Call For Papers

NEW: Paper Submission Extended - February 26, 2018

The 25th edition of the SPIN symposium aims at bringing together
researchers and practitioners interested in automated tool-based techniques
for the analysis of software as well as models of software, for the purpose
of verification and validation. The symposium specifically focuses on
concurrent software, but does not exclude analysis of sequential software.
Submissions are solicited on theoretical results, novel algorithms, tool
development, and empirical evaluation.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Formal verification techniques for automated analysis of software
* Formal analysis for modeling languages, such as UML/state charts
* Formal specification languages, temporal logic, design-by-contract
* Model checking
* Automated theorem proving, including SAT and SMT
* Verifying compilers
* Abstraction and symbolic execution techniques
* Static analysis and abstract interpretation
* Combination of verification techniques
* Modular and compositional verification techniques
* Verification of timed and probabilistic systems
* Automated testing using advanced analysis techniques
* Combination of static and dynamic analyses
* Derivation of specifications, test cases, or other useful material via
formal analysis
* Case studies of interesting systems or with interesting results
* Engineering and implementation of software verification and analysis
* Benchmark and comparative studies for formal verification and analysis
* Formal methods education and training
* Insightful surveys or historical accounts on topics of relevance to the

Important Dates
* Paper Submission Extended: April 3, 2018 (23:59:59 Anywhere on Earth)
* Author Notification : April 23, 2018
* Camera-Ready Paper: May 5, 2018
* Symposium : June 20-22, 2018

Submission Guidelines
The proceedings of SPIN will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in
Computer Science series. A selection of papers will be invited to a special
issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology
Transfer (STTT) (JCR 2016 - 1.612).

With the exception of survey and history papers, the papers should contain
original work which has not been submitted or accepted for publication
elsewhere. Submissions should adhere to the LNCS format:

We are soliciting three categories of papers:
* Full Research Papers describing fully developed work and complete results
(16 pages - references are not included in this limit)
* Short Papers presenting tools, technology, experiences with lessons
learned, new ideas, work in progress with preliminary results, and novel
contributions to formal methods (6 pages - references are not included in this limit)
* Tool demo papers presenting the foundations, capabilities, application domains and relevant examples using the tools, with a clear description of what is expected to be shown in a live demonstration (4 pages to describe the tool foundations, features and use examples, plus an appendix explaining the content of the demo).

Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair SPIN 2018 submission website:

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer-reviewed by
members of the program committee. Submissions will be evaluated on the
basis of originality, importance of contribution, soundness, evaluation,
quality of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the symposium and
present the paper.

Best Paper awards will be given and announced at the conference.
