Workshop: 2-3 November

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.
- 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 directions.
- Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the
     development process and associated costs.
- Application of formal methods in standardization and
     industrial forums.

Submissions must be made electronically through the
EasyChair system.

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

The workshop proceedings will be published in the Springer
series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

FMICS 2009 is part of the first Formal Methods Week
(FMweek), which will bring together a choice of events
in the area, including TESTCOM/FATES (Conference on
Testing of Communicating Systems and Workshop on Formal
Approaches to Testing of Software), FACS (Formal Aspects
of Component Software), PDMC (Parallel and Distributed
Methods of verifiCation), FM2009 (Symposium of Formal
Methods Europe), CPA (Communicating Process Architectures),
FAST (Formal Aspects of Security and Trust), FMCO (Formal
Methods for Components and Objects), and the REFINE
Workshop. For the latest information on FMweek, see
