25th Static Analysis Symposium
August 29th - August 31st, 2018, Freiburg, Germany


Static Analysis is widely recognized as a fundamental tool for program verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program understanding, and software maintenance. The series of Static Analysis Symposia has served as the primary venue for the presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area. The 25th Static Analysis Symposium, SAS 2018, will be held in Freiburg, Germany.
