Call For Papers

Objectives and Scope

The 2013 IFIP Joint Internatinal Conference on Formal Techniques for Distributed Systems (33rd FORTE / 15th FMOODS) is a forum for fundamental research on theory, models, tools, and applications for distributed systems. The joint conference is the result of merging the conference FMOODS (Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems) and FORTE (Formal Techniques for Networked and Distributed Systems). FORTE/FMOODS 2013 is part of the DiScoTec 2013 event (see

The conference solicits original contributions that advance the science and technologies for distributed systems, with special interest in the areas of:

component- and model-based design
object technology, modularity, software adaptation
service-oriented, ubiquitous, pervasive, grid, cloud, and mobile computing systems
product-line-based systems
software quality, reliability, availability, and safety
security, privacy, and trust in distributed systems
adaptive distributed systems, self-stabilization, self-healing/organizing
verification, validation, formal analysis, and testing of the above

The conference encourages contributions that combine theory and practice and that exploit formal methods and theoretical foundations to present novel solutions to problems arising from the development of distributed systems. FORTE/FMOODS covers distributed computing models and formal specification, testing and verification methods. The application domains include all kinds of application-level distributed systems, telecommunication services, Internet, embedded and real time systems, as well as networking and communication security and reliability. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Languages and Semantic Foundations: new modeling and language concepts for distribution and concurrency, semantics for different types of languages, including programming languages, modeling languages, and domain specific languages; real-time and probability aspects; type systems and behavioral typing;
Formal Methods and Techniques: design, specification, analysis, verification, validation, testing and runtime verification of various types of distributed systems including communications and network protocols, service-oriented systems, and adaptive distributed systems;
Foundations of Security: new principles for qualitative and quantitative security analysis of distributed systems, including formal models based on probabilistic concepts;
Applications of Formal Methods: applying formal methods and techniques for studying quality, reliability, availability, and safety of distributed systems;
Practical Experience with Formal Methods: industrial applications, case studies and software tools for applying formal methods and description techniques to the development and analysis of real distributed systems.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS Series. Proceedings will be made available at the conference.
