Call for papers: 21st IEEE International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (SCAM)

07-Jun-2021

SCAM aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working on theory, techniques and applications which concern analysis and/or manipulation of the source code of computer systems. For the purpose of clarity ‘source code’ is taken to mean any fully executable description of a software system. It is therefore so-construed as to include machine code, very high level languages and executable graphical representations of systems. The term ‘analysis’ is taken to mean any automated or semi auto...
