ATVA 2013

11th International Symposium on Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis

October 15 - 18, 2013, Hanoi, Vietnam

Satellite workshops: INFINITY 2013 and TTATT 2013

Update: ..., LNCS 8172 available online, see how to access here. Tutorials and Keynotes slides added.


The purpose of ATVA is to promote research on theoretical and practical aspects of automated analysis, verification and synthesis by providing a forum for interaction between the regional and the international research communities and industry in the field. The previous events were held in Taiwan - 2003-5, Beijing - 2006, Tokyo - 2007, Seoul - 2008, Macao - 2009, Singapore - 2010, Taiwan - 2011, and Thiruvananthapuram - 2012.

Call for Papers (text, pdf), Workshop Proposals (text)


ATVA 2013 solicits high quality submissions in areas related to the theory and practice of automated analysis and verification of hardware and software systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Formalisms for modeling hardware, software and embedded systems
  • Specification and verification of finite-state, infinite-state and parameterized system
  • Program analysis and software verification
  • Analysis and verification of hardware circuits, systems-on-chip and embedded systems
  • Analysis of real-time, hybrid, priced/weighted and probabilistic systems
  • Deductive, algorithmic, compositional, and abstraction/refinement techniques for analysis and verification
  • Analytical techniques for safety, security, and dependability
  • Testing and runtime analysis based on verification technology
  • Analysis and verification of parallel and concurrent hardware/software systems
  • Verification in industrial practice
  • Applications and case studies

Theory papers should preferably be motivated by practical problems, and applications should be based on sound theory and should solve problems of practical interest.


Submissions are invited in two categories: regular research papers and tool papers. Submitted papers must present original and unpublished work, and must not be concurrently submitted to any other conference or journal.

Regular paper submissions are restricted to 15 pages in Springer's LNCS format, and tool paper submissions are restricted to 4 pages in the same format.

Proofs and details omitted due to space constraints may be put in an appendix. Any such additional material will be read by reviewers/program committee members at their discretion. Authors are therefore urged to include details necessary for evaluation of the technical merit of their work within the prescribed page limits.

Tool papers must include information about a URL from where the tool can be downloaded or accessed on-line for evaluation. The URL must also contain a set of examples, and a user's manual that describes usage of the tool through examples. In case the tool needs to be downloaded and installed, the URL must also contain a document clearly giving instructions for installation of the tool on Linux/Windows/MacOS. Authors must upload PDF files of their papers through EasyChair.

Accepted papers in both categories will be published by Springer as a LNCS volume. At least one author of each accepted paper must also register for the conference and present the paper.

Workshop Proposals

ATVA 2013 invites submissions for workshop proposals on topics of interest to the ATVA series. The workshops will be either half day or one full day. Depending on the number of accepted workshops, the workshops will be scheduled either on October 14, or October 19, 2013.

All proposals should be sent by e-mail to the workshop chair, Quan Thanh Tho, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, e-mail: and
