iFM 2010 : integrated Formal Methods
Conference Series : Integrated Formal Methods
Call For Papers
Objectives and Scope
Applying formal methods may involve the modeling of different aspects of a system that are expressed through different paradigms. Correspondingly, different analysis techniques will be used to examine differently modeled system views, different kinds of properties, or simply in order to cope with the sheer complexity of the system. The iFM conference series seeks to further research into the combination of (formal and semi-formal) methods for system development, regarding modeling and analysis, and covering all aspects from language design through verification and analysis techniques to tools and their integration into software engineering practice.
Areas of interest include but are not limited to:
Formal and semiformal modelling notations | Semantics | Verification | Model checking | Static analysis | Theorem proving | Refinement | Model transformations | Integration of formal methods into software engineering practice | Type systems | Logics | Tools | Experience reports | Case studies
Besides a program of contributed papers the conference will feature a number of workshops and tutorials.
to be announced
iFM 2010 is organized by INRIA Nancy-Grand Est and will take place at the LORIA laboratory for computer science on the campus of the Faculty of Sciences of Nancy University on October 11-14, 2010.
iFM 2010 solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or experience reports related to the overall theme of method integration. All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submission will be electronically as PDF or Postscript, using the Springer LNCS format. Papers should not exceed 15 pages in length, Each paper will undergo a thorough review process. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series. A call for a special issue of a high-quality journal corresponding to selected conference papers is planned.
