CALL FOR PAPERS (incl. deadline extension due to popular demand)

FMICS 2015
20th International Workshop on
Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems

22-23 June 2015, Oslo, Norway

In co-location with FM 2015: 20th International Symposium on Formal Methods


The aim of the FMICS workshop series is to provide a forum for researchers who
are interested in the development and application of formal methods in
industry. In particular, FMICS brings together scientists and engineers that
are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their
experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS workshop series
also strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal
methods and tools for industrial applications.

Important Dates

Abstract submission: January 19th, 2015
Paper submission: January 26th, 2015
Notification: March 13th, 2015
Final version due: March 30th, 2015
Workshop: June 22nd-23rd, 2015

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Design, specification, code generation and testing based on formal methods.
- Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis, certification,
debugging, learning, optimization and transformation of complex, distributed,
real-time systems and embedded systems.
- Verification and validation methods that address shortcomings of existing
methods with respect to their industrial applicability (e.g., scalability and
usability issues).
- Tools for the development of formal design descriptions.
- Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal
methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research
- Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process and
associated costs. Application of formal methods in standardization and
industrial forums.

Paper Submission

Submissions must describe authors' original research work and results.
Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or conference
with published proceedings and must not be concurrently submitted to any other
peer-reviewed workshop, symposium, conference or archival journal. Any partial
overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be
clearly indicated.

Submissions should clearly demonstrate relevance to industrial application.
Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical
results (such as scalability of methods), or provide specific motivation for
further research and development.

Submissions should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the LNCS style
(Springer), and should be submitted as Portable Document Format (PDF) files
using the EasyChair submission site.

All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee who will make a
selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and
applicability of the presented ideas and results. The proceedings of the
workshop will be published in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) and distributed during the workshop.

Participants will give a presentation of their papers in twenty minutes,
followed by a ten-minute round of questions and discussion on participants' work.

Following the tradition of the past editions, a special issue
of either SCP or STTT will be devoted to FMICS 2015.
Selected participants will be invited to submit an extended version of their
papers after the workshop. These extended versions will again be reviewed to
decide on their final publication on the special issue.
