                              CALL FOR PAPERS
                         Software Verification Track
                      ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
                      April 23-27, 2006, Dijon, France
1. SAC 2006
For the last twenty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has
been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists,
computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from
around the world. SAC 2006 is sponsored by the ACM Special 
Interest Group on Applied Computing, and is hosted this year by
Bourgogne University, Dijon, France. 
2. Technical track on software verification
In the next decade the software industry will have to face its
responsibility imposed by a computer-dependent society. Since software
is increasing deployed in safety critical applications, correctness and
reliability are becoming issues of utmost importance. Consequently,
software verification will be a grand challenge for both academic world
and computer industry. 
The track will focus on theoretical foundations, practical methods as
well as case studies for verification of conventional and embedded
software. We welcome papers that describe work on combinations of formal
verification and program analysis techniques. Tool papers and 
case studies which report on advances in verifying large software
systems are particularly sought. The list of topics includes but not
limited to
   .  Tools, and case studies for large scale software verification
   .  Static analysis/Abstract interpretation for verification 
   .  Model checking and deductive techniques for software verification
   .  Role of declarative programming languages (such as Prolog) for 
infinite state software verification. 
   .  Proof techniques for verifying specific classes of software  
   .  Integration of testing and run-time monitoring with formal
   .  Validation of UML diagrams, and/or requirement specifications
   .  Software certification and proof carrying code
   .  Integration of formal verification into software development
3. Guidelines for paper submission
Each paper must not exceed 4,000 words and should not be more than 15
pages long using 11 point font and 1 inch margins on all four sides on
letter size paper. Papers that fail to comply with length limitations
risk rejection. Each submitted paper will be fully referenced and
undergo a blind review process. Author(s) must not be identified in the
submissions, either explicitly or by implication. Before submitting
paper, author(s) should submit a separate cover page that includes
title, abstract, list of keywords, and list of authors with full names
and postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail
addresses. One of the authors must be designated as the primary contact
person. Please upload the cover page via 
http://milo.cs.iupui.edu/sac2006/SubmitAbstract.aspx?TrackID=62. A
confirmation email with further instructions on paper submission will be
sent to the contact author. Please contact track chairs or Jeff Allen
(jallen at cs.iupui.edu) for any problems with submission. Authors of
accepted papers must submit an editorial revision of their papers that
must fit within five two-column pages following the ACM proceedings
format (an extra three extra pages may be available at additional cost
to the authors). At least one of the authors of an accepted paper must
register for the conference and present the paper. Accepted papers will
be published in the ACM SAC 2006 proceedings.
