SMT 2014 – 12th International Workshop on Satisfiability Modulo Theories
July 17-18, 2014 · Vienna, Austria


Important Dates

Submission deadline: April 13th, 2014 EXTENDED to April 23rd, 2014
Notification: May 20th, 2014
Camera-ready version: May 27th, 2014
Workshop: July 17th-18th, 2014


Determining the satisfiability of first-order formulas modulo background theories, known as the Satisfiability Modulo Theories (SMT) problem, has proven to be an enabling technology for verification, synthesis, test generation, compiler optimization, scheduling, and other areas. The success of SMT techniques depends on the development of both domain-specific decision procedures for each background theory (e.g., linear arithmetic, the theory of arrays, or the theory of bit-vectors) and combination methods that allow one to obtain more versatile SMT tools, usually leveraging Boolean satisfiability (SAT) solvers. These ingredients together make SMT techniques well-suited for use in larger automated reasoning and verification efforts.

Aims and Scope

The goal of the SMT Workshop is to bring together both researchers and users of SMT technology and provide them with a forum for presenting and discussing both new theoretical ideas and implementation and evaluation techniques. Topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Decision procedures and theories of interest
  • Combinations of decision procedures
  • Novel implementation techniques
  • Benchmarks and evaluation methodologies
  • Applications and case studies
  • Theoretical results

Papers on pragmatic aspects of implementing and using SMT tools, as well as novel applications of SMT, are especially encouraged.

Paper Submissions

Three categories of submissions are invited:

  • Extended abstracts: we strongly encourage the submission of preliminary reports of work in progress. They may range in length from very short (a couple of pages) to the full 10 pages, and will be judged based on the expected level of interest for the SMT community. They will be included in the informal proceedings.
  • Original papers: contain original research (simultaneous submissions are not allowed) and sufficient detail to assess the merits and relevance of the submission. For papers reporting experimental results, authors are strongly encouraged to make their data available.
  • Presentation-only papers: describe work relevant for the SMT community that has recently been published or submitted at other venues. They will not be included in the proceedings.

Papers in all three categories will be peer-reviewed. Original papers should not exceed 10 pages, should be prepared in LaTeX using the easychair.cls class file, and submitted in standard-conforming PDF. Technical details may be included in an appendix to be read at the reviewers' discretion.

To submit a paper, go to the EasyChair SMT page and follow the instructions there.
