10th Workshop on Tools for Automatic Program Analysis (TAPAS 2019)

by David Delmas, May 29, 2019

8 October 2019, Porto, Portugal.
Part of the FM Week.

This workshop is intended to promote discussions and exchange experience between users of static analysis tools and specialists in all areas of program analysis design and implementation.

A satellite workshop of SAS 2019. Part of the FM Week.

Objectives

In recent years, a wide range of static analysis tools have emerged, some of which are currently in industrial use or are well beyond the advanced prototype level. Many impressive practical results have been obtained, which allow complex properties to be proven or checked in a fully or semi-automatic way, even in the context of complex software developments. In parallel, the techniques to design and implement static analysis tools have improved significantly, and much effort is being put into engineering the tools.

This workshop is intended to promote discussions and exchange experience between users of static analysis tools and specialists in all areas of program analysis design and implementation.

Scope

The technical program of TAPAS 2019 will consist of invited lectures, together with presentations based on submitted papers or abstracts.

Submissions can cover any aspect of program analysis tools including, but not limited to the following:

  • design and implementation of static analysis tools (including practical techniques used for obtaining precision and performance)
  • components of static analysis tools (front-ends, abstract domains, etc.)
  • integration of static analyzers (in proof assistants, test generation tools, IDEs, etc.)
  • reusable software infrastructure (analysis algorithms and frameworks)
  • experience reports on the use of static analyzers (both research prototypes and industrial tools)

This workshop welcomes work in progress, overviews of more extensive work, programmatic or position papers and tool presentations.

Submission Guidelines

TAPAS 2019 welcomes the following categories of submissions:

  • Regular papers (12-15+ pages)
  • Short papers (6-8+ pages)
  • Extended abstracts (2 pages)

Please use the LNCS style, and submit via the TAPAS 2019 author interface of EasyChair.

Publication

Revised versions of selected papers will be published after the workshop by Springer in a volume of its Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), which will collect contributions to some workshops and symposia co-located with FM 2019.

The workshop will also have informal proceedings, posted on its web page.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: 4 July 2019
  • Notification of acceptance: 2 August
  • Final version due: 31 August
  • Workshop: 8 October
  • Post-proceedings due: 15 November (tentative)
