Style (,
via the Easychair submission website for VPT 2020 :

Regular papers must describe original work that has not been published,
or currently submitted, to a journal, conference,
or workshop with refereed proceedings.
Also papers that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted.

Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations;
contact author's email; abstract;
and three to four keywords that will be used
to assist the PC in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper.
Page numbers should appear on the manuscript to help the reviewers in writing their report.

Regular paper submissions should not exceed 15 pages including references but excluding
well-marked appendices not intended for publication.
Reviewers are not required to read the appendices,
and thus papers should be intelligible without them.


Revised versions of all the accepted papers and accepted extended abstracts,
taking into account the feedback received at the workshop,
will be published in a volume of the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer (EPTCS) series after the workshop.

If the workshop will attract sufficiently many high quality papers,
a special issue of a journal on the topic of the workshop
will be considered.
The special issue will be open to high quality papers accepted for presentation in previous editions of the workshop.
