Special Section on Formal Approach

The IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems announces a
forthcoming special issue on Formal Approach to be published in June

Formal methods and techniques play a key role in designing and
developing highly reliable information systems. The last decades have
seen various new techniques and profound theoretical results using
formal methods in surprisingly many fields such as modeling,
requirements analysis, specification, automatic generation of codes,
test, verification, maintenance, and reuse. They are rapidly
extending its application domains as a result of the recent growth of
information and communication technologies.

The Special Section on Formal Approach aims at stimulating research on
formal approach to information systems, ranging from fundamental
theory to case studies in practical systems. Our emphasis is put on
the cross-fertilization of related research fields and encouragement
of young researchers.

The major topics are listed below, but we solicit submissions in all
areas of formal approaches, i.e., first to formalize information
systems and their environment, next to analyze their behavior and to
derive their properties rigorously, and then to solve various problems
in designing and managing the systems.

- Theoretical foundations: all aspects of theory related to formal
approaches such as requirements, specification, verification, and
static and dynamic analysis.

- Methodologies: all aspects of methodologies related to formal
approaches such as lightweight formal methods, model-based
design, and refinement.

- Languages: specification languages, modeling languages, model-based
(programming) languages, hardware description and verification
languages, etc.

- Tools: model checkers, theorem provers, static and dynamic analyzers,

- Applications: formal analysis of systems such as embedded systems,
hybrid systems and social systems (e.g., internal control),
testing such as concolic testing, code generation from formal
specifications, etc.
