                         Call for Papers: FormaliSE 2017
5th FME Workshop on Formal Methods in Software Engineering (27th May 2017)
  co-located with ICSE 2017 (May 20th–May 28th), Buenos Aires, Argentina
                             http://www.formalise.org/ <http://www.formalise.org/>

FormaliSE is a yearly workshop on Formal Methods in Software Engineering.
FormaliSE is organized by FME (Formal Methods Europe) and is co-located with
ICSE (International Conference on Software Engineering). The main goal of the
workshop is to foster integration between the formal methods and the software
engineering communities. The lack of formalization in key places makes software
engineering overly sensitive to the weaknesses that are inevitable in the
complex activities behind software creation. This is where formal methods (FMs)
have a huge opportunity.

AREAS OF INTEREST include but are not limited to:
* Integration of FMs in the software development life cycle
* Ability of FMs to handle real-world problems;
* Scalability of FM applications
* Prescriptive/objective guidance in the use of FMs
* Performance analysis based on formal approaches
* FMs in a certification context 
* “Lightweight” or usable FMs
* Rigorous software engineering approaches and their tool support
* Case studies
* Model-based approaches, including model-driven development
* Formal approaches in the development of cyber-physical systems
* Experimental validation

The PROGRAM features invited talks and presentations of submitted papers. The
workshop also includes a panel discussion, addressing the subjects that came up
during the workshop.

We invite you to SUBMIT:
* FULL PAPERS that must describe authors' original research work and results.
* CASE STUDY PAPERS that should identify lessons learned, validate theoretical
  results (such as scalability of methods) or provide specific motivation for
  further research and development.
* RESEARCH IDEAS: FormaliSE encourages the submissions of new research ideas in
  order to stimulate discussions at the workshop.

PAPERS are limited to 7 pages using ACM Formatting Guidelines see for details:
http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html <http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html>.
Papers must be unpublished original work and should not be under review or
submitted elsewhere while being under consideration. PC members will review all
submissions. Papers will be judged on the basis of their clarity, relevance,
originality, and contribution to the field. Submissions must be in English and
in PDF format through online upload to the workshop submission website at the
following URL: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=formalise2017 <https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=formalise2017>. 

All ACCEPTED CONTRIBUTIONS are PUBLISHED as an ICSE 2017 Workshop Proceedings
in the ACM and IEEE Digital Libraries. The official publication date of the
workshop proceedings is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM
Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of
ICSE 2017. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent
filings related to published work. Authors of accepted papers are expected to
register and present their paper at the Workshop.

20 January 2017: submission deadline for workshop papers
17 February 2017: notification of acceptance/rejection to authors
27 February 2017: camera-ready copy deadline for workshop paper

OC/PC CHAIRS are Stefania Gnesi (ISTI-CNR, Italy), Nico Plat (Thanos, The
Netherlands) and Hernán Melgratti (ICC- UBA-CONICET, Argentina). We can be
