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 
* 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We solicit the submission of original and unpublished contributions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 sending and email to the
PC_Chairs of WS-FM/BEAT and FOCLASA). 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considered automatically withdrawn from FOCLASA.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.
