FACS 2015

12th International Conference on Formal Aspects of Component Software

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, October 14-16, 2015

* Paper submission deadline July 12. (No pre-submission of abstracts necessary)


Component-based software development proposes sound engineering
principles and techniques to cope with the complexity of
software-intensive systems. However, many challenging conceptual and
technological issues remain. Furthermore, the advent of
service-oriented and cloud computing has brought to the fore new
dimensions, such as quality of service and robustness to withstand
faults, which require revisiting established concepts and developing new
ones in order to take advantage of the opportunities offered by those
architectures. As software applications themselves become components
of wider socio-technical systems, further challenges arise from the
need to create and manage interactions, which can evolve in time and
space, and rely on resources that can change in various ways.

FACS 2015 is concerned with how formal methods can be used to make
component-based development fit for the new architectures and
the systems that now pervade the world. Formal methods have provided
foundations for component-based software through research on
mathematical models for components, composition and adaptation, and
rigorous approaches to verification, deployment, testing, and

The conference 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, and similar 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
* probabilistic techniques for modeling and verification;
* case studies and experience reports;
* update and reconfiguration of component and service architectures;
* formal and rigorous approaches to software adaptation and
self-adaptive systems;
* tools supporting formal methods for components and services.


We solicit high-quality submissions, related to the topics mentioned
above, in the following categories:

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
2015, 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. Paper submission is done
via EasyChair at
Papers must be formatted according to the guidelines for Springer LNCS


All accepted papers will appear in the pre-proceedings of FACS
2015. Accepted papers in the categories A-D above will appear in the
proceedings of the conference 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 a special issue of the
Science of Computer Programming journal.


Paper submission deadline: July 12 (AoE) (extended)
Notification: August 28
Conference: Oct 14-16
