Automated Technology for Verification and Analysis
This volume contains the papers presented at ATVA 2007,the 5th International Symposium on Automated Technology for Veri?cation and Analysis, which was held onOctober22–25,2007atthe NationalCenter ofSciencesin Tokyo,Japan. The purpose of ATVA is to promote research on theoretical and practical aspects of automated analysis,veri?cationand synthesis in East Asia by prov- ing a forum for interaction between the regional and the international research communities and industry in the ?eld. The ?rst three ATVA symposia were held in 2003, 2004 and 2005 in Taipei, and ATVA 2006 was held in Beijing. Theprogramwasselectedfrom88submitted papers,with25countriesrep- sented among the authors. Of these submissions, 29 regular papers and 7 short papers were selected for inclusion in the program. In addition, the program included keynote talks and tutorials by Martin Abadi (University of California, Santa Cruz and Microsoft Research), Ken McMillan (Cadence Berkeley Labs), and Moshe Vardi (Rice University), and an invited talk by Atsushi Hasegawa (Renesas Technology). A workshop on Omega-Automata (OMEGA 2007) was organized in connection with the conference. ATVA 2007 was sponsored by the National Institute of Informatics, the Kayamori Foundation of Information Science Advancement, the Inoue Fo- dation for Science, and the Telecommunications Advancement Foundation. We are grateful for their support. We would like to thank the program committee and the reviewers for their hard work and dedication in putting together this program. We would like to thank the Steering Committee for their considerable help with the organization of the conference. We also thank Michihiro Koibuchi for his help with the local arrangements.
