Call For Papers

Objectives and Scope of the Conference

Timing aspects of systems from a variety of computer science domains
have been treated independently by different communities. Researchers
interested in semantics, verification and performance analysis study
models such as timed automata and timed Petri nets. The digital design
community focuses on propagation and switching delays while designers of
embedded controllers have to take account of the time taken by controllers
to compute their responses after sampling the environment. Timing related
questions in these separate disciplines do have their particularities.
However, there is a growing awareness that there are basic problems that
are common to all of them. In particular, all these sub‐disciplines treat
systems whose behaviour depends upon combinations of logical and
temporal constraints; namely, constraints on the temporal distances
between occurrences of events. The aim of FORMATS is to promote the
study of fundamental and practical aspects of timed systems, and to bring
together researchers from different disciplines that share interests in
modelling and analysis of timed systems. Typical topics include (but are not
limited to):

- Foundations and Semantics: Theoretical foundations of timed
systems and lan‐  guages; comparison between different models
(timed automata, timed Petri nets, hybrid automata, timed
process algebra, max‐plus algebra, probabilistic models).

- Methods and Tools: techniques, algorithms, data structures, and
software tools for analyzing timed systems and resolving temporal
constraints (scheduling, worst‐case execution time analysis,
optimisation, model‐checking, testing, constraint solving, etc).

- Applications: adaptation and specialization of timing technology in
application domains in which timing plays an important role (real‐
time software, hardware circuits, and problems of scheduling in
manufacturing and telecommunication).

Publication

The proceedings of FORMATS 2012 will be published by Springer in the
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Papers must contain original
contributions, be clearly written, and include appropriate references to and
comparison with related work. Simultaneous submission to other
conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. Submissions should
not exceed 15 pages, and should be formatted according to Springer LNCS
guidelines. If necessary, the submission may be supplemented with a
clearly marked appendix, which will be reviewed at the discretion of the
program committee.
