14th International Symposium on Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis
October 17 - 20, 2016, Chiba, Japan
The purpose of ATVA is to promote research on theoretical and practical aspects of automated analysis, verification and synthesis by providing a forum for interaction between the regional and the international research communities and industry in the field. The previous events were held in Taiwan - 2003-5, Beijing - 2006, Tokyo - 2007, Seoul - 2008, Macao - 2009, Singapore - 2010, Taiwan - 2011, Thiruvananthapuram - 2012, Hanoi – 2013, Sydney – 2014, and Shanghai - 2015.

ATVA 2016 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:
Theory papers should preferably be motivated by practical problems, and applications should be based on sound theory and should solve problems of practical interest.
ATVA invites research contributions in two categories:
Contributions must be written in English and in LNCS format, and must present original research that is unpublished and not submitted elsewhere (conferences or journals). The proceedings of ATVA 2016 will be published by Springer as a volume in the series of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
PDF versions of the papers should be submitted to EasyChair.
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.
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.
ATVA 2016 invites submissions for workshop proposals on topics of interest to the ATVA series. The workshops will be either half day or one full day. The workshops will be scheduled on October 20 and 21, 2016. Please send proposals by email to the ATVA contact address firstname.lastname@example.org
