Call for Papers

The 27th Static Analysis Symposium, SAS 2020, will be held from November 18th to November 20th in Chicago, Illinois, United States.

Static analysis is widely recognized as a fundamental tool for program verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program understanding, and software maintenance. The series of Static Analysis Symposia has served as the primary venue for the presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area.

Topics

The technical program for SAS 2020 will consist of invited lectures and presentations of refereed papers. Contributions are welcomed on all aspects of static analysis, including, but not limited to:

Abstract domains Abstract interpretation Automated deduction
Data flow analysis Debugging Deductive methods
Emerging applications Model checking Program optimizations and transformations
Program synthesis Program verification Security analysis
Tool environments and architectures Theoretical frameworks Type checking

Submission

Submit electronically via the EasyChair submission page.

Papers

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic, object-oriented, aspect, multi-core, distributed, and GPU programming.

  • Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English, and must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with refereed proceedings.
  • Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity.
  • They should clearly identify what has been accomplished and why it is significant.
  • Paper submissions should not exceed 18 pages in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format, excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices. Program Committee members are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers must be intelligible without them.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

Artifacts

As in previous years, we encourage authors to submit a virtual machine image containing any artifacts and evaluations presented in the paper. The goal of the artifact submissions is to strengthen our field’s scientific approach to evaluations and reproducibility of results. The virtual machines will be archived on a permanent Static Analysis Symposium website to provide a record of past experiments and tools, allowing future research to better evaluate and contrast existing work.

Artifact submission is optional. More information can be found on the Call for Artifacts.

Review Process

SAS 2020 will use a lightweight double-blind reviewing process. Following this process means that reviewers will not see the authors’ names or affiliations as they initially review a paper. The authors’ names will then be revealed to the reviewers only once their reviews have been submitted.

To facilitate this process, submitted papers must adhere to the following:

  • Author names and institutions must be omitted and
  • References to the authors’ own related work should be in the third person (e.g., not “We build on our previous work …” but rather “We build on the work of …”). The purpose of this process is to help the reviewers come to an initial judgment about the paper without bias, not to make it impossible for them to discover the authors if they were to try. Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission, makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult, or interferes with the process of disseminating new ideas. For example, important background references should not be omitted or anonymized, even if they are written by the same authors and share common ideas, techniques, or infrastructure. Authors should feel free to disseminate their ideas or draft versions of their paper as they normally would. For instance, authors may post drafts of their papers on the web or give talks on their research ideas.

Authors will be able to read reviews and respond to them as appropriate during the author response period.

Radhia Cousot Award

The program committee will select a paper for the Radhia Cousot Young Researcher Best Paper Award, in memory of Radhia Cousot, and her fundamental contributions to static analysis, as well as being one of the main promoters and organizers of the SAS series of conferences.

As in previous years, we encourage authors to submit a virtual machine image containing any artifacts and evaluations presented in the paper. The goal of the artifact submissions is to strengthen our field’s scientific approach to evaluations and reproducibility of results. The virtual machines will be archived on a permanent Static Analysis Symposium website to provide a record of past experiments and tools, allowing future research to better evaluate and contrast existing work.

Artifact submission is optional. We accept only virtual machine images that can be processed with VirtualBox. The artifact should come with a virtual machine (VM) image and step-by-step instructions:

  • Virtual machine image: The VM image must be bootable and contain all the necessary libraries installed. Please ensure that the VM image can be processed with VirtualBox. When preparing your artifact, please make it light as possible.
  • Step-by-step instructions: It should clearly explain how to reproduce the results that support your paper’s conclusions. We encourage the authors to have easy-to-run scripts. Also, you should explain how to interpret the output of the artifact. Please provide an estimated execution time for each instruction.

The artifact submission is handled via Easychair. Please follow the instructions below to submit your artifact:

  • Make the VM image and the instruction document into single compressed archive file using zip or gzip. Use your paper number for the name of the archive file.
  • Upload the archive file to well-known storage service such as Dropbox or Google Drive and get the sharable link of it.
  • Run a checksum function with the archive file and make a text file that contains the link to the archive file and the checksum the result.
  • Submit the file via the specific submission page.
