Proceedings of the Static Analysis Summit

This is the proceeding of a summit held in June 2006 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). This Static Analysis Summit is one of a series of meetings in the NIST Software Assurance Measurement and Tool Evaluation (SAMATE) project. This summit convened researchers, developers, and government and industrial users to explore the state of the art in software static analysis tools and techniques with an emphasis on software security. It is also served as a prelude to an international summit in Spring 2007. This proceeding includes the ten papers presented, the keynote presentation, and discussion of a next summit.
