Call For Papers

Scope

The aim of the FMICS conference series is to provide a forum for researchers who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. In particular, FMICS brings together scientists and engineers who are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS conference series also strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.
Topics

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Design, specification, code generation, and testing based on formal methods.
Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis, certification, debugging, learning, optimization and transformation of complex, distributed, real-time systems and embedded systems.
Automated verification (model checking, theorem proving, SAT/SMT constraint solving, abstract interpretation, etc.) of critical systems
Verification and validation methods that address shortcomings of existing methods with respect to their industrial applicability (e.g., scalability and usability issues).
Tools for the development of formal design descriptions.
Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research directions.
Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process and associated costs. Application of formal methods in standardization and industrial forums.
Formal methods for mobile and autonomous systems.

Submission and Publication

Papers must describe authors’ original research work and results. Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or conference with published proceedings and must not be concurrently submitted to any other peer-reviewed workshop, symposium, conference or archival journal. Any partial overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.

Submissions should clearly demonstrate relevance to industrial application. Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical results (such as scalability of methods) or provide specific motivation for further research and development.

Papers should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the LNCS style (Springer). All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee who will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and applicability of the presented ideas and results.

Papers must be written in English and should be submitted as Portable Document Format (PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fmics2018

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in their LNCS series, while authors of the best full papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the International Journal on Software Tools for Technology Transfer.
