        	The 11th ACM SIGPLAN International Workshop
    	on the State of the Art in Program Analysis (SOAP)
                      	Call for Papers

                    	June 2022
                 	Co-located with PLDI 2022

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, various analysis frameworks
have been developed to provide techniques for optimizing programs, ensuring code
quality, and assessing security and compliance.

SOAP 2022 aims to bring together the members of the program analysis community
to share new developments and shape new innovations in program analysis. For
SOAP 2022, 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, including tool demonstration submissions. 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.

Possible submissions include, but are not limited to:
- A report on a novel implementation of a program analysis, with a focus on practical details or optimization techniques for obtaining precision and performance.
- A new research tool, data, and other artifacts, that showcase early implementations of novel program analysis concepts, as well as mature prototypes.
- A description of a new analysis component, for example, front-ends or abstract domains.
- A report describing an innovative tool built on top of an existing framework.
- A compelling use case for a feature that is not yet supported by existing analysis tools, with good examples and an informal design of the proposed feature.
- An idea paper proposing the integration of existing program analyses to answer interesting novel questions about programs, for example in IDEs.
- An experience report on the use of a program analysis framework.
- A description of a program analysis tool and screenshots of main parts of the demo.

Important Dates
8 March 2022: Submission deadline
21 April 2022: Author notification
5 May 2022: Camera ready deadline
June 2022: Workshop

Submission Details
Submissions should be 4 to 6 pages long and should be formatted according
to the two-column ACM proceedings format. Each reference must list all authors of
the paper. The citations should be in numerical style, e.g., [52].

Templates for ACM format are available for Microsoft Word and LaTeX at https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/__;!!IBzWLUs!Gl-Qbh0p2cMcJ58xN79UfkkXDnktzApzCOuGmWiYFUOUt3vtxpPxuzS5lSQwxsaKILY5Siow5pcncA$ . The preprint template should be set to use 10pt font and ‘numbers’ to ensure numerical style citations, that is: \documentclass[10pt, numbers]{sigplanconf}.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format at the EasyChair submission
site: https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=soap2022__;!!IBzWLUs!Gl-Qbh0p2cMcJ58xN79UfkkXDnktzApzCOuGmWiYFUOUt3vtxpPxuzS5lSQwxsaKILY5SipC945zvw$ .
