7th Working Conference on Verified Software: Theories, Tools, and
July 18 - 19, 2015
San Francisco, California, USA

Co-located with 25th Conference on Computer Aided Verification

Full Paper Submission Deadline: April 27, 2015


The Seventh Working Conference on Verified Software: Theories, Tools,
and Experiments follows a successful inaugural working conference at
Zurich in 2005 followed by conferences in Toronto (2008), Edinburgh
(2010), Philadelphia (2012), Atherton (2013), and Vienna (2014). The
goal of this conference is to advance the state of the art in the
science and technology of software verification, through the
interaction of theory development, tool evolution, and experimental

We welcome submissions describing significant advances in the
production of verified software, i.e., software that has been
proved to meet its functional specifications.  We are
especially interested in submissions describing large-scale
verification efforts that involve collaboration, theory unification,
tool integration, and formalized domain knowledge.  We welcome papers
describing novel experiments and case studies evaluating verification
techniques and technologies.  Topics of interest include education,
requirements modeling, specification languages,
specification/verification case-studies, formal calculi, software
design methods, automatic code generation, refinement methodologies,
compositional analysis, verification tools (e.g., static analysis, dynamic
analysis, model checking, theorem proving, satisfiability), tool
integration, benchmarks, challenge problems, and integrated
verification environments.


Papers will be evaluated by at least three members of the
Program Committee. We are accepting both long (limited to 16 pages)
and short (limited to 10 pages) paper submissions, written in English.
Short submissions also cover Verification Pearls describing an
elegant proof or proof technique.  Submitted research papers and
system descriptions must be original and not submitted for publication

Research paper submissions must be in LNCS format and must
include a cogent and self-contained description of the ideas, methods,
results, and comparison to existing work.  Submissions of theoretical,
practical, and experimental contributions are equally encouraged,
including those that focus on specific problems or problem domains.

Papers should be submitted through:


Submissions that arrive late, are not in the proper format, or are too
long will not be considered.  The post-conference proceedings of VSTTE
2015 will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.  Authors
of accepted papers will be requested to sign a form transferring
copyright of their contribution to Springer-Verlag.  The use of LaTeX
and the Springer LNCS class files, obtainable
fromhttp://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html, is strongly


Accepted  papers will be  published as post-Proceedings, to
appear in Springer's Lectures Notes in Computer Science.
