[isabelle] Call for paper: ACM SAC track on Software Verification


ACM 2007 Symposium on Applied Computing, March 11-15, 2007, Seoul,

Technical Track on Software Verification




1. SAC 2007


For the past twenty-one years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. SAC 2007 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP), and is hosted by Seoul National University in Seoul and The Suwon University in Gyeonggi-do.


2. Technical track on software verification


In the next decade the software industry will have to face its

responsibility imposed by a computer-dependent society. Since software

is increasing deployed in safety critical applications, correctness

and reliability are becoming issues of utmost importance. Consequently, software verification will be a grand challenge for both academic world and computer industry.  The track will focus on theoretical foundations, practical methods as well as case studies for verification of conventional and embedded software. We welcome papers that describe work on combinations of formal verification and program analysis techniques. Tool papers and case studies which report on advances in verifying large software systems are particularly sought. The list of topics includes but not limited to


o    Tools, and case studies for large scale software verification

o    Static analysis/Abstract interpretation for verification

o    Model checking and deductive techniques for software verification

o    Role of declarative programming languages (such as Prolog) for infinite state software verification.

o    Proof techniques for verifying specific classes of software (such as object-oriented programs)

o    Integration of testing and run-time monitoring with formal techniques

o    Validation of UML diagrams, and/or requirement specifications

o    Software certification and proof carrying code

o    Integration of formal verification into software development projects


3. Guidelines for paper submission


Each paper must not exceed 4,000 words and should not be more than 15

pages long using 11 point font and 1 inch margins on all four sides on

letter size paper. Papers that fail to comply with length limitations

risk rejection. Each submitted paper will be fully referenced and

undergo a blind review process. Author(s) must not be identified in

the submissions, either explicitly or by implication.  Before

submitting paper, author(s) should submit a separate cover page that

includes title, abstract, list of keywords, and list of authors with

full names and postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and

e-mail addresses. One of the authors must be designated as the primary

contact person. Please upload the cover page via conference website. A

confirmation email with further instructions on paper submission will

be sent to the contact author. Please contact track chairs for any

problems with submission.  Authors of accepted papers must submit an

editorial revision of their papers that must fit within five

two-column pages following the ACM proceedings format (an extra three

extra pages may be available at additional cost to the authors). At

least one of the authors of an accepted paper must register for the

conference and present the paper. Accepted papers will be published in

the ACM SAC 2006 proceedings.
