Gramado, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
August 19-21, 2009

Paper Submission: April, 17

SBMF is a *Qualis A* Brazilian Conference


CALL FOR PAPERS AND TUTORIALS


SBMF 2009 is the twelfth of a series of events devoted to the
dissemination of the development and use of formal methods for the
construction of high quality computational systems. It is now a
well-established event, with a very good national and international
reputation. SBMF is the main event on formal methods in Brazil,
qualified as one of the high quality national events by Brazilian
research agencies.

Besides technical sessions, the symposium presents invited speakers
from the international community.

Jean-Raymond Abrial (Switzerland)
Daniel Kroening (UK)
Leonardo de Moura (USA)
Sebastian Uchitel (Argentina)

The proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS – Qualis A) series from Springer. Selected
high-quality technical papers from SBMF 2008 are being considered
for publication in a Special Issue of Science of Computer
Programming, Elsevier. For SBMF 2009, the same process will take
place.

For the first time a workshop on theses and dissertations in formal
methods will happen in the symposium. The WTD is a student forum for
bringing together graduate students that research on topics related
to formal methods. The aim of this meeting is to present and discuss
the proposed contribution, preliminary results and possible
directions for their research.

In 2009, the SBMF will be held in the small touristic town of
Gramado, in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. The event will be organized
by the Institute of Informatics of the Federal University of Rio
Grande do Sul (UFRGS).

This year the symposium will be co-located with the Brazilian
Symposium on Programming Languages and the Brazilian Workshop on
Systematic and Automated Software Testing, which will happen in the
same week and in the same venue.

The aim of this event is to provide an opportunity for researchers
with a broad range of interests in formal methods to discuss recent
developments in this field. The topics include, but are not limited
to, the following:

- Well-founded specification and design languages;
- Formal aspects of popular languages and
methodologies;
- Logics and semantics of programming and
specification languages;
- Reusable domain theories;
- Type systems and category theory in computer
science;
- Computational complexity of methods and models;
- Computational models;
- Rewriting systems;
- Formal methods integration;
- Formal methods for software/hardware
development;
- Formal methods applied to model-driven
engineering;
- Code generation;
- Formal design methods;
- Specification and modeling;
- Abstraction, modularization and refinement
techniques;
- Program and test synthesis;
- Techniques for correctness by construction;
- Formal methods and models for objects, aspects
and component systems;
- Formal methods and models for real-time, hybrid
and critical systems;
- Formal methods and models for service-oriented
systems;
- Models of concurrency, security and mobility;
- Model checking;
- Theorem proving;
- Static analysis;
- Formal techniques for software testing;
- Software certification;
- Formal techniques for software inspection.
- Teaching of, for and with formal methods;
- Experience reports on the use of formal methods;
- Industrial case studies;
- Tools supporting the formal development of
computational systems;
- Development methodologies with formal
foundations;
- Software evolution based on formal methods.

Papers with a strong emphasis on Formal Methods, whether practical or theoretical, are invited for submission.

The following types of submissions are expected:

- Technical papers: unpublished and original work that have clear
contributions to the state of the art on the theory and practice of
formal methods. Papers will be judged on the basis of originality,
relevance, technical soundness and presentation quality. Papers must
be written in English and not exceed 16 pages in the LNCS format
(see http://www.springer.com/lncs ).

Extended versions of all accepted papers will be eligible for
selection for a journal special issue. Only papers originally
submitted in English are subject to this publication.

- WTD papers: Master and PhD students are invited to submit papers
that give a report on the research they are developing. The papers
must correspond to individual work but may be co-authored by the
advisor. Papers must be no longer than 8 pages, including all
figures, tables and references.

Every accepted paper MUST have at least one author registered to the
symposium by the time the camera-ready paper is submitted; the
author is also expected to attend the symposium and present the
paper. Papers originally submitted in English MUST be presented in
English.

Papers can be submitted via the following link:
