7th International Workshop on Formal Techniques for Safety-Critical Systems

              Shenzhen, China, November, 9, 2019
(satellite workshop of ICFEM 2019)



*** Science of Computer Programming special issue ***
*** Springer CCIS proceedings ***

Submission deadline: September 10, 2019 (extended and final)

Aims and Scope:

There is an increasing demand for using formal methods to validate and
verify safety-critical systems in fields such as power generation and
distribution, avionics, automotive systems, medical systems, and
autonomous vehicles. In particular, newer standards, such as DO-178C
(avionics), ISO 26262 (automotive systems), IEC 62304 (medical
devices), and CENELEC EN 50128 (railway systems), emphasize the need
for formal methods and model-based development, thereby speeding up
the adaptation of such methods in industry.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and engineers
who are interested in the application of formal and semi-formal methods
to improve the quality of safety-critical computer systems. FTSCS
strives to promote research and development of formal methods and
tools for industrial applications, and is particularly interested in
industrial applications of formal methods. 

Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

* case studies and experience reports on the use of formal methods for
  analyzing safety-critical systems, including avionics, automotive,
  medical, railway, and other kinds of safety-critical and
  QoS-critical systems 
* methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis,
  certification, debugging, etc., of safety/QoS-critical systems
* analysis methods that address the limitations of formal methods in
  industry (usability, scalability, etc.)
* formal analysis support for modeling languages used in industry,
  such as AADL, Ptolemy, SysML, SCADE, Modelica, etc.
* code generation from validated models.

The workshop will provide a platform for discussions and the exchange of
innovative ideas, so submissions on work in progress are encouraged.


We solicit submissions reporting on:

A- original research contributions (16 pages max, LNCS format);
B- applications and experiences (16 pages max, LNCS format);
C- surveys, comparisons, and state-of-the-art reports (16 pages max, LNCS);
D- tool papers (6 pages max, LNCS format);
E- position papers and work in progress (6 pages max, LNCS format)

related to the topics mentioned above.

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted
concurrently for publication elsewhere. Paper submission is done
via EasyChair at
The final version of the paper must be prepared in LaTeX, adhering to
the LNCS format available at


All accepted papers will appear in the pre-proceedings of FTSCS 2019.
Accepted papers in the categories A-D above will appear in the
workshop proceedings that will be published as a volume in
Springer's CCIS series. 

The authors of a selected subset of accepted papers will be invited to
submit extended versions of their papers to appear in a special issue
of the Science of Computer Programming journal.
