Objectives

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 presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area. The Sixteenth International Static Analysis Symposium (SAS 2009) will be held in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Previous symposia were held in Valencia, Kongens Lyngby, Seoul, London, Verona, San Diego, Madrid, Paris, Santa Barbara, Venezia, Pisa, Paris, Aachen, Glasgow, and Namur.

SAS 2009 will be co-located with LICS 2009, 24th IEEE Symposium on Logic in Computer Science. SAS and LICS will have a shared session with an invited speaker. Last time SAS and LICS were co-located was in 2000 in Santa Barbara.

Topics

The technical programme for SAS 2009 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

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, and application papers, that describe experience with industrial applications, are also welcomed.

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.

Call For Papers

Submissions Information

  • The submission site is now open.
  • Paper submissions should not exceed 15 pages in 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.
  • 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.
  • The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Organizers
