Conference Call for Papers


Verified Software: Theories, Tools and Experiments (VSTTE) 2019

July 13-14, 2019, New York City, USA (co-located with CAV 2019)


The Verified Software Initiative (VSI), spearheaded by Tony

Hoare and Jayadev Misra, is an ambitious research program for making

large-scale verified software a practical reality. The Working

Conference on Verified Software: Theories, Tools and Experiments

(VSTTE) is the main forum for advancing the initiative. VSTTE brings

together experts spanning the spectrum of software verification in

order to foster international collaboration on the critical research

challenges. The theoretical work includes semantic foundations and

logics for specification and verification, and verification algorithms

and methodologies. The tools cover specification and annotation

languages, program analyzers, model checkers, interactive verifiers

and proof checkers, automated theorem provers and SAT/SMT solvers, and

integrated verification environments. The experimental work drives the

research agenda for theory and tools by taking on significant

specification/verification exercises covering hardware, operating

systems, compilers, computer security, parallel computing, and

cyber-physical systems.

The 2019 edition of VSTTE will be the 11th working conference in the

series, and will be co-located with CAV 2019 in New York City, USA

SCOPE: We welcome submissions describing significant advances in the

production of verified software. We are especially interested in

submissions describing large-scale verification efforts that involve

collaboration, theory unification, tool integration, and formalized

domain knowledge. We welcome papers describing novel experiments and

case studies evaluating verification techniques and

technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to


Requirements modeling

Specification languages

Specification/verification case-studies

Formal calculi

Software design methods

Automatic code generation

Refinement methodologies

Compositional analysis

Tool integration


Challenge problems

Integrated verification environment

Verification tools

Work on diverse verification technologies, e.g., static analysis,

dynamic analysis, model checking, theorem proving, satisfiability, are

particularly encouraged.

SUBMISSIONS: VSTTE 2019 will accept both long (limited to 20 pages)

and short (limited to 12 pages) paper submissions. Short submissions

also cover Verification Pearls describing an elegant proof or

proof technique. Submitted research papers and system descriptions

must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Research

paper submissions must be in LNCS format and must include a cogent and

self-contained description of the ideas, methods, results, and

comparison to existing work. Submissions of theoretical, practical,

and experimental contributions are equally encouraged, including those

that focus on specific problems or problem domains.

Papers can be submitted at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vstte2019

Submissions that arrive late, are not in the proper format, or are too

long will not be considered. The post-conference proceedings of VSTTE

2019 will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Authors

of accepted papers will be requested to sign a form transferring

copyright of their contribution to Springer-Verlag. The use of LaTeX

and the Springer llncs class files

(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) is strongly
