Call for Papers

Link to the CFP Poster


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.

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


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 Submitted papers must present original and unpublished work, and must not be concurrently submitted to any other conference or journal.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 here.

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 Linux/Windows/MacOS.

Authors must upload PDF files of their papers through Easychair. The submission server opens on March 1, 2012.

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.
