ATVA 2006 --
Fourth International Symposium on 
Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis 
Beijing, China, 23-26 October 2006

ATVA 2006 is the fourth 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. Submissions reporting original contributions are solicited in all 
areas of automated verification and analysis. 

20 May 2006, submission deadline
10 July 2006, acceptance notification
1  August 2006, camera-ready copy
23 October - 26 October 2006, ATVA 2006

The scope of interest is intentionally kept broad; it includes:
(1) 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.
(2) 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
Following ATVA 2004 (LNCS 3299) and ATVA 2005 (LNCS 3707), we shall seek 
to publish the proceedings in the Springer LNCS series.  We shall also look 
for the possibility of a special issue in an established journal for
papers. A special issue of IJFCS (International Journal of Foundations of 
Computer Science, http://www.cs.ucsb.edu/~ijfcs/) consisting of invited 
papers and selected contributed papers from ATVA 2003 and ATVA 2004 has been
