                              SAS 2014

                   Static Analysis Symposium 2014

                           Final Call for Papers

                http://cs.uni-muenster.de/sev/sas14/

---------------------------------------------------------------------


Objective
---------

Static Analysis is increasingly 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 21th
International Static Analysis Symposium, SAS 2014, will be held in
Munich, Germany. Previous symposia were held in Seattle, Deauville,
Venice, Perpignan, Los Angeles, Valencia, Kongens Lyngby, Seoul,
London, Verona, San Diego, Madrid, Paris, Santa Barbara, Pisa, Aachen,
Glasgow, and Namur.


Topics
------

The technical program for SAS 2014 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		* Abstract interpretation
     * Abstract testing		* Bug detection
     * Data flow analysis	* Model checking
     * New applications		* Program transformation
     * Program verification	* Security analysis
     * Theoretical frameworks	* Type checking


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. Program
committee members are not required to read the appendices, and thus
papers must be intelligible without them.


Artifact Submission
-------------------

As last year, 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. Details on what to submit and how
will be forthcoming.

The submitted artifacts will be used by the program committee as a
secondary evaluation criteria whose sole purpose is to find additional
positive arguments for the paper's acceptance. Submissions without
artifacts are welcome and will not be penalized.


Dates
-----

  * Submission deadline: abstracts must be received by March 7, 2014,
    and complete papers by March 14, 2014.  These deadlines are
    strict; submissions where abstract or paper are received later
    will not be evaluated.

  * Rebuttal: May 15-18, 2014

  * Notification of acceptance: June 1, 2014

  * Final version due: June 22, 2014

  * Early registration: On or before July 20, 2014

  * Workshop day: September 10, 2014

  * Conference: September 11-13, 2014

Planned Affiliated Events
-------------------------

NSAD: The 6th Workshop on Numerical and Symbolic Abstract Domains
SASB: The 5th Workshop on Static Analysis and Systems Biology

Venue
-----

In 2014, the conference will take place in Novotel at Munich,
Germany. Munich is the lively capital of Bavaria. Close to the alps,
Munich hosts three universities and a variety of touristic
attractions. These include museums such as the German museum for
technology and science, several first class theaters as well as
historical monuments built by the bavarian kings who took a keen
interest in art, construction and collection.
