SBMF 2023 is the twenty-sixth 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. It regularly
receives submissions and participants from all over the world.

Chantal Keller (Université Paris-Saclay)



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:

:: Applications of formal methods to
* Software or/and hardware design
* Software or/and hardware development
* Software or/and hardware code generation
* Software or/and hardware testing
* Software maintenance, evolution or/and reuse
* Intelligent systems

:: Specification and modeling languages
* Logic and semantics for specification or/and programming languages
* Formal methods for timed, real-time, hybrid, or/and safety-critical systems
* Formal methods for service-oriented, cloud-based, or/and cyber-physical systems

:: Theoretical foundations
* Domain theory
* Term rewriting
* Computational models
* Type systems and category systems
* Computation complexity of methods and models
* Models of time, concurrency, security or/and mobility

:: Verification and validation
* Abstraction, modularization or/and refinement techniques
* Static analysis
* Model checking
* Theorem proving
* Software certification
* Correctness by construction

:: Experience reports
* Reports on teaching formal methods
* Reports on industrial application of formal methods


We invite submissions of papers with a strong emphasis on formal methods, whether practical or theoretical, in the following categories:

- Regular papers (limit of 15 pages). Proofs of theoretical results
that do not fit the page limit may be provided in an appendix.

- Short papers (limit of 8 pages). Short papers include system
descriptions, user experiences, and case studies. We encourage
authors to make the data needed to reproduce their experiments

The page limits exclude references and appendices.

Contributions should not be simultaneously submitted for publication
elsewhere. They should be written in English, and prepared using
Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) format. Springer’s
proceedings LaTeX templates are available in Overleaf. More
information is available at the following link:

Papers should present unpublished and original work that has a clear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. 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 the practical application of
formal methods or report on open challenges.

Submissions should be made via the following link:


Accepted papers will be published, after the conference, in a volume
of LNCS. The authors will be requested to complete and sign a
consent-to-publish form. 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.

A special issue of the Science of Computer Programming Journal
(Elsevier) is going to be organised (to be confirmed) with selected
and extended papers from the 26th Brazilian Symposium on Formal
Methods (SBMF 2023).
