Call for PapersThe goal of PASTE'02 is to bring together members of the program analysis, software tools, and software engineering communities to focus on applications of program analysis techniques in software tools. PASTE'02 will provide a forum for the presentation of exciting new research and empirical results in areas including (but not limited to):
PASTE'02 will be a true workshop, with a duration of 1 1/2 to 2 days. In addition to presentations of refereed papers, there will be several invited talks, organized discussions on areas of widespread interest, and ample time for general discussion and debate. Attendance is open, although enrollment will be capped at 80 people. Students are encouraged to attend and may apply for support from the Conference Attendance Program (http://www.cs.pitt.edu/~soffa/caps.html). A proceedings of invited and regular papers will be published by SIGSOFT or SIGPLAN.
We are soliciting papers in two distinct categories: (i) Short research papers and experience reports, which describe a new algorithm or problem approach, or which discuss ``what really works and what doesn't'' in a practical setting; (ii) Progress reports and position papers which describe interesting new ideas that are not yet fully developed, or discuss controversial issues in the field. The program committee will aim to select a program containing a mix of the best submitted papers in each of these categories. Papers in category (i) will be expected to have a somewhat higher degree of technical rigor than those in category (ii).
Prospective authors of regular research papers should submit a 4000 word full paper (i.e., not an extended abstract), not to exceed 6 pages using 10 point type, including figures and references. Prospective authors of progress reports or position papers should submit a 2000 word paper, not to exceed 3 pages using 10 point type, including figures and references. Papers should be formatted using ACM SIG templates. Submission of papers in PDF (prefered) or postscript format will be accepted at the PASTE submission page. Electronic submissions must be received on or before June 15, 2002.

Preliminary ProgramIn order to foster interaction between workshop participants PASTE sessions are scheduled with extra time to allow for discussion. Keynote sessions will have 20 minutes for questions and discussion following the 50 minute keynote presentations. Regular technical paper sessions will have an additional 20 minutes for discussion over and above the 5 minutes allocated for each of the 25 minute presentations in the session. Session chairs will decide how best to use the extra minutes in each of the sessions.
