ATVA 2007 is the fifth in the series of symposia on Automated Technology for
Verification and Analysis. The purpose of ATVA is to promote research on
theoretical and practical aspects of automated analysis, verification and
synthesis in East Asia by providing a forum for interaction between the
regional and the international research communities and industry in the
field. The first three ATVA symposia were held in 2003, 2004 and 2005 in
Taipei, and ATVA 2006 was held in Beijing.

The Proceedings of ATVA 2007 will be published by Springer as a volume in
the LNCS series. Submissions reporting original contributions are solicited
in all areas of automated verification and analysis.  Please visit the ATVA
2007 Web site for details not found in this CFP.

The scope of interest is intentionally kept broad; it includes :

   - Theory useful for providing designers with automated support for
obtaining correct software or hardware systems, including both functional
and non functional aspects, such as: theory on (timed) automata, Petri-nets,
concurrency theory, compositionality, model-checking, automated theorem
proving, synthesis, performance analysis, correctness-by-construction
results, infinite state systems, abstract interpretation, decidability
results, parametric analysis or synthesis.

   - Applications of theory in engineering methods and particular domains and
handling of practical problems occurring in tools, such
as: analysis and verification tools, synthesis tools, reducing complexity of
verification by abstraction, improved representations, handling user level
notations, such as UML, practice in industry applications to hardware,
software or real-time and embedded systems. Case studies, illustrating the
usefulness of tools or a particular approach are also welcome.

Theory papers should be motivated by practical problems and applications
should be rooted in sound theory. Of particular interest are algorithms on
one hand and methods and tools for integrating formal approaches into
industrial practice. Special care should be taken as well to present papers
in such a way that they are accessible not only to specialists, that is,
jargon need to be defined and intuitive interpretation provided for

A submitted paper must contain original contributions, clearly written in
English, and include comparison with related work.  The authors are advised
to prepare their manuscripts using the LNCS style.  Each paper should be no
more than 15 pages long and be submitted electronically via the ATVA 2007
Web site.  Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not allowed.
