Call For Papers

The symposium seeks to address the development and application of formal methods in all aspects of software components and services. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

- formal models for software components and their interaction
- formal aspects of services, service oriented architectures, business processes, cloud computing, ensembles, or similar programming artifacts
- design and verification methods for software components and services
- composition and deployment: models, calculi, languages
- formal methods and modeling languages for components and services
- model based and GUI based testing of components and services
- models for QoS and other extra-functional properties (e.g., trust, compliance, security) of components and services
- components for real-time, safety-critical, secure, and/or embedded systems
- stochastic techniques for modelling and verification
- simulation techniques for complex networks of interacting components
- industrial or experience reports, and case studies
- update and reconfiguration of component and service architectures
- component systems evolution and maintenance
- autonomic components and self-managed applications
- formal and rigorous approaches to software adaptation and self-adaptive systems
- tools supporting the formal methods for components and services

We solicit high-quality submissions reporting on (as related to topics above):

A - original research contributions (18 pages max);
B - applications and experiences (18 pages max);
C - surveys, comparisons, and state-of-the-art reports (18 pages max);
D - tool papers (6 pages max);

In addition, we solicit submissions to the Doctoral Track of FACS 2014, in the form of abstracts (3 pages max) concisely capturing work in progress, related topic, context, research questions, envisaged contributions, and partial results.
All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted concurrently for publication elsewhere. Papers should be formatted according to the guidelines for Springer LNCS papers.

All accepted papers will appear in the pre-proceedings of FACS 2014. Revised versions of accepted papers in the categories A-D above will appear in the post-proceedings of the symposium that 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 Elsevier's Science of Computer Programming journal.
