First Call for Papers

FMICS 2012

17th International Workshop on
Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems

August 27/28, 2012, Paris, France

Co-located with FM 2012



The aim of the FMICS workshop series is to provide a forum for
researchers who are interested in the development and application of
formal methods in industry. In particular, FMICS brings together
scientists and engineers that are active in the area of formal
methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the
industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS workshop series also
strives to promote research and development for the improvement of
formal methods and tools for industrial applications.

Workshop Proceedings will be published in Springer's LNCS series.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Design, specification, code generation and testing based on
formal methods.

* Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis,
certification, debugging, learning, optimization and
transformation of complex, distributed, real-time systems
and embedded systems.

* Verification and validation methods that address
shortcomings of existing methods with respect to their
industrial applicability (e.g., scalability and usability

* Tools for the development of formal design descriptions.

* Case studies and experience reports on industrial
applications of formal methods, focusing on lessons learned
or identification of new research directions.

* Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development
process and associated costs.

* Application of formal methods in standardization and
industrial forums.


Important Dates

* Abstract submission: March 28th, 2012

* Paper submission: April 4th, 2012

* Notification: May 25th, 2012

* Final version due: June 8th, 2012

* Workshop: August 27th-28th, 2012


Paper Submission

Submissions must describe authors' original research work and their results. Contributions should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the LNCS style (Springer), and should be submitted as Portable Document Format (PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site.

Submitting an abstract does not put any obligation on the authors to submit a full paper. Abstracts without an accompanying full paper by the paper submission deadline are automatically considered withdrawn; the authors are, however, encouraged to explicitly withdraw their abstract, if they decide not to submit a full paper.

All submissions must report on original research. Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or conference with published proceedings and must not be concurrently submitted to any other peer-reviewed workshop, symposium, conference or archival journal. Any partial overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.

Submissions should clearly demonstrate relevance to industrial application. Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical results (such as scalability of methods), or provide specific motivation for further research and development.

All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee who will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and applicability of the presented ideas and results. A printed version of the proceedings will be distributed among participants during the workshop. The proceedings of the workshop will be published the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Participants will give a presentation of their papers in twenty minutes, followed by a ten-minute round of questions and discussion on participants' work.

Following the tradition of the past edition, a special issue of an international scientific journal will be devoted to FMICS 2012. Selected participants will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers after the workshop. These extended versions will again be reviewed by a program committee, which will decide on their final publication on the special issue. In the last few editions of FMICS, a special issue of Science of Computer Programming or STTT has been dedicated to this workshop and we similarly plan to devote a special issue of one of these journals to FMICS 2012.
