FMICS 2023 : 28th International Conference on Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems
Conference Series : Formal Methods for Industrial Critical Systems
Call For Papers
The aim of the FMICS conference series is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in the industry. FMICS brings together scientists and engineers who are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods. The FMICS conference series also strives to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research directions.
Methods, techniques, and tools to support automated analysis, certification, debugging, descriptions, learning, optimization, and transformation of complex, distributed, real-time, embedded, mobile and autonomous systems.
Verification and validation methods (model checking, theorem proving, SAT/SMT constraint solving, abstract interpretation, etc.) that address shortcomings of existing methods with respect to their industrial applicability (e.g., scalability and usability issues, tool qualification, and certification).
Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process and associated costs.
Application of formal methods in standardization and industrial forums.
Papers must describe original research work and results. Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or conference with published proceedings and must not be concurrently submitted to any other peer-reviewed workshop, symposium, conference, or archival journal. Any partial overlap with any such published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.
Submissions should clearly motivate relevance to industrial applications. Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical results (such as scalability of methods) or provide specific motivation for further research and development.
Papers should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the LNCS style (Springer). All submissions will be reviewed by the Programme Committee, which will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness, and applicability of the presented ideas and results. Papers must be written in English and should be submitted as PDF files using the EasyChair submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=fmics2023.
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS series. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to present the paper at the conference as a registered participant.
BEST PAPER AWARD
An award will be presented to the authors of the submission selected by the Program Committee as the FMICS 2023 Best Paper.
The Program Committee of FMICS 2023 will invite a selection of accepted papers to submit extended versions to a special issue of an International Journal.
