Call For Papers


By this present open call, the organization of the symposium appeals to the submission of proposals of abstracts, for posterior development of papers on research and/or professional practice, on which formal methods, targeted to Architecture and Urbanism, are prominent. The conference will appreciate hybridization and fusion between formal methods and new perspectives contributing to complement different approaches from formal methods and even semi-formal and/or informal ones.
