Conference aims

The aim of this working conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on theory, techniques and applications that concern analysis and/or manipulation of the source code of software systems. The term “source code” refers to any fully executable description of a software system, such as machine code, (very) high level languages and executable graphical representations of systems. The term “analysis” refers to any (semi-)automated procedure that yields insight into source code, while “manipulation” refers to any automated or semi-automated procedure that takes and returns source code.

While much attention in the wider software engineering community is (rightfully!) 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 behaviour of a system. Hence, the analysis and manipulation of source code remains a pressing concern for which SCAM 2013 solicits high quality paper submissions.

Covered topics and paper formats:

We welcome the submission of high quality papers that describe original and significant work in the field of source code analysis and manipulation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

program transformation and refactoring
static and dynamic analysis
source level software metrics
bug location and prediction
security and vulnerability analysis
source level testing and verification
concern, concept and feature mining
program comprehension
bad smell detection
abstract interpretation
program slicing
source level optimization
green source code
and much more!

Research Track

SCAM explicitly solicits results from any theoretical or technological domain that can be applied to these and similar topics. Submitted research papers are limited to 10 pages. Papers must be clearly marked as a research paper. All papers submitted should follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines. The papers should be submitted electronically via the conference web site: (select the ”SCAM 2013 Research Track”). Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the programme committee, judging the paper on its novelty, quality, evaluation and scientific rigour. Note that submitted papers should not have been published before, and should not have been submitted elsewhere in parallel to SCAM 2013.
