Title: Call for Papers - SOAP 2012: 1st International Workshop on the State Of the Art in Java Program Analysis

1st International Workshop on the State Of the Art in Java Program Analysis (SOAP 2012) Co-located with PLDI 2012, June 2012 in Beijing http://www.sable.mcgill.ca/soap/

WORKSHOP TOPIC Soot and other analysis frameworks have enabled hundreds of users to carry out research in static analysis of Java. As Soot enters its second decade, the first International Workshop on the State Of the Art in Java Program Analysis (SOAP) will bring together the thriving Soot community and help catalyze the future development of the Soot framework. We anticipate that SOAP will help spur discussions and collaborations between different groups using Soot and other compiler frameworks. Although the focus of this workshop will be on the Soot framework, we warmly welcome cross-pollination from other compilers and analysis frameworks, for instance in the form of ideas and design discussions. The agenda for SOAP will also include discussions and work on integrating external contributions into the main Soot framework, as well as explorations of potential future extensions to Soot.
