of the authors attends the conference to give the presentation.

Submitted papers must be in English presenting original research. They
must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere (this
does not apply to abstracts). In particular, simultaneous submission
of the same contribution to multiple ETAPS conferences is

Submissions must follow the formatting guidelines of Springer's
Lecture Notes in Computer Science and be submitted electronically in
pdf through the EasyChair author interface of the respective

Submissions not adhering to the specified format and length may be
rejected immediately.

FASE and POST will use a double-blind review process.

The proceedings of ETAPS 2018 will be published in *gold open
access*. The copyright of the papers will remain with the authors. It
is most likely that the proceedings will be published in the Advanced
Research in Computing and Software Science (ARCoSS) subline of
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

- Research papers

FASE, FoSSaCS and TACAS have a page limit of 15 pp (excluding
bibliography of max 2 pp) for research papers, whereas POST allows at
most 20 pp (excluding bibliography of max 2 pp) and ESOP 25 pp
(excluding bibliography of max 2 pp).

Additional material intended for the referees but not for publication
in the final version - for example, details of proofs - may be placed
in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page
limit. ETAPS referees are at liberty to ignore appendices and papers
must be understandable without them.

In addition to regular research papers, TACAS solicits also *case study
papers* (at most 15 pp, excluding bibliography of max 2 pp).

Both TACAS and FASE solicit also *regular tool papers* (at most 15 pp,
excluding bibliography of max 2 pp).

- Tool demonstration papers

Submissions should consist of two parts:

* The first part, at most 6 pages, should describe the tool
   presented. Please include the URL of the tool (if available) and
   provide information that illustrates the maturity and robustness of
   the tool. (This part will be included in the proceedings.)

* The second part, at most 6 pages, should explain how the
   demonstration will be carried out and what it will show, including
   screen dumps and examples. (This part will be not be included in the
   proceedings, but will be evaluated.

ESOP and FoSSaCS do not accept tool demonstration papers.

-- SATELLITE EVENTS (14-15 April, 21 April) --

A number of satellite workshops will take place before and after the
main conferences: CMCS, CREST, DICE, FAEPAS, GALOP, HotSpot,

ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

The ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has gathered scientists from
different areas of computing over the last thirty years. The forum represents
an opportunity to interact with different communities sharing an interest in
applied computing.

SAC 2018 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing
(SIGAPP), and will be hosted by the Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour
(UPPA), Bayonne, France.

Software Verification and Testing Track

The Software Verification and Testing track aims at contributing to the
challenge of improving the usability of formal methods in software
engineering. The track covers areas such as formal methods for verification
and testing, based on theorem proving, model checking, static analysis, and
run-time verification. We invite authors to submit new results in formal
verification and testing, as well as development of technologies to improve
the usability of formal methods in software engineering. Also are welcome
detailed descriptions of applications of mechanical verification to large
scale software. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

– model checking
– theorem proving
– correct by construction development
– model-based testing
– software testing
– symbolic execution
– static and dynamic analysis
– abstract interpretation
– analysis methods for dependable systems
– software certification and proof carrying code
– fault diagnosis and debugging
– verification and validation of large scale software systems
– real world applications and case studies applying software testing and
– benchmarks and data sets for software testing and verification

Submissions Guidelines

Paper submissions must be original, unpublished work. Author(s) name(s) and
address(es) must not appear in the body of the paper, and self-reference
should be avoided and made in the third person. Submitted paper will undergo a
blind review process. Authors of accepted papers should submit an editorial
revision of their papers that fits within eight two-column pages (an extra two
pages, to a total of ten pages, may be available at a charge). Please comply
to this page limitation already at submission time. Accepted papers will be
published in the ACM SAC 2018 proceedings.

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of papers, posters, or
SRC abstracts in the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending
SAC MUST present the work. This is a requirement for the presented work to be
included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of registered papers,
posters, and SRC abstracts will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE
digital library.

Student Research Competition

As previous editions, SAC 2018 organises a Student Research Competition (SRC)
Program to provide graduate students the opportunity to meet and exchange
ideas with researchers and practitioners in their areas of interest.
Guidelines and information about the SRC program can be found at
http://www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2018/ <http://www.sigapp.org/sac/sac2018/>.

Subject: [FME Events] Third CFP IMPEX2017 : First International Workshop on
 Handling IMPlicit and EXplicit knowledge in formal system development.



    IMPEX 2017

      First  International  Workshop  on   Handling  IMPlicit  and
      EXplicit knowledge in formal system development.

      Co-located with ICFEM 2017

      Xi'an, China, 13-17th November 2017


      Background and Objectives

Most of methods based on proof systems, such as theorem provers, model
checkers or any  reasoning systems, rely on the definition and use of
basic theories (logic, algebraic, types, etc.) in order to support the
expression  of  proofs  in  formal  developments. They  also  propose
mechanisms and  operators to define  new theories (inside  contexts or
theories or species, like in Event-B, COQ, Isabelle/HOL, Focalize,
Nuprl, ASM, PVS,  etc.) or to  enrich their  basic theories. In
general, the definition of a  theory is based on mathematical  and
logical abstract concepts that support the formalisation of the studied
hardware and/or software systems. In other  words, the  semantics of
such formalised systems is expressed in this theory;  i.e. the used
theory  gives the semantics  of  all the  systems  formalised  in  this
theory  and the required properties of these systems  are expressed and
checked in the same  theory.   This  kind   of  semantics  represents
the implicit semantics. Note that the same semantics  is used for a wide
variety of heterogeneous hardware and/or software systems.

Generally,  hardware   and/or  software  systems  are   associated to
information  issued   from  the  application  domain   in  which they
evolve. For example, one integer variable  (typed by an integer in the
theory) may denote a temperature  expressed in Celsius degrees, whilst
another one  may denote  a pressure  measured in bars at  the extreme
limit  of the  left  wing of  an  aircraft in the  landing phase.  In
general,  this   kind  of  knowledge   is omitted  by   the  produced
formalisations  or their  formalisation is  hardcoded in  the designed
formal model. If this knowledge carried by the concepts manipulated in
these formal models is still in the  mind of the model designer, it is
not explicitly formalised and therefore, it  is not shared in the same
way as  for implicit theories that  can be  reused in  several formal
developments. This   kind  of   knowledge  represents   the  explicit

The objective of the meeting is  to discuss on mechanisms for reducing
heterogeneity of models  induced by the absence  of explicit semantics
expression in the formal techniques used to specify these models. More
precisely, the meeting  targets to highlight the  advances in handling
both implicit  and explicit semantics in formal  system developments.

*List of Topics*

Discussions,  presentations and  more  generally, contributions
shalladdress one or more topics described below

  *    Show  that  when making  explicit  the  domain knowledge in
    formal models,  several relevant  hidden (because  they are not
    explicitlymodelled in classical formal  modelling languages)
    properties can be handled
  * How  knowledge models,  like ontologies,  can be  handled in formal
    system developments?
  *   What are the candidate formal  modelling languages and techniques
    to  model  such domain  knowledge? What  are the reasoning
    capabilities entailed by these modelling languages?
  * Define  relevant  case studies  that  illustrate  the need to  make
    explicit domain properties?
  * Define composition  mechanisms to handle domain  knowledge in formal
    modelling techniques.   Beyond the  technical results targeted  by
    the proposed  meeting,   social,  economic  and resilience
    impacts  are expected. These impacts are built  on the foundations
    of heterogeneity reduction and formal model alignment.

*Submission Guidelines*

Papers should be  written in English and not exceed  15 pages for long
papers   and   8   pages   for    short   papers   in   EPTCS format
(http://www.eptcs.org/ for details).  Submission should be made
through       the IMPEX       2017        submission       page

EasyChair conference management system.


  *      Preliminary proceedings, including all the papers selected for
    the workshop, will be available electronically at the workshop.

  *      Post proceedings will be published  after the workshiop with
    Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS).
