1 ABOUT FM 2016

  The 21st International Symposium on Formal Methods (FM 2016) will take
  place at St Raphael Resort in Limassol, Cyprus, 7-11 November 2016. FM
  2016 is the latest in a series of symposia organized by Formal 
  Methods Europe, an independent association that encourages the use
  of, and research on, formal methods for the engineering of
  computer-based systems and software. The symposia have been notably
  successful in bringing together researchers and industrial users
  around a programme of original papers on research and industrial
  experience, workshops, tutorials, reports on tools, projects, and
  ongoing doctoral work.

  For this major event, we are now inviting proposals for workshops that
  will complement the main FM Symposium.

  The purpose of the workshops is to provide an informal setting for
  workshop participants to discuss technical issues, exchange research
  ideas, and to discuss and/or demonstrate applications. These workshops
  may be driven by fundamental academic interests or by needs from
  specific application domains. We encourage a diversity of workshops
  relating to different varieties of formal models.

  FM workshops will be held immediately before the main symposium, on
  7-8 November, 2016.


  Researchers and practitioners wishing to organize a workshop are
  invited to submit proposals in PDF format by e-mail to the Workshops

  Nearchos Paspallis (npaspallis at uclan.ac.uk) and Martin Steffen
  (msteffen at ifi.uio.no).

  A proposal should not exceed three pages and should include a draft
  call-for-papers containing at least the following information:

  1. Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying
     the goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.

  2. The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the
     Programme Committee (PC) chairs, i.e., the workshop
     organisers. Moreover, a tentative list of workshop PC members
     should be given. We suggest one or two PC chairs and at least 10 PC
     members coming from different countries.

  Moreover, the following additional information is requested:

  1. If the workshop has taken place before: How often has the workshop
     taken place so far? Which conference(s) has the workshop been
     colocated with so far? Number of participants in the last

  2. A discussion of the proposed format and agenda.

  3. The proposed duration (half, one or two days).

  4. Procedures for selecting participants and papers.

  5. Potential invited speakers.

  6. Expected number of participants.

  Each workshop programme chair will be responsible for the following:

  1. Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for
     their workshop.

  2. Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference
     web page and programme, and providing a workshop web page the
     conference can refer to for details.

  3. Selecting the papers for the workshop proceedings and providing the
     camera ready copies ready for publication.

  4. All advertising of the workshop.

  5. Appointing session chairs, etc.

  The local organisation of the conference will take care of the
  production of informal or electronic workshop proceedings, assuming
  that the proceedings are camera ready.
