PASTE 2011 : ACM SIGPLAN-SIGSOFT Workshop on Program Analysis for Software Tools and Engineering
Conference Series : Workshop on Program Analysis For Software Tools and Engineering
Call For Papers
PASTE 2011 is the tenth workshop in a series that brings together the program analysis, software tools, and software engineering communities to focus on applications of program analysis techniques in software tools. PASTE 2011 will provide a forum for the presentation of exciting research, empirical results, and new directions in areas including (but not limited to):
program analysis for program understanding, debugging, testing, and reverse engineering
integration of program analysis into the software development and maintenance process
user interfaces for software tools and software visualization
applications of program analysis techniques
analysis of program execution or program evolution
integration of, or tradeoffs between, different analysis techniques
issues in scaling analyses and user interfaces to deal with large systems
PASTE will be a true workshop, with research presentations, organized discussions, opportunities for all attendees to make short presentations, and ample time for debate.
Regular papers: research papers that describe ongoing research or new results. The page limit for this category is 8 pages. The entire paper (including bibliography, appendices, related work discussion, etc.) must fit within the 8-page limit.
Short papers: papers that discuss controversial issues in the field, or describe interesting or thought-provoking ideas that are not yet fully developed. The page limit for this category is 4 pages.
The program committee will select papers based on technical quality, relevance to the PASTE community, and ability to inspire new research and productive discussions at the workshop.
Papers should not exceed the page limits and must follow the ACM formatting guidelines; you can use the alternate style if you wish. Submissions should be in PDF format, printable on US Letter size paper. Papers that do not respect these requirements or are submitted late will be summarily rejected.
Papers submitted to PASTE 2011 must be original work, must not substantially duplicate previous work, and must not be under simultaneous review elsewhere. Violation of any of these criteria will be sufficient grounds for automatic rejection. Please consult the relevant ACM policies (here and here) and SIGPLAN policies. At least one author of every accepted paper must register and attend the event to present their work.
All accepted papers will be published by ACM, will appear in the ACM Digital Library, and will be subject to ACM copyright. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright form; please ensure with your employer that you will be authorized to transfer the copyright.
