The Static Analysis Symposia


Static Analysis is increasingly recognized as a fundamental tool for program verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program understanding, and software maintenance. The series of International Static Analysis Symposia (SAS) serves as the primary venue for presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area.


Contributions to the technical program for Static Analysis Symposia typically consist of invited lectures and presentations of refereed papers. While each edition is independent, traditionally contributions are welcome addressing any programming paradigm (including concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic, object-oriented, aspect, multi-core, distributed, GPU programming, ...) and 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

Next edition

The 21st International Static Analysis Symposium, SAS 2014, will be held September 11-13 in Munich, Germany.
