We solicit proposals for presentations related to the KLEE infrastructure and symbolic execution more generally. In particular, we welcome three types of contributions:

  1. Presentations of existing research papers or ongoing research work. If presenting an existing research paper, please provide a link to the paper. If the work builds upon KLEE, please be explicit about the connection.

  2. Presentations reporting the experience of using KLEE in a practical setting. Examples include the use of KLEE for testing open-source software, the use of KLEE in an industrial context, and the integration of KLEE within a larger system or tool.

  3. Tutorial presentations on various aspects of KLEE. Examples include explaining the memory model of KLEE, showing how to create a new partial solver in KLEE, explaining how to handle new LLVM intrinsics, or demonstrating the use of Kleaver, KLEE’s solver tool.

We estimate having 20- to 30-minute slots for presentations, but the exact duration will be decided depending on the number of accepted proposals.

A proposal consists of an extended abstract discussing the topic of the presentation, which should include:

  1. The title of the presentation, prefixed by “Presentation: “. For instance, “Presentation: A novel technique for improving KLEE”.

  2. A complete list of all co-authors involved in the topic presented (with the exception of tutorials on KLEE).

  3. A link to previously published work on this subject, if any.

  4. An explanation of the connections with KLEE, if any.

The extended abstract should have no more than two pages, including all text, figures, references, and appendices. We do not impose any specific format, as long as the text is easily readable. Submissions should be in PDF format. The workshop will have no proceedings, so the extended abstract is only used for evaluation purposes; the authors and titles will appear in the conference program.

The presentation proposals for Round 2 should be submitted on EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=klee2021

If accepted, at least one author should register for the conference before the early registration date.
