SPIN 2017

24th International Symposium on Model Checking of Software
Santa Barbara, CA, USA, July 13-14, 2017

http://conf.researchr.org/home/spin-2017 <http://conf.researchr.org/home/spin-2017>

Collocated with ISSTA 

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.

History: The SPIN symposium originated as a workshop focusing on explicit state model checking, specifically as related to the Spin model checker. However, over the years it has evolved to a broadly scoped symposium for software analysis using any automated techniques, including model checking, automated theorem proving, symbolic execution, etc.

SPIN 2017 will be arranged as a ACM SIGSOFT event, collocated with the International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis (ISSTA 2017): http://conf.researchr.org/home/issta-2017 <http://conf.researchr.org/home/issta-2017>. An overview of the previous SPIN symposia (and early workshops) can be found at: http://spinroot.com/spin/symposia <http://spinroot.com/spin/symposia>.

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 tools
Benchmark and comparative studies for formal verification and analysis tools
Formal methods education and training
Insightful surveys or historical accounts on topics of relevance to the symposium

Submission Guidelines

The contributions to SPIN 2017 will be published as ACM Proceedings, and should be submitted in the ACM Conference Format: https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template <https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template>.

With the exception of survey and history papers, submissions must be original and should not have been published previously or be under consideration for publication while being evaluated for this symposium. 

We are soliciting two categories of papers:

Full Research Papers describing fully developed work and complete results (10 pages);
Short Papers presenting tools, technology, experiences with lessons learned, new ideas, work in progress with preliminary results, and novel contributions to formal methods education (4 pages).
Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair SPIN 2017 submission website: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=spin2017 <https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=spin2017>.

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

A selection of papers will be invited to a special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT).
