Conference Series : Software Engineering and Formal Methods
When Sep 7, 2015 - Sep 11, 2015

Call For Papers

The conference will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government, to advance the state of the art in formal methods, to facilitate their uptake in the software industry, and to encourage their integration within practical software engineering methods and tools.

Authors are invited to submit full research papers describing original research results, case studies and tools; and short new ideas/work-in-progress papers describing new approaches, techniques and/or tools that are not fully validated yet.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following aspects of software engineering and formal methods:

* Formal requirement analysis, modelling, specification and design
* Abstraction and refinement
* Formal methods for probabilistic verification and synthesis
* Programming languages, program analysis and type theory
* Formal methods for self-adaptive systems, service-oriented and cloud computing
* Formal aspects of security and mobility
* Model checking, theorem proving and decision procedures
* Formal methods for real-time, hybrid and embedded/cyber-physical systems
* Formal methods for safety-critical, fault-tolerant and secure systems
* Software architecture and coordination languages
* Software verification and validation
* Component, object and multi-agent systems
* Formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance
* Formal methods for testing, re-engineering and reuse
* Light-weight and scalable formal methods
* Tool integration
* Applications of formal methods, industrial case studies and technology transfer
* Education and formal methods
* Interactive systems and human error analysis
* Formal methods for HCI
* Formal analysis of human behaviour


Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. They will be evaluated on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the conference.

Papers should conform to the Springer LNCS style specified at

and should describe, in English, original work that has not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. PDF versions of papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair, using the link:

We solicit three categories of papers:

* Research papers should describe fully developed work and should not exceed 15 pages. Authors of papers reporting experimental work are strongly encouraged to make their experimental results available to reviewers. Case study papers should describe significant case studies and lessons learned.

* Tool papers should describe an operational tool and its contributions. Tool papers should not exceed 15 pages. Please include the URL of the tool (if available).

* New ideas/Work-in-Progress papers should describe new approaches, techniques and/or tools that are not fully validated yet. Papers in this category should not exceed 6 pages.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
