ReacTS: Call for Papers

International Workshop on
Reconfigurable Transition Systems:
Semantics, Logics and Applications

Tuesday, 5 November 2024, Aveiro, Portugal

Satellite event of SEFM 2024 (


Reconfigurable Transition Systems (RTS) are dynamic relational structures (graphs) that evolve along its execution, in the sense that their accessibility relation, their set of nodes or their labelling change when their edges are crossed. These structures have proven to be suitable to compactly represent complex reactive and reconfigurable behaviours. Namely, the ability of reacting or readapting under the influence of certain events is a very distinctive feature of many diverse situations and objects. An autonomous vehicle that changes its route due to a new strike occurring, the behaviour of a software component after a memory disposal, or a DNA mutation as the result of a viral infection, are different examples that witness the importance of modelling about changes in a determined situation. Practical user cases have aroused the interest of the logic community in the study of variants of RTS, by developing formal methods to properly reason about such situations.
This workshop aims to bring together the whole community of researchers working on different ways to model reconfigurable and reactive systems from a formal perspective. This includes theoretical approaches (like hybrid logics, reactive frames, model-update logics), or formalisms designed for specific purposes (like separation logic in software verification, dynamic epistemic logic in AI planning, and others). Also, our goal is to devise novel approaches and potential applications, and share a common perspective on the discipline.


Authors are invited to submit, via EasyChair research contributions or experience
reports (

All papers should be written in English and prepared using the specific LNCS
templates available at

There are two categories of submissions

FULL PAPERS up to 12 pages excluding reference,
– to present original research and the analysis, interpretation and validation of the research findings.

– to present work in progress and preliminary results.

Both kinds of submissions allow system descriptions, to present a new tool, a new tool component or novel extensions to an existing tool aiming at supporting open community approaches, or the use/customisation of an existing tool in the context of RTS.

Accepted Full Papers will be included in the workshop programme and will appear in the workshop pre-proceedings as well as in the LNCS post-proceedings.

Accepted Short presentations will be included in the pre-proceeding but not published in the post-proceedings.

Pre-proceedings will be available online before the Workshop.

The scope of the workshop includes (but it is not limited to):

Reconfigurable transitions systems
Models for the analysis of reconfigurable systems
Dynamic Logics, Separation Logics, Dynamic Epistemic Logics for RTS
Applications of formal models for reconfigurable systems
Computational tools to animate and analyze RTS
Generalizations of RTS: Fuzzy RTS, Paraconsistent RTS, Weighted RTS
Featured Transition System
Bisimulations and general algebraic constructions
Model Checking and Tools
Reactive systems and Process Algebra
Applications of AI for RTS
