ATVA 2020 is the 18th in a series of symposia aimed at bringing together academics, industrial researchers and practitioners in the area of theoretical and practical aspects of automated analysis, synthesis, and verification of hardware and software systems.
ATVA solicits high quality submissions in the following suggestive list of topics:
Formalisms for modeling hardware, software and embedded systems
Specification and verification of finite-state, infinite-state and parameterized system
Program analysis and software verification
Analysis and verification of hardware circuits, systems-on-chip and embedded systems
Analysis of real-time, hybrid, priced, weighted and probabilistic systems
Deductive, algorithmic, compositional, and abstraction/refinement techniques for analysis and verification
Analytical techniques for safety, security, and dependability
Testing and runtime analysis based on verification technology
Analysis and verification of parallel and concurrent systems
Verification in industrial practice
Synthesis for hardware and software systems
Applications and case studies
Automated tool support
ATVA welcomes submissions in the following two categories:
Regular research papers (16 pages, including references)
Tool papers (6 pages, including references)
Submissions must be in Springer’s LNCS format. Additional material may be placed in an appendix, to be read at the discretion of the reviewers and to be omitted in the final version. Formatting style files and further guidelines for formatting can be found at the Springer website.
Tool papers must include information about a URL from where the tool can be downloaded or accessed on-line for evaluation. The URL must also contain a set of examples, and a user manual that describes usage of the tool through examples. In case the tool needs to be downloaded and installed, the URL must contain instructions for installation of the tool on Linux/Windows/MacOS.
Papers must be submitted through EasyChair.
Accepted papers in both categories will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to register and present the paper at the conference.
