12th International Workshop on Formal Engineering
approaches to Software Components and Architectures

Satellite event of ETAPS
April 12th, 2015, London, UK

* Paper registration: December 10, 2014
* Submission deadline: December 17, 2014
* Notification of acceptance: January 26, 2015


In recent years, the growing importance of functional correctness and the increased relevance of system quality properties (e.g. performance, reliability, security) have stimulated the emergence of analytical and modelling techniques for the design and development of software systems. With the increasing complexity of today's software systems, FESCA aims at addressing two research questions: (1) what role the software architecture can play in systematic addressing of the analytical and modelling challenges, and (2) how formal and semi-formal techniques can be applied effectively to make the issues easier to address automatically, with lower human intervention.


We encourage submissions on (semi-)formal techniques and their application that aid analysis, design and implementation of software applications, including the techniques in the realm of Model-Driven Development.
In this context, the topics include (but are not limited to):
* Modelling
- Modelling formalisms;
- Models, metamodels and model transformations;
* Correctness checking
- Temporal properties and their formal verification;
- Interface compliance and contractual use of components;
* Correctness of models, metamodels and model transformations
* Analysis and prediction of quality attributes
- Formal prediction and analysis;
- Static and dynamic analysis;
- Instrumentation and monitoring approaches;
* Industrial case studies and experience reports.

We encourage not only mature research results, submissions presenting innovative ideas and early results of junior researchers are also of a particular interest.


Three kinds of submissions are solicited:

* regular papers (up to 15 pages) presenting original and unpublished work related to the workshop topics,
* position papers (up to 10 pages) presenting ideas and directions of interesting ongoing and yet unpublished research related to the workshop topics, and
* tool demonstration papers (up to 8 pages) presenting and highlighting the distinguishing features of a topic-related tool (co-developed by the authors).


* Final versions of accepted regular, position and tool papers will be published in a volume of the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).


* Paper registration: December 10, 2014
* Submission deadline: December 17, 2014
* Notification of acceptance: January 26, 2015
* Final versions due: February 16, 2015
* Workshop date: April 12, 2015
