Mon 16 - Sat 21 July 2018 Amsterdam, Netherlands

Static and dynamic analysis techniques and tools for Java and other programming languages have received widespread attention for a long time. The application domains of these analyses range from core libraries to modern technologies such as web services and Android applications. Over time, analysis frameworks, such as Soot, WALA, Chord, DOOP, and Soufflé, have been developed to better support techniques for optimizing programs, ensuring code quality, and assessing security and compliance.

The Soot community brought together its members and other researchers by organizing the International Workshop on the State Of the Art in Java Program Analysis (SOAP), since 2012 in conjunction with PLDI. The presentations and discussions have helped share new developments and shape new innovations in program analysis. SOAP 2018 will enhance that positive experience with a broadened scope to also emphasize other analysis tools than Soot and other programming languages than Java.

For SOAP 2018, we invite contributions and inspirations from researchers and practitioners working with program analysis. We are particularly interested in exciting analysis framework ideas, innovative designs, and analysis techniques, including preliminary results of work in progress. We will also focus on the state of the practice for program analysis by encouraging submissions by industrial participants. We want to see your tools – tool demonstration submissions are encouraged. The workshop agenda will continue its tradition of lively discussions on extensions of existing frameworks, development of new analyses and tools, and how program analysis is used in real-world scenarios.

The workshop will take one day and will feature invited talks by leading members of the program analysis community, presentations of all accepted refereed papers, and time for open discussion.
