8th International Workshop on Formal Techniques for Safety-Critical Systems

Auckland, New Zealand, December 7, 2022
(an OOPSLA/SPLASH 2022 workshop)


*** ACM Digital Library proceedings ***
*** Science of Computer Programming special issue ***

Submission deadline: September 1, 2022

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 (10 pages max, ACM format);
B- applications and experiences (10 pages max, ACM format);
C- surveys, comparisons, and state-of-the-art reports (10 pages max, ACM);
D- tool papers (5 pages max, ACM format);
E- position papers and work in progress (5 pages max, ACM format)

related to the topics mentioned above.
(The page limits do not include the references.)

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted
concurrently for publication elsewhere. Paper submission is done
via HotCRP at
Submissions should be prepared in LaTeX, adhering to
the ACM format available at using the
"sigplan" option.


All accepted papers will appear in the pre-proceedings of FTSCS 2022.
Accepted papers in the categories A-D above will appear in the
workshop proceedings that will be published as a volume in
the ACM Digital Library.

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.
