                  SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

                 Tenth International Workshop on

             Verification and Program Transformation

    Co-Located with the 25th European joint Conference on

        Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS 2022)


VPT-2022 Invited Speakers:

Elvira Albert, Complutense University of Madrid, Spain


Robert Glück, University of Copenhagen, Denmark


The Tenth International Workshop on Verification and Program

Transformation (VPT 2022) 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

    MARS/VPT 2018, Thessaloniki, Greece

    VPT 2019, Genova, Italy

    VPT 2020, Dublin, Ireland

    VPT 2021, Luxembourg, Luxembourg

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 10th, 2022: Abstract submission deadline

* January 17th, 2022: Regular paper submission deadline

* January 31st, 2022: Extended abstracts and presentation-only papers submission deadline

* February 14th, 2022: Acceptance notification

* February 28th, 2022: Camera ready version (for the informal pre-proceedings)

* April 2nd, 2022: Workshop

* May 16th, 2022: Revised paper submission for the formal proceedings in EPTCS deadline

*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 2022: 


Regular 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.

Regular paper 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.


Revised versions of all the accepted papers and accepted extended abstracts,

taking into account the feedback received at the workshop, will be published 

in a volume of the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) 

series after the workshop.

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.
