Static Analysis is increasingly recognized as a fundamental tool for high performance implementations and verification of programming languages and systems. The series of Static Analysis Symposia has served as the primary venue for presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area.

The Fourteenth International Static Analysis Symposium (SAS 2007) will be held in Lyngby Denmark; previous symposia were held in Seoul, London, Verona, San Diego, Madrid, Paris, Santa Barbara, Venezia, Pisa, Paris, Aachen, Glasgow, and Namur. SAS 2007 will be co-located with LOPSTR 2007 - The International Symposium on Logic-based Program Synthesis and Transformation and PLID 2007 - The International Workshop on Programming Language Interference and Dependence.


The technical programme for SAS 2007 will consist of invited lectures, tutorials, panels, presentations of refereed papers, poster sessions and software demonstrations. Contributions are welcome on all aspects of Static Analysis, including, but not limited to:

abstract domains   abstract interpretation
abstract testing   compiler optimisations
control flow analysis   data flow analysis
model checking   program specialization
security analysis   theoretical analysis frameworks
type based analysis   verification systems

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 from a new perspective, and application papers, that describe experience with industrial applications, are also welcome. 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 proceedings.

Invited Speakers

Alan Mycroft (Cambridge University, UK)
Hardware-oriented program properties
Frank Tip (IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, USA)
Refactoring using type constraints
Michael Codish (Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel)
Proving Termination with (Boolean) Satisfaction

Submission Information

Submitted papers should be at most 15 pages formatted in LNCS style (excluding bibliography and well-marked appendices not intended for publication). Program committee members are not required to read the appendices, and thus papers should be intelligible without them. The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (see for the LNCS author instructions). Adhering to that style already in the submission is strongly encouraged. Papers should be submitted either in PostScript or PDF format and they should be interpretable by Ghostscript or Acrobat Reader.
The submission procedure is in two stages: Making the deadline for submission of abstracts a week early allows the programme committee to start work before full versions are available. Obviously, there is no need to wait with submission of the full version until the final deadline. Submission of an abstract implies no obligation to submit a full version; abstracts with no corresponding full versions by the final deadline will be treated as withdrawn.

The proceedings of the Conference will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Submissions must be in English and authors should ensure that papers are formatted according to the LNCS format (see author's instructions given on

Submission must be send through the web submission system. The copyright form for SAS 2007 is available here.


Symposium Venue

The conference takes place at the Technical University of Denmark in Kongens Lyngby, which is situated 15 km north of the center of Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.
