The 1st Workshop on Logics and MODel-checking for self-* systems (MOD*)

12 September 2014, Bertinoro, Italy

Affiliated with iFM 2014: The 11th International Conference on Integrated Formal Methods

Logics and model-checking have been successfully used in the last decades for modeling and verification of various types of hardware and software systems. While most languages and techniques emerged in a context of monolithic systems with a limited self-adaptability, modern systems require approaches able to cope with dynamically changing requirements and emergent behaviors. The emphasis on system reconfigurability has not been followed by an adequate research effort, and the current state of the art lacks logics and model checking paradigms that can describe and analyze complex modern systems in a comprehensive way. 

This workshop aims at filling this gap by bringing together researchers and practitioners with the goal of pushing forward the state of the art on logics and model checking, with particular attention on the specification and verification of systems in the following (and further) categories: 

self-adaptive systems
self-reconfiguring systems
self-organizing systems
cyber-physical systems
hybrid systems
elastic systems 
multi-agent systems

The workshop focuses on demonstrating the applicability of Formal Methods in practical contexts. Therefore, both methodological/theoretical and industrial/applicative papers are welcome.


June 9, 2014: Abstract submissions
June 16, 2014: Submission of regular papers
July 21, 2014: Notification of paper acceptance/rejection
August 8, 2014: Camera-ready copies of accepted papers
September 12, 2014: Workshop


Authors are invited to submit original unpublished papers. Every submitted paper will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. Accepted papers will be published in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science series (EPTCS).  Authors are invited to submit papers of no more than 14 pages in the EPTCS format style (please use the LaTeX style provided at Proofs omitted due to space constraints can be put into an appendix to be read at the reviewers' discretion. Proofs added into appendix will *not* be published on proceedings. Submissions should be made using the MOD* 2014 Easychair web site:

The authors must be prepared to sign a copyright transfer statement. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to the workshop by the early date, to be indicated by the organizers, and *must* present the paper. 
A special issue with a selection of the best papers on an international journal will be taken into consideration.
