Message SPIN 2007
14th International SPIN Workshop on Model Checking of Software
                  July 1-3, 2007, Berlin, Germany
                     (affiliated with CAV '2007)


Call for Papers


The 14th edition of the SPIN workshop series aims at bringing together
practitioners and researchers interested in state space based techniques
for the validation and analysis of software systems.
The workshop focuses on techniques based on explicit representations of
state spaces, as implemented in the SPIN model checker and other tools,
or techniques based on combination of explicit with other
representations. One of the main goals of the workshop is to encourage
interactions and exchanges of ideas with all related areas in
software engineering.

The workshop will be held as a satellite event of CAV 2007, the
19-th edition of the Computer Aided Verification conference.
The first SPIN workshop was held in Montreal in 1995. Since 1996,
SPIN workshops have been organized each year as a more or less
closely affiliated event with bigger conferences. An overview of
the previous SPIN workshops can be found at

Workshop Specific Topics

We encourage submission of works which include but are not limited to
the following topics:

* Algorithms for state space based verification
* Innovative implementation techniques
* Tool descriptions (full paper, no tool demonstration)
* Manual or automatic modeling of systems for state space tools
* Manual or automatic derivation of properties that are to be checked of the systems
* Techniques for alleviating state explosion
* Techniques for dealing with infinite state spaces and infinite families of systems
* Techniques for dealing with timed or probabilistic systems
* Derivation of code, test cases, or other useful material from state spaces
* Innovative or otherwise particularly significant case studies
* Theoretical results on the limits and possibilities of state space methods
* Unpublished, insightful surveys or historical accounts on topics of relevance
to SPIN workshops
* Directed model checking and accelerated error detection
* Combinations of artificial intelligence techniques and model checking
* Short tool presentations

Solicited Contributions

With the exception of survey and history papers,
the papers should contain original work which
has not been submitted or accepted for publication elsewhere.
Submissions should adhere to the LNCS format.

We solicit two kind of papers:

*Technical Papers no longer than 18 pages. All accepted technical papers will be
included in the proceedings.

*Tool Presentations. This kind of submissions should consist of
two parts. The first part is at most 5 page description of the tool.
If accepted, this part will be published in the workshop proceedings.
The second part should describe an informal plan for an oral presentation
of the tool. This part will not be included in the proceedings.

Submissions and Publication

The workshop proceedings will appear in the Springer-Verlag
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. After the workshop,
authors of some of the best papers will be invited to submit extended
versions for a special special section of
the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer (STTT).
