+++++++ Preliminary Call for Papers ++++++++

The aim of the FMICS workshop series is to provide a forum for
researchers who are interested in the development and application of
formal methods in industry.  The aim of the AVoCS workshop series is to
contribute to the interaction and exchange of ideas among members of the
international research community on tools and techniques for the
verification of critical systems.  In 2016, FMICS and AVoCS join their
forces to hold a workshop combining their themes on Formal Methods and
Automated Verification. For FMICS, this will be the 21st, for AVoCS the
16th edition.

In particular, FMICS-AVoCS 2016


aims to bring together scientists and engineers that are active in the area of formal methods, develop tools
and techniques for the automated verification of critical systems, and are interested in exchanging their experiences 
in the industrial usage of these methods and tools.

Important Dates

Abstract submission: April 18, 2016
Paper submission: April 25, 2016
Notification: June 19, 2016
Final version due: July 10, 2016
Workshop: September 26-29, 2016

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Design, specification, refinement, code generation and testing of
critical systems based on formal methods.
- Methods, techniques and tools to support automated analysis, certification,
debugging, learning, optimization and transformation of critical systems, in
particular distributed, real-time systems and embedded systems.
- Automated verification (model checking, theorem proving, SAT/SMT
constraint solving, abstract interpretation, etc.) of critical systems
- Verification and validation methods that address shortcomings of existing
methods with respect to their industrial applicability (e.g., scalability and
usability issues).
- Tools for the development of formal design descriptions.
- Case studies and experience reports on industrial applications of formal
methods, focusing on lessons learned or identification of new research
- Impact of the adoption of formal methods on the development process and
associated costs. Application of formal methods in standardization and
industrial forums.

Paper Submission

Submissions must describe authors' original research work and results.
Submitted papers must not have previously appeared in a journal or
conference with published proceedings and must not be concurrently
submitted to any other peer-reviewed workshop, symposium, conference or
archival journal. Any partial overlap with any such published or
concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.

Submissions should clearly demonstrate relevance to industrial
application.  Case study papers should identify lessons learned,
validate theoretical results (such as scalability of methods), or
provide specific motivation for further research and development.

Submissions should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the LNCS
style (Springer), and should be submitted as Portable Document Format
(PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site 


All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee who will make
a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and
applicability of the presented ideas and results.
