SCAM brings together researchers and practitioners working on theory,
techniques and applications which concern analysis and/or manipulation
of the source code of computer systems. While much attention in the
wider software engineering community is properly directed towards
other aspects of systems development and evolution, such as
specification, design and requirements engineering, it is the source
code that contains the only precise description of the behaviour of
the system. The analysis and manipulation of source code thus remains
a pressing concern.

This year’s program is led off by a keynote entitled ``How Analysis
Can Hinder Source Code Manipulation - And What to Do about It'' by
Michael Ernst. Michael’s keynote will be followed by two days of
presentations of 17 full papers and 3 practical tool demonstrations,
including original and significant research and tools in the field of
source code analysis and manipulation, with topics in:

- program transformation
- abstract interpretation
- program slicing
- source level software metrics
- decompilation
- source level testing and verification
- source level optimization
- program comprehension

In keeping with the spirit and format of a working conference, SCAM will
continue its tradition of a highly discursive meeting, with theme-based
discussion tracks aimed at structuring and stimulating discussion.
Authors will have a 15 minute slot to present their work, with 10
minutes (maximum) for talking with 5 minutes (minimum) for questions.
Authors are encouraged not to attempt to present the details of their
paper in this time. Rather, respecting the discussion-centered goal of
SCAM, authors are encouraged to use a few slides to present points,
claims, issues and topics for discussion and to use their time
allocation to attempt to set the agenda for the ensuing discussions.
Each session has a specifically allocated discussion time at the end of
the presentations to allow for this.

General Chair:
Thomas Dean, Queen’s University, Canada

Program Co-chairs:
Sibylle Schupp, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden
Andrew Walenstein, University of Louisiana at Lafeyette, USA
