13th International Conference on  Software Engineering and Formal 
Methods (SEFM 2015)

York, UK
7-11 September 2015



Abstract submission: 20 March 2015
Paper submission: 27 March 2015
Notification: 15 May 2015
Camera ready: 12 June 2015


The conference will bring together researchers and practitioners from 
academia, industry and government, to advance the state of the art in 
formal methods, to facilitate their uptake in the software industry, and 
to encourage their integration within practical software engineering 
methods and tools.

Authors are invited to submit full research papers describing original 
research results, case studies and tools; and short new 
ideas/work-in-progress papers describing new approaches, techniques 
and/or tools that are not fully validated yet.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following 
aspects of software engineering and formal methods:

* Formal requirement analysis, modelling, specification and design
* Abstraction and refinement
* Formal methods for probabilistic verification and synthesis
* Programming languages, program analysis and type theory
* Formal methods for self-adaptive systems, service-oriented and cloud 
* Formal aspects of security and mobility
* Model checking, theorem proving and decision procedures
* Formal methods for real-time, hybrid and embedded/cyber-physical systems
* Formal methods for safety-critical, fault-tolerant and secure systems
* Software architecture and coordination languages
* Software verification and validation
* Component, object and multi-agent systems
* Formal aspects of software evolution and maintenance
* Formal methods for testing, re-engineering and reuse
* Light-weight and scalable formal methods
* Tool integration
* Applications of formal methods, industrial case studies and technology 
* Education and formal methods
* Interactive systems and human error analysis
* Formal methods for HCI
* Formal analysis of human behaviour


Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the 
program committee. They will be evaluated on the basis of originality, 
contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and 
relevance to the conference.

Papers should conform to the Springer LNCS style specified at


and should describe, in English, original work that has not been 
published or submitted for publication elsewhere. PDF versions of papers 
should be submitted electronically via EasyChair, using the link:


We solicit three categories of papers:

* Research papers should describe fully developed work and should not 
exceed 15 pages. Authors of papers reporting experimental work are 
strongly encouraged to make their experimental results available to 
reviewers. Case study papers should describe significant case studies 
and lessons learned.

* Tool papers should describe an operational tool and its contributions. 
Tool papers should not exceed 15 pages. Please include the URL of the 
tool (if available).

* New ideas/Work-in-Progress papers should describe new approaches, 
techniques and/or tools that are not fully validated yet. Papers in this 
category should not exceed 6 pages.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the 
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
