RATIONALE

The way services and information are currently delivered to a multitude of
end-users is changing impressively thanks to the availability of systems
built on new technologies (as IoT connectivity and smart devices), and
exposing complex computational models (as mobile, cloud, autonomic, adaptive, etc.).
The development of these Advanced Computing Systems requires the integration
of heterogeneous methods, techniques, solutions already individually tested
in specific contexts. Moreover, the employment of the emerging technologies
may unexpectedly expose the user to undesired consequences; therefore,
ensuring reliability, safety, and availability of such systems, is a very
challenging issue that requires rigorous modeling and analysis techniques.
Formal approaches have been widely developed in the area of classical distributed
systems and applied to several case studies. The challenge now is how to deal
with the new problems (e.g., uncertainty, untrustworthiness, information loss, etc.)
that are emerging in the development and maintenance
of advanced computing systems.
The workshop will be a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss if
current formal methods are suitable for the specification and analysis of
advanced computing systems, and what are the upcoming challenges for the formal
method community in devising rigorous approaches able to deal with
characteristics of the emerging technologies and computational models.


-----------------------------------------------------------

Topics
List of topics includes but is not limited to:
- Formal methods and semi-formal methods for modeling, validation,
and verification of functional and non-functional properties of:
cloud applications
mobile applications
mobile cloud applications
self-adaptive systems
Collective Adaptive Systems
systems of systems
IoT applications
smart systems
socio-technical systems
large-scale distributed applications
cyber-Physical Systems
etc.
- Functional, performance, and QoS testing, provided as a service on the Cloud or in an IoT network
- Case studies and experience reports


-----------------------------------------------------------


SUBMISSION POLICY, INSTRUCTIONS, CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS


Two kinds of contributions are invited (written in English and
prepared using the specific LNCS templates):

- Research papers: they must be between 6 and 15 pages long
(including references) for the submission and the pre-proceedings.
Up to 2 additional pages will be given for the post-proceedings,
only to address reviewers' comments and feedback from the workshop.

- Short new ideas/work-in-progress papers describing new approaches,
techniques and/or tools that are not fully validated yet: they must
be up to 6 pages (including references). No additional pages will be
given for the post-proceedings. The paper must contain
"(short paper)" as subtitle.


Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=faacs2017


All accepted papers will be published in a joint LNCS proceedings volume for SEFM co-located events.
