FoVeOOS 2011

2nd International Conference
Formal Verification of Object-Oriented Software

October 5-7, 2011, Turin, Italy




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
  * Teaching formal verification


August 3, 2011      Abstract submission deadline
August 10, 2011     Paper submission deadline
September 7, 2011   Acceptance notification
September 21, 2011  Final version due
October 5-7, 2011   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Submissions should describe previously unpublished work (completed or in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

All submissions will be reviewed by peers, typically members of the
program committee.

Papers must be written in English and not exceed 18 pages in LNCS
format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). 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 will be published within Springer's LNCS
series. For this second stage, papers will be selected as follows: first,
authors of papers that were definitely accepted in the first stage will 
a new version with minor revisions only; second, authors of papers that were
only conditionally accepted (typically position papers) will be able to 
a new version with major revisions, which will 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.
