ETAPS 2013: 16 - 24 March 2013, Rome, Italy
TACAS is a forum for researchers, developers and users interested in rigorously based tools and algorithms for the construction and analysis of systems. The conference serves to bridge the gaps between different communities that share common interests in, and techniques for, tool development and its algorithmic foundations. The research areas covered by such communities include but are not limited to formal methods, software and hardware verification, static analysis, programming languages, software engineering, real-time systems, communications protocols, and biological systems. The TACAS forum provides a venue for such communities at which common problems, heuristics, algorithms, data structures and methodologies can be discussed and explored. In doing so, TACAS aims to support researchers in their quest to improve the utility, reliability, flexibility and efficiency of tools and algorithms for building systems.
Tool descriptions and case studies with a conceptual message, as well as theoretical papers with clear relevance for tool construction are all encouraged. The specific topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to, the following:
See the common call for papers of ETAPS 2013 and specific TACAS instructions. Submit your paper via the TACAS 2013 author interface of Easychair.
Associated with TACAS '13 there will be a competition on software verification. TACAS '13 hosts the second such competition event with the goal to evaluate the technology transfer and compare state-of-the-art software verifiers with respect to effectiveness and efficiency.
