Call For Papers

SCOPE
Formal methods seek to contribute to the engineering of dependable systems by applying sound techniques based on computer science fundamentals. Complex systems often involve different formalisms to deal with the modeling of their different aspects, as each formalism is specific to only some system aspects and none is perfectly supporting all aspect constructs and their related semantics. Accordingly, different analysis techniques are required to check the different system views and verify different kinds of properties. Formalism integration is intended to support coherent specification and analysis of different aspects of a system. The FMi workshop aims at further research into hybrid approaches to formal modeling and analysis. It seeks contributions from researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of integrating methods, either formal or semi-formal, for system development, covering all engineering development phases from user requirements through design and analysis techniques to tools. The workshop also encourages new initiatives of building bridges between informal, semi-formal, and formal notations. Authors are invited to submit both research and tool papers.

TOPICS
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- scalable formal methods
- component-based specification and analysis
- integrated software/hardware architectures and their description languages
- hybrid and embedded systems modeling and analysis
- object and multi-agent systems modeling and analysis
- requirement analysis and specification
- software and hardware specification, verification, and validation
- theorem proving and decision procedures
- formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance
- formal methods for re-engineering and reuse
- formal language integration
- programming language integration
- semi-formal (UML, SysML, …) and formal model integration
- informal and formal language integration
- integration of formal methods into software engineering practice
- secure protocol integration
- integrated analysis techniques
- tools integration
- integration of formal methods in education
- integration of formal methods in industry
- integration of formal methods in security

IMPORTANT DATES
Paper submission deadline: April 25, 2014
Paper notification: May 28, 2014
Camera-ready paper due: June 13, 2014
Registration due: June 13, 2014

PAPER SUBMISSION
Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Submissions will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the Technical Program Committee. Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Only electronic submissions in PDF format through the EasyChair submission site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ieeefmi2014 will be considered. Papers must be in English, up to 8 pages in IEEE format, including references and appendices. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as formatting guidelines, can be found on the paper submission instructions available at the main conference website.

PAPER PUBLICATION
At least one of the authors must register and present the paper, if accepted. Registered papers will be published as workshop papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Presented papers will be published by Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing, edited by Springer. Besides, best papers will be invited to be expanded and considered for publication in a special issue of a peer reviewed journal (pending).
