*** OVERVIEW ***

The SaFoMe workshop aims at providing a forum for people from academia
and industry to communicate their latest results on theoretical
advances, industrial case studies, and lessons learned in the
application of formal methods to safety certification, verification
and/or validation in (but not limited to) component-based systems.

In many safety-critical applications, such as automotive, aerospace,
and railway, there is a need to enhance the quality of industrial
products while also reducing the risk of fatalities and injuries. To
achieve this, cost-efficient methods supporting the
development and operation of safety-enabling embedded systems are
required. Several approaches have been proposed to achieve this. Among
them, component-based methods have been identified as suitable to
improve both reuse and the maintainability of systems. Formal methods
instead have traditionally been focusing on rigorous specification,
validation and verification of system requirements. Some formal
methods, such as contract-based techniques, are applied also to
component-based systems. However, the majority of component-based
approaches have concentrated on the functional properties of
systems. Much less work has considered how they can be applied to
other non-functional properties, including dependability properties,
such as safety, security, reliability, performance, and availability.
Among these, the interdependence of safety and security is an
increasing concern for safety-critical applications.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, formal languages and
verification techniques for:

* Design, validation, and verification of safety-critical component-based
* Verification and analysis of fault-tolerant systems.
* Design and verification of real-time, embedded safety-critical systems.
* Formal methods for safety and security.
* Formal methods for Quality-of-Service analysis of safety-critical
software systems.
* Contract-based design and verification of safety-critical embedded
* Formal methods in the certification of safety-critical systems.
* Formal methods applied in the context of industrial safety-critical case
* Experience reports of using formal methods for certification (e.g., DO
* Formal methods for the safety in Internet of Things (IoT).
* Formal methods for reuse of safety-critical software components.

Accepted papers will be informally published in conference proceedings.
PDF versions of papers should be submitted through EasyChair
submission system
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=safome15). The maximum size
is 14 pages using the Springer LNCS
author's guideline
If you
submit a paper and it gets accepted, at least one of the
(co)author(s) is expected to be present at the workshop to present the

Submitted papers will be reviewed by three members of Program Committee
(or their sub-reviewers) and selection of accepted papers will based on
relevance, quality and originality of the submitted papers.

Extended versions of selected contributions will be submitted
to a Special Issue in Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical
Engineers, Part O: Journal of Risk and Reliability (SAGE, print ISSN:
1748-006X) URL: http://pio.sagepub.com/ (under negotiation).
