               11th ACM SIGPLAN/SIGSOFT Workshop on
    Program Analysis for Software Tools and Engineering (PASTE)
Seattle, WA - June 20, 2012, co-located with PLDI 2013


PASTE 2013 is the eleventh workshop in a series that brings together
the program analysis, software tools, and software engineering
communities to focus on applications of program analysis techniques in
software tools. PASTE 2013 will provide a forum for the presentation
of exciting research, empirical results, and new directions in areas
including (but not limited to):

* program analysis for program understanding, debugging, testing, and
   reverse engineering
* integration of program analysis into the software development and
   maintenance process
* user interfaces for software tools and software visualization
* applications of program analysis techniques
* analysis of program execution or program evolution
* integration of, or tradeoffs between, different analysis techniques
* issues in scaling analyses and user interfaces to deal with large

PASTE will be a true workshop, with research presentations, organized
discussions, opportunities for all attendees to make short
presentations, and ample time for debate.

Submission Categories

Regular papers: research papers that describe ongoing research or new
results. The page limit for this category is 8 pages. The entire paper
(including bibliography, appendices, related work discussion, etc.)
must fit within the 8-page limit.

Short papers: papers that discuss controversial issues in the field,
or describe interesting or thought-provoking ideas that are not yet
fully developed. The page limit for this category is 4 pages.

The program committee will select papers based on technical quality,
relevance to the PASTE community, and ability to inspire new research
and productive discussions at the workshop.

Submission Guidelines

Papers should not exceed the page limits and must follow the ACM
formatting guidelines. Submissions should be in PDF format, printable
on US Letter size paper. Papers that do not respect these requirements
or are submitted late will be summarily rejected.

Papers submitted to PASTE 2013 must be original work, must not
substantially duplicate previous work, and must not be under
simultaneous review elsewhere. Violation of any of these criteria will
be sufficient grounds for automatic rejection. Please consult the
relevant ACM policies and SIGPLAN policies. At least one author of
every accepted paper must register and attend the event to present
their work.

All accepted papers will be published by ACM, will appear in the ACM
Digital Library, and will be subject to ACM copyright. Authors of
accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright form; please
ensure with your employer that you will be authorized to transfer the
