FSEN 2023 : Fundamentals of Software Engineering
Conference Series : Fundamentals of Software Engineering
Call For Papers
FSEN is an international conference that aims to bring together researchers, engineers, developers, and practitioners from the academia and the industry to present and discuss their research work in the area of formal methods for software engineering. This conference seeks to facilitate the transfer of experience, adaptation of methods, and where possible, foster collaboration among different groups. The topics of interest cover all aspects of formal methods, especially those related to advancing the application of formal methods in the software industry and promoting their integration with practical engineering techniques. Following the success of the previous FSEN editions, the next edition of the FSEN conference will take place in Tehran, Iran, May 3-5, 2023.
FSEN 2023 is planned as in-person event, unless the Covid-19 rules change.
Topics of Interest
The topics of this conference include, but are not restricted to, the following:
-Models of programs and software systems
-Software specification, validation, and verification
-Software architectures and their description languages
-Object and multi-agent systems
-Coordination and feature interaction
-Integration of formal and informal methods
-Integration of different formal methods
-Component-based and service-oriented software systems
-Collective, self-adaptive and cyber-physical software systems
-Model checking and theorem proving
-Software and hardware verification
-CASE tools and tool integration
-Back to top
Authors are invited to submit full papers (up to 15 pages) describing original research, applications and tools; or short papers (up to 6 pages) describing ongoing research or new ideas that have not yet been fully validated. Both categories of papers must be submitted electronically in PDF using the online submission process via the Easychair conference system at the following link: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fsen2023.
Contributions must be written in English, should be formatted according to the Springer LNCS style (LaTeX2e Proceedings Templates) that can be found here and not exceed the page limit for the category (including figures and references).
Each submission will be thoroughly reviewed by at least three reviewers considering scientific originality, significance, relevance to the FSEN conference, technical soundness, clarity, self-containedness and discussion of appropriate related work.
The reviewers will be asked to rate the submissions and evaluate whether they can be accepted as:
Full paper for the LNCS post-proceedings and conference pre-proceedings
Short paper for the LNCS post-proceedings and conference pre-proceedings
Poster included only in the pre-proceedings
Papers accepted in the first 2 categories will be invited for presentation at the conference. Posters will be illustrated by the authors in separate poster sessions.
Submissions are required to report on original, unpublished work and should not be submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP's Author Code of Conduct).
The post-proceedings of FSEN 2023 will be published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series. There will be pre-proceedings, printed locally by IPM, available at the conference. Following the tradition of FSEN, we plan to have a special issue of the Science of Computer Programming journal devoted to FSEN 2023 (to be confirmed). After the conference a selection of papers will be invited for this special issue. The invited papers should be extended and will undergo a new round of review by an international program committee. Please see the websites of previous editions of FSEN for more information on post-proceedings and special issues related to those editions.
Note from Springer: Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
