SCOPE

The component-based software development approach has emerged as a promising
paradigm to cope with an ever increasing complexity of present-day software
solutions by bringing sound production and engineering principles into
software engineering. However, many conceptual and technological issues
remain in component-based software development theory and practice that pose
challenging research questions. Moreover, the advent of cloud computing,
cyber-physical systems, and of the Internet of Things has brought to the
fore new dimensions. This include quality of service, reconfiguration and
robustness to withstand inevitable faults, which require established
concepts to be revisited and new ones to be developed in order to meet the
opportunities offered by those architectures.

FACS 2017 is concerned with how formal methods can or should be used to make
component-based software development succeed. Formal methods consist of
mathematics-based techniques for the specification, development, and
verification of software and hardware systems. They have been shown to
provide a strong foundation for component-based software by successfully
addressing challenging issues such as mathematical models for components,
composition and adaptation, and rigorous approaches to verification,
deployment, testing, and certification.

The objective of FACS 2017 is to bring together researchers and
practitioners in the areas of component software and formal methods in order
to promote a deeper understanding of the component-based software
development paradigm and its applications.


TOPICS

The conference seeks to address the applications of formal methods in all
aspects of software components and services. FACS aims at developing a
community-based understanding of relevant and emerging research problems
through formal paper presentations and lively discussions. Specific topics
include, but are not limited to:

- formal models for software components and their interaction
- formal methods and modeling languages for components and services
- formal aspects of services, service oriented architectures, SaaS, cloud
computing, and business processes
- model-based and GUI-based design, implementation, and test of components
and services
- composition and deployment: models, calculi, languages
- component/service re-engineering and reuse
- models for QoS and other extra-functional properties (e.g., trust,
compliance, security) of components and services
- formal models for component-based systems with variability
- update and reconfiguration of component and service architectures
- component systems evolution and maintenance
- autonomic components & self-managed applications
- formal and rigorous approaches to software adaptation and self-adaptive
systems
- industrial or experience reports, and case studies in component software
- automated and tool-based approaches to facilitate the use of formal
methods for components and services
- modelling and verification of real-time, probabilistic, and/or hybrid
component-based systems
- components for real-time, safety-critical, secure, and/or embedded systems
- components as enabling technology for the Internet of things and
cyber-physical systems


SUBMISSIONS

Doctoral Track:
In addition, we solicit submissions to the Doctoral Track of FACS 2017, 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.

Publication:
All accepted papers will appear in the categories A-D above will appear in
the proceedings of the conference that will be published as a volume in the
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. A special issue of the
Science of Computer Programming journal is planned for extended versions of
selected papers from FACS 2017.
