First Call for Papers

SEFM 2019

17th International Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods

Oslo, Norway, September 16-20, 2019
Twitter: @SEFM_conf


Abstract submission deadline: May 13, 2019 (AoE) -- EXTENDED
Paper submission deadline: May 20, 2019 (AoE) -- EXTENDED
Notification: June 25, 2019
Conference: September 16-20, 2019


SEFM aims to bring together leading researchers and practitioners from
academia, industry, and government, to advance the state of the art in
formal methods, to facilitate their uptake in the software industry,
and to encourage their integration within practical software
engineering methods and tools.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following
aspects of software engineering and formal methods:

# Software Development Methods
- Formal modeling, specification, and design
- Software evolution, maintenance, re-engineering, and reuse

# Design Principles
- Programming languages
- Domain-specific languages
- Type theory
- Abstraction and refinement

# Software Testing, Validation, and Verification
- Model checking, theorem proving, and decision procedures
- Testing and runtime verification
- Statistical and probabilistic analysis
- Synthesis
- Performance estimation and analysis of other non-functional properties
- Other light-weight and scalable formal methods

# Security and Safety
- Security, privacy, and trust
- Safety-critical, fault-tolerant, and secure systems
- Software certification

# Applications and Technology Transfer
- Service-oriented and cloud computing systems, Internet of Things
- Component, object, multi-agent and self-adaptive systems
- Real-time, hybrid, and cyber-physical systems
- Intelligent systems and machine learning
- HCI, interactive systems, and human error analysis
- Education

# Case studies, best practices, and experience reports


We solicit two categories of papers:

- Regular papers describing original research results, case studies, or
surveys. Regular papers should not exceed 15 pages, excluding bibliography.

- Tool papers that describe an operational tool and its contributions.
Tool papers should not exceed 6 pages (including bibliography) and should
include the URL of the tool.

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted
concurrently for publication elsewhere. Paper submission is done
via EasyChair at
Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines for Springer LNCS
papers (see


All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the conference that will
be published as a volume in Springer’s LNCS series.

The authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to
submit extended versions of their papers to special issues of the journals
"Software and Systems Modeling" and "Formal Methods in System Design."
