Dear Colleagues,

For those working on (behavioural) types and/or (web) services: 
submission deadline is June, 19.

- WS-FM (http://wsfm2014.haifa.ac.il/) and BEAT 
(http://beat2014.behavioural-types.eu/) combine forces this year
- Event of the MADRID MEET 2015 (http://mafalda.fdi.ucm.es/madrid2015/), 
a scientific week on formal and quantitative analysis of systems, 
performance engineering, computer safety, and industrial critical 
- Submission deadline just after CONCUR's notification 
- Double submissions with the workshop FOCLASA 
(http://foclasa.lcc.uma.es/) encouraged.

Please contribute!
António and Jan Martijn

Abstract submission: June 17 (Wednesday)
Paper submission: June 19 (Friday)
Notification: July 20 (Monday)
Camera Ready version: August 3 (Monday) 	


The Symposium on International Symposium on Web Services, Formal Methods and Behavioural Types (WS-FM/BEAT 2015) results from joining the Workshop on Web Services and Formal Methods (WS-FM) and the Workshop on Behavioural Types. The former was mainly devoted to formal aspects of service-oriented and cloud computing. The latter addressed type languages and systems to specify, characterise, and reason about dynamic aspects of program execution. In both cases, the main working setting of the research area covered is that of component-based distributed and concurrent software systems, services and clouds, simply referable as large software systems. Behavioural systems may also refer to enterprise and business process modelling and management systems. These kind of systems share characteristics: they are distributed, collaborative, and communication-centred. Moreover, the compatibility of their components is crucial to ensure overall correctness  and reliability.

The aim of this event is to bring together researchers and practitioners in all aspects of large scale behavioural software systems and its applications, in order to share results, consolidate the community, and discover opportunities for new collaborations and future directions.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:
* Foundational aspects of large behavioural software systems
* Specification, verification, analysis, and testing of large behavioural software systems
* Language-based approaches to large behavioural software systems
* Security, trust, QoS, dependability, and privacy in large behavioural software systems
* Ontologies, standards and technologies for large behavioural software systems
* Case-studies on formal methods in large behavioural software systems
* Innovative application scenarios of large behavioural software systems


We solicit the submission of original and unpublished contributions not under review for publication elsewhere. Concurrent submissions to WS-FM/BEAT and FOCLASA (a CONCUR workshop - http://foclasa.lcc.uma.es/) are however, not only allowed, but in fact encouraged, for those papers that may potentially enhance both venues. Authors of such double submissions should identify them to the Program Chairs at the time of submission (by choosing the "Regular paper submitted also to FOCLASA” category in the EasyChair site). Reviews may be shared between WS-FM/BEAT and FOCLASA. Submissions accepted by WS-FM/BEAT will be considered automatically withdrawn from FOCLASA.

Submissions may take two forms: full papers and 
short papers.
- Full (regular) papers must be prepared in LaTeX using the LNCS-style 
format and they should not exceed 20 pages (typeset 11 points). All
accepted papers will be included in the proceedings.
- Short papers are concerned with work-in-progress or tool papers and
they should not exceed 6 pages. Short papers might not be included in 
the proceedings (a selection is invited for the proceedings).

All contributions will be evaluated by at least three reviewers, chosen 
by the Program Committee. Contributions should be submitted through the 
EasyChair online submission system in PDF format. 
Submission of a paper involves a firm commitment that at least one of 
the authors will attend and participate in the workshop in case the 
paper is accepted.


All accepted regular papers will be included in the proceedings, which 
will be published after the symposium as a volume of the LNCS series.
Selected short papers will be invited to the proceedings.

An open call for a special issue of a high-quality journal on the topics 
of the symposium is envisaged.
