                  CALL FOR PAPERS 

SPIN 2022 - 28th International Symposium on Model Checking of Software

Chicago, Illinois, USA, May 21-22, 2022

Conference website: https://spin2022chi.web.illinois.edu

Submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=spin2022

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 the analysis of sequential software. Submissions are solicited on theoretical results, novel algorithms, tool development, and empirical evaluation.

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, and symbolic execution. An overview of the previous SPIN symposia (and early workshops) can be found at: 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 of education and training
Insightful surveys or historical accounts on topics of relevance to the symposium
Relevant tools and algorithms for modern hardware, e.g.: parallel, GPU, TPU, cloud, and quantum


Submissions due: March 25, 2022 (23:59:59 Anywhere on Earth)
Author notification: April 29, 2022
Camera ready: May 9, 2022
Symposium: May 21-22, 2022


Papers should be submitted via the EasyChair SPIN 2022 submission website:


The proceedings of SPIN 2022 will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Submissions should adhere to the LNCS format: http://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines

With the exception of survey and history papers, the papers should contain original work that has not been submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere.

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).

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, the 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.

Traditionally, a selection of papers were invited to a special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT).
