Call For Papers

The 8th International Workshop on Formal Approaches for Advanced Computing Systems (FAACS 2024), co-located with the 21st IEEE International Conference on Software Architecture (ICSA 2024), will be held in IIIT Hyderabad, India June 4-8, 2024.

Important Dates:
– Submission Deadline: February 18, 2024
– Notification of Papers: March 17, 2024
– Camera Ready: March 31, 2024
– Workshop Date: June 4 – 5, 2024

*** Motivation and Scope ***
Cutting-edge technologies, infrastructures, and computational paradigms such as digital twin, cloud, fog, edge computing, IoT, digitalization, Industry 5.0, and cyber-physical systems are changing how data and services are delivered and used. Such systems have a significant and elaborate societal impact, making it paramount to guarantee essential qualities of the delivered product, such as dependability, reliability, safety, and availability. As new paradigms become pervasive in our everyday lives, new challenges also emerge in dealing with uncertainty, untrustworthiness, and information loss, affecting the software life cycle in different phases. Ensuring critical qualities requires a joint effort in devising advanced software architecture designs by the software architecture community and formal modeling and verification approaches by the formal methods community.

The main goal of the workshop is to foster integration between formal methods and software architecture promoting new connections and synergies between the two communities to address the challenges of the upcoming generation of computing systems. Aligned with the theme of the ICSA 2024, we welcome contributions on the potential and risks of generative AI in developing advanced software architectures and ensuring qualities like dependability, reliability, safety, and availability through formal modeling and verification.

*** Topics of Interest include (but are not limited to) the following: ***
– requirements formalization and formal specification, with or without the use of generative AI;
– formal/semi-formal architecture design, validation and verification, quality analysis and evaluation;
– formal/semi-formal approaches to digitalization, development of digital society and Digital Twins;
– methodologies and approaches focusing on addressing challenges of modern computing systems that are currently addressed ad-hoc;
– architecture description languages and metamodels;
– architectural patterns, styles and tactics, viewpoints and views;
– architecture transformation and refinement, architecture based synthesis;
– model-driven engineering;
– approaches and tools for verification and validation;
– performance analysis based on formal approaches;
– compliance assurance using formal methods;
– application of methodologies, theories, approaches and techniques specific to the aforementioned areas to AI-based, autonomous, robotic, cyber-physical, and self-adaptive systems;
– use of generative AI for aforementioned areas
– reports on practical experience in the application of formal methods to industrial case studies.

*** Types of Papers ***
FAACS 2024 solicits:
– Full papers (Max 8 pages including references): original research contributions, case studies, or report on work or experiences in industry;
– Short papers (Max 4 pages including references): work-in-progress, new and emerging ideas, techniques and/or tools or extensions not fully validated yet, or outstanding challenges along with possible approaches for resolving them.

*** Best Paper Award ***
Based on the reviews and PC discussion, up to two papers will be selected for the Best Paper Award.

*** Submission ***
All submissions will follow the IEEE Computer Science proceedings format. Submitted papers must be written in English and conform to the the IEEE Guidelines including the guidelines for AI-Generated text. Submissions must be done before the deadline in PDF format via via the EasyChair submission system.
