PAS 2015 will provide a forum for researchers and software developers
actively involved or interested in developing, using, and applying
methods and software tools of symbolic computation for program
verification and automated debugging to exchange ideas and views, to
review the state of the art and discuss prospects, to present research
results and experiments,  and to build up contacts for future
cooperation. The scientific program of the seminar will feature
invited talks and contributed presentations.

Specific topics for PAS 2015 include (but are not limited to):

  - Theories and methodologies for program verification and testing
  - Model checking, fault locating and program repairing
  - Symbolic computation and automated reasoning for program verification
  - Termination, correctness and complexity analysis of programs
  - Automated program synthesis and transformation
  - Logic and semantics for automated and algorithmic debugging
  - Program debugging paradigms and techniques
  - Symbolic constraint solving for verification and debugging
  - Tools, prototypes, empirical and case studies

The previous seminars PAS 2012 and PAS 2013 were held in Beijing, China,
and PAS 2014 was part of the Federated Logic Conference (FLoC) and the
Vienna Summer of Logic.


Potential participants of PAS 2015 are invited to submit first half-page
abstracts and then full papers or extended abstracts (3-5 pages) describing
their work to be presented at the seminar. The submitted full papers and
extended abstracts will be reviewed by the program committee for soundness
and relevance to the seminar. Submission of original research papers is
encouraged, while published material and work in progress will also be
considered for presentation at the seminar. Electronic submissions are
strongly preferred using EasyChair:


Accepted full papers and extended abstracts will be distributed at the
seminar. Authors of the full papers and extended abstracts accepted for
presentation at the seminar will be invited to submit their full and/or
revised papers for publication in the post-proceedings volume as a special
issue of the Journal of Symbolic Computation (JSC) after the meeting.
The submitted papers will be formally reviewed by external referees
according to the standard refereeing procedure of JSC.
