Call For Papers

Verified Software: Theories, Tools and Experiments (VSTTE) 2019
July 13-14, 2019, New York City, USA (co-located with CAV 2019)

The Verified Software Initiative (VSI), spearheaded by Tony
Hoare and Jayadev Misra, is an ambitious research program for making
large-scale verified software a practical reality. The Working
Conference on Verified Software: Theories, Tools and Experiments
(VSTTE) is the main forum for advancing the initiative. VSTTE brings
together experts spanning the spectrum of software verification in
order to foster international collaboration on the critical research
challenges. The theoretical work includes semantic foundations and
logics for specification and verification, and verification algorithms
and methodologies. The tools cover specification and annotation
languages, program analyzers, model checkers, interactive verifiers
and proof checkers, automated theorem provers and SAT/SMT solvers, and
integrated verification environments. The experimental work drives the
research agenda for theory and tools by taking on significant
specification/verification exercises covering hardware, operating
systems, compilers, computer security, parallel computing, and
cyber-physical systems.

The 2019 edition of VSTTE will be the 11th working conference in the
series, and will be co-located with CAV 2019 in New York City, USA

SCOPE: We welcome submissions describing significant advances in the
production of verified software. We are especially interested in
submissions describing large-scale verification efforts that involve
collaboration, theory unification, tool integration, and formalized
domain knowledge. We welcome papers describing novel experiments and
case studies evaluating verification techniques and
technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Requirements modeling
Specification languages
Specification/verification case-studies
Formal calculi
Software design methods
Automatic code generation
Refinement methodologies
Compositional analysis
Tool integration
Challenge problems
Integrated verification environment
Verification tools

Work on diverse verification technologies, e.g., static analysis,
dynamic analysis, model checking, theorem proving, satisfiability, are
particularly encouraged.

SUBMISSIONS: VSTTE 2019 will accept both long (limited to 20 pages)
and short (limited to 12 pages) paper submissions. Short submissions
also cover Verification Pearls describing an elegant proof or
proof technique. Submitted research papers and system descriptions
must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Research
paper submissions must be in LNCS format and must include a cogent and
self-contained description of the ideas, methods, results, and
comparison to existing work. Submissions of theoretical, practical,
and experimental contributions are equally encouraged, including those
that focus on specific problems or problem domains.

Papers can be submitted at
Submissions that arrive late, are not in the proper format, or are too
long will not be considered. The post-conference proceedings of VSTTE
2019 will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Authors
of accepted papers will be requested to sign a form transferring
copyright of their contribution to Springer-Verlag. The use of LaTeX
and the Springer llncs class files
