Call For Papers

The NASA Formal Methods Symposium is a forum for theoreticians and
practitioners from academia, industry, and government, with the goals
of identifying challenges and providing solutions to achieving
assurance in mission- and safety-critical systems. Within NASA, for
example, such systems include autonomous robots, separation assurance
algorithms for aircraft, Next Generation Air Transportation (NextGen),
and autonomous rendezvous and docking for spacecraft. Moreover,
emerging paradigms such as code generation and safety cases are
bringing with them new challenges and opportunities. The focus of the
symposium will be on formal techniques, their theory, current
capabilities, and limitations, as well as their application to
aerospace, robotics, and other safety-critical systems.

We encourage submissions on cross-cutting approaches that bring
together formal methods and techniques from other domains such as
probabilistic reasoning, machine learning, control theory, robotics,
and quantum computing among others. Topics of Interest

Topics of Interest:

* Formal verification, including theorem proving, model checking,
and static analysis
* Techniques and algorithms for scaling formal methods, including
but not restricted to abstraction and symbolic methods,
compositional techniques, as well as parallel and distributed
* Use of formal methods in automated software engineering and
testing Model-based development
* Formal program synthesis
* Runtime monitoring and verification
* Formal approaches to fault tolerance
* Formal analysis of cyber-physical systems, including hybrid and
embedded systems
* Formal methods in systems engineering, modeling, requirements
and specifications
* Applications of formal methods to aerospace systems
* Use of formal methods in safety cases
* Use of formal methods in human-machine interaction analysis
* Formal methods for multi-core, GPU-based implementations
* Application of formal methods to emerging technologies, e.g.,
mobile applications, autonomous systems, web-based application

Important Dates
Dec 7, 2012 Paper Submission Deadline
Jan 28 - Feb 1, 2013 Rebuttal phase
Feb 15, 2013 Acceptance Notification
March 15, 2013 Camera-Ready Version Submission
May 13 - 16, 2013 NFM Symposium

There are two categories of submissions:

* Regular papers describing fully developed work and complete
results (15 pages).

* Short papers describing tools, experience reports, or
descriptions of work in progress with preliminary results (6

All papers should be in English and describe original work that has
not been published or submitted elsewhere. All submissions will be
fully reviewed by members of the program committee. Papers must use
Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) style and be put
in PDF format, as the papers will appear as a volume in Lecture Notes
of Computer Science. Submissions are now open through easychair.


NFM 2013 will be held at NASA Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, CA
on May 14 to 16, 2013. There will not be a registration fee charged to
participants. All interested individuals, including non-US citizens,
are welcome to attend, to listen to the talks, and to participate in
discussions; however, all attendees must register. Details coming soon
on Registration. Program Chairs
