HATS International School on Formal Models for Objects and Components
(HATS-FMOC 2012)

Bertinoro, Italy
September 24-28, 2012


General Information:
Modern software systems are complex, and often structured as
composition of a high number of components or objects. The school
focuses on formal models and programming languages for such system,
including methods and tools for specifying and designing them, and for
ensuring behavioural and security guatantees. A special emphasis will
be given to methods for ensuring the adaptability and evolvability of
the systems, with which the systems can cope with changes in the
environment as well as with modified and new requirements.

The School is organised by the project HATS (Highly Adaptable and
Trustworthy Software using Formal Models), a EU Integrated Project
within the FET "FOREVER YOURS" programme, in agreement with the
EternalS Coordination Action (CA) that coordinates the research among
the four projects of the "Forever Yours" initiative: LivingKnowledge,
HATS, Connect, and SecureChange.

The School will feature lectures by world-renowned experts within the
area of formal models for objects and components. Involved working
areas are, e.g., type theory, programming languages, formal methods,
concurrency and software engineering.
