****************************************************************
The 26th International Conference on
Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems
(FMICS 2021)

****************************************************************

About
-------------------------
The aim of the FMICS conference series (http://fmics.inria.fr/) is to provide a forum for researchers 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.

FMICS 2021 is part of the QONFEST umbrella conference comprising:

- FMICS 2021: 26th International Conference on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems
- CONCUR 2021: 32nd International Conference on Concurrency Theory
- FORMATS 2021: 19th International Conference on Formal Modeling and Analysis of Timed Systems
- QEST 2021: 18th International Conference on Quantitative Evaluation of SysTems

QONFEST takes place from August 23 to August 27, 2021.

Topics
-------------------------
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.


New this year! Special track papers on Formal Methods for Blockchain-based Smart Contracts
-------------------------
We invite submissions in topics related to the formal specification, analysis, and verification of blockchain-based smart contracts. For this occasion, the Program Committee has been enlarged with experts from the blockchain domain. Formatting instructions and the review procedure are the same as the ones for regular papers. However, the authors will need to specifically indicate their interest in the special track during the submission. Papers accepted for the special track will be included in a special session at FMICS 2021 along with a panel on this topic, while they will be published in the conference proceedings together with papers accepted for the regular track.

Submission and Publication
-------------------------
We welcome contributions of different categories:

- Regular papers that describe original research work and results. Length: 15 pages + 2 pages of references.
- Short papers that describe work-in-progress, or positions on the future of formal methods. Length: 6 pages + 2 pages of references.
- Tool papers that describe software artefacts. The paper must contain a link to a publicly available video of at most 10 minutes length. Length: 6 pages + 2 pages of references.
- Journal-first papers that summarize a paper recently published in a journal and not yet presented in a conference. The main aim of this category is to allow authors present archived work in a public forum. The original journal paper should have been published between January 1st, 2020 and the date of submission. Length: 2 pages + 1 page of references.

With the exception of the journal-first category, 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 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-Deastudy papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical results (such as scalability of methods) or provide specific motivation for further research and development.

Submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS style (Springer). All submissions will be reviewed by the Programme Committee members 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: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fmics2021

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series. Contributions of the journal-first category will not be included in the proceedings.

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. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference as a registered participant.

Best paper award: A Springer-sponsored award will be presented to the authors of the submission selected by the Program Committee as the FMICS 2021 Best Paper.

Special issue: The Program Committee of FMICS 2021 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 (STTT).
