ICFEM 2012:
14th International Conference on Formal Engineering Methods
12th-16th, November, 2012
Kyoto Research Park, Kyoto, Japan

ICFEM will come back to Japan in 2012 again! Since 1997, ICFEM has been
serving as an international forum for researchers and practitioners who
have been seriously applying formal methods to practical applications.
Researchers and practitioners, from industry, academia, and government, are
encouraged to attend, and to help advance the state of the art. We are
interested in work that has been incorporated into real production systems,
and in theoretical work that promises to bring practical and tangible

ICFEM 2012 will be hosted by National Institute of Advanced Industrial
Science and Technology (AIST) and Japan Advanced Institute of Science and
Technology (JAIST), which will be held in Kyoto, JAPAN. Kyoto is the
ancient capital of JAPAN, where you can find  many historical sites which
have been designated as World Heritage there. We are looking forward to
your submissions.


Submissions related to the following principal themes are encouraged, but
any topics relevant to the field of formal methods and their practical
applications will also be considered:

* Abstraction and refinement
* Formal specification and modelling
* Software verification
* Program analysis
* Software model checking
* Formal approaches to software testing
* Formal methods for object and component systems
* Formal methods for cloud computing/robotics/cyber-physical systems/
  medical devices/aeronautics/railway
* Formal methods for self-* systems 
* Formal methods for software safety, security, reliability and
* Experiments involving verified systems
* Formal methods used in certifying products under international standards
(ISO 26262, IEC 61508, etc)
* Formal model-based development and code generation


Submissions to the conference must not have been published or be
concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be
judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical
and presentation quality, and relevance to the conference. The proceedings
will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Papers should be written in English and not exceed 16 pages in LNCS format
(see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). Submission
should be done through the ICFEM 2012 submission page
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icfem2012), handled by the
EasyChair conference system.
