Call For Papers

Overview and Scope

The 20th edition of the International Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods (SEFM'22) will be held Sept. 28 - 30, 2022, with workshops on Sept. 26 and 27 and a SEFM school Sept. 20-24. The conference aims to bring together 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. Depending on the further development of the current pandemic, the conference will be either purely virtual or in-person-only at Humboldt University, Berlin. Authors should be prepared for both types; the decision will be communicated at the end of May 2022.

The 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
Automated software engineering
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
Software synthesis and repair
Lightweight and scalable formal methods
Analysis of dependability, performance and other non-functional properties
Resilience, security, privacy, and trust
Safety-critical, fault-tolerant, and secure systems
Software assurance and certification
Service-oriented and cloud computing systems, Internet of Things
Component-based and multi-agent systems
Real-time, hybrid, and cyber-physical systems
Intelligent systems and machine learning
HCI, interactive systems, and human error analysis

Applications and Technology Transfer

Case studies
Best practices
Experience reports
Educational topics

Special topic at SEFM 2022: “Software Engineering and Formal Methods for Intelligent and Learning Systems”

Formal specification of tasks for ML
Data management and data preparation
Autonomous and self-adaptive systems
Test generation for ML components
Verification of safety and security for artificial intelligence
Integration of conventional software and machine learning
AI for the improvement of formal methods
Use of AI in software engineering

Paper submission

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. Two more pages containing only references are permitted.

Tool papers that describe an operational tool and its contributions. Tool papers should be marked as such and should not exceed 6 pages (including bibliography) and should include the URL of the tool, which should contain an executable artifact for evaluation.

Industrial papers that are mainly written by participants from industry and describe the usage of formal methods in industrial applications, case studies, best practices, or experience reports. Industrial paper should be marked as such, and are also limited to 6 pages (including bibliography).

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted concurrently for publication elsewhere.

Paper submission is done via EasyChair:

Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines for Springer LNCS papers.

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the conference, which will be published as a volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
