------------------------------------------------ FMICS 2019: the 24th International Conference on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems
Co-located with CONCUR and FORMATS
Aug 30-31, 2019, Amsterdam, The Netherlands https://fmics2019.fsa.win.tue.nl ------------------------------------------------
The aim of the FMICS conference series is to provide a forum for researchers who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. In particular, FMICS brings together scientists and engineers who are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS conference series also strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.
Important Dates (AoE)
Abstract submission: 1 May 2019 (extended; was 19 April) Paper submission: 3 May 2019 (extended; was 26 April) Notifications: 5 June 2019 Camera ready: 19 June 2019 Conference: 30-31 August 2019
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research directions. - Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis, certification, debugging, descriptions, learning, optimisation and transformation of complex, distributed, real-time, embedded, mobile and autonomous systems. - Verification and validation methods (model checking, theorem proving, SAT/SMT constraint solving, abstract interpretation, etc.) that address shortcomings of existing methods with respect to their industrial applicability (e.g., scalability and usability issues). - Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process and associated costs. Application of formal methods in standardisation and industrial forums.
Keynote Speakers (confirmed)
- Jaco van de Pol (Aarhus University and University of Twente) - Holger Hermanns (Saarland University)
Submission and Publication
Papers must describe authors' original research work and results. Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or conference with published proceedings and must not be concurrently submitted to any other peer-reviewed workshop, symposium, conference or archival journal. Any partial overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.
Submissions should clearly motivate relevance to industrial application. Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical results (such as scalability of methods) or provide specific motivation for further research and development.
Papers should not exceed 15 pages (excluding max. 2 pages of references) formatted according to the LNCS style (Springer). All submissions will be reviewed by the Programme Committee who will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and applicability of the presented ideas and results.
Papers must be written in English and should be submitted as Portable Document Format (PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site:
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in their LNCS series.
