Call For Papers

The component-based software development approach has emerged as a promising paradigm to cope with an ever increasing complexity of present-day software solutions by bringing sound production and engineering principles into software engineering. However, many conceptual and technological issues remain in component-based software development theory and practice that pose challenging research questions.

FACS 2010 is concerned with how formal methods can or should be used to make component-based software development succeed. Formal methods consist of mathematically-based techniques for the specification, development, and verification of software and hardware systems. They have shown their great utility for providing the formal foundations of component-based software and working out challenging issues such as mathematical models for components, composition and adaptation, or rigorous approaches to verification, deployment, testing, and certification.

The objective of FACS 2010 is to bring together researchers and practitioners in the areas of component software and formal methods in order to promote a deeper understanding of the component-based software development paradigm and its applications. The workshop seeks to address all common aspects of component software and formal methods. FACS aims at developing a community-based understanding of relevant and emerging research problems through formal paper presentations and lively discussions. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

* formal models for software components and component interaction
* design and verification methods for component software
* component composition and deployment: models, calculi, languages
* component testing, re-engineering and reuse
* specification of extra-functional properties in component software
* certification of components and software architectures
* component software vs. object orientation, multi-agent systems, and aspect-oriented development
* components for real-time, safety-critical, secure and/or embedded systems
* standard models for software components (e.g. Fractal, GCM, etc.)
* industrial or experience reports, and case studies in component software
* partial behavior models for software components
* update and reconfiguration of component architectures
* component systems evolution and maintenance
* formal methods and modeling languages for components
* trust models for components
* cyber-physical component-based systems
* autonomic components and self-managed applications
* formal and rigorous approaches to software adaptation and self-adaptive systems
* formal aspects of Web services and business processes
* component-based Web services and service-oriented architectures
* QoS issues in Web services, multi-agent systems and component-based systems
