Call For Papers

The IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems announces a
forthcoming special section on Formal Approaches to be published in June

Formal methods and techniques play a key role in designing and
developing highly reliable information systems and embedded systems. The
last decades have seen various new techniques and profound theoretical
results using formal methods in surprisingly many fields such as
modeling, requirements analysis, specification, automatic generation of
codes, testing, verification, and maintenance. They are rapidly
extending their application domains as a result of the recent growth of
information and communication technologies.

The Special Section on Formal Approaches aims at stimulating research on
formal approaches to information systems and embedded systems, ranging
from fundamental theory to practical applications. Our emphasis is put
on the cross-fertilization of related research fields and encouragement
of young researchers.

The major topics are listed below, but we solicit submissions in all
areas of formal approaches, i.e., first to formalize information
systems, embedded systems, and their environment, next to analyze their
behavior and to derive their properties rigorously, and then to solve
various problems in designing and managing the systems.

- Theoretical foundations: all aspects of theory related to formal
description and verification for structure and behavior of systems.
- Formal techniques: techniques for mainly describing and analyzing
systems, such as software, hardware and networks.
- Formal tools: tools based on formal methods such as model checkers,
theorem provers, and static and dynamic analyzers.
- Applications: practical experiences of applying formal methods to
information systems, embedded systems, circuits, security, etc.
- Education: education on formal methods.
