Third NASA Formal Methods Symposium

Pasadena, California, USA
April 18 - 20, 2011


Submission deadline : December 26, 2010
Notification of acceptance/rejection : January 28, 2011
Final version due : February 18, 2011
Conference : April 18-20, 2011


The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is a forum for theoreticians and
practitioners from academia, government and industry, with the goals
of identifying challenges and providing solutions to achieving
assurance in mission- and safety-critical systems. The focus of the
symposium is on formal methods, and aims to foster collaboration
between NASA researchers and engineers and the wider aerospace and
academic formal methods communities. The symposium will be comprised
of a mixture of invited talks by leading researchers and
practitioners, presentation of accepted papers, and panels.

NFM 2011 is the third edition of the NASA Formal Methods Symposium,
organized by NASA on a yearly basis. The first in 2009 and was
organized at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffet Field, California. The
second in 2010 was organized at NASA head quarters, Washington
D.C. The symposium originated from the earlier Langley Formal Methods
Workshop series.


There are two categories of submissions:

* Regular paper: up to 15 pages, describing fully developed work and
complete results. Papers can present theory, software engineering aspects,
or case studies.

* Tool papers: up to 6 pages, describing an operational tool. The
authors of accepted tool papers will give demonstrations of their
tools in tool demo sessions. Tool papers should explain enhancements
that have been done compared to previously published work. A tool
paper does not need to present the theory behind the tool but can
focus more on its features, and how it is used, with screen shots and

All papers should be in English and describe original work that has
not been published or submitted elsewhere.

Submissions will be fully reviewed and the symposium proceedings will
appear as a volume in Lecture Notes of Computer Science. Papers must
use the LNCS style, and be in pdf format.


There will be no registration fee charged to participants.
