The aim of the ERCIM FMICS workshop series is to provide a forum for researchers who are interested in the development and application of formal methods in industry. In particular, these workshops bring together scientists and engineers that are active in the area of formal methods and interested in exchanging their experiences in the industrial usage of these methods.
These workshops also strive to promote research and development for the improvement of formal methods and tools for industrial applications.
Topics include, but are not restricted to:
- Design, specification, code generation and testing based on formal
- Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis,
certification, debugging, learning, optimization and transformation
of complex, distributed, real-time systems and embedded systems.
- Verification and validation methods that address shortcomings
of existing methods with respect to their industrial applicability
(e.g., scalability and usability issues).
- Tools for the development of formal design descriptions.
- Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal
methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research
- Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process
and associated costs.
- Application of formal methods in standardization and industrial

Submissions must be made electronically.

Papers should be up to 16 pages in LNCS format, with the names and affiliations of the authors and a clear and informative abstract. Additional details may be included in a clearly marked appendix, which will be read at the discretion of the program committee. All submissions must report on original research.

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.

Case study papers should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical results (such as scalability of methods), or provide specific motivation for further research and development.

Publication of the workshop proceedings in the Springer series Lecture No tes in Computer Science (LNCS) is envisaged.

FMICS 2009 is part of the first Formal Methods Week (FMweek), which will bring together a choice of events in the area, including FM 2009 (16th symposium on Formal Methods), TESTCOM/FATES (conference on Testing of Communicating Systems and workshop on Formal Approaches to Testing of Software), FORMATS (Formal Modelling and Analysis of Timed Systems), PDMC (Parallel and Distributed Methods of verifiCation), and the REFINE Workshop.
