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:
Submitted papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication.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: easy char (click here) 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.
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 Press. Presented 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. Besides, best papers will be invited to be expanded and considered for publication in a special issue of a journal published by Springer (pending).
