VMCAI provides a forum for researchers from the communities of
Verification, Model Checking, and Abstract Interpretation,
facilitating interaction, cross-fertilization, and advancement of
hybrid methods. VMCAI'09 is co-located with the POPL'09 conference.

The program of VMCAI'09 will consist of invited lectures, tutorials,
refereed research papers, and tool demonstrations. Research
contributions can report new results as well as experimental
evaluations and comparisons of existing techniques. Topics include,
but are not limited to:

     program verification          program certification
     model checking                debugging techniques
     abstract interpretation       abstract domains
     static analysis               type systems
     deductive methods             optimization

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including concurrent,
constraint, functional, imperative, logic and object-oriented programming.
Papers must describe original work, be written and presented in English,
must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that
are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with refereed
proceedings. The proceedings will  be published by Springer in
the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

The page limit for submissions is 15 pages in Springer's LNCS format.
Additional material may be placed in an appendix, to be read at the
of the reviewers. Formatting style files can be found at:
