Third International Workshop on
Verification and Program Transformation
April 11th, 2015, London, UK
Co-Located with the 18th European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS 2015)
The Proceedings of this Workshop have been published as EPTCS 199
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working in the fields of Program Verification and Program Transformation.
There is a great potential for beneficial interactions between these two fields because:
The workshop will provide a forum where researchers from these fields may interact and foster new developments.
The workshop solicits research, position, application, and system description papers with a special emphasis on case studies, demonstrating viability of the interactions between the research fields of program transformation and program verification in a broad sense. Also papers in related areas, such as program testing and program synthesis are welcomed.
The workshop offers twofold benefits for the verification community. On the one hand it will rise awareness of and stimulate the development of novel verification methods and techniques. On the other hand it will draw attention of the community to the novel and challenging verification problems and research opportunities.
The workshop will be the third in the series after the First VPT 2013 workshop affiliated with CAV 2013 (held on 13.07-14.07, St. Petersburg, Russia) and the second VPT 2014 affiliated with CAV 2014 and VSL 2014 (held on 17.07-18.07, Vienna, Austria).
Call for Papers
Topics of Interest
include, but are not limited to:
Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper in PDF, formatted in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science LaTeX Style (http://style.eptcs.org/), via the Easychair submission website for VPT 2015 (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vpt2015).
Papers must describe original work that has not been published, nor is presently submitted, to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings. Also papers that already appeared in unpublished or informally published workshop proceedings may be submitted (please contact the PC co-chairs in case of questions).
Each submission must include on its first page the paper title; authors and their affiliations; contact author's email; abstract; and three to four keywords that will be used to assist the PC in selecting appropriate reviewers for the paper. Page numbers should appear on the manuscript to help the reviewers in writing their report.
Submissions should not exceed 15 pages including references but excluding well-marked appendices not intended for publication. Reviewers are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without them.
Original accepted papers will be published in a volume of the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer (EPTCS) series.
Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper in PDF, formatted in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science LaTeX Style (http://style.eptcs.org/), via the Easychair submission website for VPT2015-EPTCS (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=vpt2015eptcs).
Submissions should not exceed 25 pages including references.
Authors should follow the instructions given on the web-page http://info.eptcs.org/ .
If the workshop attracts sufficiently many high quality papers, a special issue of a journal on the topic of the workshop will be considered. The special issue will be open to high quality papers accepted for presentation in previous/past editions of the workshop.
