SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

Sixth International Workshop on Verification and Program Transformation
April 21st 2018, Thessaloniki, Greece
Co-Located with ETAPS 2018

The Sixth International Workshop on Verification and Program Transformation (VPT 2018) aims to bring together researchers working in the areas of Program Verification and Program Transformation.

The previous workshops in this series were:

    VPT 2013, Saint Petersburg, Russia
    VPT 2014, Vienna, Austria
    VPT 2015, London, UK
    VPT 2016, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
    VPT 2017, Uppsala, Sweden

The workshop solicits research, position, application, and system description papers with a special emphasis on case studies, demonstrating viability of the interactions between the research fields of program transformation and program verification in a broad sense. Also papers in related areas, such as program testing and program synthesis are welcomed.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    Verification by Program Transformation
    Verification Techniques in Program Transformation and Synthesis
    Verification and Certification of Programs Transformations
    Program Analysis and Transformation
    Program Testing and Transformation
    Verifiable Computing and Program Transformation
    Case studies

Important Dates
    
    January 16th, 2018: Abstract submission deadline
    January 22nd, 2018: Paper submission deadline
    February 19th, 2018: Acceptance notification
    February 25th, 2018: Camera ready version (for the pre-proceedings)
    April 21st, 2018: Workshop

Submission Guidelines

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper in PDF, formatted in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science LaTeX Style (http://style.eptcs.org/), via the Easychair submission website for VPT 2018 : https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vpt2018

Papers must describe original work that has not been published, or currently submitted, to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings. Also papers that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted.

Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations; contact author's email; abstract; and three to four keywords that will be used to assist the PC in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Page numbers should appear on the manuscript to help the reviewers in writing their report.

Submissions should not exceed 15 pages including references but excluding well-marked appendices not intended for publication. Reviewers are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without them.

Proceedings

The post-proceedings will be published in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer (EPTCS) series (http://about.eptcs.org/), as was done for previous editions of VPT.

If the workshop attracts sufficiently many high quality papers, a special issue of a journal on the topic of the workshop will be considered. The special issue will be open to high quality papers accepted for presentation in previous editions of the workshop.
