INTRODUCTION

SBMF 2017 is the twentieth of a series of events devoted to the development, dissemination and use of formal methods for the construction of high-quality computational systems. It is now a well-established event, with an international reputation.

In 2017, SBMF will take place in Recife, the capital of the state Pernambuco, which is located in the northeast Brazil. It is the 9th city by population in Brazil, with over 1.5 million inhabitants, and it receives more than 5 million tourists from Brazil and abroad per year.

SCOPE AND TOPICS

The aim of SBMF is to provide a venue for the presentation and discussion of high-quality work in formal methods. The topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

* techniques and methodologies, such as method integration; software and hardware co-design; model-driven engineering; formal aspects of popular methodologies; formal design; development methodologies with formal foundations; software evolution based on formal methods;

* specification and modelling languages, such as well-founded specification and design languages; formal aspects of popular languages; logics and semantics for programming and specification languages; code generation; formal methods and models for objects, aspects, component-based, real-time, hybrid, critical, and service-oriented systems;

* theoretical foundations, such as domain theory; type systems and category theory; computational complexity of methods and models; computational models; term rewriting; models of concurrency, security and mobility;

* verification and validation, such as abstraction, modularisation and refinement techniques; program and test synthesis; correctness by construction; model checking; theorem proving; static analysis; formal techniques for software testing; software certification; formal techniques for software inspection;

* education, such as teaching of, for and with formal methods;

* applications, such as experience reports on the use of formal methods; industrial case studies; tool support.

PAPER SUBMISSION

Papers with a strong emphasis on Formal Methods, whether practical or theoretical, are invited for submission. They should present unpublished and original work that has a clear contribution to the state of the art on the theory and practice of formal methods. They should not be simultaneously submitted elsewhere.

Papers will be judged by at least three reviewers on the basis of originality, relevance, technical soundness and presentation quality and should contain sound theoretical or practical results. Industry papers should emphasize practical application of formal methods or report on open challenges.

Contributions should be written in English and be prepared using Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format. Papers may not exceed 16 pages (including figures, references and appendix). Accepted papers will be published, after the conference, in a volume of LNCS. Also, a special issue of Science of Computer Programming (Elsevier) is going to be published for the very best papers.

Every accepted paper MUST have at least one author registered in the symposium by the time the camera-ready copy is submitted; the registered author is also expected to attend the symposium and present the paper.

Papers can be submitted via the following link:

ABOUT RECIFE

Recife stands out as a major tourist attraction, both for its beaches and for its historic sites, dating back to both the Portuguese and the Dutch colonisation of the region. The Boa Viagem beach is one of the most famous urban beaches in Brazil. Visitors get enchanted by the sandy beaches with warm green waters, and also by the complete infrastructure of hotels, restaurants and services which surrounds it. The beach of Porto de Galinhas, 60 kilometers south of Recife, has been repeatedly awarded the title of best beach in Brazil. The historic centre of Olinda, 7 kilometers north of Recife, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1982, and both cities’ Carnival are among the world's most famous.

Recife is also considered the first gastronomic hub of the northeastern region, the second medical centre in Brazil, besides housing the greatest technological park in the country, known as Porto Digital. In Recife, you will find culture, history, food and fun all in one place.
