                             Call for Papers 

                The 16th International Static Analysis Symposium 
                                (SAS 2009) 
                       9-11 August 2009, Los Angeles, CA 
                          (co-located with LICS 2009)

             Venue: UCLA, University of California, Los Angeles

Static Analysis is increasingly recognized as a fundamental tool for
program verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program
understanding, and software maintenance. The series of Static Analysis
Symposia has served as the primary venue for presentation of
theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area. The
Sixteenth International Static Analysis Symposium (SAS 2009) will be
held in Los Angeles, CA, USA. Previous symposia were held in Valencia,
Kongens Lyngby, Seoul, London, Verona, San Diego, Madrid, Paris, Santa
Barbara, Venezia, Pisa, Paris, Aachen, Glasgow, and Namur.

SAS 2009 will be co-located with LICS 2009, 24th IEEE Symposium on Logic
in Computer Science. SAS and LICS will have a shared session with an
invited speaker. Last time SAS and LICS were co-located was in 2000 in
Santa Barbara.

The technical programme for SAS 2009 will consist of invited lectures
and presentations of refereed papers. Contributions are welcomed on all
aspects of static analysis, including, but not limited to:

       abstract domains                 abstract interpretation
       abstract testing                 bug detection
       data flow analysis               model checking
       new applications                 program transformation
       program verification             security analysis
       theoretical frameworks           type checking

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent,
constraint, functional, imperative, logic and object-oriented
programming. Survey papers, that present some aspect of the above topics
with a new coherence, and application papers, that describe experience
with industrial applications, are also welcomed.  Papers must describe
original work, be written and presented in English, and must not
substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are
simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with refereed

Paper submissions should not exceed 15 pages in LNCS format, excluding
bibliography and well-marked appendices. Program committee members are
not required to read the appendices, and thus papers must be
intelligible without them.  Submitted papers will be judged on the basis
of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. They
should clearly identify what has been accomplished and why it is
significant.  The proceedings is planned to be published by
Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

     SAS 2009 will be hosted by UCLA, University of California, Los
     Angeles.  We have reserved inexpensive sleeping rooms on the UCLA
     campus, near the building in which the conference will take
     place. Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is 15 miles from the
     conference site. Los Angeles has attractions such as Sunset
     Boulevard, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica Pier, The Hollywood Walk of
     Fame, Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Dodger Stadium.
