INTRODUCTION
============
ATVA 2007 is the fifth in the series of symposia on Automated Technology for
Verification and Analysis. The purpose of ATVA is to promote research on
theoretical and practical aspects of automated analysis, verification and
synthesis in East Asia by providing a forum for interaction between the regional
and the international research communities and industry in the field. The first
three ATVA symposia were held in 2003, 2004 and 2005 in Taipei, and ATVA 2006
was held in Beijing.

The Proceedings of ATVA 2007 will be published by Springer as a volume in the
LNCS series. Submissions reporting original contributions are solicited in all
areas of automated verification and analysis. Please visit the ATVA 2007 Web
site for details not found in this CFP.

SCOPE
=====
The scope of interest is intentionally kept broad; it includes :

   - Theory useful for providing designers with automated support for obtaining
correct software or hardware systems, including both functional and non
functional aspects, such as: theory on (timed) automata, Petri-nets, concurrency
theory, compositionality, model-checking, automated theorem proving, synthesis,
performance analysis, correctness-by-construction results, infinite state
systems, abstract interpretation, decidability results, parametric analysis or
synthesis.

   - Applications of theory in engineering methods and particular domains and
handling of practical problems occurring in tools, such
as: analysis and verification tools, synthesis tools, reducing complexity of
verification by abstraction, improved representations, handling user level
notations, such as UML, practice in industry applications to hardware, software
or real-time and embedded systems. Case studies, illustrating the usefulness of
tools or a particular approach are also welcome.

Theory papers should be motivated by practical problems and applications should
be rooted in sound theory. Of particular interest are algorithms on one hand and
methods and tools for integrating formal approaches into industrial practice.
Special care should be taken as well to present papers in such a way that they
are accessible not only to specialists, that is, jargon need to be defined and
intuitive interpretation provided for theories.

SUBMISSIONS
===========
A submitted paper must contain original contributions, clearly written in
English, and include comparison with related work. The authors are advised to
prepare their manuscripts using the LNCS style. Each paper should be no more
than 15 pages long and be submitted electronically via the ATVA 2007 Web site.
Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not allowed.
