                          CALL FOR PAPERS

       10th International Symposium on Automated Technology
             for Verification and Analysis (ATVA 2012)
                         October 3-6, 2012
              Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India


The ATVA series of symposia is intended to promote research in
theoretical and practical aspects of automated analysis, verification
and synthesis in East Asia by providing a forum for interaction
between the regional and international research communities and
industry in the field.  The previous nine editions of the symposium
were held in Taiwan (2003, 2004, 2005), Beijing (2006), Tokyo (2007),
Seoul (2008), Macao (2009), Singapore (2010) and Taipei (2011).  ATVA
2012 will be held in the picturesque campus of Tata Consultancy
Services at Thiruvananthapuram (Trivandrum), India from Oct 3 to Oct
6, 2012.

ATVA 2012 solicits high quality submissions in areas related to the
theory and practice of automated analysis and verification of hardware
and software systems.  Topics of interest include, but are not limited to
the following.
   * 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 
   * 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 hardware/software
   * Verification in industrial practice
   * Applications and case studies

Theory papers should preferably be motivated by practical problems,
and applications should be based on sound theory and solve problems of
practical interest.

Keynote talks and tutorials
ATVA 2012 will feature three keynote talks and tutorials by the
following speakers.  Tutorials are scheduled on October 3, 2012

   * Hardware track: Sharad Malik (Princeton Univ, USA)
   * Software track: Andreas Podelski (Univ of Freiburg, Germany)
   * Theory track: P. S. Thiagarajan (National Univ of Singapore, Singapore)

Submissions are invited in two categories: regular research papers and
tool papers.  Submitted papers must present original and unpublished
work, and must not be concurrently submitted to any other conference
or journal.

Regular paper submissions are restricted to 15 pages in Springer's
LNCS format, and tool paper submissions are restricted to 4 pages in
the same format.  For more information about the format and about
Springer's LNCS author guidelines, please see

Proofs and details omitted due to space constraints may be put in an
appendix.  Any such additional material will be read by
reviewers/program committee members at their discretion. Authors are
therefore urged to include details necessary for evaluation of the
technical merit of their work within the prescribed page limits.

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's manual that describes
usage of the tool through examples.  In case the tool needs to be
downloaded and installed, the URL must also contain a document clearly
giving instructions for installation of the tool on

Authors must upload PDF files of their papers through Easychair

Accepted papers in both categories will be published by Springer as a
LNCS volume.  At least one author of each accepted paper must also
register for the conference and present the paper.

For further information and instructions about submission,
please refer to the conference website (http://www.iarcs.org/atva2012).
