Call for Papers and Tool Papers - SCAM 2011

Eleventh IEEE International Working Conference
on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation

25th-26th September,
Williamsburg, VA, USA,
Co-located with ICSM 2011


Sponsored by IEEE CS
In cooperation with:
- Centre for Research in Evolution, Search and Testing (CREST),
University College London, UK
- IET Software

Conference aims:

The aim of this working conference is to bring 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 SCAM will feature an outstanding keynote:
Paul Black, National Institute of Standards and Technology, USA

Covered topics and paper formats:
We welcome submission of papers that describe original and significant
work in the field of source code analysis and manipulation. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

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

SCAM explicitly solicits results from any theoretical or technological
domain that can be applied to these and similar topics.

SCAM also welcomes papers that report on the design, implementation,
and experience using tools for source code analysis and
manipulation. These "tool papers" should aptly and accurately describe
the tool, motivate its existence, and describe its architecture and
inner workings. Papers should demonstrate convincing scenarios of use;
ideally, the scenarios should be reproducible. SCAM tools papers
should make a contribution that can benefit other persons engaged in
design and implementation of tools for source code analysis and
manipulation. A webpage about the tool with download instructions,
documentation, and/or video demonstrations (created using screen
capture techniques) is encouraged and should be referenced in the
paper. More information about the tool papers is available at

Submitted papers should not be longer than 10 pages. All papers
submitted should follow IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author
Guidelines. The papers should be submitted electronically via the
conference web site. Submitted papers should not have been previously
published, and should not have been concurrently submitted
elsewhere. Papers must be clearly marked as research or tool paper.

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings which will be
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.

Special Issue:
Best papers from SCAM 2011 will be considered for revision, extension,
and publication in a special issue of IET Software
