Objectives and Scope

The joint conference FMOODS & FORTE is a forum for fundamental
research on theory and applications of distributed systems. The
conference solicits original contributions that advance the science
and technologies for distributed systems, with special interest
in the areas of:

* component- and model-based design
* object technology, modularity, software adaptation
* service-oriented, ubiquitous, pervasive, grid, cloud and mobile
computing systems
* software quality, reliability and security

The conference encourages contributions that combine theory and
practice and that exploit formal methods and theoretical foundations
to present novel solutions to problems arising from the development
of distributed systems. FMOODS & FORTE covers distributed computing
models and formal specification, testing and verification methods.
The application domains include all kinds of application-level
distributed systems, telecommunication services, Internet, embedded
and real time systems, as well as networking and communication
security and reliability.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Languages and Semantic Foundations: new modeling and language
concepts for distribution and concurrency, semantics for different
types of languages, including programming languages, modeling
languages, and domain specific languages; real-time and probability
aspects; type systems and behavioral typing

* Formal Methods and Techniques: design, specification, analysis,
verification, validation and testing of various types of distributed
systems including communications and network protocols,
service-oriented systems, and adaptive distributed systems

* Applications of Formal Methods: applying formal methods and
techniques for studying quality, reliability and
security of distributed systems, particularly web services,
multimedia and telecommunications systems

* Practical Experience with Formal Methods: industrial applications,
case studies and software tools for applying formal methods and
description techniques to the development and analysis of real
distributed systems

Proceedings and Submission guidelines

The FMOODS & FORTE 2011 conference calls for high quality papers presenting
research results and/or application reports related to the research areas in
conference scope.
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS
series. Proceedings will be made available at the conference.

All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication
elsewhere. Contributions should be submitted electronically in PDF via the
EasyChair system at the URL

Each paper will undergo a peer review of at least 3 anonymous reviewers.

The papers must be prepared using the SPRINGER LNCS style, available at the URL

Papers must not exceed 15 pages in length, including figures and references.
For referees' convenience, any additional material that may help assessing the
merits of the submission but not to be included in the final version, like some
detailed proofs, may be placed in a clearly marked appendix (not to be counted
in the page limit). Referees are at liberty to ignore the appendix, and papers must
be understandable without them.

Submissions not adhering to the above specified constraints may be rejected
immediately, without review.
