Scope and topics

Formal methods seek to contribute to the engineering of dependable systems by applying sound techniques based on computer science fundamentals. Complex systems often involve different formalisms to deal with the modeling of their different aspects, as each formalism is specific to only some system aspects and none is perfectly supporting all aspect constructs and their related semantics. Accordingly, different analysis techniques are required to check the different system views and verify different kinds of properties. Formalism integration is intended to support coherent specification and analysis of different aspects of a system. The FMi workshop aims at further research into hybrid approaches to formal modeling and analysis. It seeks contributions from researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of integrating methods, either formal or semi-formal, for system development, covering all engineering development phases from user requirements through design and analysis techniques to tools. The workshop also encourages new initiatives of building bridges between informal, semi-formal, and formal notations. Authors are invited to submit both research and tool papers.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

-          scalable formal methods,

-          component-based specification and analysis,

-          integrated software/hardware specification and analysis,

-          hybrid and embedded systems modeling and analysis,

-          object and multi-agent systems modeling and analysis,

-          requirement specification and analysis,

-          software and hardware specification, verification, and validation,

-          theorem proving and decision procedures,

-          formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance,

-          formal methods for re-engineering and reuse,

-          formal languages integration,

-          semi-formal (UML, SysML, …) and formal model integration,

-          informal and formal language integration,

-          integration of formal methods into software engineering practice,

-          integrated analysis techniques,

-          tools integration,

-          integration of formal methods in education,

-          integration of formal methods in health,

-          integration of formal methods in industry,

-          integration of formal methods in security.


Paper submission      

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. Submissions will undergo a rigorous review process handled by the Technical Program Committee. Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Only electronic submissions in PDF format through the EasyChair submission site: will be considered. Papers must be in English, up to 8 pages in IEEE format, including references and appendices. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as formatting guidelines, can be found on the paper submission instructions available at the main conference website.


Paper publication        

At least one of the authors must register and present the paper, if accepted. Registered papers will be published as workshop papers in the IEEE IRI conference proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society PressSelected papers will be invited to be extended and considered for publication in a special issue of Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing, edited by Springer (confirmed) and Information Systems Frontiers, edited by Springer (pending).
