FMICS 2024:
29th International Conference on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems4
Colocated with FM 2024

Milan, Italy, 9-11 September 2024

The aim of the FMICS conference series is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. 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.


- Abstract submission: 25 April 2024
- Paper submission: 1 May 2024
- Notification: 10 June 2024
- Camera-ready version: 23 June 2024
- Conference: 9-11 September 2024


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, learning, optimization, 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, tool qualification, and certification).
- Transfer to industry and impact of adoption of formal methods on the development process and associated costs in industry.
- Application of formal methods in standardization and industrial forums.


Papers must describe 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 applications. 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 references) formatted according to the Springer author guidelines LNCS style. All submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the Programme Committee, which 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 PDF files using the EasyChair submission site.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series. Previous FMICS proceedings can be found on SpringerLink. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference as a registered participant.

Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers.


An monetary award sponsored by Springer will be given to the authors of the submission selected by the Program Committee as the best paper of FMICS 2024.


The Programme Committee of FMICS 2024 will invite a selection of accepted papers to submit extended versions to a special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer.
