The aim of the symposium is to bring together international
researchers and practitioners in the field of formal software
engineering methods. Its focus is on clarifying the relation between
formal methods and advanced software technologies, especially for
engineering complex, large-scale artifacts like cyber-physical
systems, networks of things, enterprise systems, or cloud-based
services. Contributions relating to formal methods or integrating
them with software engineering, as well as papers advancing
scalability or widening the scope of formal methods to new design
goals are especially welcome.

Being hosted in China, the symposium will also provide a platform for
building up research collaborations between the rapidly growing
Chinese computer science community and its international
counterpart. The symposium will support this process through dedicated
events and therefore welcomes both young researchers considering
international collaboration in formal methods and established researchers
looking for international cooperation and willing to attract new
colleagues to the domain.

Authors are invited to submit papers on original research, industrial
applications, or position papers proposing challenges in fundamental
research and technology. The latter two types of submissions are
expected to contribute to the development of formal methods either by
substantiating the advantages of integrating formal methods into the
development cycle or through delineating need for research by
demonstrating weaknesses of existing formal methods, especially when
addressing new application domains.

Submissions can take the form of either normal or short papers. Short
papers can discuss ongoing research at an early stage, including PhD
projects. It is planned to publish the proceedings in the Springer
LNCS series.

Submissions can take the form of either normal or short papers. Short papers can discuss ongoing research at an early stage, including PhD projects. Regular Papers should not exceed 15 pages and Short Papers should not exceed 6 pages in LNCS format. The proceedings will be published as a volume in Springer's LNCS series. The authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to appear in a special issue of the Formal Aspect Computing journal.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Formal aspects of engineering approaches to software and system quality

* Integration of formal methods into software engineering practice

* Requirements analysis, specification and design

* Formal methods for embedded, real-time, hybrid, and cyber-physical systems

* Formal methods for service-oriented and cloud computing

* Formal aspects of security and mobility

* Formal aspects of safety, reliability, robustness, and fault-tolerance

* Model checking, theorem proving, and decision procedures

* Integration of empirical analysis techniques with formal methods

* Contract-based engineering of components, systems, and systems of systems

* Formal and engineering aspects of software evolution and maintenance

* Scalable approaches to formal system analysis and design

* Tool integration

* Applications of formal methods and industrial experience reports
