* *** CALL FOR PAPERS *** *


The aim of SCAM is to bring together researchers and practitioners
working on theory, techniques and applications, which concern analysis
and/or manipulation of the source code of computer systems. While much
attention in the wider software engineering community is properly
directed towards other aspects of systems development and evolution,
such as specification, design and requirements engineering, it is the
source code that contains the only precise description of the behavior
of the system. The analysis and manipulation of source code thus
remains a pressing concern.

Abstract submission (full and frontiers papers): April 29, 2012
Papers submission (full and frontiers papers): May 04, 2012
Tool papers submission: May 31, 2012
Notification full and frontier papers: June 16, 2012
Notification tool papers: June 21, 2012
Camera ready submission: July 06, 2012
Working Conference: September 23 - 24, 2012

We welcome submission of *full papers* that describe original and
significant work in the field of source code analysis and
manipulation. SCAM explicitly solicits results from any theoretical
or technological domain that can be applied to the following or
similar topics:

- program transformation
- abstract interpretation
- program slicing
- source level software metrics
- decompilation
- source level testing and verification
- source level optimization
- program comprehension

SCAM also welcomes *short tool papers* that introduce tools for source
code analysis and manipulation. Tool papers should describe a concrete
source code analysis or manipulation tool that is available for
download and general use and can be run and demonstrated at the

Submitted papers should not be longer than 10 pages (6 pages for tool
papers). All papers submitted should follow IEEE Computer Society
Press Proceedings Author Guidelines. The papers should be submitted
electronically in PDF form via the conference web site.Submitted
papers must not have been previously published or concurrently
submitted for consideration elsewhere.

In addition to the main and tool tracks, SCAM 2012 solicits 2- page
*Frontiers position papers* describing a significantly new idea in the
theory, technology, application or engineering of source code analysis
and manipulation systems. Frontiers authors will join in an open panel
discussion of the frontiers of the area at the conference.

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings which will be
published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Best papers from SCAM
2012 will be considered for revision, extension, and publication in a
special issue of the Journal of Software: Evolution and Process.
