ICFEM Doctoral Symposium 2019 : The 21st International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods - Doctoral Symposium
Call For Papers
Background and Objectives
The ICFEM 2019 Doctoral Symposium is an international forum for PhD students working in all areas related to formal methods. The technical scope of the symposium including but not limited to the following:
Abstraction, refinement and evolution
Formal specification and modeling
Formal approaches to software testing and inspection
Formal methods for self-adaptive systems
Formal methods for object-oriented systems
Formal methods for component-based systems
Formal methods for concurrent and real-time systems
Formal methods for cloud computing
Formal methods for cyber-physical systems
Formal methods for software safety, security, reliability and dependability
Tool development, integration and experiments involving verified systems
Formal methods used in certifying products under international standards
Formal model-based development and code generation
The goals of the symposium are:
• To facilitate networking within the scientific community by bring together PhD students and established researchers in the formal methods community.
• To enable PhD students to interact with other fellow PhD students and to stimulate exchange of ideas, suggestions, and experiences among participants.
• To provide PhD students an opportunity to present, share, and discuss their research in a constructive and critical atmosphere.
• To provide PhD students with fruitful feedback and advice on their research approach.
We seek PhD students who have either determined the direction of their thesis research (probably with some preliminary results already published), but who still have substantial work to complete, or PhD student participants who are in the early stages of their dissertations. It is not required to have a paper accepted for the main conference in order to participate to the ICFEM 2019 Doctoral Symposium.
The Doctoral Symposium papers will be published in Springer in the LNCS volume as part of the main ICFEM 2019 proceedings.
Papers should be written in English and not exceed 4 pages in LNCS format (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). Preferably, submissions should include: Title of the paper and the author name; Problem statement, motivations, and progress; Current development and related work; Proposed solutions, approach and methodology, and their significance; Current results and assessment; Future work. The paper should be submitted in PDF format via easychair (https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=icfem2019) selecting the “ICFEM 2019 Doctoral Symposium” track.
