Tools for Automatic Program AnalysiS (TAPAS 2010)

A SAS 2010 satellite workshop.

Date: 17 September 2010.

Venue: Palais des Congrès (Exhibition and Conference Center), Perpignan, France.

New: Online version of slides


List of accepted papers


In the last ten years, a wide range of static analysis tools have emerged, some of which are currently in industrial use or are well beyond the advanced prototype level. Many impressive practical results have been obtained, which allow complex properties be proved or checked in a fully or semi automatic way, even in the context of complex software developments. In parallel, the techniques to design and implement static analysis tools have improved significantly. This workshop is intended to promote discussions between specialists in all areas of program analysis and program analyzers implementation and static analysis tools users.


The technical programme for TAPAS 2010 will consist of invited lectures and presentations of refereed papers.

We welcome contributions on all aspects of static analysis tools including, but not limited to:

  • design and implementation of static analysis tools
  • components of static analysis tools (front-ends, abstract domains, etc)
  • integration of static analyzers
  • experience reports on the use of static analyzers
  • challenges, such as new properties to address or bottlenecks to overcome


Please visit the submission website. The website is powered by EasyChair, thanks to Andrei Voronkov.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by the program committee.

Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages including bibliography, and follow the ENTCS guidelines (http://www.entcs.org/prelim.html). Submitted papers may include, in addition, an appendix containing technical details, which reviewers may read or not, at their discretion.

Papers must be written and presented in English, and describe original work that does not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal, conference, or workshop with refereed proceedings.
