2nd Workshop on Synthesis
July 13th and July 14th, 2013, Saint Petersburg, Russia
Co-located with the 25th International Conference on Computer Aided Verification
A natural progress from checking the correctness of code is to synthesize software from its formal specification. While it is widely believed that, due to complexity/undecidability issues, software synthesis cannot completely replace programmers, it can still assist the process of designing the intricate pieces of code that most programmers find challenging.
Synthesis has recently progressed substantially and is starting to become a viable research area with vast potential for practical applications.
This kind of research exists well alongside conferences on formal methods and verification, such as CAV, which aim at improving the reliability of systems.
This workshop aims at bringing together and providing an open platform for researchers interested in synthesis.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- synthesis algorithms
- synthesis tools
- complexity and impossibility results for synthesis
- case studies of software or hardware synthesis
Proceedings & Submission Guidelines
- regular papers (max. 16 pages in EPTCS style),
- tool papers (max. 7 pages in EPTCS style),
- work-in-progress presentations, and
- presentations of relevant but already published work.
Submitted regular and tool papers must be original and unpublished. Regular and
tool papers accepted for presentation at the workshop will
appear in the Electronic Proceedings
in Theoretical Computer Science series; hence, submissions
must be prepared in LaTeX using the
EPTCS macro package.
Submission accepted for presentation must be presented at the
workshop by at least one of the authors.
Extended versions of selected papers (including presentations) will appear in a special issue of Acta Informatica.
- Manuscripts of full research papers are limited to a maximum of 16 pages (excluding technical appendices) in PDF format (EPTCS style).
- Manuscripts describing short tool papers are limited to a maximum of 7 pages in PDF (EPTCS style).
- Presentations of relevant results submitted to other forums, already published, or on not yet finished work in progress will not be considered for the final workshop proceedings, but will be considered for the special issue. Manuscripts of presentations are limited to a maximum of 10 pages.
