FoVeOOS 2010

International Conference on Formal Verification of Object-Oriented Software

June 28-30, 2010, Paris, France




Formal software verification has outgrown the area of academic case studies,
and industry is showing serious interest. The logical next goal is the
verification of industrial software products. Most programming languages
in industrial practice (such as Java, C++, and C#) are object-oriented.

The International Conference on Formal Verification of Object-Oriented
Software (FoVeOOS) aims to foster collaboration and interactions among
researchers in this area.


The conference is organised by COST Action IC0701
but it goes beyond the framework of this action. This conference is open to
the whole scientific community around the following topics, and also
encourages people close to industrial applications to submit papers and

The Action may provide travel grants (see the web page for details).


Topics include but are not limited to:
  * Logic-based methods for formal
    - verification
    - specification and description
    - construction,
    - analysis and validation,
    of object-oriented software
  * Technologies such as
    - logics
    - calculi
    - type systems
    for the formal verification of object-oriented software
  * Modularisation and verification of components
  * Verification of
    - adaptable and reusable
    - concurrent
    - distributed
    object-oriented software
  * Tool descriptions
  * Experience reports
  * Case studies


April 26, 2010   Abstract submission deadline

May 31, 2010     Acceptance notification
June 14, 2010    Final version due
June 28-30, 2010 Conference


Submissions should describe previously unpublished work (completed or in
progress). Contributions are invited in these categories:

A Research papers (reporting original theoretical and/or experimental
  research or applications)
B System descriptions
C Experience reports, case studies
D Position papers and brief reports on work in progress

Papers must be written in English and (in all categories A-D) not exceed
15 pages in LNCS format
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).  All
submissions will be reviewed by peers, typically members of the program

Submission of papers is via EasyChair at


The conference will use a two-stage process for the publication of
proceedings, allowing for a very brief period between submission of
papers and
the conference and, thus, a speedy dissemination of results.

All accepted papers will appear in pre-proceedings published as a Technical
Report that will be available at the conference.

Post-conference proceedings are planned to be published within
Springer's LNCS
series (final approval pending). For this second stage, papers will be
selected as follows: first, authors of papers that were definitely
accepted in
the first stage will submit a new version with minor revisions only; second,
authors of papers that were only conditionally accepted (typically position
papers) will be able to submit a new version with major revisions, which
be reviewed again.


Based on the comments given by the reviewers in the first stage of
and the presentation at the conference, the programme committee will give a
best student presentation award. Eligible papers are those whose
is given by a PhD student.
