Present CFP : 2022


FORMATS (International Conference on Formal Modeling and Analysis of Timed Systems) is an annual conference which aims to promote the study of fundamental and practical aspects of timed systems, and to bring together researchers from different disciplines that share interests in the modelling, design and analysis of timed computational systems. The conference aims to attract researchers interested in real-time issues in hardware design, performance analysis, real-time software, scheduling, semantics and verification of real-timed, hybrid and probabilistic systems.

Typical topics include (but are not limited to):

* Foundations and Semantics: Theoretical foundations of timed systems, languages and models (e.g., timed automata, timed Petri nets, hybrid automata, timed process algebra, max-plus algebra, probabilistic models).

* Methods and Tools: Techniques, algorithms, data structures, and software tools for analyzing timed systems and resolving temporal constraints (e.g., scheduling, worst-case execution time analysis,optimization, model checking, testing, constraint solving).

* Applications: Adaptation and specialization of timing technology in application domains in which timing plays an important role (e.g., real-time software, hardware circuits, scheduling in manufacturing and telecommunication, robotics).

New for this year, FORMATS will incorporate a special track on:

* Learning-based and data-driven systems: We particularly encourage papers that exploit synergies between the formal analysis of timed systems and data-driven techniques (such as reinforcement learning or deep learning), or which target application domains where learning is important (such as robotics or autonomous systems).


FORMATS 2022 solicits high-quality papers reporting research results, experience reports and/or tools related to the topics mentioned above. Submitted papers must contain original, unpublished contributions, not submitted for publication elsewhere. The papers should be submitted electronically in PDF, following the Springer LNCS style guidelines. Two categories of papers are invited:

* Regular papers, which should not exceed 15 pages in length

* Short papers, which should not exceed 7 pages in length

Both page limits exclude references, which are not limited in length. If necessary, the paper may be supplemented with a clearly marked appendix, which will be reviewed at the discretion of the program committee. Each paper will undergo a thorough review process. Papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair online submission system:


This year, FORMATS is encouraging authors to submit artifacts where appropriate, for example to demonstrate how to reproduce experimental data in a research paper or to examine the usability and applicability of a software tool. Artifacts will be submitted and evaluated only for papers accepted for publication. These will be evaluated by the Artifact Evaluation Committee and those that are accepted will receive a repeatability badge to be displayed on the first page of the published version.


The proceedings of FORMATS 2022 will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The best paper of the conference will be awarded the Oded Maler Award in Timed Systems.
