IMPORTANT DATES

Final Version: 28 July 2010
Conference: 20-23 October 2010

CONFERENCE SCOPE

FMCAD 2010 is the tenth in a series of conferences on the theory and
application of formal methods in hardware and system design and
verification. FMCAD provides a leading international forum to researchers
and practitioners in academia and industry for presenting and discussing
novel methods, technologies, theoretical results, and tools for formally
reasoning about computing systems, as well as open challenges therein. This
year, FMCAD is privileged to have Joseph Sifakis, Founder and Director of
VERIMAG Laboratory, a Turing Award 2007 winner, to deliver its keynote
address on Scientific Challenges and Work Directions in Embedded Systems
Design.

NEW: FMCAD 2010 has two tracks (but no parallel sessions): the research
track and the industrial track.

RESEARCH TRACK

Topics of interest:

Advancing industrial-strength technologies in Model Checking,
Theorem Proving, Equivalence Checking, Abstraction and Refinement
Techniques, Reduction and Abstraction Techniques, Compositional
Methods, Decision Procedures, SMT solvers, Bit-Precise Reasoning,
Word-Level Techniques, SAT- and BDD-based methods, Probabilistic
Methods, and Combinations of Deductive Methods and Decision
Procedures.

Applications of Formal Methods in Specification, Design and
Verification

Topics relating to the application and applicability of Property-Based
Verification, Equivalence Checking, Semi-formal Verification, Runtime
Verification, Simulation and Test-case Generation, Coverage Analysis,
Microcode Verification, Concurrent Systems, Timing Verification, and
Formal Approaches to Performance and Power.

System-Level Design and Verification, especially for Embedded
Systems, Software Verification, HW/SW Co-Design and Verification,
Transaction-Level Verification.

Modeling and Specification Languages, Model-Based Design,
Verification-Based Testing, Design Derivation and Transformation,
Correct-by-Construction Methods.

INDUSTRIAL TRACK

This track is dedicated to industry users of formal methods, including
work on real industrial-scale designs being done in universities and
research organizations. We invite such users to describe their experience with
formal methods, including evaluations of commercial tools, case studies of
industrial-scale applications, experience reports on novel and challenging
applications, or methodologies for the incorporation of formal or semi-
formal methods into the industrial design flow. Finally, we invite tool
presentations, of industrial-strength commercial tools as well as novel
academic tools that are not yet industrial strength, but address a real
industrial need. Tool presentations should describe the capabilities or
novel features of the tool, or an innovative algorithm, a new approach,
or original application methodology.

EXHIBITION

FMCAD 2010 will feature also an exhibition with limited free-of-charge
booth space for which academic novelty is not a requirement. Note that
since space is limited, we will not be able to accept every request for a booth,
and that preference will be given to requests by authors of accepted tool
presentations. EDA vendors are especially encouraged to submit a tool
presentation and/or to request booth space in order to demo their tools.

SUBMISSIONS

Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via EasyChair.
More details will be provided on the FMCAD web site. The
proceedings are planned to be published by IEEE and ACM and will be
available online in the ACM Digital Library and at IEEE Xplore.

Research Track Submissions

Two categories of research papers can be submitted: regular papers (8
pages) containing original research, and short papers (4 pages) describing
emerging results and work-in-progress.

Industrial Track Submissions

Submitters to the industrial track will have the option of submitting a
regular paper (8 pages), a short paper (4 pages), or a deck of up to
25 slides (for tool presentations: 4 pages or 15 slides). Both papers
and slide submissions will be reviewed. Regular and short papers will
appear in the proceedings as usual, while authors of accepted slide
presentations will be invited to write a one page abstract for the
proceedings.

For exhibition space, submission is not required and an email request to
the industrial track chairs is sufficient. However, due to limited space
we will not be able to accept every request. We therefore strongly
advise those interested in exhibition space to submit a tool presentation,
as we will give preference for booth space to authors of accepted tool
presentations.

Regular and short papers must use the IEEE Transactions format on
letter-size paper using a 10-point font (see
www.ieee.org/portal/pages/pubs/transactions/stylesheets.html).
Research Track papers must contain original research that has not been
previously published, nor concurrently submitted for publication. For
both research and industry submissions, any partial overlap with a
published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.
(For slide decks, use an extra slide to discuss overlaps; this slide may
be excluded from the final presentation.) By submitting their work,
the authors agree to present it at the conference if selected. Authors
are strongly encouraged to provide adequate access to their
experimental data for verification.

A small number of accepted papers will be considered for a
distinguished paper award.
