SAS'02 Call for Papers

The 9th International Static Analysis Symposium

September 17 - 20 2002, Madrid, Spain

New Submission Deadline: May 10

Static Analysis is increasingly recognized as a fundamental tool for high performance implementations and verification systems of high-level programming languages. The series of Static Analysis Symposia has served as the primary venue for presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area.

The Ninth International Static Analysis Symposium (SAS'02) will be held at the Technical University of Madrid, co-located with Logic-based Program Development and Transformation (LOPSTR'02) and the APPIA-GULP-PRODE Joint Conference on Declarative Programming (AGP'02). Previous symposia were held in Paris, Santa Barbara, Venice, Pisa, Paris, Aachen, Glasgow and Namur.

The technical program for SAS'02 will consist of invited lectures, tutorials, panels, presentations of refereed papers, and software demonstrations. Contributions are welcome on all aspects of Static Analysis, including, but not limited to:

abstract interpretation,   data flow analysis,
verification systems,   program specialization,
abstract domains,   optimizing compilers,
theoretical frameworks,   type inference,
abstract model checking,   complexity analysis,
abstract testing,   security analysis.

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic and object-oriented programming. Survey papers that present some aspect of the above topics with a new coherence are also welcome.

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.

Submission instructions:

All submissions must be performed electronically at Submitted papers should be at most 15 pages excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices. Program committee members are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without them. The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (see for the LNCS author instructions). Thus, adhering to that style already in the submission is strongly encouraged. Papers should be submitted either in PostScript or PDF format and they should be interpretable by Ghostscript or Acrobat Reader. Papers must be printable on either A4 paper or US letter, and preferably on both.

Important dates:

Submissions should arrive by May 10, 2002.
Authors will be notified of the acceptance or rejection of their papers by June 24, 2002.
Final versions of the accepted papers must be received in camera-ready and electronic form by July 8, 2002.
SAS'02 conference dates: Sept 17-20, 2002.
